Tucker SLAMS Biden For Bragging About Ayman al-Zawahiri Death, ‘Feel safer? Of Course, You Don’t’
Yesterday President Biden announced that Osama Bin Laden’s successor, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was killed via a drone strike in Afghanistan.
However, Tucker Carlson was quick to criticize Biden during his show Monday night.
“It takes a lot of brass to brag about Afghanistan, or even mention the word,” Carlson said.
“[The President’s] withdrawal from that country almost a year ago was the single most humiliating moment in American foreign policy since the fall of Saigon in April 1975,” Carlson continued.
As the Fox News host would point out, Biden’s botched Afganastan strategy “seemed designed to inflict maximum damage to the interests of the United States.”
Carlson slammed Biden for not taking enough time to learn from his administration’s recent mistakes, and instead, jumping into another conflict quicker than Americans are ready for.
Referencing a speech from Biden earlier in the day about the death of the Al Qaeda leader, Carlson questioned his audience about this White House news: “Feel safer?”
“Of course, you don’t,” he immediately interjected. “Nobody does.”
“The reason nobody feels safer is Biden’s response to the disaster in Afghanistan,” Carlson explained.
Others on Twitter highlighted this simple fact too. They expressed their still looming frustrations over the failed Afghanistan withdrawal and emphasized that though Biden is taking credit for this death, he is not the person who deserves the praise and attention.
Are we just going to ignore the fact that one year after Biden surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban, Al Qaeda’s top terrorist Ayman al-Zawahiri was back in Kabul?

If it were up to Joe Biden, Osama bin Laden would still be alive today.
Stop giving him credit for Ayman al-Zawahiri.

“If it were up to Joe Biden, Osama bin Laden would still be alive today,” Brigitte Gabriel wrote on Twitter. “Stop giving him credit for Ayman al-Zawahiri.”
During Biden’s speech about the death of the Al Qaeda leader, he noted that the terrorist was killed over the weekend after being located by the counterterrorism community earlier this year. As he would later note: the previous three administrations had been “relentlessly stalking [Al-Zawahir] for years.”
“We’ll make it clear again tonight,” Biden warned during his speech, “no matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide if you are a threat to our people, the United States will find you and take you out.”
“I authorized a precision strike that would remove him from the battlefield once and for all,” the President added.
Biden also noted that the mission was “carefully planned to rigorously minimize the risk to other civilians.”
On Saturday, at my direction, the United States successfully conducted an airstrike in Kabul, Afghanistan that killed the emir of al-Qa’ida: Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Justice has been delivered.
