By: Diane Sori and Craig Andresen / Right Side Patriots / Right Side Patriots Radio s to not only weaken America's military and sully our reputation on the world stage, but to do so in such a way that there will be no way for the U.S. to stop the formation and spread of the islamic caliphate...the Levant if you will.
Think we're kidding...we're not..for the man who bowed down to kings and and kissed the hands of imams is the very man who released GITMO incarcerated Taliban operatives knowing well that they had but one objective in mind...to rejoin the fight against American forces both in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Obama, a traitor to this country, is now shadow directing America's pullout from the very country that served as a much needed stop gap between the islamic controlled countries of the Middle East and those more friendly to the West. Now relishing in America's Afghan debacle, Obama remains silent and that itself says all one needs to know for this, the man who has deep hatred for our country knows that right now he's more valuable to "the cause" behind the scenes than he is out in front.
And with his having announced our military's August 31st date of withdrawal, Biden knows he has repeated the most serious of Obama's anything but a mistake...when first on June 22, 2011, Obama announced to the world that he had just ordered the U.S. military to withdraw 10,000 troops from Afghanistan by the end of the year and to pull out another 23,000 by the summer of 2012, and again on May 27, 2014, when he announced his plan for a full troop withdrawal by end of 2016. And here was where the Taliban were able to start planning their return to power as they just had to wait the U.S. out. And with these two announcements Barack HUSSEIN Obama knowingly set the stage for the Taliban's return. intel people out first, a move so counterproductive to military strategy...know that Obama's hand is all over this as well. But the most grievous of all Biden's mistakes is our belief that it was Obama himself who instructed him to tell the Americans and their Afghan allies to get to Kabul's airport, their only real means of escape. And by their doing so we are now faced with thousands of folks herded together in what could be an American and Afghan bloodbath occurring on, just before, or soon thereafter Biden's announced August 31st pullout date...a date the Taliban insisted not be extended or else consequences would be paid.
In fact, a Taliban spokesman did state that, "If the US or UK were to seek additional time to continue evacuations - the answer is no...Or there would be consequences," adding that if Biden tries to maintain a presence to secure and operate the Kabul airport beyond August 31st, such a move "will create mistrust between us...If they are intent on continuing the occupation it will provoke a reaction."
And so the Taliban's "red line" was drawn, and with the 20th anniversary of 9/11 less than two weeks away, the Taliban, ISIS, or even al-Qaeda could now actually be planning a terrorist attack on the airport as their way of reminding us and the world that it was they who changed then and continue to change now America forever.
But as we write this the airlift out of Kabul continues on but to a lesser degree as armed Taliban fighters have circled the airport and are blocking its points of both entry and departure. So what did Biden in regards to this newest development do but reference the "Civil Reserve Air Fleet Program"...a program initiated during the Berlin airlift of decades ago...an airlift that can, if used right, be an adjunct to our military’s capabilities during a crises. And in his effort to make it seem like he's in charge, Biden requested that 18 aircraft from U.S. commercial carriers be used not to assist in helping to get trapped American out of the country, but to transport already safe Afghan refugees to their final points of destination what with their having already been safely evacuated from Kabul itself. Putting Afghans before Americans safety...Biden has again let Obama pull his strings.
And with his also having pledged on national television to bring all Americans home...that is "Americans who want to evacuate"...Biden's words not ours...words spoken even after Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby stated that the State Department, "didn’t know how many Americans were still trapped in Afghanistan" or whether those Americans would be able to get out. And with his adding that the U.S. military is not "equipped and able" to help those Americans trapped inside their homes, Biden has tried via word semantics to create for himself a way out of his taking responsibility for any Americans left behind and killed.
In fact, it's word semantics of the very worst kind for with the White House continuing to refer to those Americans still trapped in Afghanistan as being "stranded."..."stranded" is far from the truth for what they are is Americans being abandoned by the very government whose duty it is to protect them. Now a fundamental betrayal of the very basis of this constitutional republic as the president's duty is to protect the "health, safety, and welfare" of the American people no matter where they may be. And with Biden pulling our troops out before all Americans have been brought to safety he has actually violated both the Constitution and his oath of office. Grounds for removal from office we'd say.
And so as collateral damage Americans will be left behind as Biden has caved to the Taliban when he announced this past Tuesday, that he will not extend the August 31st deadline to remove all American troops from Afghanistan, and added that American troops had to start leaving on Friday, August 27th in order to meet the end of the month deadline. And this decision came after a final meeting between Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and CIA Director William Burns in Kabul. The inept vs. the barbarian but notice the deadline's wording concerns "American troops" and makes no mention of American civilians not connected to the military. And it's here where Biden's own people are finally admitting that not all Americans will make it out, even the infamous Adam Schiff recently stated that he believes it’s "very unlikely" that we will get every American out of Afghanistan by the end of the month.
But really how could we as Biden in his ineptness has put American troops...who can at least defend themselves...ahead of probably unarmed American civilians in the rush to get out. And like lambs to the slaughter they will all go.
And not to be overlooked is that in our haste to evacuate as many people as we can, and with concrete barriers now ringing Kabul's airport, making it near impossible for those truly seeking to escape to get past the crushing crowds, the Taliban checkpoints, let alone circumnavigate U.S. bureaucracy slowdowns regarding Afghans securing needed visas, how do we know that besides Americans carrying U.S. passports who we are getting out. We don't and for all we know Taliban, ISIS, and al-Qaeda "sleeper operatives" could be amongst those who were able to get on previous flight's out.
In fact, a recent Associated Press report stated that besides the airlift, U.S. military helicopters flew into Kabul two Friday's ago to "scoop up would-be evacuees," whomever they might be. Claiming that 16,000 people...some Americans but mostly Afghans...were airlifted out of the Kabul area in a mere 24 hours by our C-17s transport planes, know that number seems quite impossible. And why...because said rescue would mean that we had to fly in an average of two C-17s in and out of Kabul airport, getting them refueled and loaded with people, every hour on the hour with no interference by the Taliban, a scenario not likely to have happened. And again, if true, who exactly was rescued, as the number of Americans reportedly still trapped in Afghanistan seems not to have gone down in number while the number of Afghans supposedly boarding those planes is more than the actual number of Afghans who aided the U.S.
And here is something else to be concerned about that Biden is not telling us, and it's coming from sources in Panjshir...the only province in Afghanistan not under Taliban control but now surrounded by Taliban fighters. According to the resistance leaders in Panjshir, a local affiliate of ISIS is indeed considering targeting the crowds gathered both outside and in Kabul's airport with suicide bombers and/or firing missiles at U.S. and other aircraft still taking off and landing. And while our military planes, in an effort not to be hit by rocket fire, have been seen executing dangerous "corkscrew landings" at times over Kabul, other of our aircraft have also been firing flares upon takeoff and landing in an effort to avoid Taliban missile attacks. And this means that the musings out of Panjshir coupled with the Taliban's warning are something to be taken very seriously.
And why...simply because ISIS...which we know is in Afghanistan and which Obama helped to create...would love nothing better than to kill innocent Americans huddled together in the target rich Kabul airport...something the Taliban would do little to nothing to prevent. And in return ISIS would secure within Afghanistan a needed base of operation to work from in their quest to secure the Levant...while gladly leaving the Taliban sole control over Afghanistan itself.
So two questions still remain. First, how do we get our remaining people out of harms way when we have a president being controlled by Barack HUSSEIN Obama... a man who cares little about how many Americans are killed in the process...because why else would Biden, surely on Obama's say so, have ordered the evacuation and shutdown of Bagram Air Base, a base which has more runways than Kabul's Hamid Karzai International Airport, and the very base that has long been the central point of American operations in Afghanistan. Why else indeed other than to assure that not only will there be massive collateral damage in the end, but to assure the Taliban that America leaves Afghanistan in defeat as did the Russians before them. Remember, while Obama's loyalties to his muslim brethren are worn on his sleeve, Joe Biden, deep in the throws of dementia, is only capable of doing what he's being told to do.
And second, how do we save Afghanistan herself at the same time that we're being forced to leave...simply by making our leaving loud enough for the whole world to hear...as in bombing every Taliban, al-Qaeda, and ISIS nest we can find...as we should have done right from the beginning...and let the true Afghan government and what's left of its military take care of the clean-up. And then once that's done we should start entertaining the idea of a military tribunal looking into the fact that both America's current and former commander-in-chief sold both our military and our country out by arranging us to leave in defeat from a country that if it had been handled right from the beginning...as in with hands untied from our military's back...would now, in our opinion, be free.
