Joe Biden refused for the longest time to conduct rescue missions to help Americans who were stranded outside the Kabul airport after the Taliban took over Afghanistan. With thousands of Americans stuck in enemy territory, Biden slacked on evacuating the ones who had made it to the airport. The Taliban blocked the roads to the airport. There was a suicide bombing. Americans died. One might assume that thousands of Americans being in imminent danger might persuade the Biden Administration to get them out of there as fast as possible. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case and Biden plans to have our troops out of the country by the Taliban’s deadline of August 31 no matter what happens. White House Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki admits we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan if they are not out of there by August 31.
“After August 31st, for people still on the ground in Afghanistan who want to get out, does the US right now have a vision of a process that they will use to get them out after August 31st . What’s the commitment? Is it absolute? If you want to get out… Is the US guaranteeing you will be able to get out?” a reporter asked Psaki on Friday.
“I don’t think we can guarantee,” Psaki replied — a giant middle finger to Americans who counted on the Biden Administration to rescue them from a terrorist-controlled country. “But what we can do is work toward — and this is what the President directed the Secretary of State to continue diplomatic efforts with international partners to secure means for third-country nationals; Afghans with visas who may be eligible for our programs; of course, any American citizen, who remains in country, to leave the country even after the U.S. military presence ends. There’s a means of mechanisms for that. Those conversations are ongoing. That’s our objective.”
Psaki says the United States will coordinate with the Taliban to get Americans out after August 31, thus trusting the safety of our citizens to a terrorist organization.
