Report: Six Planes Filled with US Citizens, Afghan SIV Holders Stranded at Northern Afghanistan Airport – Biden State Dept. Refuses to Act

As reported earlier, several retired Special Forces and US Veterans traveled to Afghanistan to rescue and bring the  Americans that Joe Biden left stranded home.

Operation ‘Pineapple Express’ – Rogue Team of Retired US Vets Rescue Afghan Allies During Secret Missions Conducted BEHIND BIDEN’S BACK

During the first phase of their mission, they were able to help almost 700 US citizens and allies get to their evacuation flights at the airport safely. The special operators used their contacts in and outside of Afghanistan to transport people safely, and even worked with US troops on the ground who had to disobey orders to help the rogue rescue effort.

Our retired soldiers care more about trapped Americans than the current Commander in Chief who told active forces on the ground to “stand down.”

The American heroes reportedly have 6 chartered airplanes (four 737s and two others) on the Tarmac in northern Afghanistan with the rescued people on board, and can’t get the administration’s help.

The planes cannot take off unless the Taliban clears them, which can easily be handled with a telephone call. Our heroes and the people they rescued are sitting ducks, hostages of the Taliban, who operate the airport at Mazar-i-Sharif. It’s only a matter of time before they’re targeted. The Taliban want recognition from the US gov’t, in order to receive a lot of money.

Emily Miller is in direct contact and has the information on her substack page.

Dave and I have been talking daily about the Americans waiting in the airport for those planes to get permission to leave. I told Dave yesterday that the planes weren’t moving (read Friday update), and he thought they would. This is what he texted me today:

Well your guy was right. We kept getting told we would fly out today but they just told us definitely not. Planning for resumption of flights tomorrow or Sunday. Taliban cooperating.

I asked Dave about the people waiting for seven days in the airport:

The waiting is horrible. And no one is being told anything. And the conditions are terrible. Sleeping on hard floors and people are hungry.

But, you know, Taliban are actually cooperating. The only ones they are giving a hard time to are former Afghan govt leadership. Day before yesterday they came in and arrested a former official. But everyone else they have left alone.

Sam in Project Exodus still says the planes aren’t leaving because the airline hasn’t gotten documents from the State Department for destination airfield. “I’ve been told things are stalled,” he texted me tonight.

We both hope Dan is right, and we’re wrong. Dan texted this:

There is no way they are not letting these people leave. They have no reason to detain them (other than money and negotiating leverage).

With there already being internal fighting between Taliban leadership, Afghanistan bankrupt, inflation 80%, people starving; etc.; TB know they need legitimization and foreign aid. They are savages but they are not stupid.
