Once President Biden started pulling people out of Afghanistan, everything started to change in the “Blink” of an eye (pun intended). Naturally, this has prompted Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to deny reports that the Taliban is preventing Americans from flying out of Afghanistan, holding them hostage at the Mazar-e-Sharif airport. Blinken noted that all of the Americans and the SIV migrants had not been allowed to leave because they did not have the valid travel documents.
Presently, the civilians at the Mazar-i-Sharif airport continue to flee the country because they are in fear for their lives. Afghanistan is no longer a Middle East nation that encourages Democracy, and this “new and improved” Taliban doesn’t seem to be any different, especially when you judge them by their current violent actions.
You had better give Blinken valid travel documents, because that is definitely what he wants!
This is all an indication that the Biden Administration has a blatant and appalling disregard for human life. Whenever you pull out of a war, you can’t just “pull out” willy-nilly. You have to be as organized as possible or human lives will be lost. That is exactly what happened under Biden’s watch and he only has himself to blame for it!
We presently have six to ten private planes on the runway at Mazar-i-Sharif that are just waiting to evacuate Americans and other American allies from this Afghanistan dystopia, but they can’t go anywhere because the pansies at the White House cannot get Taliban approval!
The Hill reported:
Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday said the U.S. is “not aware” of a “hostage-like situation” at Mazari-i-Sharif in Afghanistan after reports that the Taliban were not allowing Americans to leave.
“We are not aware of anyone being held on an aircraft or any hostage life situation in Mazar-i-Sharif,” Blinken said during a joint news conference with Qatar’s top diplomats and defense officials in Doha.
Blinken did, however, reveal that the U.S. has identified a “relatively small number” of Americans who are trying to depart from the airport. He also said the administration has been “assured” by the Taliban that American and Afghan citizens with valid travel documents will be allowed to exit.
“We’ve been able to identify a relatively small number of Americans who we believe are seeking to depart from Mazar-i-Sharif with their families. We have been assured, again, that all American citizens and Afghan citizens with valid travel documents will be allowed to leave,” Blinken said.
“And again, we intend to hold the Taliban to that,” he added.
Oh brother. If you think that it is bad living under President Biden and the rest of these clowns in America, it could be much, much worse. Thank goodness you are not stranded in a foreign country with these imbeciles in charge, that is for sure.
