“U.S. officials said Tuesday that the military would have to start pulling out of Afghanistan starting this Friday in order to meet President Biden’s Aug. 31 deadline agreed to by the Taliban.” foxnews
Comment: Up until now Joe is unwavering in his “resolve” to stick to the 31 August deadline to have ALL persons to be evacuated out of the country. The logistics of removing the protective force require that the withdrawal begin by 27 August (Friday).
It is generally thought by people I know that the US Government does not know how many people in Kabul have an expectation and right to evacuation. The Taliban, under the direction of a former mujahid named haqqani are turning a lot of people away from entry to the airport. It is NOT thought by people I know that the evacuation goal can be met under these circumstances in the time allotted.
Joe wants to be quickly gone from Afghanistan forever so that he and his bosses can get on with the business of their soft coup against the US constitution.
He is under a lot of pressure from both left and right. He wants to leave, but sentiment against abandonment is growing. The foxnews images of partying Democrat nabobs are accelerating that process.
Will the jihadis fight to expel us from the airport? We will see. pl
