First, I want to apologize to Joe Biden and his administration for saying they were inept, clueless, without a moral compass, unable to perform their duties, and biased against Americans in favor of illegals. I should not have said those things and I wouldn’t have, but I thought they already knew.
I certainly didn’t want to be the one to break the news to them. They came in thinking they were Superman, but they turned out to be Snuffy Smith.
Now, back to the subject at hand. There are six planes in Afghanistan ready to deliver Americans and people who were our allies who would be subject to death if they stay there. Joe Biden says he is without any way to facilitate their departure because we have no air power or ground troops to help them.
Leaders of the volunteers who rounded up the people for evacuation say it’s the State Department and not the Taliban that is holding up the flights.
Individuals on the ground say that the Taliban have not bothered them. One exception was Taliban soldiers who came to arrest a former government official, but they did not interfere with anyone else.
In a document sent to members of Congress over the weekend, the State Department says the flights have been cleared and it is now up to the Taliban to allow them to leave. But people on the ground claim they need the State Department to make one call and they can take off.
It is not clear what the call involves.
Newly released satellite images show six commercial airplanes at Mazar-i-Sharif airport in northern Afghanistan that are not being allowed to depart by the Taliban. American citizens and Afghan interpreters are reportedly waiting to board the flights. 📸: @Maxar pic.twitter.com/Ov7kB3z5VP

In response to questioning from TheBlaze on Monday, the State Department effectively threw its hands in the air and conceded there’s not much it can do at this point.
“We understand the concern that many people are feeling as they try to facilitate further charter and other passage out of Afghanistan. However, we do not have personnel on the ground, we do not have air assets in the country, we do not control the airspace — whether over Afghanistan or elsewhere in the region,” a State Department spokesman said.
