Pentagon: Quit Asking About Americans Left In Afghanistan

The Pentagon really doesn’t want us asking about Americans left in Afghanistan. By 3:30 pm Eastern time tomorrow, there pullout of our troops and diplomats will be complete. That does NOT include Americans nor the Afghan SIV’s. They will be left behind to fend for themselves.

GOING DARK IN 30: If you’re reading this newsletter at 8 a.m. Washington time, it’s 4:30 p.m. In Kabul. Just under 30 hours until midnight Aug. 31 in Afghanistan. By this time tomorrow morning, there will be less than eight hours before the deadline, and the last of the U.S. troops in Afghanistan may already be gone.

Today, a steady stream U.S. C-17 cargo planes could be seen landing and taking off from the Kabul airport, but the numbers were smaller than in recent days. As of Sunday, there were several hundred American citizens waiting to be evacuated, and U.S. officials were working feverishly to get them out before tomorrow.

But please whatever you do, do NOT question our betters at the Pentagon! When asked about the exact number of Americans left behind, Pentagon spot John Kirby told the reporter to ask the folks at the State Department. Guess what? The LAST time the State Department held a briefing was on August 27th

We don’t know exact numbers, but by golly we used our plans to do all those fabulous evacuations in the last two weeks, so dammit, Please clap!

Meanwhile, for all those Americans and SIV’s left behind, if you are supposed to rely upon the State Department, I’m absolutely positive that this statement will inspire boatloads of confidence. Right?

An incredibly asinine tone-deaf statement! This is the SAME State Department who insists, like the Pentagon, that they had NO idea that the Taliban was going to take over the country so quickly. This is the same Pentagon and State Department who decided that closing a major military base and NOT starting mandatory evacuations of Americans at the same time was fabulous idea!

Joe Biden probably thought this Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, would be a great moment for his presidency. All American troops would be out of Afghanistan. Our country’s longest war would be over. And he’d be the guy who had the courage to end it.

Instead, we may well have hundreds if not thousands of Americans hiding across Afghanistan, terrified of the Taliban’s barbarism. Remember, the media only reports on Kabul, the Afghan capital, but there are Americans all over the country. And Afghanistan is a big place, full of mountainous areas where people are isolated and tough to reach.

Ten civilians were killed yesterday in a drone strike, but the Pentagon doesn’t want to answer questions about that either. Keep in mind, it’s absolutely right and proper that we asked where that intel came from, but again our betters in the Biden Administration don’t want those questions. 

Indeed. There’s a REASON the Afghan people are desperate to get out of their country. Why? Because THEY KNOW the Taliban is hand in hand with Al Quaeda and with ISIS. There’s no distinction between the three. NONE. And that refusal to face facts also led to the needless deaths of 13 American soldiers. 

But the Pentagon insists against all evidence to the contrary that they just had no idea the Ghani government would fail so quickly. Which is a complete and utter load of horse shit. 

Meanwhile, the Pentagon and the State Department need to answer for this. 

Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) is using his oversight authority to investigate allegations that U.S. military leaders prevented U.S. citizens and others from entering the Kabul airport as part of emergency evacuation efforts coordinated by nonprofit groups.

Johnson says he has been “receiving reports that contradict the Biden administration’s narrative and are troubling to say the least,” according to an information request obtained by the Washington Free Beacon that was sent on Friday to the Biden Pentagon and State Department. This includes reports that “a group of over 400 individuals including U.S. citizens were turned away at the airport” on Thursday and told by a U.S. military commander that the “rescue is over.”

For an Administration that is supposed to be SO AWESOME at foreign policy and International affairs, there’s a lot of things they don’t know about. 

This is a huge catastrophic failure by the Biden Administration. It’s very telling about how bad it really is when you have the State Department hiding from the media and the Pentagon keeps telling the world they know nothing about anything. 

What the Biden Administration has done, and NOT done, will have repercussions for decades across the world. Leaving an entire country to fed for itself with a terrorist driven government in charge. Fabulous foreign policy you’ve got there Joe! Just swell.

  • State and Defense are claiming to know nothing and evading questions for a simple tactical reason: Sources on the ground in Kabul and at the HKIA airport are providing near-real-time reports on the situation there. Thus, State and Defense can’t tell us their preferred self-protecting lies. Any lie they tell us would fall apart when challenged by evidence. The safest course, when you can’t face the truth and can’t lie credibly, is to keep silent.

      The U.S. State Dept. has been infested with communists since WW1 and Woodrow Wilson, they tried to steal the Russian elections for their comrades in the Russian Communist Party through non-profit n.g.o.s… just like at home in America… But Vladimir Putin defeated them, so they launched a fággot jihad against the Russian Orthodox church over the punk rock band and the Olympics (something Bítch Romney stupidly piled onto). Miss neo-kabbalah lésbian Madonna, now rumored to be a Muslim convert, was flown in to agitate while Hillary was on a world-wide gay pride tour.

      When the Iron Curtain fell down the Bolshevik Jéws all fled to the other side because they knew what the Russians would do to them after 100 years of communism. The best thing about Russia getting Crimea back… Catherine the Great took it from the Turks… What happened right after Russia retook Crimea? The Russian FSB searched all the Turks living there… Why? Because NATO sponsors Islamist terrorism when it suits them to…

      The Podesta Group was paying Hosni Mubarak about 1.3 million dollars a year, they also rigged the Egyptian election for the Muslim Brotherhood’s now deposed Mohammed Morsi… reactions to the subsequent crack down on non-profit n.g.o.s by both the Egyptian and Russian governments should have been enough to implicate the real election hackers… HINT: they weren’t Russian.

  • […]      Concerning the withdrawal itself, the most telling of all peripheral phenomena is the unwillingness of the Departments of State and Defense to admit to what’s happened and what’s currently going on. The extent of the disaster, the sheer number of stranded Americans, the immense wealth of weaponry abandoned, and the appalling unwillingness of our remaining forces at HKIA Airport to cooperate with private efforts to rescue the American civilians still there have left their spokesmen unable to speak. Hearken to Nina Bookout: […]

    Problem, If this was not planned then we got problems, If it was planned then we got bigger problems
    We now have over 80,000 Jihadist in the US

    Came expecting Pentagon spox quoted saying “Don’t ask about that”.

    Left disappointed.

    Clickbait headlines are shit no matter the ideology of the person posting them.

  • aelfheld says:

    Don’t know why the Dept. of Defense wouldn’t want to be reminded of yet another lost war.
