United States 'surrendered' to Taliban, says Nikki Haley

Nikki Haley urges the Biden administration to take back its decision

The Indian-American politician and former US envoy to the United Nations Nikki Haley that he US has “completely surrendered” to the Taliban insurgents and stranded its allies in Afghanistan, said on Sunday.

 

Nikki Haley profess that the United States has now surrendered the major NATO hub, Bagram Air Force Base, and has left USD 85 billion worth of equipment and weapons that should have been shipped out of Afghanistan.

 

Haley called it an 'unbelievable scenario' in an interview with CBS News.

 

The former US envoy told to CBS News, “They have surrendered the American people and actually withdrew our troops before they withdrew the American people."

 

Haley added, " They have abandoned our Afghan allies who kept people like my husband safe while they were overseas deploying. So, no, there was no negotiating."

 

She said that this was a complete and total surrender by US and an embarrassing failure.

 

Nikki Haley is seen as a 2024 presidential aspirant and has been a vocal critic of the matter and has come out to slam the Biden Administration's withdrawal policy from Afghanistan.

 

Haley said that Joe Biden led government have completely surrendered to the terrorist group's attacks and humiliated the United States in the eyes of the world.

 

She said, "The thing is, there are times where you have to negotiate with the devil, but you negotiate with the devil from a point of strength, you don't do it from a point of weakness."

 

She said that the country literally have no leverage right now with the Taliban.

 

She further added, "All we're going to see them do is, they're going to buy time and act like they're going to be nice until August 31, and then all of those women, all of those girls, everything is going to go back to the way it was."

 

Moreover, she calls it a 'serious' issue, and urges the Biden administration to take back its decision.

 

Haley also asked the Biden government to postpone the August 31 deadline that was given for the withdrawal of troops and asked for a more safer evacuation process.

 

While, the United States President Joe Biden had earlier said the US was committed to evacuated every American even if that means extending the deadline of the withdrawal.
