It interviewed many officials and military officers, who said that the authorities ignored the handwriting on the wall. Another description is trying to get people in the embassy ready to evacuate, encountering people who basically deny the situation. Which ring is right for you?

BIDEN: Nope. That’s not what I was told.

HOLT: You have been informed that US government officials are prepared. Do they know it’s time to get out?

BIDEN: No, what I was told. No one told me that – look, there’s no good time to go out. If we didn’t get out, they conceded that we would have to put in a lot more troops. Not just 2000, 4000. We’re going to have to dramatically increase our numbers and we’ll be back in this war of attrition and and there’s no way we can unify Ukraine, I mean, sorry, Iraq- Afghanistan. There’s no way that would happen. And so this is a much wiser thing to do.

HOLT: I just wanted to clarify, are you refuting the conclusions or accounts contained in this military report?

BIDEN: That’s right.

HOLT: Are they not true?

BIDEN: I’m rejecting them.
