The long saga of the Russia collusion scandal — during which law enforcement, media, political operatives and intelligence assets manufactured a two-year illusion of a Trump-Russia conspiracy that did not exist — raised questions about a new era of political warfare in which false realities could be foisted upon the American public.
The bungled, bloody U.S. exit from Afghanistan now has some fearing the Biden administration practiced deception by omission and commission to create a two-month false narrative that misled Congress and the American public by making the situation in and around Kabul look better than it was.
Two powerful pieces of evidence emerged this week that strongly suggest the Afghan exit wasn’t just a case of incompetence but rather an intentional effort to use PR lipstick to disguise a Biden plan that was secretly willing to accept chaos and stranded Americans as a possible outcome to avoid further military casualties during the exit.
On Wednesday, Reuters published a leaked transcript of a call that quoted Biden asking the soon-to-flee Afghan president Ashraf Ghani to offer a narrative to change the “perception” of the Taliban’s rapid advance in Afghanistan, “whether it is true or not.”
“I need not tell you the 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,” Biden is quoted as telling the Afghan president. “And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
The White House did not dispute the account of the July 23 call, even though it suggested that an American president asked a foreign leader to assist in creating a potentially fake story.
Earlier this week, Biden administration officials also conceded the president granted himself a waiver to avoid providing Congress this summer a legally required report on the dangers of withdrawing from Afghanistan, leaving lawmakers mostly in the dark about a situation in which U.S. confidence in the Afghan government and military rapidly deteriorated.
One act of commission, another of omission that clearly created false expectations and impressions and empowered the president’s top aides — from Jen Psaki at the White House to John Kirby at the Pentagon — to make pronouncements like:
- Every American who wants to come home will be able to do so before Aug. 31.
- Every Afghan loyalist in danger could be evacuated.
- The Afghan army could hold Kabul for months after the U.S. departed.
In the end, none of those pronouncements were true, and the plan failed. Scores of Americans, thousands of Afghan loyalists and $85 billion in prized U.S. military hardware were left behind, Kabul fell to the Taliban before Americas’s departure, and 13 U.S. troops were killed in the single bloodiest American tragedy of the Afghan war in a decade.
Republican and Democratic lawmakers alike are now declaring they felt deceived by Biden and his team.
“This administration has lied to the American people, to Congress, to the world,” Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) told Just the News on Wednesday. “I can’t even begin to tell you how frustrated I have been, my team, my constituents. It has been absolutely, utterly disheartening. We know that there were soldiers that were there, helping getting people through the gates, they were trying to move people. They were kind of beholden to the State Department because State was really driving this operation and they couldn’t process paperwork fast enough.
“It’s heartbreaking because the boots on the ground did their job, and the suits in Washington didn’t.”
Some high-profile Democrats first began questioning Team Biden’s accounts as soon as Kabul fell to the Taliban in mid-August.
“Congress was told repeatedly that the Afghan Defense and Security Forces were up to the task, that it had the troops, equipment and willingness to fight,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menedez (D-N.J.) declared. “To see this army dissolve so quickly after billions of dollars in U.S. support is astounding. The American and Afghan people clearly have not been told the truth about the ANDSF’s capacity and deserve answers.”
Americans expect their president to tell the truth, and new polling reflects Biden has lost the confidence of many voters.
A Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday shows 52% of voters say Biden should resign, while 60% favor his impeachment because of the Afghanistan debacle. Remarkably, 40% of Democrats supported Biden’s impeachment in the survey.
Cammack told Just the News her GOP colleagues in the House are “absolutely” talking about impeachment but don’t have enough Democrats supporting it right now to make it happen.
“There’s absolutely that conversation happening” she told the John Solomon Reports podcast. “And I absolutely hear people loud and clear all across America saying, ‘Why in the hell have we not impeached this guy? Why are we not doing this?’ Folks, elections have consequences, and we don’t have the votes. I don’t care how many Democrats come along and say that they disagree with this president … They will not go against Nancy Pelosi.”
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell agreed with Cammack’s assessment in comments to reporters.
“The President is not going to be removed from office with a Democratic House and a narrowly Democratic Senate,” McConnell said Wednesday. “That’s not going to happen.”
Remarkably, it was the emergence of a transcript of a presidential call two years ago this month between Donald Trump and another foreign leader, Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky, exactly two years ago this month that triggered Trump’s first impeachment and acquittal. The same forces aren’t lining up yet this time.
The transcript of the Biden call with Ghani, however, provides another piece of evidence that the 46th president of the United States and his team may have tried to contrive a narrative that hid the truth about a failed Afghan exit plan.
White House to send more than $300 million in aid to Afghanistan despite Taliban control
The White House announced plans Tuesday to send more than $308 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan as millions face starvation under the new Taliban government following President Joe Biden’s withdrawal.
The assistance would be given by the United States Agency for International Development through “independent humanitarian organizations” to the Afghan people, National Security Council spokesperson Emily Horne said.
The administration has been criticized for sending aid to Afghanistan previously. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) warned that it would be “foolish” and asserted that the Taliban “would take the money.”
“This brings total U.S. humanitarian aid in Afghanistan and for Afghan refugees in the region to nearly $782 million since October 2021, and we remain the single largest donor of humanitarian aid in Afghanistan,” Horne said, adding that the U.S. has also given 4.3 million COVID-19 doses to the Afghan people.
Assistance will “help provide lifesaving protection and shelter, essential health care, winterization assistance, emergency food aid, water, sanitation, and hygiene services in response to the growing humanitarian needs exacerbated by COVID-19 and healthcare shortages, drought, malnutrition, and the winter season,” Horne said.
China sent assistance to Afghanistan last month to help the nation prepare for winter and build ties between the Chinese Communist Party and the new jihadist government.
“The United States is committed to supporting the Afghan people and we continue to consider all options available to us,” Horne concluded. “We stand with the people of Afghanistan.”

The soldier was identified as Spc. Maxwell Hockin, who was assigned to 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. He entered the Army in March 2017 as a combat engineer, Fort Hood officials said Wednesday.
Hockin’s awards and decorations include the Army Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon, officials said.
Hockin had been at the Texas base since July 2017, where he was assigned to the 91st Engineer Battalion.
“The entire Saber family is devastated by the loss of our true teammate and friend Specialist Maxwell Hockin,” Lt. Col. Patrick Sullivan, commander, 91st Engineer Battalion, said in a statement Wednesday. “He had an outstanding work ethic, was a mentor to his peers, and was always willing to help out the team. He will truly be missed. Our thoughts and our prayers are with Maxwell’s family during this difficult time.”
