Joe Biden’s mental decline is putting America at grave risk.
The problems he’s creating can’t be ignored.
This chilling assessment revealed the security threat Joe Biden’s creating.
President Joe Biden’s first few months in office have been utterly disastrous.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday night that Biden himself was a national security threat.
Levin noted the disaster caused in Afghanistan by Biden and asked, “What has Joe Biden done to America’s national security?”
“To your point, first on Afghanistan, I hope that it’s just something that has an impact for decades, I hope it’s not centuries; it’s the most profound loss for the United States, certainly in our lifetime,” Ratcliffe said. “But one of my concerns there, and this goes to your larger question about what has Joe Biden done to our national security, he’s very currently harmed, but in so many respects beyond Afghanistan, but this most recent, most painful, colossal, epic failure in Afghanistan has literally breathed life into the radical Islamic terrorist movement, not just in Afghanistan, but around the world.”
Ratcliffe warned that the consequences on Biden’s actions would be felt long term.
“I wrote an article as the Director of National Intelligence saying that China was our number one national security threat; I did that as I was walking out the door based on the …. fact that, you know, I’m the person that saw more intelligence than anyone else in the country over the past year, and China very much is that existential threat to our country,” Ratcliffe continued. “But if I had to write that op-ed today, I would tell you that I think our greatest national security threat, at least in the short term, is Joe Biden, and our national security apparatus.”
“And the reason I say that, and I’m not trying to be glib or hyperbolic, but Mark, they have literally gotten everything wrong for eight straight months,” Ratcliffe explained. “With respect to China, with respect to Russia, with respect to Iran, with respect throughout the Middle East, now, including Afghanistan, it goes on and on, literally, they’re batting zero. They’re striking out at every turn. And it’s having a profound grave impact on our national security and our national security posture.”
Ratcliffe said that Biden is weakening America’s position internationally.
“I always look at what the intelligence, what I saw in that position, and one of the challenges here that we are facing for the next three years, is a president who’s not listening to the intelligence; our intelligence was crystal clear about what was going to happen in Afghanistan if we withdrew without conditions-based terms that we had negotiated and when Biden abandoned that plan; it went exactly to what we said was going to happen and that is unfortunately a trend that has continued where this administration and this national security apparatus keeps making bad decisions; keeps ignoring the actual intelligence that we have,” he added. “And honestly, nothing concerns me more right now.”
