Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer railed against President Biden for his failure in Afghanistan. He appeared on the Sara Carter Show Tuesday to put the president on blast. Meanwhile, Sara Carter has been working to get people out of the country, operating in what is being called a “digital Dunkirk.”

“You know, I know how hard you’ve been working. You’re basically doing the government’s job,” Spicer told host Sara Carter. “God bless you for doing it.”

However, Spicer thinks that the Biden administration could be doing more. “But it’s ridiculous that this has fallen down to NGOs, VSOs, people like you,” he said. “I was in New England for the weekend, I spent more time preparing for the hurricane than I think this government spent preparing for withdrawing from Afghanistan.”

Meanwhile, the airport in Kabul is surrounded by Taliban. Americans report that they are stranded in their homes in the country. “I have sources that are telling me that by the end of the week, after or, or at which point all the Americans are out, then the Taliban is going to shut down any access” Spicer said. “They will shut down the internet, they will shut down the access of Afghans to be able to leave. And what do you think they’re going to do?”

As a result, in Spicer’s opinion, the United States will also suffer consequences. “The short term, you’re seeing the consequences of the lack of planning the lack of thought. But the long term is also we’re giving up a strategic foothold in a key area.”

VP Kamala Harris publicly mourns Palestinians killed in hostage rescue operation

Vice President Kamala Harris mourned the Palestinians in Gaza who were killed in the successful Israeli hostage rescue operation this weekend during an address delivered over the weekend.

Israeli forces say Hamas intentionally kept the hostages in a “civilian environment.” They also said even the Palestinians who were holding the hostages were also “civilians.”

Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari of the IDF said Hamas has been holding hostages inside civilian buildings, including the locations where Israeli forces rescued Noa Argamani, 26, Almog Meir Jan, 22, Shlomi Ziv, 41, and Andrey Kozlov, 27.

“Before I begin, I just say a few words about the morning which I know weighs heavily on all of our hearts,” she said.

“On Oct. 7, Hamas committed a brutal massacre of 1,200 innocent people and abducted 250 hostages,” she continued. “Thankfully, four of those hostages were reunited with their families tonight. And we mourn all of the innocent lives that have been lost in Gaza, including those tragically killed today.”

The Israeli operation retrieved four hostages who were taken into Gaza by Hamas on Oct. 7. Harris, speaking before the Michigan Democratic Party, celebrated their retrieval but spent more time lamenting the deaths of Palestinians killed in the operation, many of whom Israel has described as terrorists.

“We have been working every day to bring an end to this conflict in a way that ensures Israel is secure, brings home all hostages, ends ongoing suffering for Palestinian people and ensures that Palestinians can enjoy their right to self-determination, dignity and freedom,” Harris added. “As President Biden said last week, it is time for this war to end.”

Fox News reports that Hamas-run authorities in Gaza claim over 270 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli operation, though they make no distinction between militants and innocents. Israeli forces claim the number was fewer than 100.

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan also confirmed reports on Sunday that some number of innocents appeared to have been killed in the operation.

“We the United States are not in a position today to make a definitive statement about [the death toll],” Sullivan said in a Sunday interview with CNN. “But we do know this: innocent people were tragically killed in this operation. The exact number we don’t know, but innocent people were killed.”

“Every day that we see more innocent people lost is another horrible, awful, tragic day,” he added.
