Biden Pressed Afghan President To Create Perception the Taliban was Losing

Joe Biden in a recent speech tried to use lies and misdirection to put a bow on his deadly, failed withdrawal from Afghanistan. Only one problem…

He’s had to do so many Presidential addresses since this crisis began three weeks ago, that the American public didn’t care to tune in. Do you know how I know? Twitter. Twitter is the official liberal echo chamber. And while Biden was speaking, he wasn’t even trending there, In fact, the only trend relevant to his speech was ranked #11 and it was… #BidenWarCrimes

And when he was done, he didn’t have the courage to face the American people and take questions. He ran, as the press shouted questions at him.



A leaked phone call between Joe Biden and the former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani from late July shows Biden was desperately trying to control the world’s “perception” of the chaos that was quickly unfolding as the Taliban swept through Afghanistan. Biden also offered aid that was contingent on Ghani publicly changing the perception “whether it is true or not.” Quid pro quo?

Details: An anonymous source gave Reuter’s transcripts and audio from Biden’s 14-minute phone call on July 23, three weeks before Ghani fled the country. During most of their call, Biden stressed political strategy and messaging tactics. Here are the key pieces:

“Perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban. And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

Biden told Ghani that he should gather prominent Afghan political figures to give a press conference, saying “that will change perception, and that will change an awful lot I think.”
Biden offered aid if Ghani could publicly project he had a plan to control the spiraling situation in Afghanistan. “We will continue to provide close air support if we know what the plan is.”
Ghani warned Biden: “We are facing a full-scale invasion, composed of Taliban, full Pakistani planning and logistical support, and at least 10-15,000 international terrorists, predominantly Pakistanis thrown into this.”

Context: To this day, Biden repeats the claim that “nobody could have known” the Taliban would take over Afghanistan so quickly. But the quote above from Ghani proves he’s lying.

Quid pro quo? In early 2020, Trump was impeached over a phone call with the Ukrainian President where he asked them to look into Hunter Biden’s shady business deals. If that was impeachable, surely offering to trade military aid for the need to “project a different picture” should also be impeachable, right?

Who leaked? This leak likely came from someone in the U.S. intel community. This tells me that Biden’s own DOJ is not happy with the way he’s shifted the blame on them throughout this crisis.
