August 30, 2021, is a date that should live in infamy in American history. It was the day that the last planes carrying Americans has left Afghanistan and ending what has been dubbed ‘America’s Longest War.’ It was the day that President Biden decided to leave Americans in Afghanistan. It was the day that “abandon Americans in need” officially became part of the Build Back Better platform.
President Biden said on August 19 that “If there’s American citizens left, we’re going to stay until we get them out.” Less than two weeks later, that turned out to be a lie. General Frank McKenzie admitted that not every American was able to leave Afghanistan. “We were not able to do that,” McKenzie said, according to a tweet by Lucas Tomlinson.
So far, there does not appear to be a definitive who were abandoned. McKenzie has stated that the number is “in the very low hundreds.” But, given that the deadline to withdrawal was still over a day away, every American should be asking: Why didn’t we get everyone out that we wanted to get out?
The U.S. has the most advanced military in the world. Under Biden, not only does our country cut and run, but we abandon Americans as well, despite having time to spare, and even though there would not have been any repercussions had we not adhered to the self-imposed deadline.
The Biden administration is a gutless disaster. On top of the border crisis that Biden created, the sudden, unexpected takeover of Kabul by the Taliban, and the most lethal ISIS attack on Americans in a decade, Biden has now abandoned Americans desperate to escape from an oppressive regime.
So Biden is now on record doing more to make sure illegal immigrants can come into the U.S. than to make sure Americans stranded in Afghanistan can come into the U.S. Let that sink in.
Biden lied to the world, to the military, and to the public. He turned his back on “very low hundreds” of Americans, and over 81 million people voted for him to do so.
