After Biden Claims Only 100 Citizens Left In Afghanistan – His Own Pentagon Confirms There Are Still Over 400

Remember Afghanistan? Biden (and the MSM) would like nothing more than for us to forget his biggest failures. Sleepy Joe let the Taliban take over the country and scrambled to evacuate Americans and Afghans. By the end of August, he claimed he got out most of our people.

Biden and his officials said that only a few 100 Americans were left. They even implied that these stranded Americans wanted to stay (despite being unable to travel or communicate with the State Department). Now, Biden’s own Pentagon reveals many more are still there.

From Fox News:

The Pentagon stated Tuesday that nearly 450 American citizens are still in Afghanistan following August’s U.S. military withdrawal, more than the Biden administration has previously claimed…

Inhofe noted that the Biden administration “always said 100 to 200 U.S. citizens left in Afghanistan,” but now says it “has already withdrawn 234 and is in contact with 363 others, 176 of whom want to leave,” citing numbers the State Department provided last week.

Joe Biden previously claimed only about 100 Americans were left in Afghanistan after he pulled our troops before August 31st. But now, the Pentagon revealed about 450 Americans are still left behind in the Taliban-controlled land.

This comes after we’ve heard about numerous private efforts to rescue Americans. Military vets and a few lawmakers have scrambled to find those who are left behind. Often, they couldn’t fly people out, due to the State Department’s lack of support.

We shouldn’t be surprised, then, to learn many more Americans are still stuck in Afghanistan. One military vet previously said as many as one thousand people were still stranded. Some of them could have gotten out by now, but the number is still much higher than what Biden claimed.

Why did Biden give us such a wrong number? Was he just wrong? Was he lying? Biden has a long history of bending the truth to suit his own interests. From the very start of the Afghanistan crisis, he has shown a shocking lack of concern for the victims left behind.

He did very little after lives were lost during the chaotic evacuation. He vowed to punish those involved. Instead, he ordered a retaliatory drone strike then ended up killing only civilians, not the enemy. His evacuation was confused and poorly executed because it seems his administration couldn’t be bothered.

From all appearances, Biden doesn’t seem to care. He just wanted to get out of the country so he could brag about it, and downplays the cost of American lives put in danger.

But instead, it has become one of the worst stains on his presidency. And it continues to get worse.
