President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan turned deadly on Thursday when terrorists struck at the overwhelmed airport in Kabul, detonating two suicide bombs that killed more than 100 people, including 13 U.S. service members.
The blasts which went off outside of Hamid Karzai International Airport were able to inflict maximum damage largely due to the densely packed crowd which has continued to grow as a result of the rushed, disorganized evacuation after the capital city was overrun by the Taliban, catching the best and the brightest in the Biden administration completely off guard.
While the attacks were blamed on a variant of the resurgent ISIS, there is distrust in the Taliban who now control the war-ravaged country, and to make matters worse, a shocking report has emerged that a list of names of American citizens and Afghan allies was inexplicably provided to the Islamic extremist regime, ostensibly to help them to safety but such a list could be easily abused to identify and target enemies.
The existence of the list which was first reported by Politico came up during a classified briefing on Capitol Hill this week “which turned contentious after top Biden administration officials defended their close coordination with the Taliban. Biden officials contended that it was the best way to keep Americans and Afghans safe and prevent a shooting war between Taliban fighters and the thousands of U.S. troops stationed at the airport,” according to the report.
Politico quotes one unnamed defense official as saying, “basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list,” a detail that seems to have escaped the geniuses who have aided Biden with the engineering of the greatest foreign policy catastrophe in recent U.S. history. “It’s just appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean.” added the official.
When Biden finally emerged for a late afternoon press conference after the carnage, he did not deny the existence of such a list when asked by a reporter.
According to the commander in chief, “There have been occasions when our military has contacted their military counterparts in the Taliban and said this, for example, this bus is coming through with X number of people on it, made up of the following group of people. We want you to let that bus or that group through,” he said. “So, yes there have been occasions like that. To the best of my knowledge, in those cases, the bulk of that has occurred and they have been let through.”
“I can’t tell you with any certitude that there’s actually been a list of names,” Biden added. “There may have been. But I know of no circumstance. It doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist, that here’s the names of 12 people, they’re coming, let them through. It could very well have happened.”
Criticism of the “kill list” exploded across Twitter as outrage mounted over the American heroes who will be coming home in flag-draped caskets as a result of the miserable failures of Biden and his administration.
The Biden administration gave the Taliban a list of Americans and our allies still in country!!!
I literally cannot fathom the level of incompetence that we are seeing from our leaders it’s absolutely disgusting. #Treason

Every time you think it can’t get worse, it does. Read the whole thread — Joe Biden’s team essentially handed the Taliban a hit list and crossed their fingers. Staggering. Absolutely staggering. https://t.co/vmjTftY9iM

U.S. officials leaned into the Taliban for safety by handing them lists of Americans and Afghans that were evacuating.
Let me repeat: U.S. officials entrusted the Taliban with a kill list of Americans and Afghans.

Did the Biden Regime really just hand the Taliban a kill list to be paired with our military equipment? https://t.co/m0dtYTbg14

Biden said “there may have been” a list with names of U.S. citizens and our allies that his administration shared with the Taliban.
If this list exists, it’s akin to giving terrorists a kill list.

The Biden doctrine: We don't trust the Taliban so we gave them a list of Americans who they hopefully won't kill.

Taliban: going house to house looking for Americans or anyone who worked with American to kill them.
Biden Admin: : gave the Taliban a list of names of U.S. citizens, green card holders & Afghan allies to grant entry into the outer perimeter of the city’s airport.

So America walks away from Afghanistan, hands over a 'kill list' to the Taliban and then wonders why they are emboldened and have started terror attacks again.
Is @JoeBiden on crack?!

Such a list will likely spell doom for those who will soon be abandoned by the administration which has been given a deadline of August 31st to complete the evacuation and leave the country, stranding American citizens and Afghans behind enemy lines where they will face a cruel and uncertain fate.
Thanks to Biden, the terrorists are back in business in Afghanistan and the body count is only going to continue to grow with the message of weakness that emanates from the White House.
