The Gateway Pundit’s above report reads (all emphases mine):
‘Former British politician and Brexit leader Nigel Farage joined Carl Higbie on The Kelly Report on Monday to discuss Joe Biden’s historic failures in Afghanistan. During their discussion on the US exit from Kabul Nigel Farage warned that the UK will refuse any military interventions with the US as long as Joe Biden is in charge.
Nigel Farage: “When Boris Johnson made a desperate phone call to Biden he didn’t get a response for 40 hours… The result of this is any new military engagements that they want us to engage in we simply will not do with this man in charge… I can’t even see a future for NATO… I would not trust America under this administration.”

‘The projection of unity from the global coalition to defeat IS came as the Pentagon faced a backlash from Tory MPs over the leaked minutes of classified calls among American commanders that took place last week.
‘The conference call transcripts were said to cite the UK evacuation effort as the reason for keeping open Abbey Gate at Kabul airport, where 13 American personnel were later killed by a suicide bomb.
‘However, a UK Government source hit back at the claim, insisting: “I don’t think it was just the UK using the gate.” The Pentagon said the Politico story was based on “unlawful disclosure of classified information”.
‘A flurry of diplomatic activity took place on Monday, aimed at building international consensus on Afghanistan. In New York, the UK’s ambassador to the UN joined her counterparts from the four other permanent members of the security council to discuss the situation. Britain and France are spearheading a UN motion to create a safe zone at Kabul airport to protect humanitarian operations…’
[RSC LATEST] ‘Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) says the Biden withdrawal and capitulation to the Taliban on Monday “was a shameful day.” A national-security calamity of this magnitude demands an accounting, and it should start at the top.
Wall Street Journal “It’s a day that will live in infamy as thousands are left behind. Incredibly, Biden plans to rely on the mercy of the Taliban to get the remaining people out, and by paying diplomatic ransom.”
The Washington Post reports that, amid the Afghan government’s collapse, the Taliban offered to let the U.S. provide security in Kabul.
Biden said all he needed was the airport. Biden also chose to rely on the Taliban for security around the airport—with deadly results for 13 young American servicemen and women. This also meant many Americans could not get to the airport because they were stopped by Taliban roadblocks.
WSJ: August 31 was the arbitrary deadline President Joe Biden set when he thought he would be able to boast on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 that he had ended a “forever war.” He refused to extend the date despite pleas from NATO allies and knowing the date was too soon to evacuate the deserving.
His deadline meant that the evacuation failed as much as his withdrawal strategy did.
An unknown number of Americans—perhaps a few hundred—weren’t able to leave on the last flights. Nonprofit groups estimate that as many as 60,000 Afghans who fought or assisted the NATO mission were left behind.
Many are in hiding amid reports that special Taliban squads are searching for the names on lists they may have acquired in the willy-nilly U.S. withdrawal. Many will be tortured and killed, and their families too.
Biden insisted on a rapid, complete departure, despite the recommendation of most advisers to keep a residual force. He insisted on leaving Bagram and other airfields, taking U.S. contractors who were needed to keep the Afghan air force flying.
After the government fell, Biden refused to alter his plan in order to create safe spaces beyond the Kabul airport to help with the evacuation.
That would have required more troops and Biden was set on rapid withdrawal to vindicate his original decision.’
