One stunning afternoon: Setbacks imperil Biden’s reset

WASHINGTON (AP) — In one stunning afternoon, President Joe Biden was dealt a series of setbacks. The challenges are examples of the the difficulty he’s faced trying to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Afghanistan and the need to be a more reliable partner to shaken allies.
