There were 7,000 NATO troops on the ground in Afghanistan that are getting pulled out. There are thousands of foreign nationals – French, British, German, Canadian, other countries – who are stuck in Afghanistan trying to figure out how to get to the airport, how to get out of there. So, this is not just an American disaster; it’s a NATO disaster. It’s a disaster precipitated by Joe Biden.
