CNN chyron: “AFGHANISTAN’S RAPID UNRAVELING THREATENS BIDEN LEGACY”
— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) August 13, 2021
The chyron appeared during a report on At This Hour With Kate Bolduan as CNN national correspondent Kylie Atwood said that “the pace at which the security situation is deteriorating in Afghanistan has taken U.S. officials by surprise.”
“And I think it’s important to note that, as this unfolds, this is a situation that threatens to permanently strain President [Joe] Biden’s foreign policy legacy. He has repeatedly said that the U.S. is going to leave Afghanistan,” she said. “He knows that Americans are with him in that.”
“But the U.S. State Department has also said they are engaged in talks with the Taliban,” continued Atwood. “Those talks have, however, gone nowhere. And the situation that the Biden administration is facing right now is alarming.”
Additionally, Atwood said that the White House doesn’t “see grand political implications for the president and his efforts to double down on his decision to get U.S. troops out of Afghanistan” as “the American people are largely with him in this.”
