McCaul Knocked The Wind Out Of Blinken With One Question, His Silence Said It All

on

Texas Republican Michael McCaul hit Secretary of State Antony Blinken with several questions but one shocked Blinken into silence. Reports claim that Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, threatened Joe Biden following the mishandling of Afghanistan.

“Bagram went down, the Embassy went down, and we went dark. We have no eyes and ears on the ground. We’ve lost intelligence capability in the region. That includes Russia, China, and Iran as you know. This is a national security threat as China moves in, for all I know, they may take over Bagram airbase, but this over the horizon capability, I believe is exaggerated, it’s not a viable option. It’s too far away. Did you negotiate with countries like Uzbekistan, or Tajikistan to put an ISR capability there?” McCaul asked during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Monday.

Adding, “And my last question, is it true that President Putin threatened the president United States, saying he could not build intelligence capabilities in the region?”

Blinken paused for a second and responded, “this is an… this is an important question and one that in its detail and substance, I think we need to take up in another setting for reasons I know that you very much appreciate. Let me just say this very broadly, and you know this very well, given your focus and expertise on these issues.”

Blinken responded to the first question, “The terrorist threat has metastasized dramatically over the last 20 years. And it’s most acute in places like Yemen, like Libya, like Iraq, like Syria, like Somalia, and, of course, we have much greater and different capabilities than we had 20 years ago in terms of dealing with that threat. And in many countries around the world, we deal with it effectively with no U.S. boots on the ground.”

He concluded, “We lost some capacity for sure in not having those boots on the ground in Afghanistan, but we have ways and we are very actively working on that to make up for that, to mitigate for that, to make sure that we have, you know, eyes on the problem to see if it reemerges in Afghanistan and to do something about it.”

Watch

Blinken intentionally ignored the question about Putin’s reported threat which only served to give validity to its claim. If it is true, then what is the White House planning to do about it? Democrats may not like it but the American public deserves to know because this could easily turn sour and affect us all.

Biden is a coward on the world stage and our enemies know it! He has put America and the world at risk and left us and our allies open to terrorist attacks. Is he truly that stupid or was this a plan to weaken our country from without and within?
