Biden's National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan: Don't Even Worry About It, the Taliban Has Promised They'd Provide Safe Passage to Those Fleeing the Country

The 1 pm remarks by President Biden on Afghanistan are not happening at 1... No new time announced by White House.

I guess Biden's brain needs a defibrilation.

I'm so glad we're finally permitted to discuss the dementia that was obvious long before the election.

280 Newsmax saying the news conference being delayed because news broke about the delay in evacuation flights. as reporters were gathering for the remarks.
So Joe was gonna go out there and lie and say the evacuation flights were working and news came out they weren't and he cancelled/delayed? Posted by: It's me donna

Note: It looks like I jumped the gun saying the speech was "cancelled." Should have said "delayed without explanation."

Back to original post.

Hey NeverTrump, are you liking the Taliban's nice tweets?

The Taliban has told the United States it will provide safe passage for civilians to reach the airport in Afghanistan's capital Kabul, U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Tuesday.

Sullivan also told a White House news briefing that the United States believes the Kabul evacuation can go until Aug. 31 and it is talking to the Taliban about the exact timetable. The United States and Western allies have been scrambling to evacuate diplomats and civilians after Taliban forces swept back into power, with thousands of Americans still in the country.

Thousands of U.S. troops have been flown into Kabul to assist in evacuation efforts after the collapse of Afghanistan's military and government following swift advances by Taliban forces.

"The Taliban have informed us that they are prepared to provide the safe passage of civilians to the airport, and we intend to hold them to that commitment," Sullivan said.

Well the Tolley-bohn made a promise, and their name is all sorts of fun to say, so we can take that to the bank!


And then: the Tolley-bohn began whipping women and children with chains.

Images of the Taliban cracking down on a protest and bloodied women and children beaten by fighters are contradicting the more moderate image the militant group has been trying to project as it tries to consolidate power in Afghanistan.

In no universe were they attempting a "more moderate image," you stupid shits.

That's your fantasy.


Meanwhile, the Taliban's assurance of a "safe passage" to the Kabul airport, where thousands have thronged in a desperate bid to be taken out of the country, has also been undermined by a report and photographs by a Los Angeles Times journalist.

In one of the graphic images, a woman and a child are seen with blood on their faces, apparently unconscious.

Hundreds of people were outside the airport Wednesday, The Associated Press reported. It said the Taliban demanded to see documents before they allowed the rare passenger inside. The Taliban fired occasional warning shots to disperse them, the agency said.

Meanwhile, The Guardian reported that the militants were checking documents and forcibly turning some people around at checkpoints, refusing to let them reach the airport. NBC News was not able to independently verify the reports.

The Tolley-bohn claims, along with Joy-Ann Reid and Carlos "Anthony Weiner" Danger, that they've been #Hacked!

The reports contrast with a new, more modern image that the Taliban tried to paint in their first news conference since their takeover of Kabul on Tuesday night. Their officials deny that their fighters have been involved in the violence, blaming the injuries on men impersonating the Taliban.

Looks like the neocons have backed the right horse yet again.
