JOE Biden pressured the former Afghan president to create a “perception” that the government could beat the Taliban, the shocking transcript of a call has revealed.
In the last call between Biden and Ashraf Ghani in July, both seemed to underestimate how quickly the Taliban could regain control of Afghanistan.
Much of the call focused on how Ghani could alter the public perception about Afghanistan’s military, according to a transcript reviewed by Reuters.
Here’s Joe Biden asking a foreign leader to lie for him in exchange for US support – to be clear, to lie to the world and the American people.

“I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said.
“And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
The US president told Ghani that Afghanistan’s prominent political figures should give a press conference backing a new military strategy in order to alter perception.
Biden’s advice to Ghani indicates that he did not anticipate that the Taliban would seize control in the country in the weeks following the July 23 call.
“We are going to continue to fight hard, diplomatically, politically, economically, to make sure your government not only survives but is sustained and grows,” Biden said.
