The utter idiocy! God help us if we ever need native allies again! 'Pray for the people. Only God can help them now. The US government will not.'
By Matthew ArchboldI’m not even saying it’s Biden. I don’t actually think he has much idea of what’s going on. At all. But the handing of a list of Afghani American allies is nothing short of evil. The strange part is that we don’t really know who is doing committing this callous evil? For America, that’s very strange.
This brings to mind the M.S. St. Louis off the coast of Miami in June 1939. As the more than 900 Jewish passengers looked longingly at the city lights they pleaded to land.
Those hopes would soon be dashed by immigration authorities, sending the ship back to Europe. And then, nearly a third of the passengers on the St. Louis were murdered.
This is similar. But this time it’s Americans who we’re abandoning to the murderous evil of the Taliban instead of the Nazis.
A potentially deadly blunder by President Joe Biden’s administration effectively handed the Taliban a “kill list” to target Afghans who aided the US, according to a report Thursday — and admitted it may have happened when asked later at a White House briefing.
Following the Taliban takeover of Kabul, US officials there gave the Islamic extremist group the names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies so they could be allowed to enter the Taliban-controlled perimeter around the Hamid Karzai International Airport, according to Politico.
The decision was reportedly made despite the Taliban’s notorious reputation for brutally executing Afghans who helped the US military and other Western forces during the war and occupation that followed the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
“Basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list,” a US defense official told Politico. “It’s just appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean.”
During a news conference about Thursday’s deadly terror attack at the Kabul airport, Biden acknowledged unspecified “occasions” on which the US military had contacted the Taliban to say, “for example, this bus is coming through with ‘X’ number of people on it, made up of the following people.”
“And to the best of my knowledge, in those cases, the bulk of that has occurred. They’ve been let through,” he said.
“But I can’t tell you with any certitude that there’s actually been a list of names. There may have been, but I know of no circumstance.”
Biden added: “That doesn’t mean it’s not — it didn’t exist. That, ‘Here’s the names of 12 people. They’re coming. Let them through.’ It could very well have happened.”
The shocking revelation came just days after it was revealed that Taliban death squads have been going “door-to-door” to hunt down suspected Afghan “collaborators,” with tens of thousands of American allies potentially at risk.
The White House’s major miscalculation surfaced during a classified, Capitol Hill briefing earlier this week, Politico said.”
Pray for the people. Only God can help them now. The US government will not.
