According to the White House, President Biden will emerge from hiding at 3:45 p.m. this afternoon to deliver remarks about Afghanistan falling to the Taliban.
In addition to the several thousand U.S. troops currently in Afghanistan assisting with evacuations and keeping the Kabul airport secure, Biden has reportedly ordered another thousand into the country:
BREAKING: President Biden orders another 1,000 paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne to Kabul. 7,000 U.S. troops will be on the ground in Afghanistan soon.

It’s looking like the Biden White House is making this up as they go.
Ended up deploying 7,000 U.S. troops to respond to the politically expedient withdrawal of 1,500 U.S. troops.
Who exactly is in charge of this administration's foreign policy agenda? https://t.co/zQxCPBBdoV
