He merely mentioned his unsuccessful pullout from Afghanistan briefly, and then complimented himself on the back by saying:

“Afghanistan has been free of conflict for 20 years.”

He went on to say:

“As we come to the end of this era of relentless conflict, we begin a new era of relentless diplomacy.”

Biden also claimed to have “revitalized” America’s alliances, despite the fact that France will not answer his phone calls and the United Kingdom has blasted his pullout from Afghanistan.

The speech has been dubbed a “embarrassment” by critics.

Biden spoke mostly about climate change and COVID-19, with only a passing mention of Afghanistan.

The Washington Examiner has more on the embarrassing content of Biden’s speech:

President Joe Biden implored world leaders to work together during his inaugural United Nations General Assembly address as his own recent diplomacy missteps diluted his message.

Biden’s speech marked an end to former President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy framing. Biden boasted about the reengagement of the United States with the World Health Organization and the Paris Climate Accord, telling delegates that “our own success is bound up in others succeeding as well.”

“To deliver for our own people, we must engage deeply with the rest of the world. Our security, prosperity, and our very freedom are interconnected as never before — and so we must work together as never before,” he said.

Biden cited the growing number of transnational problems, including the coronavirus pandemic and climate changes, that require international cooperation.

“Bombs and bullets cannot defend against COVID-19,” he said. “To fight this pandemic, we need a collective act of science and political will.”

“We will lead not just by the example of our power but, God willing, by the power of our example,” Biden said.

Along with the Iran nuclear deal and a two-state solution in the Middle East, Biden also referenced his botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The withdrawal angered allies, who contend they were not kept apprised of the president’s decisions.

“As we close this period of relentless war, we’re opening the new era of relentless diplomacy, using the power of our development aid to invest in new ways and lifting people up around the world,” Biden said. “U.S. military power must be our tool of last resort, not our first, and should not be used as an answer to every problem we see around the world.”
