Bold American leadership: Biden administration says U.S. will stick to Taliban's Aug. 31 deadline for evacuating Americans from Afghanistan

Aug 24th

In a stunning display of bravado sure to wow the world and maintain America's position as the global leader of freedom, the Biden administration has decided to basically do what the Taliban wants in Afghanistan:

"We believe that we have time between now and the 31st to get out any American who wants to get out," national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters Monday.

Any extension would have been likely be very brief and focused only on evacuating Americans, according to one official familiar with the matter, who said all contingencies were under discussion. The Taliban has made clear that "our leadership will take proper and necessary decision(s)" should the US stay past August 31, spokesman Sohail Shaheen said Monday.

"August 31 is deadline announced by them," the Taliban spokesman said. "US must adhere to removing troops from Afghanistan by this date. Otherwise, it will be a clear violation."

Various officials praised the Biden administration's bold stroke of leadership:

The Taliban better watch out: If they're not careful, the Biden administration might request a "very brief" extension of the deadline. Things could get pretty heated!
