Vice President Kamala Harris does not speak much about national security, nor any other pressing matters, and her comments on the escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine may be an indication as to why that’s the case.
Vice President Kamala Harris was clearly ill prepared to discuss the Ukraine crisis with reporters at the Munich Security Conference in Germany. The Vice President took a laid back, deflect approach with a lot of “I mean” and “listen” and “guys” in hopes of distracting everyone from noticing her lack of knowledge.
“I mean, listen, guys, we’re talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris said responding to a question about how the Biden administration saw the situation’s “endgame” playing out.
“I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about,” Harris went on. “It’s been over 70 years. And through those 70 years … there has been peace and security. We are talking about the real possibility of war in Europe.”
Uh, yeah, that’s what everyone is gathering to discuss, madam vice president. One Twitter user jumped on Harris writing, “Did I just watch Kamala Harris claim there has been peace in Europe for 70 years?”
One perfect description for whatever it is that Harris was trying to say is “word salad” tweeted by former GOP House and Senate candidate from Pennsylvania, Sean Parnell. “This word salad … may God help us all,” wrote Parnell.
The New York Post quoted Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy who tweeted, “We are being led by total buffoons.” Dunleavy pointed out those 70 years of “peace and security” included the Yugoslavian civil wars of the 1990s, “as well as Russia’s attacks on Georgia & Ukraine.”
“Also, Berlin Wall only came down three decades ago so I’d quibble with 70 years,” he added before emphasizing in a second tweet that “it is not true there have been no wars in Europe for 70 years, nor do I consider the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe ‘peace & security.’”

The Guardian Removes Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America” Amidst Viral Resurfacing
The Guardian, a left-wing media outlet, has taken down Osama bin Laden’s notorious “Letter to America” from its website this week after the words of the deceased terrorist mastermind, responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001, gained traction on social media.
The letter, which had been published on The Guardian’s website since 2002, resurfaced online, causing a sudden spike in traffic. Social media users unearthed and shared the anti-American and antisemitic content, propelling the document to viral status. The Guardian, acknowledging the increased circulation without the full context, opted to remove the transcript.
According to reports from Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for The Guardian stated, “The transcript published on our website 20 years ago has been widely shared on social media without the full context. Therefore we have decided to take it down and direct readers to the news article that originally contextualized it instead.” The outlet declined to provide additional comments on the matter.
Osama bin Laden’s letter, translated into English, justified al-Qaeda’s attacks against the U.S. by citing American actions in Palestine. The deceased terrorist accused the U.S. of supporting the creation and continuation of Israel, labeling it one of the “greatest crimes” that must be erased. Bin Laden’s letter also propagated antisemitic tropes, claiming Jews control American policies, media, and the economy.
The 9/11 attacks, orchestrated by al-Qaeda, resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people and left thousands more injured. The letter’s resurgence occurred as it was shared by social media influencers on platforms like TikTok, with some expressing a change in perspective. Pro-Palestinian activist Lynette Adkins was among those who shared the letter online, prompting discussions and reflections.
The Guardian’s decision to remove the letter from its website underscores the sensitivity surrounding the content and its potential impact, particularly as young individuals across America engage with pro-Palestinian talking points. The episode has sparked debates about the influence of social media in reshaping perceptions and the responsibility of media outlets in disseminating controversial historical documents.
