(Natural News) After the Taliban took over Afghanistan earlier last month faster than anyone in the White House or the Pentagon thought they could, the Biden regime sprang into action — sort of.
After getting most U.S. troops out along with a majority of American diplomats, it became obvious that in order to get the remainder of American citizens and our Afghan allies out it would require a new influx of troops on the ground and a massive airlift operation.
Mind you, these people should have been evacuated months ago, like, before Biden announced our complete pullout of the war-torn country in April. Even then there was time to begin evacuating Americans and Afghan allies while the U.S. still had a decent force left in the country and the confidence of the Afghan National Army.
But Biden the Decrepit didn’t order it. His Pentagon leaders may have insisted on it, but they were overruled, and not a single one resigned in protest, which tells us all we need to know about the caliber of “leaders” currently running our military.
Biden also didn’t push back on the Taliban-imposed deadline of 31 August when he had the forces in place and the leverage to do so.
What happened as a result was disastrous, of course, but also completely predictable.
As Americans fled, the Taliban launched long-planned offensives throughout the country, taking one provincial capital after another on their way to the country’s capital of Kabul, which they reached in a few short weeks as the Afghan military disintegrated and handed their U.S.-supplied weapons to the enemy.
That led Biden to order a new surge of 6,000 American troops to help facilitate the evacuation of all Americans and all U.S. allies from the country, which again, should have been done months ago. In the process, 13 U.S. military personnel including 11 Marines, two Army soldiers, and a Navy corpsman, were killed by a suicide bomber.
When the Aug. 31 deadline arrived and after being told for weeks by Biden and his administration flacks that no Americans would be left behind, hundreds and perhaps thousands were — a blatant act of treason that would have already led to impeachment proceedings if we had a functional Congress.
Now, private organizations are attempting to rescue those who were stranded by the Biden regime, but again, the administration is throwing up roadblocks, if you can believe that, according to Conservative Brief which has more details:
Private U.S. citizens who are desperately trying to get fellow Americans, as well as holders of SIVs and green cards, out of Afghanistan after they were left behind by President Joe Biden are frustrated and “horrified” at what they see as unreasonable and unexplained delays of their evacuation flights from the State Department, Fox News reported Sunday evening.
The delays that have been caused by the State Department are putting Americans’ lives needlessly in danger, according to three sources who spoke to the network.
Rick Clay, the head of PlanB, a private rescue organization, told Fox News the State Department is all that is preventing flights he has set up from leaving the country.
The network also confirmed through two additional sources that yes, the Biden State Department is holding up these flights when every day, every moment Americans remain trapped in Afghanistan, the chances of them getting out alive are reduced.
“This is zero place to be negotiating with American lives. Those are our people standing on the tarmac and all it takes is a f**king phone call,” one of the individuals, who has been heavily involved in the evacuation efforts, told Fox News.
“If one life is lost as a result of this, the blood is on the White House’s hands. The blood is on their hands,” the person continued. “It is not the Taliban that is holding this up – as much as it sickens me to say that – it is the United States government.”
