Biden Refuses to Help 40,000 Americans Trapped in Afghanistan
Americans could face mass slaughter if not rescued
Following Joe Biden's disastrous pull out of Afghanistan, which has led to the Taliban take over the country, American citizens are already paying the price.
House Republicans blasted the Biden administration, saying it had “no plan” to help Americans get out safely.
The GOP Twitter account shared a video of Pentagon press secretary John Kirby detailing what’s going on at the airport in Kabul.
“What is the plan to get these people to the airport?” CNN host John Berman asked in the video.

“First of all, from a military perspective, John, our focus is at the airport,” Kirby responded.
“We’re working hand-in-glove with the State Department in terms of supporting their plans at processing these individuals. But, again, that’s something that we’re going to be doing on a case-by-case, day-by-day basis.
“Right now, though, I don’t want to set the expectation that we are equipped and able to go out into the countryside and physically move people into Kabul. Our focus right now — the troops that we have there are at the airport.
"The idea is to make sure we can get that — the air operations not only have they resumed, but they keep them in place for as long as possible.”
“If they can’t get to the airport, what does it matter if you have the capabilities to get them out from the airport?” Berman asked.
“John, I understand that. And we all understand that the security situation in Kabul is not ideal,” Kirby answered.
“Right now, the airport is open, and people are able to get through the gates there. There’s a processing process that actually has to occur, but right now, things are moving out of the airport, and again our focus is on making sure that continues.”
The Biden administration told Americans to make their way to the Kabul airport, But they could not guarantee their security as they made their way there.
But Americans who are stuck in Afghanistan are avoiding encountering the Taliban on the way to the airport.
The situation should prompt the military to intervene on these Americans’ behalf.
