During a CNN interview on Monday, former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ronald Neumann said that President Biden created a “disaster” in Afghanistan and that Biden was unaware he caused “an American defeat.”
“Is there any way to turn this around?” CNN host Jim Sciutto asked. “But beyond saving as many lives as possible, is the Afghan experiment dead? Is there any future to negotiations with the Taliban government?”
“Immediately? The answer, I think, is no,” Neumann said. “Now, there’s a, you know, there’s a whole generation that have come of age in 20 years, people that have bought to our values, a lot of them would like to leave but probably aren’t going to get out. The country has changed. It’s now going to go through a period in all probability of a lot of repression. Where the seeds sprout in those years might grow in the future, who knows?”
“But in the short term, this is a disaster,” Neumann continued. “I mean, this is an American defeat. The Taliban know it. Al Qaeda knows it. And all of our allies know it. I’m not sure President Biden knows it. But, you know, the British Parliament had a two-hour session condemning the United States, from one of our oldest and best allies.”

Neumann’s comments come the day after a CBS News/YouGov survey showed that 74 percent of respondents believe Biden’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan has gone ‘very badly’ or ‘somewhat badly.’
