According to the “off-the-record” call hosted by the US Stae Department, the number is even 6 TIMES bigger than what Joe Biden reported!
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, and a spokesperson of the State Department have been insistent for weeks that the number stranded in Afghanistan is around 100 Americans.0:38/1:32
In fact, the real number is 600.
This was revealed in an “off-the-record” call that was reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
“The Biden administration is in touch with nearly 400 Americans who are stranded in Afghanistan, a figure that far exceeds the administration’s claims that about 100 Americans were left in the nation following the United States’ hurried exit from Kabul, according to a senior congressional source who was briefed Thursday by the State Department.
With Afghanistan in the administration’s rear-view mirror, U.S. officials are providing exact figures on the number of Americans who are still stranded and want to leave—although they are doing so in private, off-the-record forums—according to two senior congressional aides, who relayed the contents of the non-public call to the Washington Free Beacon.”
“The State Department further claims to have airlifted 218 U.S. citizens and 131 long-term permanent residents out of Afghanistan since Aug. 31, when senior Biden administration officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken and White House press secretary Jen Psaki, were publicly claiming that “around 100” Americans were still stuck in the nation. Psaki, for instance, said last month that only “a handful of American citizens” were trying to leave Afghanistan after the United States pulled its forces. The figures presented in Thursday’s briefing indicate the administration was citing the “around 100” talking point while privately being aware of nearly 600 Americans still inside Afghanistan.”
“We now know this administration repeatedly lied to the world about the citizens of our country it abandoned in Afghanistan,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R.-CA), whose office has assisted with evacuating Americans, told the Free Beacon. “But it did something even worse: It broke a sacred bond of trust between Americans and their government. This isn’t close to over.”
Biden’s admin was persistent in their attempts to cover up the fact that there was a huge crisis in the war-torn country.
However, in august, CNN debunked Psaki’s claims that there were no Americans stranded during the crisis that evolved in Afghanistan.
