An anonymous Afghan interpreter blasted the Biden administration for betraying him and other Afghans like him. He made an appearance on CNN Tuesday, while protecting his identity for safety.

“To be honest with you, all the Afghans, including me and everybody, we are feeling that we were actually betrayed by the West,” the interpreter told host Jake Tapper. “Working with the U.S. and the West, we worked with them, we were betrayed by them.”

Meanwhile, the country is being invaded by the Taliban. “We are invaded by Pakistan and we are ignored by the United Nations,” the interpreter said. As a result, they point the finger at the U.S. government. “So we are blaming everybody. I do blame the Afghan government as well for not talking to the people, for not telling what was going on. But we are blaming the West a lot for what’s been going on in Afghanistan.”

The segment is CNN’s latest effort in criticizing the Biden administration over the fallout in Afghanistan. Earlier this week, CNN’s editor at large Chris Cilliizza wrote a scathing op ed on the president. According to him, “the situation was totally and completely out of control.” Then, the network featured a segment comparing President Biden’s previous predictions and promised compared to the current situation.

Political pundit Dinesh D’Souza tweeted out a link to the segment, calling it a “devastating takedown of Biden presidency.” However all the negative coverage doesn’t seem to sway Biden, who is reportedly currently on vacation. He briefly paused his trip to double down on his decision to withdraw in a press conference.
