On his last day guest hosting this week, Producer Andrew tackles an action-packed, wall-to-wall Friday news cycle where the ongoing boondoggle in Afghanistan is dominating the international conversation. He walks through the original intent of the mission laid out over two decades ago before unpacking exactly what went wrong and why we didn’t pull out of the mess sooner. He also poses the question asked by Barack Obama’s own SecDef—is Joe Biden an “effective Commander-In-Chief?” What we’re witnessing now proves resoundingly that the answer is ‘No.’ And as all that transpired abroad, troubling new data is revealed at home courtesy of the US Census Bureau. PLUS—a leaked tape from a Biden official who admits that the border crisis is far worse than they are leading us to believe.
