Coordinated White House/Media Allies Line: Any Americans Left Behind Choose to Be Left Behind, And Whatever Happens To Them, It's Their Fault

"Don't underestimate Joe's ability to fvck things up."


-- Barack Obama, who should know a thing or two about f***ing things up.

The White House's spokespig Jen Psaki has all but admitted that they're planning on leaving some Americans behind.

"Our commitment continues to be to U.S. citizens: If they want to leave, we will help get them out," Psaki responded.

When asked if that means the administration will act beyond the Aug. 31 deadline, Psaki admitted the White House believes some Americans will be stranded.

"Again, we expect there could be some, but I don't -- I'm not going to get into it further," she said.

Note how she puts that -- "if they want to leave."

The two Congressmen who traveled to Kabul -- one Democrat, one Republican -- are agreed that there is no way to get all Americans out of Afghanistan by August 31 -- or even by September 11.

"We came into this visit wanting, like most veterans, to push the president to extend the August 31st deadline. After talking with commanders on the ground and seeing the situation here, it is obvious that because we started the evacuation so late, that no matter what we do, we won't get everyone out on time, even by September 11," Moulton explained. "Sadly and frustratingly, getting our people out depends on maintaining the current, bizarre relationship with the Taliban."

And the odds of getting those Americans out fell even further when the State Department -- having realized that there was a "security threat" at the airport, which we indeed saw come to bloody fruition today -- told Americans to stay away from the airport.

How are they going to get airlifted out of the airport if they're not at the airport?

Several European nations announced on Thursday that they were halting their evacuations from the Kabul airport after reports a day earlier of a security threat at the airport, as the window for airlifts appeared to be closing, days before the deadline for the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark all said that they would no longer be able to facilitate airlifts from the Hamid Karzai International Airport, which has both civilian and military sections. The airport has been the site of chaotic scenes since the Taliban takeover of the capital earlier this month, as tens of thousands of Afghans and foreign citizens had desperately searched for a way out.

The U.S. Embassy had warned Americans on Wednesday to stay away from the airport and told anyone outside the perimeter to "leave immediately," citing unnamed security threats.

Kinda wish we had the fortified, far-from-population-centers Bagram air base still open, huh?

So the situation is this: Of the 1500 or more Americans in Afghanistan, we will certainly wind up leaving behind hostages and future beheading victims.

Many citizens of allied European nations will be left behind.

Possibly the six California high school students and their parents, who picked a bad time to trust the competency of Joe Biden and his Foreign Policy Dream Team, might not get out of Afghanistan.

And as for the 250,000 (or more) "Afghan allies" we keep hearing about...? Forget it, they'll almost all be left behind to be executed.

Which is why the Biden Administration and its media allies need to create a Narrative for the coming slaughter: any Americans who are left behind wanted to be left behind, so it's their own fault, not Biden's.


[T]he worst-case scenario is that we're seeing preemptive spin for when the Biden administration chooses to leave Americans in Afghanistan after August 31. Based on the administrationís gaslighting -- Politico's words, not just mine! -- it seems that the Biden team, having found themselves in a situation with no good options and terrified of a bigger fight with the Taliban, is prepared to claim, "we evacuated every American who wanted to get out, the ones who didnít come to the airport by August 31 clearly wanted to stay."

Speaking of setting up a Narrative -- that's from National Review, which is apparently now shifting to pretend they didn't propagandize for Biden, and didn't vote for Biden themselves.

In a grim update, four US Marines are now reported dead from the bombing.

Jen Rubin gives no F's, though. She continues spinning for Biden, and also pushing the idea that maybe those left behind just plain wanted to be murdered horribly by terrorists:

@JRubinBlogger

After 19 message and outreach through media, there might conceivably be some Americans still wanting to evacuate who have missed all those messages, not heard any of the outreach efforts or pleas to leave from fellow Americans, and not contacted the State

but are there many? logically, not

Conservative, Inc. media, everyone. Make sure you donate to them.

And maybe give some thought to this: Despite "conservatives" frequently having control of all of Congress, despite occasionally having control of the presidency, and despite sometimes having control of the Congress and the Presidency -- the left has nevertheless scored victory after victory and "conservatives" have suffered defeat after defeat on policy, to the point where we are now hunted, abused internal exiles in what was formerly our own country.

Why is that?

Is it possible that perhaps our Conservative, Inc. leaders are actually far more aligned culturally and ideologically with the left than with their own voters/supporters/readers?

And is it possible they routinely conspire to vote strategically to make sure the left wins all consequential votes on policy? And occasionally tank presidential elections?

Exit Answer: It's more than possible. That is, unquestionably, the reality of the situation.

Let us say that under Trump things had gone this badly (just accept that premise for this second). If it had, the second those Marines were killed the MOABs would be ordered. I am certain of this.

As a corollary to this, I think they will start ratcheting down on ANY mention of Afghanistan. They cannot control the message and everything they do makes it worse, so they will simply make it a verboten subject.

99 I was told Alex the Chick did some research on this yesterday, and I did some quick research as well. As far as I can tell-- and I may be wrong-- these "students and teachers" might all actually be Afghan nationals in America who had the trip arranged through the school because some of them worked there. They are there to see their relatives.

Posted by: shibumi at August 26, 2021 12:26 PM (OFJlJ)


It's really hard to tell because the reporting is atrocious but the only involvement by the school seems to be that the school was contacted by a group working with refugees to help get info to the State Department about the families. They were traveling on special military visas so the strongest likelihood is that these are refuge family members of Afghani nationals who were working with the US and who were on a trip back to see family. And they stupidly relied on the US to keep its word about protection.

What does seem clear is that this isn't a school trip in any way - it's people who live in the same school district.

145 AFAIK there were draw-down targets set (number of personnel in-country by certain dates), and given that schedule the military had to choose between keeping Bagram, and doing everything else they had planned to do (mostly involving security for the embassy and other locations).

So they chose to give up Bagram, to meet the timetable and hit the numerical target. This may not be correct, or the whole story - but it does fit the facts we do know.

Shorter: a ridiculous judgement error was made, and/or a character failure occurred in that the commander didn't flatly state the metrics and timetable had to be adjusted so that we left Bagram last.

It's just a continuation of Obama's Arab Spring. It was planned this way and 100% on purpose. I can prove it, too.

In June Biden gave a speech to the G7 members assuring them the US was "back at the table" and there for the long haul. It was on purpose. Because if the Biden administration told the Europeans what was happening, the Europeans could've planned and fortified the area.

Biden (Obama, Jarrett) WANTS the Taliban to have Afghanistan. That is the plan.

I read that Joe told General Miller, Commander-Afghanistan, the US military in all of Afghanistan would be reduced to 700 by sometime in Mid-August, and down to zero NLT August 31. Miller decided he could not defend Bagram, the Embassy, and the Kabul airport with that number of troops (not all of the 700 were infantry). So he bugged-out of Bagram. Did Blinken force that decision? Maybe we will find out.

I'd order Tajikistan (who does answer to Russia on many things) to actively assist and expedite the transfer of Americans and other Westerners - and only them, no Afghans - to the Russian embassy in Dushanbe. I would then keep them fed and watered, provide stopgap medical care if needed, put them on planes to Moscow and then put them up in some hotels. As I got enough evacuees to fill a plane, I'd send repatriation flights to Kennedy airport.

I'd look great, it would cost little and I'd really humiliate the US even further in the process.

All of this was predicted by Dr. Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine over a month ago. He did a video (banned on most sites) where he predicted a new outbreak, starting with those who got the Pfizer drug (the weakest of the lot). His theory is your immune system goes on vacation after being supercharged, and whoever got the drug is far more susceptible when it wanes, and you go into a plateau stage.

Of course, we can't believe the guy who invented the shit. That sort of trust goes to dancing teens singing about the vaccine and Dr Fauci.

240 I read that Joe told General Miller, Commander-Afghanistan, the US military in all of Afghanistan would be reduced to 700 by sometime in Mid-August, and down to zero NLT August 31. Miller decided he could not defend Bagram, the Embassy, and the Kabul airport with that number of troops (not all of the 700 were infantry). So he bugged-out of Bagram. Did Blinken force that decision? Maybe we will find out.
Posted by: Gref at August 26, 2021 12:39 PM (AMIL/)

and if he had just been given a few thousand more troops, like Biden sent to HKIA this week anyway, he wouldn't have had to abandon Bagram. or lose Kabul. or the Marines.

The best estimate I've ever seen is that 42 Americans deserted over the years and stayed in Vietnam. 1 or 2 of them came back years later and were quietly court-martialed. Unlike in Vietnam, in this case there are a number of people who have blue passports who aren't of American origin, and I don't doubt that some of them will stay in Afghanistan. But nowhere near 1,500 -- more like single digits.

306 Since I am personally involved in some of the private efforts to help US Citizens, I can tell you they are not all out. There are a variety of reasons people stayed this long, not the least of which is the current administration was very misleading on dates. Ostensibly, many of these people worked for contractors and were needed on the ground. Others had family members there whom they were trying to get out. Irrespective, they are US Citizens and these evacuation plans always account for ALL contingencies. We NEVER have left anyone behind and I can tell you the current plans to do that are seriously impacting people who live by that creed.

307 My guess (and I expect to have to guess on account of never getting the truth) is that Bagram was abandoned first out of sheer fucking idiocy. You really cannot underestimate the lack of potential of these smoothbrains. They were convinced this was all going to work out nicely because on account for The Taliban's concern about its standing in the international community. They said that. I don't that's spin. They're plenty dumb enough to believe that. Sounds like something John Kerry would say.

Closing bagram air base was to have been the last thing done under Trump's plan. It was going to be the Alamo after everyone else was evacuated. biden changed the plan because orangeman bad.

315 From the Daily Mail online, about the students -

Several of our families over summer break independently decided to go home to Afghanistan and see their extended family. A lot of the families, their nuclear families are here but all their grandparents and everybody are still in Afghanistan, said Mike Serban, director of the school board's Family and Children Engagement program, which assists the district's many refugee families, according to CBS8.

They're still in Afghanistan trying to find their way to the airport or on an airplane, he said.

Fairdoon Hashemi and Mohammad Sarfarez, bilingual community liaisons for the FACE program, first became aware of the problem when reached August 16 by families stuck there.

They contacted the liaisons to tell them they would not be back in time for the first day of school but to hold spots for their students, Howard Shen, the school district's media contact.

I clearly recall, about a month after 9/11 and a day before the operation in Afghanistan started, Senator Biden taking to the floor of the Senate to criticize George Bush for his inaction against the terrorists. Hre's the thing: As Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committeee, he knew that the Rangers were already enroute to jump into Afghanistan, so he made that speech purely because his window of opportunity to criticize Bush was closing and he wanted to get it in. The briefness of the nation uniting behind Bush was less than a month, then the Democrats were back to business as ususal.

Only going on what I'm seeing here it seems the injuries were critical enough that numbers of those who succumb to their injuries are increasing. Thus the changing numbers.

Posted by: BunkerintheBurbs at August 26, 2021 01:02 PM I don't remember who it was , but one of Trump's staff recited the exact wording that Trump used when he personally talked to the head of the Taliban regarding troop withdrawals. This was 18 months ago, and the deal was that as soon as anyone associated with the Taliban did anything to destabilize the Afghan government, harm civilians or US/Allied forces, immediate retribution would happen and the deal was off. And for 18 months. we had no service casualties. Crenshaw at noon today said we allowed Al Qaeda and ISIS-K to kill each other as they are enemies ideologically as it was to our benefit. But we had experienced little problems with the Taliban because they knew what was coming with the Trump adminstration. Trump also had suggested the adminstration would assist in getting a place at the table for the Taliban with the Afghan goverment so that they could survive each other. Then Biden came in and blew up the entire agreement with his bragadocious BS and changed the timeline to 9/11 .

___________

In that recent Israeli study, over 60% of the hospitalized covid patients had been fully vaccinated, before they got re-infected and sick again.

The vaccines only provide some protection against the virus, and the protection does not last very long (which is why the FDA is now saying people will need booster shots every 6 months).

Natural immunity, which many people get from having had the virus and recovered (meaning their own immune systems have produced natural antibodies and T cells, etc., to fight off the virus) is better (and lasts much longer) than the limited immunity the vaccines provide.

2 reasons:

1. They were already in the region (Persian Gulf), so quickest to get to the scene, and

It appears the Taliban tried something different this time around. Open source reporting shows that rather than rocking up and going toe to toe with the Afghan national army, they appear to have simply called everyone in the entire country, instead, told them they were in control, and began assuming the functions of government as they went.

Have the Taliban executed a great military victory using some of the most modern means ? WhatsApp and one huge bluff.

What I am hearing now, is that the Vaccine does NOT stop you from getting infected at all. It fights the infection from seriously invading your lungs, but the nasal passages stay infected (as the antibodies are all blood stream related). Thus, you can have the Vids, with no fever, where it acts like the Common Cold (which is a Corona Virus by the way)... and you end up SPREADING IT because you are not sick enough to stay the F home.

This apparently was KNOWN when they tested the 'vaccine', and there were some announcements sort of implying this... but they let the 'Vaccine will make it so you don't get it' story run, because that lie was easier to sell to the population.

576 "We're going to come back and hit you harder than any country has ever been hit," Trump said he told Akhundzada, recounting the threatened consequences if the Taliban failed to make peace. "And your village, where I know you are and where you have everybody, that's going to be the point at which the first bomb is dropped."

A few hours after that March 2020 call, Trump put an insurance payment down on the threat. When the Taliban attacked an Afghan checkpoint shortly after Trump hung up, U.S. fighter jets rained down fury on the attackers. A stung Taliban immediately called for de-escalation, saying it was committed to the "plans to implement all parts of the agreement one after another to prevent conflict escalation."


Trump made it clear that if they messed with him the response would be swift.

That's because the average or maybe below average person hears vaccine and thinks its like small pox or polio. If EVERYONE gets vaccinated it will eliminate the virus. Except not all vaccines are 100%. The don't have a vax for the common cold do they . . .

If they had called it a gene therapy instead of a vaccine, people would have understood it as a possible prophylactic treatment that might work or not, rather than a vaccine. But they wouldn't have gotten many people to sign up for experimental gene therapy.

This is correct. Also, the vaxxed have a much, much higher viral load that those that are non-vaxxed, FWIW.

Remember: according to the CDC, if you die 14 days within being vaxxed, you do not count as vaxxed. If you die 30 days after being vaxxed, that is not due to the vaxx. If you have one of two vaxxes, you are not counted as vaxxed. So really, the ONLY way to get counted as a vaxx death is if you have had TWO vaxxes and die between day 15 and day 29. Also... Israeli hospitals are full of the vaxxed right now.

Yes, but they won't be ours. You need a code to activate ours. Otherwise they're just clubs to beat an airplane with. Same with the aircraft we left behind, by the way, although there probably is some way to hotwire them with Chinese help.

Yeah. Uniparty politicians are a lot different than Trump, and any other normal person. The normal person says "you will do A, and if it turns out to be B, then C."

A Uniparty politician says "perception is reality. B happened. Adjust the messaging to make a new reality where A happened instead."

That works on the softheaded idiots in this country, but not in Afghanistan, where people aren't such a bunch of dumbshits. And these crooks are learning that in real time.

If you have one of two vaxxes, you are not counted as vaxxed. So really, the ONLY way to get counted as a vaxx death is if you have had TWO vaxxes and die between day 15 and day 29. Also... Israeli hospitals are full of the vaxxed right now.

692 I think the concern would be more AAA (anti-aircraft artillery) than MANPADs (hand-held SAMs). As Marcus T. pointed out here last week, Taliban has plenty of basic AAA, which can easily make HKIA inoperable (a few batteries on approach and take-off flight paths, done). But as I've said since the start, very unlikely Taliban would do this, or allow it, since it's basically just prolonging and complicating the war they've mostly won (politically) - their prime interest is in seeing most western foreigners OUT. Sooner the better.

Surprised the Talib couldn't cordon off the airport effectively. It's in their interest to do so, and ISIS-K is an enemy (for the moment - in A'stan, you never step into the same river twice, everything is moving or moveable).

Afterward, the chain of command essentially said get some payback. For the next 3 days, they did. When he finally got back and into sick bay he found out he had a broken back.

So, yeah, I expect the troops on the ground at HKIA are pretty motivated right now. I also expect they will not be let loose to get some payback.

724 Well, that's where the leaky vaccines and 6 mo boosters come in to play. We will increase the rate of mutation exponentially with a preference towards more robust surviving virii forms. Eventually, due to the pressure of the vaccines shaping the mutative process, we will get a super bug. Pretty elegant we thought. We got the idea from Resident Evil.


There are things that can be done to help those that have been vaxxed stay healthy. It just takes some research, and many will reject it, since they are classified as "alternative medicine."

Big airport in an urban area with both civilian and military sides. There aren't enough Taliban to do it effectively, and it's not really their priority versus trying to take control of government.

At Least 100 Afghan Refugees Flagged on Terror Watch List, One With ISIS Ties

Defense One reported on Tuesday that 100 of the evacuees were flagged through the use of biometric identification systems. It's possible that the terror persons of interest were previously detained in Afghan government or American jails, where their information would've been collected by authorities. . .

[This] was published when a mere 7,000 persons were evacuated from Kabul. Since then, President Biden has bragged about moving more than 70,000 people from Afghanistan to various third countries such as Qatar. It's almost certain that many more potential terrorists have eeked through the system, many of whom haven't been logged into biometric ID systems by the United States government.

The Biden administration completely surrendered to the Taliban - the same Taliban that gave safe harbor to the terrorists who murdered thousands of Americans on September 11, 2001.

Now, the Taliban is essentially holding our Americans hostage in Afghanistan.

To make matters worse, Biden hasn't ruled out recognizing the Taliban as a legitimate government.

796 Khe Sanh.

I had a friend who was there for part of his tour in Viet Nam (a Marine). It was a forward observation post, where the Marines could "look" into the DMZ and into the Ho Chi Minh trail over the border in Laos/Cambodia.

At times, it was besieged by up to 5 regular NVA divisions.
It was there for a purpose, even though it was really dangerous to be stationed there.
Eventually, it became untenable, and MAC V found a reason to pull out.
It was dangerous as f*ck for the Marines there, but was there for a purpose.
This crapfest in Kabul is the result of multiple bad decisions by Top Men in our government. Army Chief of Staff, Joint Chiefs, Sec Def, Sec State, President, Nat Security advisor and on, and on.

797 Will Joe be there to meet the flag draped coffins of these US service members?

Will he send Kahmala?

Or not send anyone and ignore it?

798 Trump has to be ballistic right now.He loved and admired the military and to see them put in this position because of an idiot who stole an election...

799 "officials" confirm US "casualties."

Deliberately vague is their preferred strategy because... we're stupid.

800 Now, the Taliban is essentially holding our Americans hostage in Afghanistan.

To make matters worse, Biden hasn't ruled out recognizing the Taliban as a legitimate government.

That's why Stand For America just launched a petition calling on President Biden to refuse to recognize the Taliban.

801 Emergence of the new Omega Variant?
Lambda/Delta variant. Someone from Pfizer I know told me they are terrified of it.

*

I'm going to assume it's because it's such a variation of the original that people not only won't know they have it, but it won't ping a positive test.

That has to be terrifying for the folks selling the booster.
