"Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Former White House press secretary and Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer stated Friday that President Joe Biden’s “memory loss” led to his “biggest mistake,” calling out the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

A Taliban official said journalists were committing "a major sin" by taking pictures, Afghan media reported on Wednesday.

Television and pictures of living things were banned under the previous Taliban rule from 1996 to 2001, but a similar edict has so far not been imposed since authorities took back power in Afghanistan in 2021.

"Taking pictures is a major sin," Mohammad Hashem Shaheed Wror, a senior official in the justice ministry, told a seminar for department staff in the capital Kabul on Tuesday, according to footage broadcast by several media.

The reasons why the United States failed in Afghanistan and Iraq and is "in decline" today are its "ignorance and arrogance," the chairman of the defense committee of the Senate of Pakistan, Mushahid Hussain Sayed, told Sputnik.

President Joe Biden’s remarks regarding the disastrous and deadly pullout from Afghanistan a few months after he took office are likely to infuriate tens of millions of Americans.

A former Green Beret who saved hundreds of U.S. allies from Afghanistan following Biden's deadly withdrawal in 2021 unleashed a scathing rebuke of the president's nominee for U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, saying the promotion would be a 'slap in the face' to veterans. 

The Biden administration nominated Tracey Jacobson, 59, to be the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq last week. She has previously served as U.S. Ambassador on three occasions – to Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Kosovo.

Terrorists and factional killers are not born; they are formed. This lesson should have been indelibly engraved on the minds of every conscious person in view of what happened during the first two decades of the twenty-first century. A small group of actors murdered some 3,000 persons on U.S. soil. It was horrifying and repulsive. The U.S.

The US and Iraq will soon begin talks on the future of the US military presence in Iraq, as Baghdad has been calling for the withdrawal of the US-led coalition in response to US airstrikes in the country.

Sources told CNN that the US and Iraq would use a military commission they formed last summer as a vehicle for the talks and that part of the discussions would involve a potential timeline for a US withdrawal.
