Laura Ingraham called on Congress to open a probe into what she is calling “Joe’s secret Taliban deal” after CIA Director William Burns went to Kabul to meet with the Taliban.
Laura said: “This raises lots of questions. First, why send the CIA director and not a State Department official? What were the parameters of the talks? Did the CIA director push to get the August 31 deadline extended?
“Did he ask if any Americans were being held against their will or demand their release and safe passage? If so, what did we give up for that guarantee? What was going on that none of Biden’s top Cabinet officials were with him at this pivotal time? Just extended alone time with Jill? Very odd,

Ingraham ripped Biden calling him, “weak, feckless and inept.”

“Raise your hand if you trust the people behind the border crisis and Afghanistan debacle to properly vet each and every one of these people.
“The fact is we’ve already seen potential bad actors nearly slip through the system.
“The Democrats cannot be allowed to take a crisis of their own making, and use that crisis to change or flout US refugee policy. ]
“They’ve already tried that on the border – because they turned the border into a magnet and women and babies are showing up there, we now have to let them in even if doing so is contrary to US law,” she
