elizabeth: welcome to the show you're watching the fox business network we begin with graphic images coming out of afghanistan taliban soldiers detainee people in the streets taking passports, blocking people from leaving at coble airport joining us editor marsha blackburn senate armed services and marine joey jones served in afghanistan i am so grateful for both of you to be on. how could it be the thousands of americans are behind taliban lines with no clear plans to rescue them, how does that happen. >> it is inconceivable that this could've happened, this administration has been so ill prepared for this and we have been asking for weeks and different hearings and i put some of it on my social media today for an exit strategy how do we make certain that we in
this all of our u.s. citizens, are nato partners, or afghan he partners, before you hand this over, it didn't have to be this way, president biden had stayed with the plan the president trump, signature pompeo laid out condition based, you would not have seen this happen in our allies and partners, are nato allies had agreed to this, but instead last night i know the president hadn't talked to any other of the world leaders they are frustrated with them just like the american people and a lot of veterans are frustrated and a lot of our men and women in uniform who are going to have to redeploy to clean up this mess. elizabeth: in shocking and reckless, go ahead. >> it is so reckless.
to turn this over to the taliban to let them take control of the embassy to not give warning to all of the ngos employees, people that have served our u.s. embassy, worked alongside of our troops and we have been working tirelessly to get people out and then we heard today that the liaison office for the house and the senate, the department of state liaison is closed and we are trying to help people find a way to get to the airport and ghetto. elizabeth: is congress right, what is your reaction when you see what's going on how could it be were stranding thousands of americans by tele-be in lines the presidency troops will stay in the news is coming in troops will stay to after the deadline of august 31 until all americans are out we're supposed to trust the taliban saying death to america and shooting at men and
women and children. >> there's a good chance the 20th anniversary of september 11 will be in a standoff with the taliban trying to rescue americans that are stranded in a country that is ran by her most effective enemy in the last 20 years. that solely lies on the shoulders of joe biden in his administration. not to say that the taliban is controlling afghanistan lies on their shoulders but the way that we've done this and leaving this many americans not just afghans but american citizens and we had one "fox & friends" that's one of thousands of don't know how to get to the airport without intercepting the taliban losing their lives in their paperwork along the way. it's a dire situation when you have the state department and the defense department they do different things about that exactly, the gauntlet to get into the airport that's a big
deal about something president biden needs to reconcile. elizabeth: here's the thing the president was vice president under obama and obama said we would go down to 10000 to 100,000 in 2014 he was vice president for eight years senate formulation you can't play the blame game he's been for this for so long let's listen to jake sullivan on what is going on. watch this. >> if is not complete by august 31 and there are americans and african allies who remain there will u.s. troops stay until everyone is out or will they leave. >> i'm not going to comment on hypotheticals but allstate focused on the task at hand which is getting as many people out as quick as possible will take the day by day. elizabeth: this is not playing with the emerging people people are done they don't want this
idiotic false talking point pouring out of the administration you're gonna have a hearing senate foreign relations will have a hearing and so will intelligence pelosi said they will testify as early as next week, will that happen? >> what we need right now is action there are 6000 troops that will be on the ground there people cannot get to the airport they need to have a plan to get people to the airport so they can exit the country. i don't know how far they're going to be able to push that perimeter out i don't know the participation of iran or russia or china in all of this mix that is taken there. but i have talked to so many people that are military veterans and they are saying this entire national security and dod team needs to go because something went terribly wrong
they did not have an exit strategy they had a date on the calendar and they said you have the clock we have the time and they had an exit strategy plan for us in getting us out of there but we did not have a plan how we would get our people are citizens or partners or equipment out of the country this is truly a disgrace and president biden needs to own this instead he's doing a covid workshop today when we have americans who may be losing their lives at the hands of the taliban and there's no acceptance of responsibility and people are so done with these talking points coming from jake sullivan and jen psaki. elizabeth: sullivan is pushing trump russia collision and joey
jones the biden team ignored cia and intelligence warning that basically afghanistan was collapsing into a terrorist stronghold you'll see an interview with president biden the said i didn't make mistakes or see the chaos coming when he's been in the government since the nixon administration. senator biden's old comments are coming to haunt him the mid-70s he said i'm getting sick of hearing about our moral obligation in vietnam. in the atlantic magazine is reporting he was asked about the brutalization of girls in afghanistan and he said we don't have to worry about that nixon and kinzinger got away with that. there's a mindset that people may not understand or have known about with president biden. what do you think? >> when someone tells you who they are, believe them president biden has been consistent for 11
years on his position of afghanistan. i'm not surprised he wants to pull out at all costs there's probably a political decision this is if i'm going to lose it let's do it before the midterms so i can run for reelection i'm sure those played in in the optics of keeping coble and letting go of bagram air base. just understand where we are today there were three press conferences the state department the top of the dod and the president himself and no one can say here with a straight face and say the families of americans in afghanistan or the troops in afghanistan or know any more about the safety of their loved ones, that is malpractice on our top leader that is malfeasance in the biden the administration and i pray for those family members and people over there because their safety is absolutely in jeopardy today because of bad planning if any planning at all. elizabeth: do you agree with the
senator that the teams in the foreign policy and defense team has to go and has to step down as a senator. >> i think a senator would know before i would i was in e-cigs on the ground and i tell you the leaders are the ones that i look for and i met a general that i believed in enough to go to war for an a while and as far as his secretary of defense or chairman of joint chief what her today was a lot of spin a lot of political speak and that's not what i want to hear from a general in the secretary of defense i was disappointed to say the least. >> we misjudged it we own it, here's the plan for getting everybody out, this is how were going to do it, god bless these men and women in uniform and may he protect all of these american citizens that are out there across afghanistan with no way at this point, no information on how to get to the coble airport
shelter in place or try to make your way to the airport. elizabeth: they can't guarantee their safety, this is disturbing senator marsha blackburn and joey jones, thank you we really appreciate you coming on and thank you for your service to our country it's great to have you both on. former white house official under president obama brett bruen says biden must fire jake sullivan this is there's mounting pushback from around the world against the biden administration for putting out false talking points on their role and afghanistan's collapse, you're watching "the evening edit" on fox business. >> he can go back to jimmy carter with hostages we thought that was a great embarrassment and we were pulled out of that by ronald reagan this as many times worse and you dealing with thousands and thousands of americans and others that are stranded in dangerously stranded in afghanistan.

afghanistan can you explain the op-ed? >> absolutely this is something that they pointed out for several months biden has a process problem on his national security council, the information from institutional experts is not gettingng throug. making it into the decisions. and what has transpired over these last several days in afghanistan is just a illustration a tragic illustration of that problem and at the end of the day as i mentioned in the article that decision comes down to the president as national security advisor. he is the one who has got to tell the president, sir, i understand your objective, let me tell you how you get there smartly, strategically, and most importantly safely. elizabeth: okay but you know was vice president under barack obama. in 2014 president barack obama said we will draw down our presence in afghanistan from 100,000 troops to 10,000 troops.
so does the president, doesn't the president, he has been in office since the nixon administration. he has been on senate foreign relations. he knows what is going on in afghanistan. it collapse into a terror strong hold with 20 terror groups with al qaeda and isis. how does he not know that? >> you know, liz, the world has changed rapidly especially in the last several years and you have to have people in the room, in the situation room who understand the changes, who understand the dynamics on the ground. what we've seen unfortunately in the biden administration, both with the nsc and state department and elsewhere, there are a lot of political appointees, a lot of people who served with with me on president obama, a lot of people who spent time on the campaign but not folks who have the relevant experience, who have the relationships in some cases with these counterparts and they didn't get heard in this process. elizabeth: you know what it is? reporters are done with the
topspin. our allies in the uk and germany are done with the topspin. we heard that today. they're done with the self-righteous stubborn vanity of this administration and their talking points. let's listen to this. >> yeah but so there is any protecting power, wide open for anyone wants to go in there, regardless whether built-up barricaded area or not, you basically just took off and left it? >> that is not my question. my question are you planning any transportation for people who need to get to the airport? are you considering a safe zone around the airport, to make it easy for people to get -- >> we have doing everything we can in a challenging and dynamic security environment. >> is that a yes or no question. elizabeth: it's a yes or no question. you know what i mean? it is breathtaking stupid pen does vanity you can do a word salad, everybody will be happy
with your world salad. at the end of the day people know what is going on in afghanistan. we've been at this for 20 years, bret, what do say? >> liz. jackie: i'm not coming at this for a partisan standpoint. i voted for joe biden. i wish him and his team all the success but they have got to level with the american people. they don't acknowledge what went wrong they're not going to fix it ahead of the next crisis. this is the really the point i've been driving at for several months whether on the border issues, refugees, russia, we just have seen too many unforced errors. they have got to fix the process. elizabeth: you know we hear you. instead of teaching the troops about white privilege and beating up on america all the time, you know, we need an american president who does believe in american idealism and american exceptionalism instead of going negative all the time because now you have former defense secretary leon panetta saying this is a national security threat. we lost our partnerships in afghanistan to get information to protect our country. let's watch senator john kennedy
here. watch this. >> it was the biggest terrorist victory since 9/11. jihadists who want to hurt this country and its people all over the world are reinvigorated today. president biden chose to withdraw from afghanistan but there is no reason it had to be so chaotic. we all saw it. the panic, the fear, the chaos, the abandonment of equipment, scrambling to, to destroy classified documents and unclassified documents. thousands of americans and our allies trapped behind taliban lines. no plan for the refugees. elizabeth: okay, bret, i'm so grateful you came on but you see after the fact cleaning up that is being done now. now reports that the white house is going after afghanistan's central bank, nearly 10 billion
in assets. 1.3 billion in gold. trying to shut down imf reserves, half a billion to the taliban. sort of this after the fact kind of cleanup. you've been very good in trying to be honest and come out and come on the show and talk about what is going on but we're in touch with the american people. they're sick of it. >> well i don't find myself on the same side of an issue often with senator kennedy but i do have to agree with him. the consequences, the collateral damage from a reckless retreat from afghanistan is reverberating around the world. i've been on interviews around the world today. this is just going to have catastrophic consequences our standing in the world. our influence. who will want to join the united states on our next mission? elizabeth: yeah. it's a great point. enough about beating up america. we need to project our democratic ideals we're about freedom around the world. this white house has been slamming the u.s. for far too
long. bret bruen, you've been terrific. thanks for coming on the show. good stuff, you're a great writer too. up next former governor mike huckabee. four separate incidents of border patrol getting shot from mexico. republicans are adding that to growing list of democrat failures, defunding the police, high crime and inflation and afghanistan but there is hope. the story next. >> everyone of them are being worked to death. they're overwhelmed. they're doing jobs they're not really supposed to be doing, being pulled off the [engine revving] [car horn and collisions] [tires squealing] just think, he'll be driving for real soon. every new chevy equinox comes standard with chevy safety assist

young and vulnerable girls and turning them into toys for some very evil people and making money off of them. they are exploiting them in a way that is disgusting and degrading and our country is better than that, were not stopping that at the border were letting a happen and this is an administration that has enough problems and i understand and afghanistan that is a full focus and spotlight but i hope we do not forget and in addition to having people come across the border on masks, unvaccinated, filled with covid, we've got people once they get here they will be used as absolute sex sleeves by people who will make money off of very, very vulnerable young girls and that is just disgusting. a lot of read everybody. elizabeth: and drug coyotes and we hear you loud and clear we

store of their buying clothes for their kids to go back to school, inflation is indivisible but very hurtful tax mostly on per-pupil. if people are just enjoying that and love it, that's a wonderful way to run the country, keep the democrats and because they're the ones that are doing it. i'm hoping that newson is booted out next month it be a great reminder to every capital in city hall the people are elected to be public servants not tyrants and kings and rulers but service of people. we are not seeing that. elizabeth: they work for us, we don't work for them. on average 28 seats lost since world war ii for the party in power in the midterms, nancy pelosi has it a vote margin, this is the bright light common sense, that is a hope it is about common sense. now we have president biden talking about taxing or taken

have islam up up again that openly allowed on the very same platforms and all the while we have a president that doesn't have the heart, the courage or anything else to deal with this issue and that let's us all know were big tech is and it's also by their actions lets us know where their leadership is and what's important to them your big tech censoring and censoring many conservatives across the board including the last president of the united states while allowing that kind of thing and of course you have the biden administration 10 - 15000 americans to shelter in place in a combat zone now they can't get to the airport because all the entries are patrolled by the taliban, the enemy and you see
17 leading with afghan citizens on them. we should get every single american out of that country before one afghan citizen steps foot on american airplane. elizabeth: critics are saying this is patricia stuff and twitter says it won't shut down the taliban is social media on facebook did it. if this is a hit to the reputation social media and critics are saying in its coup they are treating to hundreds of thousands of followers in afghanistan helping al-qaeda as it shuts down conservatives here, who would've thought it would come to this, they're basically accusing of helping the taliban taking control of afghanistan the taliban uses social media to put up the government service announcement and authority over women and minorities. silicon valley really wants to be hooked into that, go ahead. >> let's not sugarcoat this when we say the taliban let's remind everybody that it's a terrorist
organization that behead people and throws acid on little girls faces if they try to attend school this is america big tech companies supporting terrorist, that is who they are there showing themselves by their actions every single day. elizabeth: twitter said in his statement that the taliban will be allowed to stay on the platform as long as they don't get overly violent on the platform. that is kind of odd it stopped short of banning the taliban as facebook did, your thought, did they really risk their reputation with this, go ahead. >> they have been risking all along they don't seem to care when they say overly violent understand these are words posted on the media platform but conservatives across the country elected leaders including the last president of the united states somehow it was okay and been okay to be in these people, what kind of writer group is violence, i wonder what their
standards are just knowing this is a terrorist organization, just knowing that this is a tears organization this speaks to the downfall that behead people and chops fingers off and like i said throws acid on the faces of little girls, i'm not sure whether invited to be on the platform ever to begin with. elizabeth: is exposing it's about money. thank you for joining us and thank you for your service to our country come back soon it's good to see you, look at the story did roy murdoch, the growing number of democrat led cities that are reversing the defund push as crime rises, they said we got it wrong, keep your fox business. >> the public is waking up and they know defund the police

consequence this is a total loser of a policy andnd then rather than going backwards we need to hire more cops to get back on the street. elizabeth: why did the loudest voices in the room get to hear everybody else were talking about the loudest voices and now there showing to be the wrong there effectively admitting their wrong. were talkingg. mayor bowser the new york mayor bill de blasio leaders in atlanta, seattle, portland, oakland california, the majority of u.s. voters believe crime is out of control, why do the loudest voices in the room who get a fraction of the vote get to dominate in her everybody else. >> that the difference between the lower minority in the silent majority has been pretty quiet about this as all the mayhem has been unfolding, the minority people not a larger number but the ones in the streets screaming and yelling and hollering for defunding the police and so on and we saw
after the george floyd i think a lot of politicians were scared and buckled under the pressure people want law and order andrd they're not under the streets making at lot of statues and that's an unfortunate reality of the political affairs. it's gotten to a point that it's gotten so bad that the far left cannot nor this any longer. elizabeth: it seems like allno f that is going away critics say demands to defund the police were not really hearing that much and it sounds increasingly unhinged when violent crimeme is rising and you're right to point out the polls, the democratic candidates in swing states and districts are trying to distance themselves y from this, remember you and i talked about this democrat national convention they hardly talked about crime and violence and rioting and they talked more about defund the police, the president and the vice president talked about supported and many top democrats supported it to in the house in
the senate. >> i think that is true, year ago when the democrats had their convention literally there was no mention of the crime the riots, the attacks and people killed in the george floyd righn so many cell phone cameras and security cameras we have footage of all the things that were seen right now and it becomes impossible in new york a couple of days ago somebody with an atm and somebody attacked them with a hatchet of all things down in the financial district, when you see footage like that and you cannot pretend this is not going on where people can see with their own eyes the bloodshed with the result of the democrat policy and revealed itself that party of crime and i think the pay a serious price of the polls as they should. elizabeth: come back soon it's great to have you on former president trump slamming

elizabeth: back with elizabeth: texas attorney general ken paxton, i would like you to y listen to this from former f president trump i like your reaction to the soundbite. >> you have the worst people in the world there empty in their jails into our country this is like the southern border but it's handled worse nobody handle the southern border worse than him we had the most secure border now the most worst border we've ever had. afghanistan is the exact same thing. to think of this we have a military, i got it reduced to 2500 soldiers and they were doing a good job it was fine and the smaller force. elizabeth: i'm not sure it was fine but what she reaction to former president talking about the border in afghanistan saying the president has botched both. >> is pretty obvious it's right we never had this many people crossing the border and we never
had this trouble with the cartel now as soon as the president starts changing thing in afghanistan we ended up with a disaster on her hands and you can see the video footage of what happened and it's not good. elizabeth: the president claims is highly unlikely the taliban would overrun afghanistan, the spotlight on how he's been equally incompetent although long in his handling of the southern border his approval rating is going down washington post in the abc news poll only a third approve of him in the handling of the situation at thh border and multiple polls show this. >> i don't think i could imagine a most americans could imagine it being handled worst andd as bad as it is. it's not getting better it's getting worse month by month over 200,000 apprehensions in june it and as time goes on were
gonna see the consequences of the fentanyl and human trafficking it's going to be over the country along with the spread of covid. elizabeth: you and i have been talking about the border for five years, the president claimed in the spring nothing has changed with what's going on at the border when asked about the surge he claims that happens every solitary year, it does not happeneded every year the 2 million people try to cross or apprehend it does not happen every year that we have a 21 year high in crossing that is flat out wrong what he's saying people are sick of the topspin is a result of the president canceling trumps border policies like remaining mexico it is so bad home and security has to expand the y axis to capture the record number of illegal border crossings your thoughts about the president top spending this. >> is not telling the truth and you can talk to border patrol agents and the one that they pushed out the door he told me
he had been trying to institute things that work and he had no conversations about things that would work he was told to stop doing things that were effective, clearly the biden administration wants us to happen and then they lie about the numbers. then you have to look at the numbers from one year ago to today and they are massively worse like nothing we've ever aseen before. elizabeth: talk to us about why now for incidents in a weeks time this is disturbing stuff where border patrol has been shot out from across the border from mexico this happened twice in texas and twice in california what is happening here. >> the cartels arere emboldened because there being encouraged by the biden administration they're making so much money. i predict josie more and more with more drugs and more crime and we will have people die not just from covid from being shot we have tremendous risks on the border and it'll spread throughout the united states as my prediction and we don't do
something drastic to stem the tide of what the biden administration has done. elizabeth: who's going to get shot, what are you worried about their. >> i'm worried about people on the border and are border patrol they're not allowed to do their job these days and i a think the cartel is making more and more money, billions and there to be more emboldened tool take chancs and make people pay the price if they don't like what's happening along their border is certainly not our border anymore. elizabeth: tell was quickly give us a quick rundown of border neighborhoods and communities. >> there being overrun there being overrun with people coming across the border they don't know what to do with them were responsible for education, law enforcement, healthcare and covid and being infected and a lot of these people are being transported to cities all over america including some of our
cities without any knowledge from the public with the media about where there being sent in their being released. elizabeth: ken paxton will have you back on thank you for coming in, thank you for watching i am elizabeth macdonald and you been watching "the evening edit"t" on fox business that does it for us we hope you have a good evening and join us again tomorrow't night. ♪ ♪ ♪. larry: hello everyone welcome back to "kudlow" i am larry kudlow. the afghanistan contact catastrophe dominates the news as it should. this evening former director of national intelligence john radcliffe, he worked with president trump in the negotiation process for the u.s. pullout with the taliban. mr. ratcliffe is going to tell us as a former insider and somebody still in touch with the intelligence community what he's learning and what his thoughts. right at
