  1. The military could have gone in in Bengasi, but hillary was so busy trying to get her ass protected shye figured she would just lie about the alll matter and let those Americans stay there and die. She is a disgraceful bitch

    1. I was thinking the same thing and the 13 marines Biden got killed not to mention all those people who got on the outside of the airplane.

  2. If it's bad enough that the Troops are being deployed, then it's already time to get the Hell out of there. Dicking around, waiting for the situation to get worse is stupid and very poor policy on Biden's part. Someone needs to tell the Demented Dipschit to schit or get off the pot.
    This is an example of why he's been Wrong on every Foreign Policy issue the US has faced for 50 years.

  3. Sounds very much like Afghanistan and the Biden team, along with the U.S. State Departments attempt to get more Sudanese into the U.S. that are invented.

  4. I certainly hope beyond all hope that Bidet has NOTHING to do with the evacuation.
    If he does he will leave BILLIONS of dollars of OUR equipment and get hundreds of
    OUR citizens killed!
    Reminiscent of HIS Afghanistan debacle!!!!!
