Hundreds of Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan, including more than 20 schoolchildren from California. But none of that matters to Joe Biden, who prematurely pulled troops from the Taliban-controlled country before everyone was safe and secure. Americans who are trapped there have been begging Biden to make good on his promise to save them from the hell in which they found themselves after our President* handed the country to a terrorist organization. Unfortunately, Joe Biden nor anyone in his administration have shown any interest in helping anyone. Recently, Americans trapped in Afghanistan called the state department — but they hung up the phone instead of helping.
The Intercept, a leftist publication that has traditionally been shockingly honest about Biden, recently published a report that details the Biden Administration’s lack of commitment to getting people out of the country safely. When Prince Wafa placed a call to the State Department in an attempt to coordinate the safe rescue of Americans who were trying to get out, the Biden State Department took zero interest:
The abrupt departure of American troops and closure of the Kabul airport left Wafa, who fears violent retribution for his work with the U.S., stuck hiding with his wife in Kabul and looking for a way out.
When Wafa called the State Department on August 29, the deadline for the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was still expected to be two days away. An official picked up Wafa’s call and gave him instructions on what to do.
Wafa was reassured by the confident tone of the U.S. official. “They told me that they would not leave any citizen in the country, they would get everyone out,” Wafa said. “They told me to take shelter and not go to the airport and to wait for further directions on what to do.” The official took down his information and told Wafa to wait for another call that would provide directions on how to safely exit the country with his wife.
Wafa waited for a nerve-wracking 24 hours, but no call came.
Wafa tried again after seeing Joe Biden on the news lying to Americans and claiming that American citizens, many of whom were still trapped in Afghanistan, were now free from danger. Wafa called again. The State Department hung up on him:
In a panic, Wafa called the same State Department number he had called earlier and told the official on the line that he was, like many other U.S. citizens and green card holders he knew, still stranded in Afghanistan. “I told them President Biden is saying on the news that everyone is out, but I’m still here,” Wafa said. “I have my passport in my hand right now, and no one has given me any way to get out.”
The State Department official listened and told Wafa to wait briefly while he checked what could be done. After a few moments, the official returned with a brief, terse message. “At this time, we have no other information to share with you on steps to take,” Wafa recalled the official saying. “We can only advise you to shelter in place for the time being.”
“Thank you for calling the U.S. Department of State,” the official added, hanging up before a stunned Wafa could even reply.
Americans are begging Biden to help them. But he refuses to do anything at all.
