“We are f*cking abandoning American citizens,” Army colonel wrote in a frantic series of texts that detail how a group of Americans were rejected at airport as rescue flight awaited.

| September 1, 2021

Poetrooper sends in this report from Just the News. Which confirms that which we already know. We left people behind in Afghanistan so that President Biden could keep his word to the Taliban. This despite Biden’s assertions that America “leave[s] nobody behind” no less than 21 times in the last four years alone. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said it best, Biden “promised the Taliban we’d be out by Aug. 31; he promised the Americans in Afghanistan he’d stay to get them out. He kept his promise to the Taliban and broke his promise to the Americans.”

Just the News reports on the anguished messages coming from American commanders on the ground in Kabul that said in the final hours, before our troops had left, that Americans with passports in hand were being turned away from leaving.

President Biden declared to a puzzled country on Tuesday that the U.S. evacuation from Afghanistan was an “extraordinary success,” while his Pentagon portrayed a prosaic, workaday process to repatriate Americans still stranded in the war-torn country.

But text messages between U.S. military commanders and private citizens mounting last-minute rescues tell a far different story, one in which pleading American citizens were frantically left behind at the Kabul airport gate this past weekend to face an uncertain fate under Taliban rule while U.S. officials sought to spread the blame between high-ranking generals and the State Department

“We are f*cking abandoning American citizens,” an Army colonel assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division wrote Sunday in frustration in a series of encrypted messages that detailed the failed effort to extricate a group of American citizens, hours before the last U.S. soldiers departed Afghanistan.

The text messages and emails were provided to Just the News by Michael Yon, a former Special Forces soldier and war correspondent who was among the private citizens working with private networks and the military to rescue stranded Americans.

Yon told Just the News that a group of Americans were abandoned at the Kabul airport, pleading for help as military officials told them they were finished with evacuations.

“We had them out there waving their passport screaming, ‘I’m American,'” Yon said Tuesday while appearing on the John Solomon Reports podcast.

The heart-wrenching scenes unfolded this weekend as the U.S. military prepared to exit the capital city on Monday, leaving both the airport and most of the country under Taliban control.

“People were turned away from the gate by our own Army,” Yon said.

After the episode ended and the Americans scattered to safe houses to avoid being captured, Yon wrote a stinging email to an Army major whose team had tried to coordinate the rescue before abandoning it.

“You guys left American citizens at the gate of the Kabul airport,” Yon wrote Tuesday to the commander. “Three empty jets paid for by volunteers were waiting for them. You and I talked on the phone. I told you where they were. Gave you their passport images. And my email and phone number. And you left them behind.”

He added: “Great job saving yourselves. Probably get a lot of medals.”

Yon’s account, backed by three dozen text and email exchanges with frontline Army officials in Afghanistan, stands in sharp contrast to the claims of the Biden White House that U.S. citizens would not be left behind in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

“I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded,” White House press secretary Jen Pskai said in an Aug. 23 press briefing. “They are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home.” President Joe Biden earlier this month underscored that position, saying that the United States would evacuate every American who wanted to leave the country.

With the American military no longer in Kabul, the Pentagon’s chief spokesman, John Kirby, acknowledged Tuesday that Americans in fact were left behind. He described a calm, diplomatic scenario for bringing those people home.

The shepard has left his flock to the wolves. The sheepdogs placed in the field to protect the flock have been sent back to the kennels. The shepard now hopes to come to a diplomatic solution with the hungry wolves.

All the people we left behind will either be dead or horrifically tortured by 9/11.

You’ll be able to watch the film on AliRaghead TV.

May as well write them off and send in the cruise missiles to destroy any and everything else that was left. And use the ones responsible for this fiasco as retarding parachutes.

Hell, YouTube and Twitter will gladly show it.

Much of the media is touting the great success of the evacuation. Headlines everywhere. The president said so it must be true.

Some folks are hiding their culpability under “we were following orders”.

This is going to get ugly.

“I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said”…

Irresponsible is looking at American passports, knowing they are ready to go on private aircraft and leaving them.

Irresponsible is when private veterans fund themselves to help get our citizens out, make their efforts known to the Commanders on the ground, and said Commanders tell them to fuck off with not even good luck.

Irresponsible, reprehensible, and criminal are the President, the Sec of Def, the CJCOS, Commander CENTCOM, and the Commanders on the ground.

Now the news is talking about aid to the Taliban. Aid to these worthless murdering assholes and no help for those left behind.

Never in my rather long life have I been so disgusted, angry, and ashamed of my country’s actions. All of those feelings are because of one man, Joe Biden. I believe he is far too stupid to have planned anything other than set a date that his PR people said would look good for him. Then comes the DoD and Commanders who should have given him a workable solution, for which there were several, but instead they kowtowed to him, hemmed and hawed to find what would look best for Biden, which in turn would work best for their fucking careers.

Okay, rant done.

It’s much deeper than just biteme.
Much deeper and encompasses the entire US government bureaucracy, especially the bootlickers in the 5 sided office building.

Evidently, no one from the Pentagon who was advising Biden ever read JP 3-68 “Noncombatant Evacuation Operations”.

That joint publication is pretty clear about a commander’s authority, establishing ROE, coordination with the State Department, and identification and repatriation procedures of U.S. citizens – among other things.

Fucking sad.

We can just change it from “no man left behind” to “very few people left behind to die horrible deaths at the hands of Pedoislamofacistterrorists. Like hardly anybody man.”

Not our best moment.

I’ve been pissed off since Biden initiated this shitshow. Now, I’m even more pissed off because I’m gonna have to side with Michael Yon. The Cantina opens early tonight.

And now the tapes has been released of the phone call between the old PM and Biden. Should prove interesting.

Poe, this sickens me more than I already feel. Something is going to happen in our country. Something that will either change us for the good or the worse. I pray for the former, but I truly believe something is coming.

To be fair, I’m pretty sure he wakes up every morning thinking he’s still a senator, and regularly forgets what room he just walked out of.

“Dr” Jill Biden probably has to remind him to put his pants on before he walks out into the public.

I recall his last words as “you cannot do this, I am the president”
Not sure what she said if anything at all.

She just screamed when struck by the firing squad’s bullets.

As I recall, Saddam made a similar statement just before he “pulled rope.”

Not only did Sadaam Hussein immediately say who he was the moment he was captured, he also said that he was ready to start negotiating with GW Bush. He also had people recording and cheering his execution which says that he was about as revered as Mussolini and his Wife and look at what happened to them!

I’m wondering what this will do to our military. The birds in charge seem to be of the Brown-nosed Turd Polisher breed.

I’m thinking those who see themselves as eagles defending the nation, or sheepdogs protecting the flock are rethinking their career choice. Our troops are in the position of urban police forces who were told to let things burn.

We will lose the good people from our military. The Brown-n… excuse me, the very professional military management types will remain.

Tick Tock….the 20th anniversary of 9/11 is next Saturday. ISIS is going to be looking to make a HUGE statement on that day. I’m sure door kicking is already in effect over there, and numerous ‘stars’ are being lined up to make their television debuts on that day. One performance only….

Jay, I have been thinking the same thing. I hope it will not be on our soil. I hope as much that it will not be brutal deaths in Kabul aired for the world.

Yon can be a self-serving prick and I don’t follow him. I came by this indirectly but I’ll still take Yon’s word over that of anyone in this administration.

OlafTheTanker

I felt the same way, as soon as I heard he hitched his name to this story, I’d want to see as much verifiable and independant proof as possible. Not saying I doubt any of it, more along the lines that I’ve been burned before.

This coming from someone that used to read him constantly until he turned into someone who appeared to want to make news rather than just report it and pissed off as many Vets as possible along the way.

Welp got lost going thru all that rabbit hole history. That name, Yon, was ringing a bell in my befuddled memory banks. Digging thru that blast from the past reminded me of his sh^tbaggery. Also reminded me of some of the commenters that were here then, but gone now. Thanks for those links, Mason. Gotta wonder how much of what Yon is posting is true or not. There is no doubt that we left people there. Americans and good Afghans alike. Got to agree with Devtun’s comment below too. Those thoughts have also been running thru my brain. We saw what happened in other areas of the country with massive unvetted immigrants. They have taken over and turned entire sections of the USA into the sh^t holes that they left. Can anyone say “Minnesota”? “…fundamentally change the face of America.” Look, too, at what has happened over the World with the massive influx of these people, whose stated purpose is to “destroy the infidel.” In many countries, it has already happened. You can’t go into some areas without a full rifle platoon as security. Crime is way up, especially assaults against women. Let’s do the math for a minute. One hundred thousand people spread over 50 states is 2K per state. If only 10% are sleeper agents that 200 nefarious individuals that could wreak all sorts of havoc, spreading terror and discontent. Just as 1984 has become a “How To Book”, thus can “Day of Wrath” be prophesy coming true.… Read more »

BlackFive. Heh, saw “Uncle Jimbo” Hanson on Fox today, opposite KT McFarland. He’s done well.

Damn! Missed that. Uncle Jimbo is the guy over at Blackfive who put my “Sheepdogs” poem in video form on YouTube. He didn’t tell me he’d done it and I wasn’t even aware it was there for a coupla years after he did it.

Tucker Carlson seems to be getting behind the smugness of the Bidung administration. They are planning to resettle hundreds of thousands of random Afghans who never worked w/ US gov’t to swing districts especially in States like Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Pennsylvania in time for the ’22 midterm elections. Oh terrific. This was classic bait and switch. The US gov’t purposefully left behind Afghan translators – people who could think for themselves, and gulp…actually loves America. For Pete’s sake, they might even vote Republican.

Clinton flooded Lewiston Maine with Somalis.
Crime skyrocketed. People fled. Place is a shithole now.
Biden will pick some sleepy rural town and flood it as well.
This method would never work in a large city and that is why
they pick a small town that can easily be overwhelmed to install
political leaders that will do their bidding.

Coming to a town near you……………

Docduracoat

These Afghans are all moslem religious fundamentalists.
They will not vote for the party of sex change, lgtb, gay marriage, and gun control.
Even if the Dems promise free welfare for all 4 wives.
They have a natural home in the party of family values.
So the Democrats May be surprised at the voting patterns of these future voters

I picked up on this yesterday, and thought folks here might be interested in reading about the conversation between Biden and Ghani – from Reuters: https://www.reuters.com/world/exclusive-call-before-afghan-collapse-biden-pressed-ghani-change-perception-2021-08-31/

The part of the article that stands out to me is this:

“In much of the call, Biden focused on what he called the Afghan government’s ‘perception’ problem. “I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said. “And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

The “…there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.” suggests Biden was urging Ghani to help create a false narrative about the security situation on the ground.

They tried to impeach Trump over a phone call. Biden should be impeached over this one for asking an ally to help him spin a story and lie to the American people.

Just my .02 cents.

FACT: On the day he was inaugurated, Joe Biden was older than Ronald Reagan was when he left office.
