Joe Biden faced criticism after stranding thousands of Americans and Afghan green card carriers behind in Afghanistan after the country fell to the Taliban in August.
The Biden regime didn’t let stranded Americans delay their exit from the country. They insisted at the time that “only” 100 Americans were left behind as Americans fled the Taliban terrorists.

But that was a lie.
The Biden State Department on Thursday admitted that at least 363 Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan today! And that is after private groups have rescued hundreds of Americans left in Afghanistan since the US fled at the end of August.
State Dept. informed congressional staff Thursday that it is in touch with 363 American citizens in Afghanistan, 176 of whom want to leave, per @jmhansler
That is significantly higher than the estimates of roughly 100 in Aug. which Admin officials regularly cited.
