When Joe Biden pulled troops out of Afghanistan and officially ended any and all rescue operations that should have continued helping Americans escape the Taliban-controlled country, he stranded hundreds of Americans and others behind enemy lines. Now, an interpreter who saved Biden’s life in 2008 is stranded in Afghanistan and is forced to go into hiding to prevent capture by the Taliban.
Mohammad, whose last name has not been revealed, reached out to the Wall Street Journal to get a message to Biden — HELP!
“Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family,” he said. “Don’t forget me here.” Mohammad and his family are now forced to hide from the Taliban because Biden left them there. The New York Post details Mohammad’s heroism:
In 2008, Mohammed was a 36-year-old interpreter working with the US Army when two US Army Black Hawk Helicopters carrying Biden, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), and Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), were forced to land in the mountains due to a snowstorm.
After landing, the crew requested assistance and Mohammed responded with a Quick Reaction Force from the 82nd Airborne Division, driving hours to rescue the senators. According to soldiers, Mohammed was a part of over 100 firefights in the valley.
In June, Lt. Col. Andrew R. Till gave support for the interpreter’s application for a Special Immigrant Visa after it became stuck due to a defense contractor losing the necessary records.
“His selfless service to our military men and women is just the kind of service I wish more Americans displayed,” Till wrote.
Shawn O’Brien, an Army veteran who worked with Mohammed in 2008, has also called on US officials to help Mohammed leave the country.
“If you can only help one Afghan, choose [Mohammed],” O’Brien said, per the Journal.
The interpreter and his family reportedly attempted to evacuate by going to the Kabul airport gates, where he was told by US troops that he could get in, but not his family.
Obviously, he chose not to abandon his family. “I can’t leave my house,” Mohammad says. “I’m very scared.”
Before Biden abandoned Americans and others in Afghanistan, the U.S. military rescued 79,000 people — and only 6,000 (a tiny percentage) were Americans. While Biden frequently references the time Mohammad rescued him in speeches, the interpreter and his family were not among those rescued.
This is despicable. It’s time for Biden to resign or be removed from office. America cannot survive if he continues to occupy the Oval Office.
