Well, it happened. Joe Biden said it wouldn’t happen, but it did. We officially pulled out of the Taliban-controlled country of Afghanistan and stranded hundreds of Americans there. But not to worry. The Pentagon says it’s no big deal. In fact, a Pentagon spokesman says that Americans “get stranded in countries all the time.”
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby tried to do damage control Tuesday following our hasty withdrawal — one Biden chose in order to comply with the Taliban’s demands. Unfortunately, he failed miserably at his job and just made himself, Biden, and America seem horrible. During an appearance on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Kirby said that we leave people stranded all the time.
“So what does that look like, how does diplomacy get those people out of the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan?” Kirby was asked.
“It’s not completely unlike the way we do it elsewhere around the world,” Kirby replied. “I mean, we have Americans that get stranded in countries all the time.”
But at least we are now admitting Americans are stranded. White House propaganda minister Jen Psaki previously said it was “irresponsible to say Americans are stranded.”
“They are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home,” Psaki previously said. “We are in touch with them via phone, via text, via e-mail, via any way that we can possibly reach Americans to get them home if they want to return home.”
Americans are trapped in a hostile, terrorist-controlled country with no way home. This is not good in any sense. This is not right. We must demand that Biden do something to rescue them. Sure, we can vote him out in 2024 — but they will all be dead by then. Watch Kirby make an ass of himself below:
