  1. 2:58 the anonymous 'Dissent Cable" open to diplomats is an internal memo to the Secretary of State dated July 13th 2021 is a significant story NBC simply glances over to talk about the Taliban going door to door and what's going wth that?

  2. Please.!.The White House lies. Democrats party with their friends. Pathetic. Remember this " Never underestimate Joe Biden's ability to Screw up a Situation ". The Only thing Obama ever said I agree with.

  3. The War is Gonna Start Again! Terrorists are gonna come to the United States and start ambushing the police academies and FBI academy. With weapons and Grenade attacks like RPGs. That would be sad. This is why I dont like war. There would be so many casualties before they even graduate.

  4. Cumo is sooooo happy right now. Watch this will be his excuse to stay in office. Watch out New York. IMPEACH HIM NOW !!!!!

  5. I wonder if the stadium games have started. You know the ones where the Taliban force Afghan people to fill up a football/soccer stadium and watch while they shoot random people in the head. I wonder if they charge for seating and sell food and drinks. If so I'm sure coca cola makes a good buck that day. Just saying. :-/

  6. Taliban took back their own country, the whole world went berserk. Israel took over other’s country, the whole world still silence…

  7. Again slow to heed and slow to respond! God grant nerves and boldness to all to strive and rise above al evil, against humanities! Thanks! Amen and Amen!

  8. Should we be concerned about the people being rescued are vaccinated or not. I mean. India'a covid went through the roof, And the death toll was off the charts. I mean they're pretty much not too far from one another. It's surprising that there's no reports on the health conditions in regards to this.

  9. Obviously we need to take back those cities and rescue the people that are hiding of Biden dosent want to do it then take him out of office.

  10. How many talaban are coming here that’s my question 🙋‍♀️ I’m glad we are giving this people a place to go ! But I’m just 😟 concerned
