The airport is not secure. The Taliban are not making it easy for Americans to get to or into the airport.
Do we need more evidence Biden is clueless and incompetent? Yes! Yes, we do.
The New York Post reported the Taliban have been confiscating Afghan-Americans’ U.S. passports outside of the Kabul airport:
“I got to the gates and was about to show my passport, but the Taliban got it, and he said you are not allowed to go through and wouldn’t give it back,” one Afghan-American, who served for several years as an interpreter during the war and has his home in the U.S but requested anonymity for safety reasons, said. “I was lucky a U.S. marine was right there and forced him to give it back.”
According to several others, some have not been so lucky — hamstringing their chance to make it home ahead of the Taliban’s officially assuming of the throne.
It’s not just passports:
“U.S. passports, driver’s licenses — they are confiscating those pieces of documentation from American citizens,” said Ephraim Mattos, a former Navy SEAL and founder of the humanitarian organization, Stronghold Rescue and Relief, which is working around the clock to evacuate Afghans interpreters and helpers. “They lose proof of who they are, and this has happened on multiple occasions in multiple places.”
We also know the Taliban have been beating Americans trying to reach the airport.
What did Biden say during his press briefing? Oh, yeah.
Joe Biden all but admitted the White House’s plan to get Americans out of Afghanistan hinges on trusting the Taliban. Bizarre.
