British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is standing firm and has promised to evacuate everyone out of Afghanistan “until the last moment.”
In a video announcement, PM Johnson says the terrorist attack in Kabul only shows the importance of continuing the Operation to the end.
On the other hand, it’s been crickets from Joe Biden today. He plans on speaking at 5 PM ET but it’s too little, too late.
The barbaric terrorist attack in Kabul shows the importance of continuing Operation PITTING to the end.
The majority of those eligible have been evacuated and our teams are getting through to people as fast as they can.
We will keep going until the last moment. pic.twitter.com/JefqWIncnJ

The promise of safe passage from the Taliban has failed. Biden needs to play hardball but won’t. His style is to turn tail and run. A complete failure of leadership.
