Biden called on Fox’s Peter Doocy.

‘There had not been a U.S. service member killed in combat since February of 2020. You set a deadline, you pulled troops out, you sent troops back in, and now 12 marines are dead,’ he said, using the death toll that has since been updated to confirm an extra fatality.

‘You said the buck stops with you. Do you bear any responsibility for the way things have unfolded the last two weeks?’

Biden griped his notebook with both hands and was quick with his first answer.

‘I bear responsibility for fundamentally all that’s happened of late,’ he responded.

He then tried to blame it on Trump, saying Trump planned to be out by May 1 and that he delayed it.

‘You know – I wish one day you’d say these things. You know as well as I do that the former President made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all American forces out of Afghanistan by May 1. In return the was made – that was a year before.

‘In return for the commitment, the Taliban would continue to attack others but would not attack any American forces. Remember that? I’m being serious. I’m asking you a question,’ he said.

‘Is that accurate to the best of your knowledge, yes or no,’ said Biden, trying to get Doocy to commit to an answer about the

Doocy responded by saying, ‘Do you think the people have an issue with the way things have happened?’

Clearly frustrated, he put his head in his hands.

‘I think they have an issue that people are likely to get hurt. Some as we’ve seen have gotten killed, and that it is messy.

‘The reason why, whether my friend will acknowledge it or has reported it, the reason why there were no attacks on Americans as you said from the day I came into office was because a commitment was made by President Trump: I will be out by May 1.

‘In the meantime, you agree not to attack any Americans That was the deal. That’s why no American was attacked.’

Biden seemed content with his answer and braced for the follow up question. His eyes widened and his body tensed. His hands dropped to in front of his body.

‘So you squarely stand by your decision to pull out,’ Doocy asked.

The president dug his heels in and demonstratively said, ‘Yes, I do.’

Speaking to reporters at the White House Thursday evening, Press Secretary Jen Psaki reconfirmed President Biden has no plans to extend the August 31 departure deadline for U.S. troops in Afghanistan as thousands of Americans remain stranded behind enemy lines.

When asked about how the U.S. government plans to get Americans out after the deadline, Psaki said there will be coordination with the Taliban.

“Moments ago you said the commitment won’t end at the end of the month despite all of the Americans who remain. During his remarks moments ago the President said we were going to “try and get as many people out as we can.” Is he trying to prepare the American public for sort of a harsh reality that some Americans might still be left on the ground there when we leave?” a reporter asked.

“There are some Americans who may not have decided to leave until the 31st. That is possible. Many of these Americans who remain are dual citizens. They may have extended family members, 20 family members, 30 family members, other family member who they may want to bring with them and they aren’t ready to make that decision. Our commitment to them will not end. We will continue to work to get them out but his main objective and focus and laser focus which he asks for many updates a day on is getting every American who wants to leave out now in the next few days. That is what the U.S. military is working to deliver on,” Psaki said.
