Biden double crosses France – president's errors have allies questioning his competence

September 19, 2021  •  Fox News

The Biden administration's unforced errors in foreign affairs keep on mounting.

First was the deadly, botched exit from Afghanistan and ensuing humanitarian disaster. Then came the Pentagon's belated disclosure that its Aug. 29 drone strike in Kabul killing 10 civilians, seven of them children, which the Defense Department mischaracterized for weeks, was, in fact, a mistake, or as a Pentagon spokesman put it, a "horrible tragedy of war."

Now, there's the double crossing of France, America's oldest ally.

Remembering and fearing 9/11 here in Kiev, Ukraine

September 11, 2021  •  Fox News

There is a slow moving 9/11 developing here in Ukraine, a threat that if mishandled could produce death and destruction equal to or greater than what the United States endured, and the world witnessed in horrified shock and disbelief twenty years ago.

So concluded many participants at a gathering of former heads of state, current political leaders, historians, and journalists at a conference here in Kiev organized by Victor Pinchuk and the Yalta European Strategy (YES) group he founded 17 years ago.

Protecting New York

September 10, 2021  •  City Journal

On the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, as New Yorkers commemorate those who died in the nation's most devastating terrorist attack, they can also take quiet pride in what hasn't happened since then, or, as President Bill Clinton once put it, the dog that didn't bark. Despite relentless attempts of varying levels of sophistication and competence, neither militant Islamists nor other hate-filled ideological or religious extremists have managed to stage a comparable attack on the city.

Biden's Afghan debacle is devastating
It's been made worse because he won't own his mistakes

August 18, 2021  •  Fox News

While assuring Americans that "the buck stops with me," President Joe Biden spent much of his speech Monday blaming everyone else but himself and his administration for the foreign policy catastrophe unfolding in Afghanistan.

During his defiant, defensive speech, Biden blamed the debacle on former President Barack Obama for having surged U.S. forces in Afghanistan to fend off the Taliban, President Donald Trump for having negotiated a terrible deal with the Taliban committing American forces to leave precipitously by May 1—and, most egregiously, Afghans themselves for supposedly being unwilling to fend off the Taliban's horrifying advance.

Passing the Buck
President Biden blames everyone but himself and his administration for the catastrophe in Afghanistan.

August 17, 2021  •  City Journal

While assuring Americans that "the buck stops with me," President Joe Biden spent much of his speech Monday blaming everyone else but himself and his administration for the foreign policy catastrophe unfolding in Afghanistan. During his defiant, defensive speech, Biden blamed the debacle on Barack Obama for having surged U.S. forces in Afghanistan to fend off the Taliban, Donald Trump for having negotiated a terrible deal with the Taliban committing American forces to leave precipitously by May 1—and, most egregiously, Afghans themselves for supposedly being unwilling to fend off the Taliban's horrifying advance. Only a month ago, Biden justified his decision to abandon the Afghanistan effort by arguing that two decades of American military training and over $1 trillion in economic and military support had left the Afghan government and its military more than capable of defending their country; yesterday, he castigated Afghans for not being able to do so.
