Original article. This is far more than unreal. We need lawyers to tell us how we hold this administration legally, perhaps personally, accountable for abandoning citizens and long time allies/co-workers in our military actions. Personally, I am not convinced this administration is even reporting accurate numbers of those we should be evacuating (perhaps we should involve other sources to confirm). For example, are/where there six or more planes, with evacuees waiting for clearance from the State Department at the airport? Since lives are at stake, we need verifiable facts, not political garbage! After sending this kind of message to the world, how will this country ever enlist help from other countries going forward?

What a weak, weak man.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday denied reports that the Taliban was preventing Americans from flying out of Afghanistan from the Mazar-e-Sharif airport. Blinken said the Americans and SIV migrants were not allowed to leave because they lacked valid travel documents.
The civilians at the Mazar-i-Sharif Airport are fleeing the country and fear for their lives.
Blinken wants valid travel documents!
The Biden Administration’s disregard for human life is appalling.
There are from six to ten private planes at the Mazar-i-Sharif airport ready to evacuate Americans and American allies from northern Afghanistan.
The Hill reported:
Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday said the U.S. is “not aware” of a “hostage-like situation” at Mazari-i-Sharif in Afghanistan after reports that the Taliban were not allowing Americans to leave.
“We are not aware of anyone being held on an aircraft or any hostage life situation in Mazar-i-Sharif,” Blinken said during a joint news conference with Qatar’s top diplomats and defense officials in Doha.
Blinken did, however, reveal that the U.S. has identified a “relatively small number” of Americans who are trying to depart from the airport. He also said the administration has been “assured” by the Taliban that American and Afghan citizens with valid travel documents will be allowed to exit.
“We’ve been able to identify a relatively small number of Americans who we believe are seeking to depart from Mazar-i-Sharif with their families. We have been assured, again, that all American citizens and Afghan citizens with valid travel documents will be allowed to leave,” Blinken said.
“And again, we intend to hold the Taliban to that,” he added.
Be thankful you’re are not stranded in a terrorist regime today with these clowns in charge.
Here is Blinken from earlier today.
