Another horrible embarrassment in the evacuation of Afghanistan by the clowns in the Biden Administration.
On Thursday news broke that the Biden administration was charging Americans $2,000 to pay for their flights from Kabul after the Taliban took over the city.
State Dept's Overseas Security Advisory Council said Aug. 14: "Repatriation flights are not free, & passengers will be required to sign a promissory loan agreement & may not be eligible to renew their U.S. passports til the loan is repaid. Cost may be $2,000 or more per person." https://t.co/K9bb3xtoYE pic.twitter.com/2pPo3n64dJ

These are the same people who give free healthcare, homes, education, foodstamps, etc to any global citizen who can make their way across the open US southern border!
After public outrage the Biden State Department backtracked on this regulation later in the day on Thursday.
BREAKING: State Department appears to backtrack, says no reimbursements will be sought from US citizens fleeing Afghanistan after reporting said they were being asked to pay $2,000 or more for a flight out of Kabul.

However — the form to pay the US government for your flight is STILL posted online.
Just checked again this AM & despite State Dept spox saying yesterday that “we have no intention of seeking any reimbursement from those fleeing Afghanistan”, the required “U.S. Embassy Kabul Repatriation Assistance Request 2021” form still makes you promise to pay up to $2,000+. https://t.co/146zecorCM
