Former Afghan interpreter says he feels ‘betrayed by the West’

An anonymous Afghan interpreter blasted the Biden administration for betraying him and other Afghans like him. He made an appearance on CNN Tuesday, while protecting his identity for safety.

“To be honest with you, all the Afghans, including me and everybody, we are feeling that we were actually betrayed by the West,” the interpreter told host Jake Tapper. “Working with the U.S. and the West, we worked with them, we were betrayed by them.”

Meanwhile, the country is being invaded by the Taliban. “We are invaded by Pakistan and we are ignored by the United Nations,” the interpreter said. As a result, they point the finger at the U.S. government. “So we are blaming everybody. I do blame the Afghan government as well for not talking to the people, for not telling what was going on. But we are blaming the West a lot for what’s been going on in Afghanistan.”

The segment is CNN’s latest effort in criticizing the Biden administration over the fallout in Afghanistan. Earlier this week, CNN’s editor at large Chris Cilliizza wrote a scathing op ed on the president. According to him, “the situation was totally and completely out of control.” Then, the network featured a segment comparing President Biden’s previous predictions and promised compared to the current situation.

Political pundit Dinesh D’Souza tweeted out a link to the segment, calling it a “devastating takedown of Biden presidency.” However all the negative coverage doesn’t seem to sway Biden, who is reportedly currently on vacation. He briefly paused his trip to double down on his decision to withdraw in a press conference.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
