Brian Williams Slapped with Unwelcome Afghanistan Truth Bomb By Army Vet
It was probably the most intense encounter Brian Williams has had since his helicopter in Iraq was NOT hit by an RPG. Following Joe Biden's speech on Monday about the disastrous exit from Afghanistan, Williams, as expected, rushed to praise Biden.
It was probably the most intense encounter Brian Williams has had since his helicopter in Iraq was NOT hit by an RPG. Following Joe Biden's speech on Monday about the disastrous exit from Afghanistan, Williams, as expected, rushed to praise Biden. However, when he turned to his guest, former CIA analyst and Afghanistan war vet Matt Zeller, he must have been shocked that far from concurring with Williams' narrative, he strongly denounced Biden's poorly planned exit from Afghanistan.
First Brian led off with "I am curious to hear your reaction of this consequential speech by the American president. Didn't run from it, he owned it. He owned his decision. He owned the fact that, as he put it, the buck stops with him."
And that led to the reaction from Zeller that Williams probably didn't expect, especially at a network such as MSNBC; complete disagreement. Zeller led off by taking on Williams' reference to how Biden "owned it" with this sharp retort, "I hope he gets to own their deaths too."
And from there it got even more brutal for Williams.
**********Exit Question: Will Brian Williams put in for a Purple Heart from being severely wounded during that interview?
Anyone who is of the opinion that Biden botched the departure from Afghanistan would not be proud that they voted for him. They may have voted for him but they would be ashamed of it now
I have to at least give MSNBC credit for not cutting off Matt Zeller and then claiming a spurious technical problem as the reason why.
