Americans KIA. Biden MIA.

I can’t express how angry I am.

Ten US servicemembers were killed in a series of suicide bomb attacks on Kabul airport on Thursday, the first American lives to be lost since Biden’s disastrous evacuation effort began on August 14.


The President has not commented publicly on the deaths and he is not scheduled to make any kind of statement or speech on Thursday.


Pentagon spokesman John Kirby released a statement saying a ‘number’ had died, but he wouldn’t give any additional details. Other troops are feared to have been injured.


Biden’s meetings were canceled on Thursday immediately after the attack while he spoke with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.


Neither the President or anyone in the administration has offered a plan for getting out the remaining troops and civilians before August 31, the Taliban’s deadline.

Norway, Poland, Holland and Canada have all stopped evacuating citizens. In a statement on Thursday afternoon, Norway’s Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soereide said the doors at the airport are ‘closed’.


The State Department is telling Americans stuck in Afghanistan to stay in their homes, while Britain has told its stranded citizens to make a run for the Pakistan border, along with thousands of Afghan refugees.

    Completely on Senile Joe.
    Remember, the buck stops with him.
    The final days have been a diaster and today proves.
    Yes, let’s trust the Taliban, Senile Joe says. We can negotiate with the Taliban, Truck Driver Joe says.
    Time to impeach the asshole.

    The State Department wants Americans to stay in their homes. Why? Because their executions are considerably less likely to be publicized if they’re slaughtered in relative anonymity, that’s why.

    I felt the same way when Trump abandoned Syria , evacuated zero of our Kurdish friends and turned over our military bases to Russia .

    The idea that Trump wouldn’t have experienced the same issues is more fantasy
    from the cult members

    MHMaley, nice try but just plain stupid.
    But you are just stupid enough to bring up President Trump but cannot defend Senile Joe or Ho Kamala.
    Just pathetic.

    Dang…I figured MM was as senile as Biden….Wait….never mind.

    Some Biden puddin’ head has leaked that the CIA has been running covert rescue operations throughout Afghanistan, no doubt in a self-serving attempt to portray the Biden Admin as something more than their true incompetent and malevolent selves. If the Taliban and their ISIS cousins watch CNN and MSNBC then they now know it too. These dumbasses can’t get out of their own way.

    Reporter to Jen Psaski:
    If we cannot trust you with the the little news, how can we trust you with the big news.
    Psaski: Blank dumb stare and next question.
    For instance, the numbers of evacuees from Afghanistan.
    Who is vetting those numbers? Who is independently cooperating this numbers.
    Considering how much blow back from the 2 congressmen who we there and the deep state panicked, my hunch is that those numbers from the government are way off.

    Maley refers to the turmoil created by Obozo, Clinton, Kerry, and Panetta in Syria when Obozo & Co. were in love with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Surprise!! The Muslim Brotherhood is back, and coming to Afghanistan courtesy of Qatar, another Friend of Obozo.

    Maley conveniently forgets that the Kurds were and are under attack from Turkey, which is–on paper, anyway–a NATO ally of the USA. Trump understood that. Obozo only cared for radical Moslems, and Biden……….he only cares for his nightly pudding and morning oatmeal.

    The above tends to affirm the Obozo influence in the foreign-affairs direction of the Biden* Government: favor Muslims and Red China, dis-favor the United States and any country wary of Muslim incursion–such as Hungary.

    India is the next target for that bunch, and I mean ‘target.’

    So, Truck Driver Joe wants to show how macho he is and takes out 2 goats in the middle of the desert a couple hundred miles. He then named the goats as Planner and Facilitator.
    It might sound outrageous but is it any different than all the lies Senile Joe, the defense chiefs, the state department lies?

    “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up,”
    President Sparklefart.
    Well he fucked things up.
    And you will be hard pressed to find a liberal to support him right now, even most in the media.
    But Senile Joe has a wild card. Ho Kamala, who no one likes.

  12. Merlin

    Latest news on Biden’s PR drone strike in Kabul shows the target was a minivan full of kids. Spin that story, Jen.

    …and the Taliban are hanging people from Blackhawks.
