U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday he accepted the Taliban’s repeated promises of safe passage for anyone seeking to flee the country.

He spoke after his meeting with Qatari officials on accelerating evacuations in his first trip since the establishment of the self-proclaimed Islamic Caliphate in Afghanistan.

Representatives of the terrorist organization told the United States “they will let people with travel documents freely depart,” Blinken informed a news conference in Doha where he and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met their Qatari opposite numbers.

“We will hold them to that,” he added, AFP reports.

Blincken belongs in the graduate student lounge. He is no wartime consigliere.

I thought Joe said he doesn’t trust the taliban.

He traveled all the way to Afghanistan for that? The Taliban Chief “promised” Blinken cooperation while having his fingers crossed behind his back.
It is nothing but a bad and very expensive joke.

Ann Coulter is now persona-non-grata here for valid reasons, but I loved something she had in one of her books (Treason, I think) where she said something like (can't remember the exact wording):

Back in 1938, Neville Chamberlain did not have himself as an example of appeasement to reference as something to be avoided. Today's Liberals have no such excuse.

I am sure our illustrious Secretary of State is patiently waiting for them to do so.

“We will hold them to that”

With what? Threat of retaliation? Witholding tribute cash? Not telling them where the keys are to the MRAPs?

The angry inch speaks. And the bearded tuff guys laugh.

Blinken: They all seem so sincere and, frankly, nice. One talked about taking care of his old mom and working his way through terrorist bomb school. In short, I trust them all.

I’m surprised he wasn’t waving a piece of paper declaring “peace in our time”.
