    Secretary of Defense: US Can’t Collect ‘Large Numbers’ of Americans From Afghanistan

    in News



    U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said Wednesday that the military does not have the capacity to collect “large numbers” of Americans who may be struggling to escape Afghanistan.
    Article by Ken Silva from our news partners at The Epoch Times.
    Austin’s remarks were in response to questions about the Taliban allegedly blocking Afghan allies from reaching Kabul’s international airport, as well as concerns over the possibility of thousands of Americans being stranded in Afghanistan if the military sticks to its Aug. 31 withdrawal deadline.
    Austin and the State Department gave differing accounts of what is happening on the ground in Kabul.
    “We will continue to coordinate and deconflict with the Taliban, and make sure that those people who need to get to the airfield have the right credentials to ensure passage,” Austin added. “And the Taliban has been checking those credentials—and if they have them, they have allowed them to pass.”
    However, in a statement on Wednesday, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul said “the United States government cannot ensure safe passage to Hamid Karzai International Airport.”
    Shortly afterwards, Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, the second-highest-ranking U.S. diplomat, confirmed in a press conference reports that the Taliban are preventing some Afghans from getting to the airport. Some videos uploaded online showed apparent Taliban members hitting people with sticks and whips who were trying to get into the facility.
    “We have seen reports that the Taliban, contrary to their public statements and their commitments to our government, are blocking Afghans who wish to leave the country from reaching the airport,” Sherman told reporters, adding that “many, many” Americans are arriving at the airport.


    “I will tell you this, in spite of the obstacles, many, many Afghans in all of the categories, are finding their way to the airport,” she said.
    Austin told reporters that the United States will continue to rely on diplomacy with the Taliban, rather than using force. The roughly 4,500 troops on the ground are required to defend the airport, he said, stressing the importance of preventing another deadly incident where citizens flood the runway.
    “The forces that we have are focused on security of the airfield. You know what happens if we lose the ability to provide that security. I don’t want to detract from that [reports of people struggling to reach the airport]—but we have to make sure we can not only secure the airfield, but defend it as well,” Austin said.
    A reporter pressed Austin on the issue of whether more could be done to evacuate Americans, pointing out that there are special forces on the ground that have the capacity to extract Americans from around Kabul and beyond. But Austin said those forces are unable to collect the large numbers of people that would be required.
    “I would draw a distinction between extracting someone in extreme circumstances versus going out and collecting large numbers of American citizens,” he said. “We don’t have the capability to go out and collect large numbers of people.”
    Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was also at Wednesday’s press conference, and he provided an update on the outflow of evacuees. According to Milley, there are two main entry points for people to get to Kabul airport—one processing about 150 evacuees an hour, and the other about 350.
    Reports have estimated up to some 15,000 Americans remaining in Afghanistan, as well as untold tens of thousands who assisted the United States over the last 20 years.
    Unsatisfied with the answers, one reporter questioned Austin and Milley about why they are “leaving the 10s of thousands of Afghans who’ve helped us over the past 20 years behind” rather than doing more militarily. Austin insisted that they’re doing all that they can.
    “As I said, we’re going to evacuate everybody that we can physically, possibly evacuate,” Austin said. “And we’ll conduct this process for as long as we possibly can.”
    Some national security commentators took issue with the reporters’ questions, accusing the press of being tougher when the United States tries to exit a war than when it’s trying to start one.
    “[Milley and Austin] are saying the Taliban is allowing people with visas, documentation, etc. to leave. The media keeps giving them hypotheticals, bringing up unconfirmed reports, basically begging them to start fighting again,” Defense Priorities fellow Richard Hanania said on Twitter.
    “America creates the TSA, sees air travel and airports get worse for decades, fails to control anything for 20 years in Afghanistan,” Hanania added. “Media: ‘Why can’t Biden pull off a perfect withdrawal from the Kabul airport in a country where the government just collapsed?’”
    The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together

    It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.

    In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
    Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
    This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.

    “Go Down In Infamy”–Trump Calls Out Biden For Leaving Americans Behind

    By
    Jacob Palmieri -

    August 20, 2021




    Trump continues to unload on Joe Biden.
    Trump released a statement calling on Biden for leaving Americans behind in Afghanistan.
    He pointed out that these Americans are at risk of death.

    He then called out Biden saying that this decision will “go down in infamy.”



    This is the worst part of Biden’s pull-out.
    Americans are trapped in Afghanistan and the Biden admin is doing nothing.

    Update:
