Peter Doocy asked her “Why haven’t we heard the President say ‘the United States does not negotiate with terrorists?’ Is that still the US policy?”
“Well of course it is, Peter,” she began to reply. “But, I would also say that there’s a reality that the Taliban is currently controlling large swaths of Afghanistan. That is the reality on the ground, and right now our focus and our priority is getting American citizens evacuated and our Afghan partners evacuated.”
She then said the administration has “make a great deal of progress doing exactly that,” effectively taking credit for starting to clean up a mess that should’ve never existed in the first place.
Doocy’s question was motivated by Joe Biden’s recent admission that the success of his administration’s withdrawal plan is contingent on the Taliban’s cooperation.
And if history is any guide, they’re not exactly a trustworthy bunch.
