An American mother currently employed by the American government in Kabul says her family is trapped in the city. While the White House has reportedly sent detailed instructions via email and text, according to this mother they’re too risky to follow through. Fox News shared her story on Fox and Friends Tuesday.

 “We are stranded at home. We can’t get to the airport,” she said on a phone call. “When we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives.”

Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki insists that there aren’t any stranded Americans. A reporter asked her about stranded Americans during a press briefing Monday.

“First of all, I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded,” Psaki responded. “They are not.” 

Instead, Psaki insisted that their communication strategy is helping get Americans out. “We are committed to bringing Americans, who want to come home, home,” Psaki said. “We are in touch with them via phone, via text, via e-mail, via any way that we can possibly reach Americans to get them home if they want to return home.”

Yet this American mother claims that there have been instances of miscommunication. “For four days, three, four days, we didn’t hear anything from anywhere,” she said. “And then they’re saying to go to the airport, but we’re not being clear guidance. They are saying one thing, and then the next thing, they come and say something else, so you really exactly don’t know what to do. There is a lot of miscommunication going on. You know, your emails are getting ignored.”

A text from the White House isn’t enough to help this family. “I am afraid for my life that I don’t know, you know, how things are going to go,” the mother said. “But I really need — I really need our president to really, really consider this serious. We are in danger. We are in danger, Mr. President, please, help us.”

Taliban threatens to send 2,000 suicide bombers to DC

The Biden administration has done everything in its power to take focus off of the deadly botched withdrawal from Afghanistan which left the Taliban terror group to retake control. New information is surfacing on just howmuch control the Taliban has been able to hold over Biden and his administration.

Just in December, the Taliban reportedly “told the United States during talks in Doha that if the U.S. insisted on deploying 2,000 American troops at its embassy in Kabul, the Taliban would also deploy as part of any bilateral arrangement 2,000 ‘fidayeen mujahideen [i.e., suicide bombers]’ at the Afghan Embassy in Washington D.C.” reports the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a watchdog group that tracks jihadi communications and media reports.

The Taliban is making it very clear it does not want any American presence in Afghanistan. Additionally the Taliban made it very clear suicide bombers will be part of their special forces in the Afghan National Army under the defense ministry.

In an interview that occurred in the first week of January 2022, Zabihullah Mujahid, a veteran terrorist and leader in the Taliban government, told a Pashtu-language radio station “Our mujahideen in the Ishtishhadi Kandaks [martyrdom-seeking battalions] will be part of the army and [they] will be Special Forces and organized under the defense ministry,” according to MEMRI. “The Special Forces will be established in a specific number and used for special operations.”

MEMRI also reported that in July of 2021, Mujahid said in an interview with ToloNews that the Taliban has no obligation under the Doha agreement of 2020 to sever ties with Al-Qaeda because the groups is part of the Islamic faith.
