President Biden falsely claimed that the U.S. doesn’t have military deployed to Syria during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Wednesday night, his first TV interview since the Taliban’s rapid takeover of Afghanistan. Biden defended himself against fierce criticism for his withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and the country’s subsequent fall to the Taliban this month. He pointed to Syria and East Africa as areas where Islamic terrorists pose a greater threat to Americans than Afghanistan, and yet the U.S. does not have a sizable military presence in those areas.
