Mr. President…Save me and my family.
13-years ago, an Afghan interpreter helped rescue then-Senator Joe Biden and two others when their helicopter was forced to land in a snowstorm, leaving them stranded in a remote Afghanistan valley.
Joe Biden, Chuck Hagel, and John Kerry owe a debt of gratitude to a man named Mohammed.
Thirty-six years old at the time, Mohammed came to their aid and saved their lives when two Black Hawk helicopters the senators were riding in were forced to land in Afghanistan in 2008.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Thirteen years ago, Afghan interpreter Mohammed helped rescue then-Sen. Joe Biden and two other senators stranded in a remote Afghanistan valley after their helicopter was forced to land in a snowstorm. Now, Mohammed is asking President Biden to save him.
“Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family,” Mohammed, who asked not to use his full name while in hiding, told The Wall Street Journal as the last Americans flew out of Kabul on Monday. “Don’t forget me here.”
Mohammed and his four children are hiding from the Taliban after his years-long attempt to get out of Afghanistan got tangled in the bureaucracy. They are among countless Afghan allies who were left behind when the U.S. ended its 20-year military campaign in Afghanistan on Monday.
Mohammed was a 36-year-old interpreter for the U.S. Army in 2008 when two U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopters made an emergency landing in Afghanistan during a blinding snowstorm. On board were three U.S. senators: Mr. Biden, the Delaware Democrat, John Kerry, (D., Mass.) and Chuck Hagel, (R., Neb.).

It seems unconscionable that he would have to even ask to be rescued. Someone who has risked so much and has aided America for so long should’ve been on one of the first flights out of the country. Now his entire family is at risk and he is forced to beg the man whose life he once saved to do the right thing and return the favor.
The administration keeps bragging about how many people they got out and saying they’ll continue to aid every American and ally trying to flee the Taliban.
The hard part is trying to keep from getting killed while the buffoons running America can formulate a rescue plan.

In remarks that may come as a surprise for those still stranded in Afghanistan, Jen Psaki says we are the world’s leaders in evacuating not only Americans but our allies.
No doubt our military has the ability to extricate those trapped in the Taliban hell-hole. The question is, does Biden have the desire to have them go back in, or are optics more important?
