    New reports that, contrary to earlier information, more that 300 Americans remain in Afghanistan.

    It is reported, as of January 11, 2022 that 80 Americans are unable to leave Afghanistan.
    Apparently they remain on Biden's I-don't-remember list.

    I sure will. There are also Americans abandoned in the states as well. Every life matters.

    Again, thanks Chuck for agreeing Biden abandoned Americans in Afghanistan.
    Please tell me about the Americans you refer to that he abandoned in the states as well.

    Black and brown and thank you for recognizing this yourself. Like you have said many times, your biggest concern is that trump will
    Be re-elected

    “The U.S. government will not be in a position to evacuate American citizens in such a contingency,” a senior State Department official told reporters in a briefing. “Russian military action anywhere in Ukraine will severely impact the U.S. embassy’s ability to provide consular assistance.”

    Report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Minority Report:

    Having wasted 115 days, the
    NSC did not conduct its first
    senior meeting to discuss the
    withdrawal until August 14 at
    3:30pm, just hours before Kabul
    fell, when evacuations became
    life or death for Americans,
    Afghans, and U.S. military
    personnel.


    * * *

    The Biden Administration’s
    senior leaders have argued the
    disaster in Afghanistan was
    inevitable and there was nothing
    anyone could do about it. These
    arguments are indeed true, but
    only because after squandering
    115 days, events would control
    them, not the other way around.


    * * *



    On August 17, 2021, and at the height of
    evacuation efforts, senior State Department
    officials leading the evacuation task force
    indicated there were 10,000 to 15,000
    Americans in Afghanistan, according to the
    F-77 report.12 By August 31, when the president
    ordered an end to evacuation operations, State
    and DoD had evacuated approximately 6,000
    American citizens. Even taking the most
    conservative estimates from the F-77 report,
    this meant the United States left at least a few
    thousand people behind.

    (emphasis added)
    https://www.foreign.senate.gov/imo/m...ort%202022.pdf


    Secretary of State Blinken claimed only 100-150 American citizens were left behind.
