    Special Forces veteran Tim Kennedy explained on Tuesday how President Joe Biden's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan last August had telegraphed American weakness to the rest of the world - to both allies and enemies.

    Kennedy, also a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, joined Fox News' midday panel show "Outnumbered" to reflect on the disastrous exit from Afghanistan one year earlier - and he noted that the news broadcasts hadn't even come close to describing the horrors people were witnessing on the ground.

    Kayleigh McEnany opened the segment by noting that the widely-panned withdrawal from Afghanistan had been the start of a long slide for Biden's approval rating - and that Americans still had not forgotten the tragic images that came out of Kabul on those final days: people falling to their deaths after trying to cling to the outside of a plane, babies being handed over the fence to people inside the airport, and a suicide-bomb attack that left 13 dead American service members.

    "Thankfully American eyes never got to see the horrors that took place on the ground in Afghanistan," Kennedy began. "I mean, watching people fall from an aircraft is horrific ... I'm not understanding how - better that was than what was actually happening on the ground."

    Kennedy then pivoted to address Biden's claim that there would not be helicopters evacuating Americans from the roof of an embassy, arguing that what actually happened was so much worse than that would have been.

    "So trying to make a claim that this is not going to happen, you know, we're not going to have helicopters pulling people off the roof, it's just not true," he continued. "You know, there were burning bodies, there were dead babies hanging from concertina wire."

    Cohosts Kayleigh McEnany and Harris Faulkner both audibly gasped at the mention of dead babies.

    "The things of absolute nightmares were happening all around us, every single place that you looked," he said. "It's something that hurt us on the world stage, it's something that hurt us with our enemies and our allies. Everybody looked to us and realized how vulnerable we really are - you know, it's the first time that you saw Superman bleed - like the first time in a long time that we recognize how dangerous a position that America was, and Afghanistan amplified that."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
