Send Me – Afghanistan Withdrawal Documentary
Send Me – Afghanistan Withdrawal Documentary
“Never Underestimate Joe’s Ability to F*ck Things Up” – Barack Obama
“Biden has been wrong on every major foreign policy decision in last 4 decades” – Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; SEND ME – Isaiah 6:8 KJV
The documentary “Send Me” is the story of the men and woman who put their skills to use to save American citizens, Green Card holders and those with Special Immigrant Visas, that our Federal government left behind in its hurry to turn Afghanistan back over to the Taliban. It is a grueling and gripping documentary. I watched the version on FreeTVee that included commercials because I needed the breaks to process what I was seeing and hearing. If you have read Tim Kennedy’s autobiography “Scars and Stripes”, you know his side of the story. The documentary includes interviews with most of the other team members.
Most Americans, especially those who have worn our uniforms, were horrified by the callous disregard for life that was displayed in our Afghan withdrawal. Many of our skilled warriors were looking for ways to assist those left behind. This part is told in both Scars and Stripes and Send Me. Tim Kennedy and Nick Palmisciano, retired Army, are almost finished writing Scars and Stripes, when they get a call from Chad Robichaux, retired Recon Marine. Robichaux needs to get his former interpreter Asiz. Quickly, the men got messages of others who needed to be rescued before they were found by the Taliban.
The men got in touch with Sarah Verardo and Save Our Allies was formed. Mrs. Verardo is the wife and caregiver for her husband, a severely injured member of the 82nd Airborne. She is an advocate for our war wounded and a tireless fundraiser. Because of her work, she has contacts. Lots of contacts. Senator Thom Tillis of NC and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Mark Milley got the guys’ manifests approved. Yes, I was shocked, too. In total there are 13 involved. The United Emirates provided epic support, planes, safe spaces, you name it.
Here is the trailer for Send Me:
Some twat Colonel from the 82nd Airborne stopped five buses of cleared refugees at Black Gate from getting safely away. Here is this story from the New York Post:
A US Army colonel turned away busloads of Americans, allies and orphans trying to flee Afghanistan during the chaotic evacuation of war-torn country last August, a new documentary claims.
The unidentified colonel was accused of “murdering” the passengers by witnesses who said he blocked passengers of five buses from getting on planes that could have flew them out of Kabul.
Members of a high-level special operations volunteer team made the shocking claim in the new documentary “Send Me.”
The refugees all had verified documents and had been searched by Marines when they arrived at the airport’s secret US military-controlled Black Gate on Aug. 25, 2021 around 3 a.m., team members said.
The colonel could not be pleaded with, and would not even make an exception for people with US passports because he didn’t know “if that’s fake or not,” the anonymous team member recalled.
He then ordered the refugees back into the bus and off the base at gunpoint, where they would pass through a vengeful Taliban security force.
“This decision to turn this bus around essentially just killed, just murdered these people,” former Marine Chad Robichaux said.
“And by the way some of these people are children, some of these people are women, some of these people are Americans that we just sent back to the Taliban.”
While the special operators went out and got more of those Joe left behind, Sarah Verardo compiled more lists, worked with State and Defense to get paperwork processed, and the UAE sent more planes. It is unbelievable how much the people from Save Our Allies got done.
There are so many horrific stories in this documentary. Our deployed personnel were not allowed to go outside the wire, which necessitated the retired special operators volunteering for this work. The Taliban manned the gates of the airport. When the crowd would get too rowdy, the Taliban would just empty a magazine into the crowd. The Taliban shot a woman in the head, just to show they could. And, finally, the suicide bomber. The bomber had been seen numerous times and several Marines asked for permission to shoot. The lawyers said no. Our personnel weren’t allowed outside the wire to minimize the chance of loss of life and Joe Biden let the bomber walk through the Abbey Gate and murder 13 personnel with many more grievously injured. Those are laid directly at Joe Biden’s door.
Marine S. Sgt. Taylor Hoover killed in Afghanistan last year 🇺🇲😢🙏… this is his father speaking about what happened and the terrible withdrawal by the Biden Administration. This marine should be alive today. Period. We will never forget. 🇺🇲 : @FoxNews #TaylorHoover pic.twitter.com/AFiWSOczf3

Not one of those Generals threw their rank on the desk. They are complicit.
Remember those glorious photos of Marines holding babies thrown over the wall. Those were the babies who made it over the wire. Many landed in the concertina wire and bled out.
Watch Send Me. Then, every time Joe Biden brags out successfully get out 100,000 people REMEMBER. Never underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up. Fortunately, this time there were men and women who said SEND ME.
