The fallout from the disastrous DOJ report just keeps on coming.
Unable to hide the truth any longer, the DOJ recently admitted that Biden had “diminished capacities” and a “poor memory.”
You don’t say.
It should also go without saying that the DOJ report is widely visible to the entire planet, further emboldening adversaries of the United States.
As declared by multiple defense experts, who are rather aghast at the state of mind of the alleged “commander in chief” of the U.S. armed forces.
For instance, retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, who now serves as a contributor on Fox News, observed that Biden has routinely taken “a long time to make decisions or to do something.”
Quite true. After all, Iranian proxies were just responsible for the deaths of three U.S. soldiers, and Biden took how long to reply?
Bear in mind that Biden likely emboldened them in the first place through his ill-planned decision to release billions to the Iranian regime, shortly before the October 7 terrorist massacre in Israel.
As Putin gathered thousands and thousands of troops at the Ukrainian border, Biden also didn’t do a thing … until after the invasion.
So, yes, Biden surely does like to take his time … With the exception of the abrupt withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, that is.
Michael O’Hanlon, who serves as and director of research in foreign policy, as well as a senior fellow, at the Brookings Institution, sounded off on that utterly disastrous withdrawal, noting that it reflected a clear absence of “intellectual flexibility and the ability to take in new information.”
“On the one hand, much of the discussion seems to focus on Afghanistan, and then-Vice President Biden’s role in the debate about what to do in Afghanistan during the Obama administration. There, Biden lost out to advocates of a large surge and probably felt vindicated when that surge did not achieve the desired results … That said, in my view, he remained a bit stuck in his vision of where Afghanistan was when he mistakenly ordered our withdrawal in the opening months of his presidency,” O’Hanlon mused.
With respect, Biden remains “a bit stuck” in a tad more than Afghanistan.
Heck, he’s prattling on about recent conversations with world leaders, some of whom have not been in power since the 90s and others who have long since been deceased.
That said, Biden clearly lacks the acuity necessary to make rapid, and rational, decisions, as detailed by Kellogg.
“When it comes to national security, you know, it all really comes down to the commander in chief, the president of the United States … You always want your commander in chief to be, obviously, very informed, which the advisers are supposed to do, but able to make very quick, rational, understandable decisions,” Kellogg proclaimed.
The antithesis of the current administration.
“Years ago, in the military, there was a term that was actually used that was called the OODA loop. The OODA loop [stood for] observe, orient, decide, act. What that meant is, frankly, get inside your opponent’s decision cycle. That’s what presidents need to do …
So, if you’ve got a diminished capacity, your ability to make rapid decisions is, of course, questionable. And that’s where you get into trouble with national security,” Kellogg continued, citing the DOJ’s exact characterization of Biden’s long since “diminished” mental functioning.
Especially with a very “risk-averse” administration, as Kellogg plainly declares.
Former Deputy National Security Advisor K.T. McFarland also sounded off even more explicitly to Fox News Digital, noting the obvious nature of Biden’s rapidly progressing dementia.
“Biden’s dementia is plain for all to see, but especially for foreign leaders,” McFarland drawled.
Is it ever. Is it any wonder Putin, Xi, and Hamas/Hezbollah are having a grand old time, in their own absurdly demented way?
Needless to say, the combination of all of the above, plus, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and other avowed enemies of the United States, sets a remarkably dangerous precedent in the imminent future.
Which is potentially irreversible.
“That’s dangerous for two reasons. First, if amplifies the claim that America is a spent power. Chinese leaders have been telling the world for years that America is in irreversible decline, that the future belongs to China. Biden is the embodiment of irreversible decline, giving credence to the idea that America’s supremacy on the world stage is over,” McFarland warned.
Well, the Chinese did invest quite a bit in “Hunter’s” businesses … though one does wonder who the real mastermind was, given Hunter’s routinely addled state.
“Second, because foreign leaders know now is the time to press the U.S., to take advantage of a leader who is not only weak but confused,” McFarland added gravely.
Exactly what conservatives have said all along.
