Anthony Blinken went on to Face the Nation claiming he isn’t giving the Taliban credibility and then proved he was giving them credibility. He admitted he is getting Taliban permission to evacuate American citizens from Afghanistan. Then he lied about the situation at the airport. He either lied or he’s delusional. Either is possible.
He’s an absolute idiot, but he speaks well.
