well sure looks like president biden is um folding to the taliban letting them dictate our exit plans in afghanistan not good joining us now to discuss general jack keane fox senior strategic analyst general keane welcome back um sir can i just ask you um mr uh blanken blinkens uh anthony blinken he said the secretary of state said uh at the beginning of this august 14th there were six thousand americans in afghanistan
00:30
quote who wanted to leave now i i don't know he says 4 500 of them have been evacuated a week ago sir national security adviser jake sullivan said that there were 11 000 americans uh in afghanistan so i'm very confused about these numbers and i fear we're going to be abandoning a lot of americans yeah we're on a cost of one of the most shameful incidents in the history of the united states i mean this is
01:04
this is betrayal by the united states government not only of our afghan partners who are going to be left behind likely now as we understand the numbers by the thousands but certainly american citizens uh as well and to see how other governments have all the other u.s governments have reacted to situations like this and how we have worked so earnestly to get all of our people out what is really happening here and you put your finger on it uh larry
01:36
is this administration and our president they do not have the spine to stand up to the taliban who are now dictating that you have to be out by 31 august and we're not going to cooperate with you that is a completely unsatisfactory answer we have 6 000 troops and the greatest air power in the world at our disposal and that gives us the strength to dictate the terms not the taliban we should be leaving on
02:07
our terms and our terms only but what is really happening what happens here and we have seen it before where leaders get paralyzed larry by the fear and i'm talking a real fear of adverse consequences what's the adverse consequence here that we're going to get in a gun fight with the taliban and there may indeed be casualties as a result of that i thought that was the reason we put the 6 000 troops there backed up by air power to make certain
02:38
that we we got our people out and we were willing to accept the risk the the real dangerous scenario here is not a gun fight with the taliban which believe me we can handle it's the fact that we're going to leave our citizens and our afghan partners behind how in good conscience can we face ourselves after having done something like that and doing it simply because the taliban are dictating those terms to us it is absolutely outrageous that we could submit ourselves to the will and
03:11
the whims of the taliban it makes no sense to me this is the united states of america now i'm with you general well said sir as always look i seems to me this may be the first time in american history we leave americans on the battlefield the battlefield right now is kabul in afghanistan by the way we don't know there may be thousands of americans sheltering in place outside of cabell um ironically the french and the british want to be much tougher and stay much longer and our own people i mean you're getting a lot of quotes in
03:42
the papers everybody knows we're going to have to stay longer than 31 august everyone knows that so why don't we just mobilize the troops clear a path to the airport in afghan in kabul stop these checkpoints how can we let them then the terrorist taliban run checkpoints that stops american citizens not to speak of our afghan friends and in some cases according to the sector um taking away passports and other documents how can we
04:13
we've never looked this week sir we've never looked this week as soon as we got that anecdotal feedback that was coming from all circles you know about the taliban interfering with the access to the kabul airport in other words the roads that lead to the caliph to the airport they had checkpoints up and were doing everything they could to impede people getting access to it as soon as that happened we should open those gates and put our troops on the street and develop safe passages at designated hubs to go pick up people
04:46
i understand we did pick up some people last night that's a good thing and also tell the taliban that we fully intend to pick up our people around the country afghanistan at hubs that we are designating for them to do and if necessary we'll we'll put the security in there to make certain it happens and tell them don't interfere with it or you will you will face the consequences of it this it's shameful what we've done here there was many ways to prevent i think what we're heading to we're eventually going to
05:18
close the gate to that airport as we want our military to get on the airplanes and leave we're not going to take any more people on the other side of that gate even though they may be a documented american citizen or a documented afghan partner and leave them behind and that is absolutely as i said at the outset shameful betrayal of our values and it'll be a stain on our national honor you know for years to come you told me monday sir you told me monday we are
05:49
fighting for american honor i don't think dubai administration understands that i'm sorry i regret to say that but that's what the evidence suggests general keane thank you sir as always we will see lots more of you as this thing unfolds we appreciate your guidance hey sean hannity here hey click here to subscribe to fox news youtube page and catch our hottest interviews and most compelling analysis you will not get it anywhere else
