The Biden Administration Has Been Lying About Americans Trapped in Afghanistan – Opinion

Following the August chaos and death, there has been little news about Afghanistan. That’s largely by design as the Biden administration’s plan was always to flood the zone and hope that people found something else to focus on. In recent years, news coverage has been focused on the faltering economy and border crisis.

Yet, Americans were still trapped in Afghanistan by Joe Biden’s incompetent crew despite their promise to get them out. The exact number has been debated since the last C-17 took off from Kabul, and while all indications pointed to hundreds, possibly thousands left behind, the administration steadfastly insisted it was “around 100.”

This has been proven to be false.

To watch the ineptness with which Jen Psaki, Antony Blinken and others spoke about trapped Americans was always an eye-opener. But to learn they’ve actually been lying about the number in order to cover their own tails makes this even worse

The Biden administration is in touch with nearly 400 Americans who are stranded in Afghanistan, a figure that far exceeds the administration’s claims that about 100 Americans were left in the nation following the United States’ hurried exit from Kabul, according to a senior congressional source who was briefed Thursday by the State Department.

With Afghanistan in the administration’s rear-view mirror, U.S. officials are providing exact figures on the number of Americans who are still stranded and want to leave—although they are doing so in private, off-the-record forums—according to two senior congressional aides, who relayed the contents of the non-public call to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Ben Sasse responded to the news in direct fashion, adding another point of confirmation and calling the administration’s lie an attempted cover-up of the “morally indefensible” decision to leave Americans trapped behind enemy lines.

This new number is only for those who are in direct contact with the administration. Given how many Americans feel too scared to contact others, you can easily double or triple this number. What we do know is that the “around 100” number was always a total lie. The number “around 100” was not logical in any way. It was also a result the biased media allowed the White House almost two years to continue using such falsehoods. It was also notable that the major news broke that this entire story was a lie by a left-leaning outlet.

What will happen next? The short answer is most likely nothing. Biden cannot tie his shoes and the administration that he runs is run by far-left handlers. It is not in the president’s stomach to allow the Taliban to enter Afghanistan again, even though we pay them millions. It was impossible to return to Afghanistan after the decision to pull out without delivering everyone. This was compounded with a poor strategy for withdrawing that gave Bagram Air Base away to terrorists. Biden and his cohorts own this shameful disaster, and we shouldn’t let them forget it.
