National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan looks like has been put through the wringer lately.
It was only about two weeks ago he was bragging that the Middle East was as quiet as it had been in two decades.
It turns out, that was just the quiet before the storm, and now Americans are missing because of his failures regarding National Security.
So far, at least 20 Americans are confirmed missing. They don't know if they are dead, captured by Hamas, or unaccounted for at this point.
Sullivan stated, "We believe that there are 20 or more American who at this point are missing. But I want to underscore and stress, that does not mean necessarily that there are 20 or more American hostages. Just that is the number who are currently unaccounted for.
"We will work hour by hour both to determine whether we can account for any of those Americans or to confirm exactly what the number of Americans who are being held hostage."
This is a significant problem for Joe Biden and this administration, as Biden simply cannot have more Americans dying under his watch.
Biden has taken a hard position against Hamas, but his actions in the past have many challenging if Biden truly stands behind Israel.
When you look at the fact they refuse to freeze the $6 billion that was recently released in the prisoner exchange, you can see why people are concerned.
Hamas has already threatened to kill its hostages, and if Americans are paraded around and assassinated on live TV, as Hamas has stated it would do, Biden will have pulled us directly into World War III.
Biden also has to deal with a contingent of Democrats who are openly supporting Palestine, demanding that a cease-fire be called immediately.
The man who ran on restoring global order has turned the entire world into chaos, with two allies at war and two more who are awaiting what now seems to be an imminent attack.
