The news out of Afghanistan continues to be a problem for Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby informed the media that dozens of family members of US troops are still stuck in Afghanistan.
When asked exactly how many were left behind, Kirby stated that he did NOT “have a whole number on that.”
Kirby, while discussing the abandoned families, stated, “We believe it’s certainly most likely in the dozens, but one of the reasons we put the memo out last week was to encourage service members to come forward.”
“We’re working this as hard as we can.”
He added that the Pentagon takes “the obligation seriously to our people and to their families.”
Well, John, I hate to disagree with you, but considering you evacuated about 70,000 people with zero ties to this country and left families of service members behind, I can’t really agree that you are taking this seriously.
I mean, how were these families not the first members aboard the first plane that left the country?
Once we knew we were leaving, why were they not evacuated before anyone else?
Kirby added, “That’s why we put the advisory out to the services last week, to give them a place, a portal where they can go to put information on there that we can then share with our State Department colleagues to get them out.
“We’re going to stay at this.”
That is just not good enough.
I even gave this story a day before reporting it myself to see if there would be widespread outrage in the media, but I have yet to see it.
This is simply unacceptable, and this administration must be held accountable.
I know Democrats will not do it, which makes it imperative that Republicans fully take Congress in 2022 to hold Biden and every failed member of this administration accountable for their crimes against our fellow Americans.
