    1. @TooBadThatDidn’tKillMe NO , WE JUST CALL BIDEN THE CAUSE OF THEIR DEATHS BECAUSE IT IS, HE IS IN CHARGE NOW , ORANGE MAN BYE BYE LOSER.

    2. @mike brigs So it’s Biden’s fault that Nazi Chihuahua Stephen Miller blocked the Afghan visas for years to Preserve The White Homeland? Oh wait, you _actually_ believe that.

    3. It would be very lovely if those children were given to the marine who worked so hard to get them out. Of course there maybe extended family there who would raise them in the custom of their homeland.

    4. Every single person who voted for Joe Biden knowing full well he has a mental illness, but just wanted Trump out, has the blood of countless thousands of Americans and Afgani allies in their hands.

    5. @pdfico , it seems to me, Biden proved he has NO MENTAL ILLNESS. He set out to do an Herculean task because of the conditions Trump left.. oh yes, created extreme problems with the VISAs promised to the Afghan translators as well as the Afghans thatd worked in the embassy. And beyond that, IT WAS HE WHOD FREED THE ISIS K prisoners that claimed so many last Thursday and kept trying every day after that but met drone bombs on their way. The ISIS K tried to shoot missiles into airport today but didnt manage to get them there and faced a group of Taliban fighters as well.
      Listening to Biden speak nearly every day after getting little sleep, dealing with Afghanistan hours which are our night hours and Haiti hours and Midwestern time for the hurricanes plus still working to keep the hospitals from collapsing due to the Covid delta . And you have the gall to call him mentally I’ll?
      Maybe you might look in the mirror to see the difference. Or hunt up old news reports from the he past 4 years. That might clue you in.

    1. Every single person who voted for Joe Biden knowing full well he has a mental illness, but just wanted Trump out, has the blood of countless thousands of Americans and Afgani allies in their hands.

    2. Yes, you are so sad you troll. You should vandalize some discussion pages to show how sad and heartbroken you are troll. Boo hoo. Sad, heartbroken troll pretending to care.

    3. Yall not sorry that yall vote for some who killed these people not isis group okay yall wait and see

  1. I my name is Joe too I think Joe the guy wit my name is doin a good job thank you Joe Biden u’re great and MSNBC and CNN are the best news

    1. Seriously you don’t understand that this didn’t have to happen this way? This is because of your great Biden

  2. The failure of the bureaucratic mess of the process is disgusting..i hope those boys have a bright future and dont blame America for thier parents demise

  3. After all, in this whole Afghan war story, the best of all, with the biggest heart, are the American soldiers themselves. They are the best guys in the world. I am very proud of each of them.

    1. That’s actually a good point. I’m open to learning but I do get frustrated with the divisiveness. I fear that will be our country’s downfall

  4. MSNBC. remind everyone that Steven Miller prevented veterans and state dept from giving Afganis visas

  5. Sorry for your loss sir. I can’t believe how badly we have failed our citizens and allies in this situation!
