When Secretary of State Antony Blinken came to the podium on Friday to answer questions, it was clear he had no answers to give about who was left behind and who we evacuated in Afghanistan. The Biden State Department claims 124,000 people were evacuated from the Kabul airport. Shockingly, only 6-7 of that number, approximately 6 to 7 thousand are Americans. Media is now beginning to report that NO ONE KNOWS who the 118,000 other people are. What’s going on?
Bloomberg is reporting on the reality that we don’t know who many of those people are and that our government is “struggling” to find out:
What’s emerging, according to government officials and advocates, is that a small percentage of the Afghan citizens who got out are the ones the U.S. pledged to place at the top of its priority list: the thousands who had worked for the U.S. and its allies as well as employees of nongovernmental groups and media organizations.
Instead, initial findings suggest that while some who escaped were locally employed staff, many got out because they were part of the initial crush of people who made it to Kabul’s airport as the city fell to the Taliban or secured passage through airport gates thanks to luck or help from people in the U.S. or elsewhere.
Numerous Fox News reporters have confirmed that the feds have no clue who they evacuated. Stephen Miller has a grasp on what’s going on with the “refugees” from Afghanistan:
“Greatest bait and switch of all time” by Joe Biden…
Not only does government not know who they brought into America but they don’t know how many Americans are left in Afghanistan:
Antony Blinken doesn’t answer if Americans have gotten out since Biden abandoned them:
He did confirm that there are Americans still in Afghanistan who want to leave:
