Former Navy Seal Calls Out Biden, Addressed Nation "As Biden Should Have"

Biden and his administration have received sharp criticism from veterans and those currently in the military for their handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

A SEAL's Version

One critic, a retired Navy SEAL, put out his own version of how he felt the speech should have gone. The video, released on Instagram, subsequently went viral as Jocko Willink talks to the American people as if he were the president.

The video was captioned, "If I were president, and I had put our country into the current situation in Afghanistan, I would tell America, our allies, our enemies, and the world, something like this….” In the video, shot in black and white, Willink takes responsibility for the blunders made during the withdrawal.

“Good evening. I wanted to give you an update on the current situation in Afghanistan. As you know, we were set to leave Afghanistan this month, and as we began the final drawdown, I made some critical errors.”

Strong Finish

The strong opening was quickly followed up by some proper accountability and reasoning. The three-and-a-half-minute video came on the heels of Kabul falling to the Taliban and the subsequent chaos that has been seen as people attempt to flee the country.

One of the main points of the video is that Willink accepts the majority of the blame and admits that "tens of thousands of Americans" as well as allies are "stranded." He also talks about the steps he would take to clean up his mess.

“In the next 48 hours, America will be in control of most major airports in Afghanistan. Any resistance we meet from the Taliban or otherwise — when we seize these airports — will be destroyed completely and without mercy. Anyone who interferes with these operations will be killed."

He also offered Afghanistan continued support for as long as the enemy is "a threat to humanity or the good people of Afghanistan." Finally, he said, “May God bless America, and may God have mercy on the souls of our enemies because we will not.”

Jocko Willink's address is how a true leader and anyone in his administration should address their nation amid a crisis they created. Instead, the American people are left with vague answers and strange comparisons. Instead of a marathon run of pass the buck, the U.S. and its allies deserve a whole lot better.

    1. Too bad it is only a mock-up speech. You will never hear anything like that from the pervert in the white house.. he needs to be tried for treason and the murder of innocent Americans... and finally stand before a firing squad!!!

      1. AMEN to that Patty Ann, my thoughts exactly! He's a Criminal that stole the Election! He's NOT our President, he's Destroying America so China can walk in and make us Communist! That's what the Plandemic is all about, making us obedient communist!! We need a Revolution to TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY!!!!

  1. Maybe not for President, but how about the Secretary of Defense or even the Secretary of State. We have tried a woman as the Secretary of State, and now someone lacking the guts to tell the President where the bear shits in the woods, Maybe old Jocko would do what's best for the American People, instead of the "gentleman" holding that slot right now.

  2. the tree of liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants...and it's already too late

    1. Let us all hope it's not too late. Dark clouds here and ahead. Biden is the biggest bungler in our nation's history. He's not in charge at all, there are unelected people in the shadows pulling his puppet strings. He can't even tie his shoes.

  3. There ya go!Someone finally with the balls to speak out
    and tell it as it all unfolds.This gentleman has the integrity
    to help all AMERICAN citizens and others caught by
    the stronghold of the Taliban. Destroy and destroy these
    monsters.Thank you for your wisdom and God bless you!

  4. George Bush was my president and did start a campaign to stop the terrorist from attack against us again. Obama was the next president and apologized to the terrorist supporters of the world for giving freedom to the people and helping them to make lives for themselves. His VP used the power of his office to get his hands on deals for his own sake and now those people are wanting to get a pay back! Now JOE BIDEN has sacrificed our Military personnel and the people of Afghanistan to pay back this debt.

  5. Sound like something our President Trump would say! Biden, (I cannot call him President as he was not legally elected), would never say anything like this as he is bought and paid for by the Muslims and their supporters the Chinese.

  6. Where's Harris on this issue? Where's Pelosi stand? Does Schumer support Biden's reckless, thoughtless and insane withdrawal from Afghanistan? (And would he have supported Donald Trump, if Trump had pulled this same stunt?) NO!

    No one could possibly state (honestly) that the withdrawal was well orchestrated. I NEVER DEFEND BIDEN, but in all honesty, he shouldn't have been placed in the position to withdraw from Afghanistan in the first place. Bush and Obama are ultimately responsible. We should never have sent troops to Afghanistan in the first place. We should have employed special forces to rid the world of Bin Laden, then we should have left the country the next day.
