A lot has been said and written about the disastrous situation that has unfolded in Afghanistan over the last 10 or so days, but there are very few articles or interviews that are as poignant and gutwrenching as hearing from the people who are on the ground there, whether it be from reporters like RedState’s Hollie McKay, stranded Americans who had to seek help from members of Congress to get out, the Afghan translators/interpreters who helped the U.S. military there for the last 19+ years but who now fear for their lives, or other Afghans who feel the Biden administration turned their backs on them, leaving them to the brutal whims of the Taliban terrorists who have taken over.
One undated video purportedly taken in Afghanistan in the midst of all the chaos has been gaining traction on social media in recent days, and shows what appears to be an Afghan woman – during what looks like a rally/protest attended by other women – absolutely going off on President Biden by telling him exactly how her country has been turned upside down while he chose to remain on vacation as the situation deteriorated there.
“Biden, listen to me carefully,” she says as other distraught women look on. “You destroyed not Afghanistan but the world. [The] Taliban are best friends with Al Qaeda and ISIS, all they’re gonna do [is] use our land to build, with our resources, to build and destroy the world.”
Her anger building, she went on to tell Biden that, “you, you, you right now are on vacation, and our country was burning and bleeding to death while you’re on vacation, and you call yourself a president?”
Watch the woman’s understandably emotional reaction to all that has happened around her below:

This is just my opinion, of course, but I don’t think it really gets more to the point than that.
Sadly, she’s not the only Aghan woman who has been seen on video in recent days pleading for answers from the Biden administration:
A crying Afghan woman has been filmed begging for help through a fence, shouting, “The Taliban is coming,” as US troops were swarmed by crowds of desperate people trying to flee the extremists’ rule, heartbreaking new videos show.
Videos circulating on social media have captured the chaotic scenes in Kabul as US troops continue to evacuate after the Taliban regained control of the war-torn country.
In one video, a young woman cried as she reached through a fence covered in razor wire toward US troops on the other side.
Here’s that clip:

Absolutely heartbreaking, made all the worse by the Biden administration’s gross ineptitude and lack of a safe, efficient, and coherent exit strategy from the country, which has unnecessarily caused more heartache and cost more innocent lives — all of which will continue to happen as long as the Taliban continues their violent takeover.
