It’s common knowledge that Americans are not just stranded in Afghanistan, but that the Taliban have been beating them in the streets. But according to Biden Administration Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki, that’s not a problem — because Psaki denies Americans are “stranded” in Afghanistan at all in some weird attempt to defy reality.
Asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy whether the White House’s official stance is that there are no Americans stranded in Kabul, a fiery Psaki answered:
“I’m just calling you out for saying that we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan, when I – when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home,” Psaki said. “We are going to bring them home. And I think that’s important for the American public to hear and understand.”
The problem is that everyone, even the New York Times, has reported this. It’s not like we don’t know what’s going on over there. Rather than correct the record, a White House official emailed Fox News to back Psaki up: “As the president and his team have made clear, the circumstances in Afghanistan are heartbreaking and we are bringing the Americans who want to come home, home.”
Despite Biden and friends’ claims to the contrary, a mother and government worker told Fox that she and many others are indeed stranded. “We are stranded at home. We can’t get to the airport,” she said in a “Fox and Friends First” interview Tuesday. “When we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives.”
After pressure mounted, Biden eventually began rescue operations to rescue this woman and others like her — but such missions are cherry-picked by four-star generals and above — likely to avoid a “Black Hawk Down” scenario Biden fears will damage his reputation.
