My god, like this Administration isn't a disaster already. The Cackler and Fiona Von Tentsuit at the helm; we are surely doomed....Yikes

This has to kept somewhere for posterity.

"I can't tell you with any certitude that there's actually been a list of names…There may have been," Biden said at his Thursday press conference. "But I know of no circumstance. It doesn't mean that it doesn't exist, that here's the names of 12 people, they're coming, let them through. It could very well have happened." (Joseph R. Biden Jr.)

It goes along with the line…”don’t assume I’m not corrupt.”

You got me thinking, going way back. 79-80 I was working the Contingency Rm piece of the Puzzle Palace Comm Ctr. 3 other comrades & I shared a rented house out in tumbleweed-infested Woodbridge. So we had hostages & international intrigue & back-channel TTY circuits from multiple "allies" being manually nursed along. But life was good, we could still smoke in there & the pneumatic tubes mostly worked. And TS SPECAT traffic with enough other warning notices on it that would choke a Clydesdale. I distinctly remember getting home one night, grabbing a beer & flopping down in a chair next to a buddy who was watching one of the all-night talking heads. And right there, I listened to traffic I had just secured in the safe, indiv copies numbered, yadayada. We just kinda looked at each other & he went to grab some more beer.

Shit hasn't changed in 50 years, probably more.
Just the delivery mechanism is new & improved.

His speeches are actually pretty easy to follow because he is the very essence of a low brow SITCOM from the 80's and 90's.
Just imagine imagine one of his recent speeches mildly re-framed in the context of a 20 or 30 year old SITCOM....

My fellow Americans, I'm not saying that there was a list - but he's checking it twice.
and uhm, you know, the thing...
we looked at ISIS and the Taliban, and we know who's naughty and who's nice.

Whatchoo' talkin' but Milley?

People want to get out and the roads are blocked.
-Making your way in Kabul today takes everything you've got
-Taking a break from all your worries Sure would help a lot
-Wouldn't you like to get away?
so we sent a list
or we didn't send a list
but maybe not
but who knows
who's to say
-folks in Kabul can finally go where everybody knows their name
-and the Taliban will be glad they came
-our troubles are all the same
-you just wanna be where everybody knows your name.

That's just the facts of life folks. Not everyone comes home after a war - You take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have the facts of life.

Its just the facts of life....


I'm Joe Biden, and I'm running for president !!

And who could forget these talks and this agreement with the administration in Feb 20, nothing secret since it’s on DOS website.
