“The war is not over, we could not save everyone”: retired colonel in Afghanistan

Retired Col. Jack Jacobs told CNBC President Joe Biden would not be able to keep his promise to end the war in Afghanistan and save all Americans and their allies across the country.

“The war isn’t over, we’re not going to be able to save everyone, and I’m afraid that if we’re not careful, if our allies aren’t careful, if the Taliban aren’t careful, we going to go to NBC. “To eliminate the terrorists who are out of everyone’s control and who will threaten us and our allies again in the future,” said Jacobs, military analyst for the News.

Biden highlighted plans to develop targets among ISIS-K during his remarks Thursday night, when a suicide bomber outside the city’s airport killed at least 113 people, including 13 U.S. servicemen.

“We will not forgive. We will not forget. We’ll find you and pay you, ”Biden told the White House Thursday.

Jacobs told “The News with Shepard Smith” that the war would not end because of the ongoing fighting between terrorist groups in the country.

“You’re going to have to keep fighting between the Taliban and all the different groups that are trying to drive out the Taliban,” said Jacobs, US Army Medal of Honor recipient and hero of the Vietnam War. “It’s going to last a long time.”

Jacobs told host Shepard Smith he spoke to people on the ground in Afghanistan who said Afghans felt they couldn’t get out of Kabul and were scrambling to find other ways .

“They are heading for the border, trying to cross Taliban border posts through Uzbekistan and other places,” Jacobs said. “I think, unfortunately, we’re still going to hear about a lot of inconvenience after we leave. “

The White House did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
