FoxNews.com reports that
White House press secretary Jen Psaki grew visibly annoyed during the press briefing Monday when she was asked whether President Biden was aware that most of the criticism against the Afghanistan withdrawal was about Americans being “stranded” in Kabul.
“Does the president have a sense that most of the criticism is not of leaving Afghanistan? It’s the way that he has ordered it to happen by pulling the troops before getting these Americans who are now stranded. Does he have a sense of that?” Fox News’ White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked.
Psaki said it was “irresponsible” to say that Americans are stranded in Afghanistan. “I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home.”
Doocy followed up and asked whether “there are no Americans stranded” is the official White House position.
“I’m just calling you out for saying we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan 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.”
Doocy later asked Psaki whether Americans being beaten up by the Taliban and Afghans passing babies over barbed-wire fences was what Biden meant when he said, “America is back.”
“What the president meant is that we are going to continue to lead in the world including being the leaders in evacuating not just our Afghan partners, not just American citizens, but also our allies,” Psaki replied.
Fox News had reached out to Psaki on Saturday about an American woman who described being trapped from reaching the Kabul airport. The White House never issued a response.
“I really have given up hope, given up on the hope of going to the airport,” the woman, whose identity is being withheld due to concerns for her safety, told Fox News. “It’s just not possible to make it through all those people.”
She said there are as many as 20 Taliban checkpoints between her and the airport – and she’s one of an uncertain number of American citizens trapped behind enemy lines.
She was whipped by Taliban fighters on one attempt to get through, she said. A man standing near her was shot in the head on another try, leaving his wife and baby in tears. Since then, she’s been in hiding.
I haven’t seen an Administration as full of incompetent liars as this one is….since the Obama Administration.
They continue to dig a hole which they have dug deeper with every lie that they tell.
The entire world is laughing at Biden and those who work in his Administration.
Just as Doc Holliday’s (Val Kilmer) hypocrisy knew no bounds in the movie “Tombstone”, the Biden Administration’s incompetence knows no bounds in attempting to deal with the Crisis in Afghanistan.
Yes, there are Americans stranded there who cannot get to the Kabul Airport because it is surrounded by the Taliban, who are also going door-to-door, seeking Americans and our Afghan Allies.
If was Biden’s own arrogance, magnified by his dementia, that brought about the Afghanistan Crisis and, if a miracle does not happen, a hostage crisis which will make Iran dwarf in comparison.
Until he sends our military to the Americans who are “in country” to escort them safely to the airport, they will never make it, regardless of Biden’s naïve “agreements” he may have made with the Radical Islamic Barbarians.
The only thing that the Taliban understands is a leader with steely resolve, backed up by the will to use military force, if necessary.
Biden acts like he is scared of the Taliban.
Trump was not.
Biden’s botching of this situation has not only endangered Americans in Afghanistan, it has endangered everyone living in America, as well.
The rest of our enemies, like Putin, and Xi, have seen how weak Biden is, and had better believe that they are watching and waiting to see how they can take advantage of incompetence.
American has never been more vulnerable than we are now.
May God protect us.
