House Foreign Affairs Committee member warns US is sending message of ‘weakness’ to adversaries
House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Rep. Michael McCaul warned that the US is engaging in “dangerous foreign policy,” and sending a message of “weakness” to allies and adversaries alike.
“My fear is that President Biden is projecting weakness, not strength, and that is very dangerous in the international community,” McCaul said, adding that the nation’s “standing in the world has been greatly diminished.”
“I worry we are sending the wrong message to our allies and adversaries of weakness, our allies are questioning whether they can trust us, and our enemies no longer fear us,” McCaul said. “That is dangerous foreign policy to be engaged in.”
McCaul said that the image of the Taliban flag being raised over the US embassy in Kabul will damage the United States’ interests abroad. “The winners here are the terrorists, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Russia, Iran, and China,” McCaul said.
