How could he let it get this bad?
During a recent interview with CNN, Biden’s White House communications director Kate Bedingfield was forced to admit that the Biden Administration still doesn’t know how many Americans are stranded in Afghanistan!
Bedingfield claimed that Biden doesn’t know the “precise number” because some have left in the last half year. She also claimed that “every American who wants to get out” will get out.
According to Breitbart, Bedingfield said, “You know, we don’t have a precise number, and there’s a reason for that. It’s because the number of people, of Americans, in Afghanistan, includes people who may have left the country, who may have left over the course of the last six months. So, what we’re doing is working to identify how many Americans are there. As of a few weeks ago, we had already begun reaching out to all American citizens who are in Afghanistan via email, via texts, via messaging app to hear from them and to understand their plans and work with them to get them out if they want to get out. And so, that is a massive logistical operation that’s underway.”
Imagine what the media would say if this happened under President Trump’s watch and he claimed he didn’t know how many Americans were stranded in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan?
Bedingfield continued, “The president has committed. We will get every American who wants to get out, out of Afghanistan. And we are working to move as many of our allies — who helped us, who stood by us, who helped our servicemen and women — get out as possible.”
While the Biden Administration continues to make promise after promise to the American people, they have showed us that they simply cannot follow through. Will all of these trapped Americans return home safely under Biden’s watch? No one truly knows.
In the meantime the U.K. has already put boots on the ground in Afghanistan and are extracting their citizens this very moment.
Biden just can’t get it right. Share your thoughts in the comments below…
