What Biden Told Afghan President To Do Should Be Criminal

President Joe Biden asked the now-departed Afghan president to establish the "perception" that his government was capable of holding off the Taliban - a sign he knew it was only a matter of time before the US ally fell to the Islamic group even while reassuring Americans at home that it would not happen.

In the last phone call between Biden and his Afghan then-counterpart Ashraf Ghani, the American president said they needed to shift the attention of the Taliban's rapid advance "whether it is true or not," according to citations published on Tuesday.

The call took place on July 23 - weeks before the downfall of Kabul - but Biden on Tuesday restated his statement that his team was caught flat-footed by the fast Taliban takeover of the country.
