10:04 pm
americans out who couldn't get out, they wanted to leave. thousands of afghan allies, too. what youll say? >> i say president biden lied to the american people. he said get everybody out and he didn't. just this morning i was having a back-and-forth with two american citizens outside the gate@kabul international with their children and couldn't get in. american citizens left behind. thankfully congressional offices, nonprofits, veterans groups have stepped up in this vacuum of leadership from this administration and we are trying to smuggle them out but this notion we can trust the taliban, they tell held an american hostagehe for the last year. his name is mark, a navy veteran. they haven't let him go because they are demanding concessions and they want things from us. we've handed them several hundred moreta hostages and evey
10:05 pm
time they want international recognition, foreign currency, economic aid, they can walk down the street and take another one. this is the biggest disaster of this generation and i am grief stricken, heartbroken and mad. it didn't have to be this way. liz: we've never seen anything like this. breaking news, antony blinken will be speaking this hour, the president will address the nation tomorrow, what's your reaction to the pentagon saying this is heartbreak, but couldn't get americans out who wanted out. we got news coming in, senator ron johnson, the subcommittee on investigation, hundreds of americansun on a bus tried to gt into kabul airport but diverted away. what do you say to that? >> terrible failure. the first obligation of government is to ensure the safety and security of its citizens. also unable to guarantee the security of afghan partners in the past ten years.
10:06 pm
it's a moral failure and strategic ramifications. our partners and friends and also our enemies need to understand we are competent andt credible and friends he to trust us and enemies need to fear us. this really shakes that trust. liz: congressman, where is the fire moment for nancy pelosi? why isn't she calling the house back in? every government agency working on afghanistan is now in d.c. but not the house. growing number of republicans, one in ten house republicans, four republican senators going for biden to resign or be impeached. protests at the white house saying don't trust the cow bad. secretary of state says will be looking to do pharmacy with the taliban to get americans out after the deadline, why could we give that power to the taliban? >> where is nancy pelosi?
10:07 pm
the british parliament came in from the german parliament, british parliament condemned biden for putting them in this t position as an ally but at the end of the day going to hear in the next few n days that narrate that there is good terrorists and bad terrorists. they've made us assurances and promises, i don't trust the taliban as far as i can throw them. this administration believes they have economic leverage. but going to get clicked on its head, what the taliban has are hostages and a long history of doing this but this is the same team around biden that was around obama, gandhi, the birds all trade, yank us out of iraq and tax around the world, the iran deal, they believe they can just appease their way and concede theirl. way out of this the terrorists are going to take
10:08 pm
advantage after advantage after advantage and by the way, what a happened in afghanistan doesn't stay in afghanistan. that terrorism will follow us home and america is much less safe in future american soldiers will have to go back to deal with this. liz: polls show americans do not like the biden administration is trying to normalize relations with the taliban. the taliban killed hundreds of americans, just overthrew the government a duly elected government. we have a new g abc pokémon more than eight and ten say keep the troops there until every american is back home safe both. would you keep the troops there? say it's not doable. what you say? >> i think the troops needed to stay longer to guarantee as many evacuations as i could possibly get out.
10:09 pm
if you have any doubt about the politics taliban, look at kabul, this network is one of the most dangerous terrorist organizations and afghanistan and probably around the world so there's no question that relationship between the taliban and terrorism remains. afghanistan is more likely to be springboard or international terrorist attack more likely to be a conduit or radicalizingit ideology likely to destabilize . liz: here's the thing, what paul is talking about, jen psaki is the white house press secretary trying to downplay and claim no one anticipated afghanistan would fall as rapidly as it did when embassy workers inside afghanistan warned last month it's going to collapse.
10:10 pm
the cia last year was saying it would collapse if the troops pull out the list is long. what other mistakes do you see they made? >> that's a bunch of spin and garbage and she should be ashamed of herself. republicans and democrats members of congress started back in aprilng as soon as biden made this decision and sent press conferences, make calls and said this is not going to hold, you have to begin evacuation right now. you're handing these people a death sentence if you leave them behind. they didn't send up an inner agency task force within their own theocracy until june. you are right, intelligence was clear and any veteran who worked rethere knew if you yank the air support logistics court intelligence courtte and maintenance of horribly from the afghan army all at once, they were likely to fail so it's absolutely predictable, preventable, avoidable and this
10:11 pm
blood is going to be on this administration's hand. nott just now but for future attacks and the home and in american soldiers have to go back to deal with it. liz: but congressman, the pentagon spokesman is saying it's not important to get into the liberation of why the evacuation were delayed, how important when hundreds of americans are stranded. also the uk nato said they make a mistake by telegraphing and broadcasting to the world and artificialal set deadline set in stone when it's ay recipe for chaos. we had president biden with the first lady paying respect to the 13 troops killed in last week's terrorist attack. tweeting a photo of the pieces capture gone but never gone. average age 21. dulles was 31. they died for one more but they were born 20 years ago, a deeply emotional type of the president
10:12 pm
criticized for appearing to look at his watch during a ceremony, what is your reaction. >> you have a whole team around a president, none of them have ever served. their academics, political scientists, they don't have a in middles, m east dirt under their fingernails. that's what you are seeing unfold. just like the list of other calamities we saw unfold from the gandhi to the rise of isis. it's the same team and they continue to make the same mistakes. if we are nice enough to adversaries, they will call back, america is the biggest part of the problem in the world and to pull pat back. we are not year end of his administration and look at these disasters. they are not going to leave, congress will and will continue to fight this get our people home. liz: thank you so much for joining us.

10:28 pm
it now a terrorist state nation. he betrayed our allies and left americans behind. my neighbor's my constituents believe this one of the most shameful episodes in american modern history and best president simply is in denial that americans see it this way. liz: kevin mccarthy has said you guys have constitutional responsibility to hold people accountable for afghanistan but media research center is reporting it to pelosi is giving a speech about empowering women from i didn't want mentioned the women suffering in taliban control and afghanistan. what can congress do about oversight here? >> the short answer is we aren't focused right now on pushing this white house toll get the americans and allies out of their safely. that's job one, two and ten
10:29 pm
right now. democrats in the house need to step forward who privately are telling how god awful big evacuation is and how damaging it is, they need to step forward and challenge the speaker. drink with us, let's go back to congress as leader mccarthy said, let us force the white house to stay there and get our americans and allies out. i think that's our best avenue right now. liz: senator ron johnson on the subcommittee an investigation is saying he is demanding the administration turn over internal documents, e-mails, texts about why a bus with an estimated 400 americans returned away from kabul airport. on the house side, will you be sending off request like that to the administration? >> the short answer is yes, during an earlier request from a few days ago from publican leaders both in the house in our
10:30 pm
committees, directing this administration to keep the documents, preserve the documents about this whole evacuation and decision-making. we are going to get to the bottom of this, i don't know democrats were trying us now but when we take back the house we will so it's important. can this story get any worse? everyday and president has betrayed this country in a way many of us never thought we wouldld see. liz: it's unexpected. let's recap the breaking news, antony blinken is supposed to speak this hour, it's apparently calculated. questions arise whether he will take questions from the pentagon reporting none of the hundreds of americans who wanted to leave made it to the kabul airport, not able to evacuate americans who f wanted to leave. we got that and also the spending bill is in jeopardy.
10:31 pm
we've got democrat on the fence. swing democrat saint it's a disaster what's going on, they don't want to be associated with but the spending bill is about and the far left is going to fight over infrastructure this may not happen either. what is your forecast on that? >> i think two things are going on right now. democrats in the house are appealing their oats. speaker pelosi announced few moderate democrats who stood up the challenge her and i think there's a lot of fighting going on right now. the other thing i think the house democrat see is this ersurrender in afghanistan, the last thing we need right now is an economic surrender to china and the rest of the world. these tax hikes will land on small businesses, the middle class and no question will drive u.s. jobs overseas. democrats are starting to understand that. liz: it was an honor to have you

10:38 pm
own secretary of defense that we did not have the capabilities to export american citizens through the taliban around the airport and yet we didn't have those capabilities. why does the united kingdom and france have those capabilities? from the get go, why did they allow an arbitrary date of august 31 by the telegram an enemy, terrorist group in charge most of the country. harking back to 20 years ago which gave us 9/11 and why in the world that this inept biden a ministration allow the air base will be given away easily defendable to runway, 10000 feet long run given a i did they leave $85 of equipment weaponry therefore our enemies to get?

why on earth with a fee given lists of american citizens still there, green card holders afghan allies? frankly, it is inexcusable to be americans there and afghanistan credibility crisis if there's another crisis erupting over the story, it doesn't look good for doctor fauci. his stonewalling and attacking senator rand paul, the washington post did a deep dive and found doctor fauci and the nih did approve nearly $50 million for 18 dangerous gain of function super virus research since 2012. doctor fauci denies that. this is super virus research, genetically engineering viruses to create vaccines and s treatmt but sucked the center of what
10:40 pm
could have caused the pandemic. let me give you this, nih director and doctor fauci weakened oversight of a committee, a board to do controls of this research, they avoided accountability by making up their own definition of what is and is not gain of function research and they basically undercut that committee to fast-track virus research by giving themselves veto power so this is directly what senator rand paul what's going on but doctor fauci denied it. now the doctor fauci saint yes, senator rand paul was reporting is correct, what you say? >> i knew senator paul was correct to begin with. doctor fauci has been consistently inconsistent, he's lied to congress, he's like to the american people. he's taken up every single leftist position and tried to protect this administration and been at thehe same time with a

latest to the kabul airport. they wanted to leave but they were not able to evacuate americans who wanted to leave. they are saying is heartbreaking. your reaction? >> i would say the withdrawal we've seen is disastrous for americans there and kabul as well as others who need to get out. what we know as the t taliban wl control more territory in money and more weaponry than they did on 9/11 and that's a concern for the moment as you look at terrorists direct to the homan, how they can strike in their ability to reach americans here in the u.s. so very concerned about what's going on over there today. liz: the president told abc news august 19 if americans other, we will stay but now he's not staying. he's going to talk tomorrow about why he did not delay thel. withdrawal, how does he get aroundnd this?
10:56 pm
>> i don't know that he doesn't i think that's right the vast majority of americans don't trust this administration when it comes to national security issues whether it overseas on afghanistan or our southwest border so the president has to be upfront what the american people and explain to him how the war is over in afghanistan get thousands -- or hundreds, potentially thousands of americans are still left there and i think the vast majority of americans will not agree with that propositions that the war is over in afghanistan until we bring every american home and that's just duty as commander-in-chief to fulfill that promise. liz: the white house and state department are saying they tried the best they could sending out hundreds of texts trying to find americans, trying to get americans out, now they are doing product efforts with the telegram to try to get them out when the taliban basically has been killings of hundreds of u.s. troops over the years basically overtook duly elected government and overthrow it so
10:57 pm
there's that and a lot of action about what's going on with the fear ofoi terrorism hitting our shores. can you give an update on that story? >> absolutely. again what we know is afghanistan will now likely be a safe haven for terrorism in the taliban or isis k or other terrorist groups that are going to reconstitute themselves there and eventually reached the united states and conduct potentially conduct terrorist attacks here, i think that is the concern. honestly that was a concern 9/11 and that's what we've been battling for over 20 years making sure that doesn't happen, these individuals remain overseas and not attacking home land. since we don't have assets state department, we don't have u.s. assets there in afghanistan, that is the concern from not having the intel for understanding what's going on in afghanistan as the terrorist groups reconstituteit themselves and potentially are a directlv
10:58 pm
