After Joe Biden’s lame speech on Afghanistan on Monday, talking heads at MSNBC tried to spin it as positive.
Brian Williams, speaking to a veteran and former CIA analyst named Mark Zeller, said that it was a good speech and that Biden “owned” the problems in the Afghanistan withdrawal.
Zeller wasn’t buying it, and went off on Williams over how bad the speech was and the withdrawal.

Fmr CIA Analyst Zeller: Biden Lied, No Plan to Stop Allies Being Slaughtered by ‘Nazi’ Taliban
On Biden’s speech, Zeller said, “I was appalled. There was such a profound bald-faced lie in that speech, the idea we planned for every contingency? I have been personally trying to tell this administration since it took office. I have been trying to tell our government for years this was coming.
We sent them plan after plan on how to evacuate these people. Nobody listened to us. They didn’t plan for the evacuation of our Afghan war-time allies. They’re trying to conduct it now at the 11th hour.”
He continued, “I have Afghans on the ground right now who are telling me the Taliban going door to door in Kabul and making lists of people who used to work with us. They’re telling them with smiles on their face, evil smiles. They will be back for them once we leave. So we either take them now, or these people are going to die.
I have been trying to tell anyone who will listen that this is a never-again moment in the making. This is an administration that seems to be a profound champion and defender of human rights. Well, sometimes, human rights have to be defended at the barrel end of a gun. The Taliban are a modern version of the Nazis.”

This clip is 🔥🔥🔥.
Zeller takes a bat to Biden and his failures, as well as the glowing coverage pretending Biden’s speech wasn’t a total disaster. https://t.co/acxvrTXZ4F

Biden deserves every ounce of criticism he will get over this.
MSNBC can’t spin it for him. Everyone sees how awful this was.
