White House To Afghan Who Helped Rescue Biden In 2008: “Thank You” And Psaki Deflections

Well, this is pretty much what the Biden admin and State Dept have been saying for days, namely, that these people are mostly on their own

White House thanks interpreter in hiding who helped rescue Biden in 2008 and commits to evacuating Afghan partners

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday praised the Afghan interpreter in hiding who helped rescue then-Sen. Joe Biden during a 2008 rescue mission as she reaffirmed the US’ commitment to helping Afghan allies.

“Our message to him is: Thank you for fighting by our side for the last 20 years. Thank you for the role you played in helping a number of my favorite people out of a snowstorm and for all the work you did. And our commitment is enduring, not just to American citizens but to our Afghan partners who have fought by our side,” Psaki said.

“And our efforts and our focus right now is, as you’ve heard Gen. McKenzie say and others say over the last 24 hours, is to the diplomatic phase. We will get you out. We will honor your service. And we’re committed to doing exactly that.”

The interpreter, who is going only by his first name, Mohammed, told the Wall Street Journal that he is asking the President to “save me and my family” after US forces allowed him to enter Kabul’s airport during their evacuation mission but restricted his wife and children. (snip)

The Journal reported that Mohammed has had his Special Immigrant Visa stuck in processing. The program is meant to provide a pathway to the United States for Afghans who were employed by or worked on behalf of the US government, but many have had trouble navigating the program’s process amid the US’ frantic scramble to evacuate.

That’s a lot of gobbledegook from Psaki, exactly what we’d expect. What, exactly, is the U.S. to do? We have no military left in Afghanistan: Joe pulled them out before we could get everyone out. He set the conditions for the quick and total takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban. This could have gone different

Biden TURNED DOWN Taliban offer to let America secure all of Kabul after President Ashraf Ghani fled country, report claims

The Biden administration refused an offer by the Taliban’s co-founder to take control of the security across all of Kabul before the chaotic evacuation because the president was determined to keep his promise to pull US troops out, according to a report.

Senior US military officials including Gen. Kenneth McKenzie hastily met face-to-face with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban’s military wing, who made the US a weighty offer, as reported by the Washington Post.  

‘We have a problem,’ Baradar said, according to a US official.  ‘We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.’

But Biden was determined to keep his promise of a full withdrawal, even with the collapse of the Afghan government. So, McKenzie and other military officials said the US only needed control of the airport until Aug. 31 and the Taliban could secure the city.

So now we’re supposed to do diplomacy with the Islamic extremists in the Taliban? Everyone is now a hostage. Will this require pallets of cash? Removing sanctions? Teaching them how to use the $65 billion in military gear left behind? How do these people get out? How do you negotiate with these brutal extremists? There are 24 California students still stuck in Afghanistan.

And for those saying Biden’s surrender was a victory, that he “deserves credit, not blame

(UK Daily Mail) President Joe Biden wanted the now-departed Afghan president to create the ‘perception’ that his government was capable of holding off the Taliban – an indication he knew it was only a matter of time before the US ally fell to the Islamic group even while reassuring Americans at home that it would not happen.

In the last phone call between Biden and his Afghan then-counterpart Ashraf Ghani, the American president said they needed to change perceptions of the Taliban’s rapid advance ‘whether it is true or not,’ according to excerpts published on Tuesday.

The call took place on July 23 – weeks before the fall of Kabul – but Biden on Tuesday repeated his assertion that his team was caught flat-footed by the rapid Taliban takeover of the country.

Four weeks before Kabul collapsed, Ghani pleaded for more air support and money for soldiers who had not had a pay rise in a decade.

A transcript obtained by Reuters from an anonymous source reveals two leaders oblivious to the impending disaster and an American president focused on spinning the message.

‘I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,’ Biden said.

‘And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.’

Joe knew it was a disaster, but, was more focused on spin.

    Every word the demofascist spew are lies. From Wuhan to Kandahar to the fake inflation numbers to the bullshit “insurrection” All. Fukin. Lies. Elwood should be ashamed to be associated with such an evil malevolent party of liars. I spit on all of them. Ptuee!

    ” On Tuesday, Reuters obtained leaked transcripts of Biden’s final call with Ashraf Ghani – the recently departed president of Afghanistan – before the Taliban completed their overthrow of the country.

    During the call on July 23rd, Ghani communicated how serious the situation was, saying the country was undergoing an assault from a “full- scale invasion” of about “10,000-15,000 international terrorists.” He also explained that the Taliban had full logistical support and planning, courtesy of Pakistan.

    Biden paid no attention, he pressured the then-president to create a “perception” that the Taliban hadn’t been advancing at such a rapid pace, “whether its true or not.”
