Most Americans are still in shock over Joe Biden’s total failure in Afghanistan.
He committed an unconscionable betrayal.
But Joe Biden handed something over to the Taliban that could get Americans killed.
After Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan put the Taliban back in power, Biden then decided to depend on the Taliban to help evacuate American citizens from the country.
But when Biden surrendered Bagram Air Force Base, it forced our military into a defensive posture at Kabul Airport and allowed the Taliban to swiftly set up checkpoints surrounding the entrance.
And after abandoning thousands of Americans behind enemy lines, according to POLITICO, Joe Biden turned over lists of Americans and Afghan allies to the Taliban in hopes they would allow U.S. citizens and allies through the checkpoints so they could leave the country.
POLITICO exclusively reported:
U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that’s prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.
The move, detailed to POLITICO by three U.S. and congressional officials, was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan as chaos erupted in Afghanistan’s capital city last week after the Taliban seized control of the country. It also came as the Biden administration has been relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport.
After previous reports that Taliban fighters went door-to-door trying to find Americans or Afghans who helped the U.S. military, most Americans couldn’t believe Biden would actually do such a dumb thing as to essentially give the Taliban a “kill list.”
However, during one of his press conferences, Joe Biden didn’t deny that he gave the Taliban a list of Americans who were still in Afghanistan.
“There have been occasions when our military has contacted their military counterparts in the Taliban and said this, for example, this bus is coming through with X number of people on it, made up of the following group of people. We want you to let that bus or that group through,” he said.
“So, yes there have been occasions like that. To the best of my knowledge, in those cases, the bulk of that has occurred and they have been let through,” Biden said in response to a question about providing the Taliban with a kill list.
“I can’t tell you with any certitude that there’s actually been a list of names,” Biden rambled on. “There may have been. But I know of no circumstance. It doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist, that here’s the names of 12 people, they’re coming, let them through. It could very well have happened.”
Republicans in Congress are now calling on Biden to resign or be impeached for his dereliction of duty.
With Democrats in control of the House, impeaching Joe Biden isn’t likely to happen right now. But if Republicans take back the House in 2022, Joe Biden’s Presidency could be on the line.
