Hundreds of Americans have been put in a deadly position by Joe Biden.
And he’s doing nothing to help them.
Joe Biden enraged even Democrats with this horrible betrayal of Americans.
Hundreds of Americans were left behind in Afghanistan after President Joe Biden promised that he’d evacuate all Americans.
Now the Biden administration is doing little to help people who they abandoned.
Nasria is a pregnant California native who did everything she could to make it to the airport, Voice of America (VOA) reported.
She said that the State Department then told Nasria that she would get “picked up” if she went to a certain location, however the Taliban blocked her from getting to the area at gunpoint and shot at her when she attempted to get past them.
Now Nasria is afraid that she’ll die in Afghanistan as Taliban members are “going door-to-door … trying to see if anybody has a blue passport” in an attempt to find American citizens, according to Nasria’s VOA interview published Friday.
The Taliban has reportedly also refused to let planes at the Mazar-i-Sharif airport take off, that would take Americans and allies to safety, and the Biden administration has done little to help.
CBS News reported that “19 American citizens and two permanent residents” were on the planes that the Taliban was refusing to let go.
A senior congressional source told the network that “the Taliban is basically holding them hostage to get more out of the Americans.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) ripped the Biden administration over its “delay and inaction.”
“My staff & I have worked night & day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in Mazar-e Sharif to take American citizens, at-risk Afghan allies, & their families to safety,” Blumenthal said. “My office joined forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates—NGOs, former servicemembers, & journalists—to try & evacuate our fellow citizens & Afghan allies.
“I haven’t yet spoken publicly about these efforts because we worried that heightened attention would only escalate tensions & put these people at even greater risk of being targeted,” he continued. “I have been deeply frustrated, even furious, at our government’s delay & inaction. There will be plenty of time to seek accountability for the inexcusable bureaucratic red tape that stranded so many of our Afghan allies.
“For now, my singular focus remains getting these planes in the air & safely to our airbase in Doha, where they have already been cleared to land,” the senator added. “I expect the White House & State Department to do everything in their power—absolutely everything—to make this happen. These are American citizens & Afghans who risked everything for our country. We cannot leave them behind.”
A State Department official reportedly told The Washington Free Beacon that the American government has few ways to help rescue operations that are in progress.
