An Official Formerly In Charge of Afghan Security Charters a Private Plane to Get Stranded Americans Out -- and Is Told by Biden Administration Flunkies That They Must Turn Around or Be Shot Down

If it sounds too ghastly to be true, that now means it's true.

A private airplane that was flying into Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA) in Kabul, Afghanistan to rescue stranded American citizens and Afghan allies allegedly was told to turn back or they would be shot down.

In the past 24 hours, American officials in charge of giving clearance at the airport told fellow Americans they would be fired upon if they didn’t leave, Mary Beth Long, a former Department of Defense official, told American Greatness in an exclusive interview.

The plane ended up landing elsewhere in Afghanistan, she said. Now Americans are reportedly being advised to leave Kabul completely as the the Taliban is expected to start rounding people up after the last of the U.S. military leaves.

Long, who was responsible for Afghan security policy from 2005-2008, and operated a business office in Kabul from 2010-2017, has been actively involved with the rescue efforts in the country. She wrote about "The Chaos and Confusion in Kabul" eight days ago in American Greatness.

Some American citizens, she said, have made the perilous journey to HKIA four times, only to be turned away at the gates each time. As a result of the Biden Administration’s inexplicable actions, some members of the military, and other officials have "gone rogue" and taken matters into their own hands, Long said.

The article that Mary Beth Long wrote, "The Chaos and Confusion in Kabul," is worth reading.

Note that this was written before the suicide bombing.

Everyone knew it was coming.

As nearly everyone else seems to know, the situation outside the gate is pure chaos--a "kill zone" as one analyst put it. The United States has refused to play any role whatsoever in ensuring the safety of Americans and others waiting to enter. Why weren’t lanes established and secured for Americans to gain access? Why is the mob not organized into secure tracks distinguishing people with visas, priority immigrants, and others?

The Pentagon and the State Department have made no effort to organize cleared passengers or people with reserved seats so they can enter efficiently. As many videos demonstrate, the gate through which passengers must pass doesn't even have a perimeter protecting the surge of would-be refugees as thousands press forward. In fact, as of Friday, the head of the United Nations in Afghanistan did not even have direct contact with our military leaders inside the airport to coordinate an orderly response to the rising violence against people who were told just days ago to present themselves at the entrance to obtain passage out.

Incredibly, in the last 36 hours alone, our military instructed British troops who volunteered to rescue more than a dozen Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders and scores of Afghans with embassy travel visas to stand down. Our poor Marines at the gates were told they may not admit those rescued by the British, even if they hold proper U.S. documentation.

This is simply outrageous. Compare this administration's indifference to Americans stranded in Afghanistan with the vast resources--including housing and transportation--dispensed indiscriminately to illegal aliens along our southern border.
