The Tragic Human and National Security Consequences of Biden’s Withdrawal

Joe Biden and his handlers, along with top Pentagon and State Department officials, share culpability for tragic human and national security consequences of an ill-conceived Afghanistan U.S. troop withdrawal transparently timed for vainglorious Sept. 11 20th anniversary victory lap optics.

Instead, that debacle has abandoned hundreds of Americans and tens of thousands of allies stranded at the mercy of Taliban victors has left the U.S. blind to regional terrorist buildups, and has emboldened and empowered our adversaries to provoke future attacks on our mainland.

Epic blunders involved: staging the troop draw-down during the height of the warm summer Taliban fighting season and before American civilians and friendly at-risk Afghans were evacuated; abandoning our most strategic Bagram Air Base in the middle of the night without informing the Afghan military and our NATO allies, and leaving behind more than $80 billion of equipment and weaponry that has made the Taliban one of the world’s best-equipped military forces.

Taliban trophies include more than 100 helicopters, including 33 Black Hawks, four C-130 transport planes, and about 60 other fixed-wing aircraft.

Joe Biden has repeated the tagline that ”we will never leave anyone behind” in several speeches, including the one he gave in the run-up to the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Most egregiously, he did exactly that when ordering the hasty, chaotic, and deadly August 31 turn-tail Afghanistan surrender that has left hundreds of Americans and tens of thousands of allied supporters helplessly stranded with no foreseeable rescue plan.

In addition, 13 of our brave military service people who did return, were brought back in caskets.

They were casualties of terrorist suicide bombers amid crowded bedlam outside closed gates of the Hamid Karzai International Airport which was being ”protected” by militant Taliban gatekeepers who surrounded the facility.

American civilians and documented allies who had risked perilous journeys to reach those gates amid threats, violence, and intimidation were repeatedly turned away following U.S. Embassy warnings to avoid traveling to the airport and to stay away from certain entry points citing ”security threats.”

Embassy alerts told Americans to avoid traveling to the airport ”unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative.”

Although the U.S. State Department now claims that more than 124,000 people have been evacuated from the country in recent weeks, initial assessments suggest that most of the fleeing Afghan applicants for American Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) status didn’t make it through Taliban checkpoints or the Kabul airport crush where an estimated 200 were killed in the suicide bombing assault.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said that while the actual number of Americans left behind ”who wish to leave” is unknown, the rough estimate is less than 200.

Yes, rough indeed.

On Aug. 25, Blinken had told reportersBased on our analysis, starting on Aug. 14, when our evacuation operations began, there was then a population of as many as 6,000 American citizens in Afghanistan who wanted to leave.” Over the previous 10 days, he said, only about 4,500 of those people and their immediate family members were safely evacuated.

Those other remaining Americans are scattered far and wide throughout Afghanistan surrounded by Taliban, al-Qaeda, and ISIS militants.

Escape for most of those who are trapped will be difficult or impossible.

Since none of Afghanistan’s airports are currently open, those at-risk Americans and Afghans who were unable to enter the airport in Kabul before the international airlift ended must seek land routes.

Also, while the Taliban have said they would allow Afghans with valid passports and visas to travel out of the country, all passport-issuing Western embassies—along with India— have permanently closed, and their diplomats are gone.

The closest crossing point to Pakistan from Kabul going east to Torkham is closed to Afghans, other than in exceptional cases such as medical emergencies.

The other main alternative, south from Kabul at Chaman, is open — but only to those with documents to show they live close to the border in compliance with longstanding mutual arrangements between these adjacent areas.

Entering Iran is an even tougher option because only those with visas or other travel documents are allowed to cross.

The resettlement of Afghan refugees outside the region is another challenging matter.

Anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe has become a major political issue in the wake of the 2015 Syrian refugee influx, although the EU and some member states say they will accept some at-risk Afghans as part of an international settlement program.

The U.K. said it would offer asylum to up to 20,000 Afghans over the next five years in addition to those airlifted out in August.

Biden’s painful Afghanistan withdrawal pains include a nightmarish evacuee vetting and resettlement national security problem to screen out terrorist elements here in America.

As Jessica Vaughn, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, observes, ”The SIV program is in chaos, just like the rest of the Biden administration’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal … Their plan to just bring people into the United States, plop them onto active military bases and sort it all out later is a terrible one. Anyone can see that.”

The Defense Department has made space available for 2,500 people at Fort Lee in Virginia. The Pentagon has said it will add space at two other bases, Fort Bliss in Texas and Fort McCoy in Wisconsin with a total goal to accommodate up to 22,000 people.

R.J. Hauman, head of government relations at Federation for American Immigration Reform, predicts, ”This is a national disaster waiting to happen.”

The DoD has passed this vetting process fiasco to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security which is already overwhelmed dealing with another Biden administration-caused human and natural security crisis … an unprecedented surge of illegal crossers at the U.S. southern border.

Even more terrifying, recognize that all of this unmitigated disaster has occurred — along with skyrocketing domestic crime rates and inflation — in merely his first half-year in office!

America Needs Accountability for the Afghanistan Mess

America Needs Accountability for the Afghanistan Mess

The die is now cast. America is out of Afghanistan with incredible degrees of shame, regrets, and betrayals. No matter how Biden and his Democrats will spin these cataclysmic events, Afghanistan will become the breeding ground of almost every Muslim terror group on the planet who will then go back to their countries to spread their Islamic faith with terror…

The CDC’s Theft of Your Property is Unconstitutional

The CDC’s Theft of Your Property is Unconstitutional

What do we do when governments created to protect our rights not only fail to do so, but actively subvert them? Yes, we have the right to alter or abolish such a government. It is not insurrection to attempt to restore the Constitution to its rightful place as the supreme law of the land. As Abraham Lincoln said: The people are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it..

Is American Exceptionalism Worth Fighting For?

Is American Exceptionalism Worth Fighting For?

We are a nation of exceptional ideals that is at war with itself. Large swaths of our public believe in identity groups inherently trying to oppress each other. These ‘Social Justice Warriors’, as they are often called, view themselves as some kind of ‘moral and intellectual elite’, uniquely qualified to control the nation ‘fairly’. To these people, freedom and liberty cause oppression…

How was SARS-CoV-2 Created in the Labs and Why is it from China’s Military Network

Based on the scientific evidence left in the SARS2 genome, my scientists and I analyzed and listed over 100 references in the first report to explain what they have done, how to make it, why they are the people who have done it. Including smoking gun evidence, I have reconstructed the protocol and schedule to demonstrate the possible progress of lab-making SARS2 using…

Can My Employer Mandate that I Get the Vaccine or Threaten Me With Termination?

Your health decisions are your individual right to make, supported by the American Medical Association’s Patient Bill of Rights, and none of my business or anyone else’s for that matter. If my employer were threatening to terminate me if I didn’t take an experimental inoculation, I would work to collaborate with them, ask the questions below, extend and document the process…

Tragic Afghanistan Debacle Adds to Joe Biden’s Disastrous Record

And just when we may have thought nothing could get worse … we were wrong. Afghanistan has been surrendered, along with the safety of Americans and fates of loyal resident interpreters who are stranded in remote regions controlled by Taliban militants and Al Qaeda terrorists armed with billions of dollars of advanced weapons our generals gifted them…

Absence of Due Process in COVID-19 Vaccine Approval – Propaganda in Open View

Absence of Due Process in COVID-19 Vaccine Approval – Propaganda in Open View

All the data from the VAERs system was swept under the rug and not even mentioned in the letters or the proposed package insert. 13,068 deaths and 225,602 vaccine-related hospitalizations, emergency, and office visits that were carefully reported by concerned health care workers to the CDC and subsequently verified and given permanent VAERS numbers were completely ignored…

Ilhan Omar Strangely Silent on Slaughter of Afghani Women at the Hands of Islamic Radicals

If you are a woman of color in the US, and rise to be a member of the US Congress, with all the power and money that confers… the society in which this happened is to be condemned. If you are a woman of color… and you are the target of violence by Islamic radicals… well that’s apparently off Ilhan Omar’s radar. Because that radar is programmed to support such violence…

Are We Doomed to Repeat History?

Are We Doomed to Repeat History?

Important changes are on the horizon and we are indisputably exiting the era of maintaining big costly, standing armies because military planners already know that the United States needs to rethink the concept of future warfare. In an instant, Joe Biden pushed America to the precipice of annihilation. America’s reputation is not just sullied, it’s been grounded into the dirt by…
