STRANDED: Congressmen and Others Accuse Biden of Blocking US Citizens from Kabul Airport, Leaving Them to be Beaten by Taliban Terrorists

Reports trickled in throughout Saturday that American citizens in Afghanistan were being blocked by U.S. military and government officials from entering Kabul airport so they could escape the (thanks to Biden) terrorist controlled nation. Several reports also said Americans are being beaten by Taliban terrorists at the airport. The reports reached a crescendo Saturday night with two Texas Republican Congressmen and military veterans, Dan Crenshaw and Ronny Jackson angrily calling out Joe Biden.

Crenshaw, “America, you need to know this: Biden is not letting US citizens through the airport gates. It has been impossible to get anyone through for the last 24 hours. This administration has been lying about their intent to save Americans. Unforgivable.”

Jackson, “I am furious!! My team has been on the phone all day trying to get AMERICAN CITIZENS out. They have been just outside the airport numerous times, but the State Department WILL NOT help them…They have been beaten by the Taliban at check points and told to leave and come back with large sums of money. Biden is going to get them killed! Enough!! We have put someone who gives a damn in charge RIGHT NOW!”

Earlier in the day journalist Lara Logan had made a similar complaint, “Most Americans don’t understand what’s happening in Kabul – been on this all night again w no end. US citizens are fighting through enemy lines to get to the airport. When they show their blue passport to 82nd soldiers at the gate, many are turned away & sent back to the Taliban…All that stands between these Americans & safety/home is the US govt & military.”

Reporter Michael Yon confirmed, “All true. Getting similar from sources on ground.”

As did former Trump State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, “100% true”

CNN’s Clarissa Ward, “Talking to a woman, a US citizen, who worked as a translator for the US for more than ten years, who was not able to get into the Kabul airport yet again today. She will try again tomorrow but is completely terrified.”

Trump admin alum Kristina Baum, “This sentiment is rampant with our cases on the ground at HKIA. Taliban now beating US Passport holders at the gate. Tear gas too.”

John Cardillo, “I’m hearing from people very close to TF Pineapple that the State Dept. is actively blocking the private extractions of Americans by our private operators. Why? Why is the US Govt. leaving Americans stranded to be killed in Afghanistan? Something very sinister going on.”

“Now being told that State Dept. is telling nations surrounding Afghanistan not to allow private jets handling the private extractions to land and/or refuel. This is inexplicable and evil.”

UPDATE: Afghan vet Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL), “US citizens are not being allowed into Kabul international. Biden has ordered the gates closed. Our fellow Americans will soon be left behind. Unbelievable and unforgivable.”
