Coordinated White House/Media Allies Line: Any Americans Left Behind Choose to Be Left Behind, And Whatever Happens To Them, It's Their Fault

"Don't underestimate Joe's ability to fvck things up."

-- Barack Obama, who should know a thing or two about f***ing things up.

The White House's spokespig Jen Psaki has all but admitted that they're planning on leaving some Americans behind.

"Our commitment continues to be to U.S. citizens: If they want to leave, we will help get them out," Psaki responded.

When asked if that means the administration will act beyond the Aug. 31 deadline, Psaki admitted the White House believes some Americans will be stranded.

"Again, we expect there could be some, but I don't -- I'm not going to get into it further," she said.

Note how she puts that -- "if they want to leave."

The two Congressmen who traveled to Kabul -- one Democrat, one Republican -- are agreed that there is no way to get all Americans out of Afghanistan by August 31 -- or even by September 11.

"We came into this visit wanting, like most veterans, to push the president to extend the August 31st deadline. After talking with commanders on the ground and seeing the situation here, it is obvious that because we started the evacuation so late, that no matter what we do, we won't get everyone out on time, even by September 11," Moulton explained. "Sadly and frustratingly, getting our people out depends on maintaining the current, bizarre relationship with the Taliban."

And the odds of getting those Americans out fell even further when the State Department -- having realized that there was a "security threat" at the airport, which we indeed saw come to bloody fruition today -- told Americans to stay away from the airport.

How are they going to get airlifted out of the airport if they're not at the airport?

Several European nations announced on Thursday that they were halting their evacuations from the Kabul airport after reports a day earlier of a security threat at the airport, as the window for airlifts appeared to be closing, days before the deadline for the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark all said that they would no longer be able to facilitate airlifts from the Hamid Karzai International Airport, which has both civilian and military sections. The airport has been the site of chaotic scenes since the Taliban takeover of the capital earlier this month, as tens of thousands of Afghans and foreign citizens had desperately searched for a way out.

The U.S. Embassy had warned Americans on Wednesday to stay away from the airport and told anyone outside the perimeter to "leave immediately," citing unnamed security threats.

Kinda wish we had the fortified, far-from-population-centers Bagram air base still open, huh?

So the situation is this: Of the 1500 or more Americans in Afghanistan, we will certainly wind up leaving behind hostages and future beheading victims.

Many citizens of allied European nations will be left behind.

Possibly the six California high school students and their parents, who picked a bad time to trust the competency of Joe Biden and his Foreign Policy Dream Team, might not get out of Afghanistan.

And as for the 250,000 (or more) "Afghan allies" we keep hearing about...? Forget it, they'll almost all be left behind to be executed.

Which is why the Biden Administration and its media allies need to create a Narrative for the coming slaughter: any Americans who are left behind wanted to be left behind, so it's their own fault, not Biden's.


[T]he worst-case scenario is that we're seeing preemptive spin for when the Biden administration chooses to leave Americans in Afghanistan after August 31. Based on the administrationís gaslighting -- Politico's words, not just mine! -- it seems that the Biden team, having found themselves in a situation with no good options and terrified of a bigger fight with the Taliban, is prepared to claim, "we evacuated every American who wanted to get out, the ones who didnít come to the airport by August 31 clearly wanted to stay."

Speaking of setting up a Narrative -- that's from National Review, which is apparently now shifting to pretend they didn't propagandize for Biden, and didn't vote for Biden themselves.

In a grim update, four US Marines are now reported dead from the bombing.

Jen Rubin gives no F's, though. She continues spinning for Biden, and also pushing the idea that maybe those left behind just plain wanted to be murdered horribly by terrorists:

@JRubinBlogger

After 19 message and outreach through media, there might conceivably be some Americans still wanting to evacuate who have missed all those messages, not heard any of the outreach efforts or pleas to leave from fellow Americans, and not contacted the State

but are there many? logically, not

Conservative, Inc. media, everyone. Make sure you donate to them.

And maybe give some thought to this: Despite "conservatives" frequently having control of all of Congress, despite occasionally having control of the presidency, and despite sometimes having control of the Congress and the Presidency -- the left has nevertheless scored victory after victory and "conservatives" have suffered defeat after defeat on policy, to the point where we are now hunted, abused internal exiles in what was formerly our own country.

Why is that?

Is it possible that perhaps our Conservative, Inc. leaders are actually far more aligned culturally and ideologically with the left than with their own voters/supporters/readers?

And is it possible they routinely conspire to vote strategically to make sure the left wins all consequential votes on policy? And occasionally tank presidential elections?

Exit Answer: It's more than possible. That is, unquestionably, the reality of the situation.
