U.S. Races To Evacuate Thousands From Afghanistan

  1. WAS THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY TOTALLY ASLEEP WHEN THE TALIBAN STARTED TAKING OVER EVERY PROVINCE AS ALL THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT AT LEAST A WEEK AGO!!!

    1. @ZoomerX24 I wonder why Chinese people are mandated to wear masks and take vaccines? Other than being communist. Probably cuz they need their military in top physical condition to man all those new ships. No one can be spreading disease.

    2. What, are you deaf? The Intel community WAS WARNING THE HEAD MORON AND HIS FLYING CIRCUS CLOWNS FOR MONTHS!!

    3. The Taliban are holding Press Conferences and Taking all Questions.
      That being said.
      Why ISN’T Our President Joe Biden?
      “I AM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
      THE BUCK STOP’S WITH ME!”

    4. @Rebel W.A.C. if only 3,000 US soldiers kept the taliban from taking over than I think we should’ve stayed.

  2. This is so dumb.
    The problem isn’t getting out, the problem was getting in.
    Everyone knew this.
    Like most wars, the lies happen during the war, about the real situation on the ground.
    Feed the machine-

    1. You can exit without the the loss of life and putting my brother in arms at risk, along with all of our countrymen.

  3. My father was in the Korean conflict and our “government” wouldn’t even honor their promise to help pay for my mother’s long term care. They denied my application. So business as usual

  4. The blame game might as well include the apathetic complacent American public which permitted the government to wage 20 years of war in Afghanistan !!!

    1. If you think the national reaction to Biden’s Afghanistan is bad… wait until the public realizes he did not win Arizona.

    2. @Deborah Freedman oh sorry I guess you didn’t know we have another president now, because he is too busy shuffling away from the press and taking naps.

    1. Maybe because they already lost many soldiers? Maybe because they weren’t paid? Maybe because their leader up and left with all the money? They were deserted.

    2. @Yanski Arbuckle putting a piece of paper on your face does nothing. Stop the spread by not allowing people with not only COVID but other dieases also illegally into our borders.

    3. They ran because they didn’t even have bullets or enough food because of the corrupt government. The Taliban offered them cash to put down their weapons.

    4. Ask yourself, why did they fight for 20 years and lose tens of thousands of lives then just stop fighting? Simple. No ammo, air support, money, or supplies.

    5. @Yanski Arbuckle don’t try to provide facts about the pitfalls of big government to snowflakes. They rarely grasp the dangers until it directly affects them.
      Until then they will give up their religion, values, family, education principles, safety, gender, and any liberty that’s directed by the Party.
      Just look at every major city. Cesspools. Yet they continue to follow the Party guidelines.

    1. Trump’s Muslim ban and shutting down Obama’s Afghanistan Visa program for people who helped the USA is the reason there is resentment to the USA.

  5. The Afghan government stole with both hands then ran away. The Afghan military ran away. Yet WE are the ones being called unreliable!

  6. Saigon Airlift 2021. It’s heartbreaking to think of the helpful locals we will leave behind to be “accidental casualties” of the Taliban.

  7. It’s crazy to expect a government, that can’t buy gloves and gowns last year to look after its own citizens, to run a foreign country properly and exit from it in orderly fashion.

  8. We cannot leave them there to be slaughtered Bush already screwed so many of them after the Gulf War and they all got slaughtered,,, so come on Biden, we expected this from Trump not you*!!

    1. Biden fully supported the war. Biden’s failed exit strategy left thousands of Afghanis in peril and gave the Taliban $billions in US taxpayer funded military weapons. I expect Omar the Horrible to demand the US send advisors to teach the Taliban how to use some of the more sophisticated weaponry.

  9. Isn’t it about time that we knew specifically how many flights per day, and of what size aircraft? Why would any of that need to be kept secret?

  10. Time for Afghanistan to take responsibility for their own nation & the well-being of its ppl? no more excuses & no more babysitting

  11. Biden have washed his hands over the whole thing. Biden doesn’t even talk about it anymore. Biden is back to COVID & Shutdown talk.

  12. 0:17 15.000 us citizens are still left stranded in afghanistan. Imagine the outrage from msnbc if trump was the president. Calling Biden’s administration incompetent is an understatement.
