Joe Biden gave a press conference about what’s unfolding in Afghanistan on Friday which was riddled with conflicting pieces of information.
Biden claimed that the Taliban is allowing Americans into the Kabul airport, he suggested that the situation is under control, he said that he has seen no evidence that other countries are upset about the way this was handled.
It was hard to keep up with all the inaccuracies and contradictions.
Jennifer Griffin of FOX News, who has been covering national security issues for years, was left with her head spinning.

Jennifer Griffin: Biden’s remarks on Afghan situation ‘couldn’t be fact-checked fast enough’
Fox News chief national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin said President Joe Biden’s remarks on Afghanistan Friday “couldn’t be fact-checked fast enough in real-time,” telling “America Reports” the president, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the rest of the administration were presenting an “alternate reality.”
Griffin and “America Reports” host Sandra Smith noted that Biden claimed there has been “no question of [US] credibility from allies around the world.” However, in reality, America’s closest friends are harshly criticizing the hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan ordered by the president.
“We also thought America was back, but America is withdrawing,” said French parliament member Nathalie Loiseau in one example noted by Smith…
On “America Reports,” Griffin reported that Biden also was factually incorrect when he claimed the U.S. still has “over the horizon” capabilities in Afghanistan.
“I am having a hard time digesting what we heard because I couldn’t fact check it fast enough in real-time, because there were so many misrepresentations of what is happening on the ground,” she said.

Biden really does not seem to know what’s going on on the ground in Afghanistan.
It’s scary, and the situation is not improving quickly enough.
