I hope I’m wrong, but it looks more and more as if Biden’s pledge to get all Afghans who worked side-by-side with Americans in their country is out the window. They are being blocked from leaving and there’s no evidence the US can or will do anything about that.— Brit Hume (@brithume) August 24, 2021
Very depressing email just now from someone who’s been working day and night in the evacuation effort:— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) August 24, 2021
“It’s over. Retrograde has begun. Only AMCITS and green card holders will make it.
I’m calling our contacts and having some very hard conversations.”
“With President Joe Biden intending to stick to the Aug. 31 deadline for U.S. troops to leave Afghanistan, it’s becoming clear that thousands of the Afghans who helped the U.S. won’t be evacuated…” https://t.co/yQrpvKzupX— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) August 24, 2021
So Biden evacuated 70k from Afghanistan without a single American death and corporate media is still going with their hair on fire full meltdown bull shit. Stunning propaganda campaign only rivaled by the buildup to Iraq. Shame on them all.— Secular Talk? (@KyleKulinski) August 24, 2021
The evacuation is literally the most competent phase of the war, and the one that gets the worst press. And we wonder why there’s no accountability. https://t.co/WfauTI0FMb— Richard Hanania (@RichardHanania) August 23, 2021
The overwhelming reason Biden’s approval rating has dropped 10% in the past week is that US media is truly incorrigible garbage. They can revert back to 2004 mode at any time, and suddenly withdrawing from a war that supermajorities wanted over is a massive, debilitating scandal— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) August 24, 2021

insane comment from a GOP Hill leader just now, flying in the face of all facts: “Because if you give people a taste of freedom — which we’ve done— they’re not going to give up their freedom. For many Afghans today, they only know freedom.”— curtmills (@CurtMills) August 24, 2021
powerful 2004 energy
Britain took the second-greatest number of NATO casualties fighting by our side in Afghanistan. We’re treating those who bled with us and for us utterly shamefully. https://t.co/PLs509Iqx5— David French (@DavidAFrench) August 24, 2021
This is exactly why it is not in America’s national interests (and hasn’t been for 20 years) to abandon Afghanistan to jihadist control. https://t.co/u7gPsMVwO4— David French (@DavidAFrench) August 23, 2021
There should be fury and disgust, and not just at CIA, Pentagon, and in Congress. https://t.co/HpGLbOW8ET— David French (@DavidAFrench) August 24, 2021
One thing we can be sure of is that these Afghans, who risked their lives to help us or stand with us in various ways, are far better and far brighter and have done far more for America than Donald J.

Joe Biden: I’ve got good news.
The withdrawal from Afghanistan is running ahead of schedule and we should be wrapped up by August 31. The Taliban has issued a blanket amnesty. Afghan refugees don’t have to come here.
The Media: This is the worst thing that has ever happened!
