Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is claiming the Biden administration has it all wrong. And they totally botched the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. On several Sunday shows she blasts Biden for completely surrendering to the Taliban.
She appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” on MSNBC, and on Fox News.
Joe Biden isn’t negotiating with the Taliban, he has completely and totally surrendered to the Taliban. What an embarrassing failure.

“They’re not negotiating with the Taliban. They’ve completely surrendered to the Taliban. They surrendered Bagram Air Force Base, which was a major NATO hub. They surrendered $85 billion worth of equipment and weapons that we should have gotten out of there. They have surrendered the American people and actually withdrew our troops before they withdrew the American people. And they’ve abandoned our Afghan allies who kept people like my husband safe,” Haley said.
At this point, she believes Biden should do “whatever it takes to get our Americans out.”
“This is an unbelievable scenario where literally the Taliban has our Americans held hostage,” she added.
