One of the most awful aspects of the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster is that there are still hundreds, possibly thousands of Americans who are now stranded there.
The Biden administration didn’t handle getting them out ahead of time and now they are still there as the Taliban is taking control of the country.
Members of the Biden administration were asked about this on Tuesday and admitted that they have no plan.
They don’t even know the exact number of Americans there. How is this even possible?
Watch Biden’s press secretary fumble as she admits they can offer no guarantees that all Americans will be evacuated from the hostile takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban terrorists:

In a series of U.S. television interviews, Kirby said the U.S. military, including thousands of incoming troops, were squarely focused on airport operations and security.
“We remain committed to completing this drawdown in a safe and orderly way, and to doing what we can to getting as many of our American citizens out as well as many of those interpreters and translators” who assisted U.S. forces, Kirby told MSNBC.
“We’re going to work really hard in the coming weeks to get as many of them out of the country as we can.”
Kirby told CNN’s “New Day” program that between 5,000 and 10,000 U.S. citizens were believed to remain in the Kabul area, and that the United States could move between 5,000 and 9,000 people out of Kabul per day.
That’s not what CNN correspondent Clarissa Ward is leading us to believe:
CNN reporter says it’s “impossible” for Americans to travel through Taliban territory to get to the airport.

This is just unbelievable.
Things are looking rather grim for those left behind by the incompetent Biden regime:
