New Report Reveals Biden Left and Abandoned 9,000 Americans in Afghanistan in Botched Withdrawal after Taliban Takeover

Remember when one of Biden's minions claimed that only 100-150 Americans were left behind when our troops surrendered withdrew from Afghanistan? Turns out that estimate was a bit off...

...by a factor of 60x !!!

According to no less a source than the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, they estimate that about 15,000 Americans were in Afghanistan when the withdrawal began, and only about 6000 of them were evacuated. Simple math concludes that around 9000 were left behind to be rounded up by the Taliban.

Probably using the American military equipment we also helpfully left behind.

I don't have an issue withdrawing from Afghanistan per se. We should have left at least 20 years ago. But there's a right way and a wrong way to do something like this. And the wrong way was to abandon all of our allies, and the US citizens who were living there, to the mercy of the enemy forces. Abandoning all that military hardware makes it all the worse.

Are they still there? It's nice how the 'media' is not covering anything important anymore. Not protests, not stranded Americans, not Biden's gaffes....

Many chose to stay. Unless you have EVIDENCE they are trapped there.

70% the people who are pissed about all the materials and allies left in Afghanistan, are the reason it took 5 years to get the operation moving in the first place. A lot of officials and "experts" who procrastinated far too long.

Yes. As we saw explicitly during the steal, they are in control.
Like mad politicians who never got elected for anything,
owning all of anything that matters...dictatorial powers unleashing
unquestionable propaganda while censoring speech, flipping votes.
Because they can. In your face demoralization. We own it all,
so it's time for everyone else to own nothing. Here. Have a VR set.

I remember the battles that Trump selected.
He was right. No wonder they screwed us.
They really hate him. Had this occurred under 45 he would have been
immediately impeached, and removed.

How long can this farrago of technofascism continue?
Do they think we believe anything they spout?
They are criminals with superpowers.

Whatever you need to tell yourself to feel better about it. If the number were far, far lower, your attempted point would carry more weight.

He left behind 3x more Americans than were killed on 9/11.

Let that sink in

Yes, and some of them probably killed themselves because they were having too much fun partying with the Taliban... Right?

Don't worry, we also have the China Olympics to distract us.
Pay no attention to Biden bringing thousands of Afghan males who want to marry young children.

Yeah, go ahead and excuse incompetence.

Looks real good on you.

Anyone with half a brain would be boycotting that # show to show China what's up.

That's the other part of it. He abandoned our allies to their likely deaths, but wasted no time shipping all the pedos over here. You know those guys are probably the heroin cartel who is the reason the Taliban gained a huge following in the first place. (The Taliban were/are the enemies of the narco cartels.)

That is disgusting.

It makes me sick.

And the Joint Chief and Sec. of Defense are also culpable.

Not to belabor your point here, but it does seem peculiar to me that 9,000 Americans chose to inhabit a region that is decidedly hostile. Seems like an informed gamble, no?

They did so with the assurances that they would be properly evacuated I am sure.

I would imagine most of them are Afghani-Americans, but in any case the pullout was by all estimates a complete cluster*bleep*. Pretty much the moment the pullout was announced the Taliban took over everything outside the capitol.
Anyone who lived outside of Kabul had little-to-no chance of getting evacuated.

I doubt anyone left there would have decided to stay there rather than go home

I thought they went against the normal order of withdrawal in order to meet the imposed deadline, so everyone turned around one day to discover the military leaving when the day previous they were all still on stand-by or something.

Pure speculation on my part but I would not be surprized if the Biden administration deliberately left those who may have favored the previous administration and their plans.
