JOE Biden is “more dangerous to the West than the Taliban” and the worst ever president in American history, according to a decorated British army officer.
The president has received a barrage of criticism at home and abroad for his handling of the Afghanistan crisis, which saw American troops hastily evacuated.
American troops were first sent to Afghanistan following the September 11 attacks in 2001 but Trevor Coult, a retired Special Operations Staff Sgt, branded the two-decade conflict a “total waste”.
He told the Washington Examiner : “6,500 people died, including 3,000 deaths at the Twin Towers and we didn't achieve a single thing. He destroyed 20 years' work in less than 24 hours.”
Coult, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and survived three bomb explosions, branded Biden as the "most incompetent" president in the history of the US.
He said: "He has befriended terrorists. The White House is not a friend to the West. It's a danger while he is president.
"We believe Biden is more of a threat to the West than the Taliban ever was. Without a shadow of a doubt. He has betrayed us."
The Queen presented Coult with a military cross and George W Bush gave the former serviceman a presidential citation.

Biden defended his decision to end America's "longest war" by pulling all US troops out of Afghanistan by August 31.
Former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill said the officials in charge of the mission were a "disgrace".
And, many Republican lawmakers have called for Biden to be impeached or removed from office.
Marjorie Taylor Greene told an America First rally last month: “I believe in firing people when they are corrupt and do a bad job, and Joe Biden is failing America and needs to be impeached.”
Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said: “We call upon, most somberly, the resignation of this president, Joe Biden.”
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said his former friend had
He said Biden had committed a “dereliction of duty” in leaving “hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines.”
‘DERELICTION OF DUTY’
Rep. Lisa McClain was among politicians who blamed Biden for the deaths of the 13 American troops in Kabul.
The president was accused of having "blood on his hands" following the deadly blast.
Biden met with some of the victims’ families during a transfer ceremony in Delaware.
The mom of Marine Kareem Nikoui blamed the president for her son’s death.
She posted on Facebook: “13 heroes blood is on Biden’s hands (sic).”
She blasted Biden for trying to speak to her about his own son Beau, who served in Iraq before his death in 2015 from a brain tumor.
She claimed that her son would be alive if “Trump was in his rightful seat.”
Roice McCollum said she, her sister, and her father joined Rylee McCollum's pregnant wife Jiennah on the trip to the ceremony.
All apart from Jiennah didn't meet with Biden as they "held the president responsible for McCollum's death.”
‘BLOOD ON HIS HANDS’
Roice said Jiennah left the meeting "disappointed" as she claimed Biden brought up his son Beau in the conversation.
She told the Washington Post: “It struck the family as a scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple of minutes in 'total disregard to the loss of our Marine.’"
Former President Donald Trump slammed Biden for giving Taliban militants a "kill list' of people waiting to be evacuated from Afghanistan.
US officials reportedly gave militants the names of Americans, green card holders, and Afghan allies so they could gain access to Kabul airport.
Biden didn't deny that names may have been handed to the Taliban when probed by reporters at a press briefing last month.
Trump told Fox: "Now we're giving lists of Americans to the Taliban so now you just knock on the door and grab them and take them out.”
The Republican said America had been made to look like fools on the world stage.
Trump described the bombing as an "evil act" but said that it wouldn't have happened if he was still in the White House.
He said the Afghan crisis was the consequence of "the dumbest move ever perhaps made in US history" as he blasted Biden's strategy to withdraw troops before civilians.
The blast in Kabul was the US’ deadliest day in Afghanistan since 2011 when 30 Americans, including 22 Navy SEALs, were killed.
