I have heard many outrageous comments from the Biden Administration, but the refusal of SoD Lloyd Austin is downright treasonous. The number one job of any president is to protect the citizens of the United States, but now what we hear from the Biden caliphate is that we may leave many Americans behind in Afghanistan.
In the past, we have never left anyone behind, but now we are in the Biden era and the rules have changed.
Austin told ABC’s, Martha Raddatz:
“We’re going to continue to assess the situation and work as hard as we can to get as many people out as possible. As we approach that deadline, we’ll make a recommendation to the president.”
[Austin added that the Taliban] “has been allowing people to pass safely through” to the airport, if you have an American passport if you have the right credentials.”
But, Austin must know that the Taliban has been confiscating driver’s licenses and passports. Does that mean they will not allow them to return to the United States? And why can’t he commit to rescuing all Americans from Afghanistan.
At the risk of being cynical, I have often found the reason people won’t commit themselves is because they do not intend to actually do it. If that is the case,m this country will have a stain that cannot be washed away.
Raddatz shot back:
“There’s no such thing as an absolute in this kind of environment as you would imagine Martha. There have been incidents of people, you know, having some tough encounters with the Taliban. As we learn about those incidents, we certainly go back and engage the Taliban leadership and press home to them that our expectation is that they allow our people with the appropriate credentials to get through the checkpoints.”
Austin said on Wednesday that the U.S. does not have the military capability to retrieve Americans who can not gain entry to Hamid Karzai International Airport. France, Britain, and Germany have all dispatched troops to bring their citizens and some Afghans to the airport.

Biden promised ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos during a Wednesday interview that “we’re going to stay until we get… all [American citizens] out,” even if that meant extending his withdrawal deadline.
