Pentagon, DOD Suddenly Realize They Left People Behind

Evacuation

Almost three months after the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Pentagon has come to the realization that Americans left behind need to get out. According to NBC News, “The Pentagon is stepping up efforts to get family members of U.S. troops out of Afghanistan, creating a database of the dozens who are trapped there.”

Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl is asking military personnel and Defense Department civilians with immediate family members who remain in Afghanistan but want to leave to email his office. The email must include names along with “passport, contact and other personal information about the members so they can be added to the database.” The security of this database should come into question, especially when in August news that the biometrics system with our Afghan allies’ information fell into the hands of the Taliban. 

Still, with all of the identifiable information, how are these family members going to be rescued? NBC News reports, “The Pentagon does not have a good accounting of how many DOD civilians still have immediate family members in Afghanistan.” Also, according to one official, “The U.S. military will not have a role in actually getting the people out of the country.” 

Since the withdrawal took place, private citizens have come together to try to evacuate the friends, families and allies that the Biden administration left behind. The Biden administration has even been called out for taking credit for some of these successful missions in which they not only did not assist but actually tried to stop.  

NBC News writes, “A defense official said the memo shows ‘a more deliberate effort at the DOD level’ to keep track of how many people are impacted. The official said there is real momentum to help get immediate family members out. ‘There is an increased desire to make sure that as we make this push that we have every situation accounted for,’ the official said, adding that they are trying to ‘expand the reach’ to make sure DOD personnel and their families are getting help.”

Where was this sense of urgency two and half months ago when these family members first went into hiding? Why wasn’t there a “deliberate effort” with “real momentum” and an “increased desire” to immediately help rescue those we left behind? Adding names to a database now, after the completed withdrawal, is unproductive especially since the U.S. military will have no role in evacuating the family members left in Afghanistan.

    Translation: DOD: “We’ve been focused on identifying white supremists in the military. You can’t expect us to be watching out for our people too.”

‘THE ENEMY IS HERE’: Sara Reacts to Biden Backstabbing Bibi and the ‘Death to America’ Chants in Michigan [LISTEN]

Former gubernatorial candidate for Michigan Tudor Dixon and Fox News investigative journalist Sara Carter joined The Sean Hannity Show on Wednesday to discuss the anti-American chants in Dearborn, MI that called for “Death to America.”

Watch the clip below. Listen to Dixon and Carter’s analysis above.

Hannity starts the segment by blasting President Biden for abandoning Israel in its war to eliminate terrorist group Hamas in the wake of the October 7th attacks.

“We now have a radicalized, extreme-leftist party that is demanding that Joe Biden abandon our ally in their war against terrorists! Hamas is a terror organization. They have in their charter the call for the destruction of Israel. And Joe Biden, for a long time now, has been putting pressure on Netanyahu to stop its war on terrorism which puts the entire country of Israel in jeopardy,” Hannity said.

Hannity asks Carter to react to all the knives Bibi has gotten in the back.

“I spent over an hour with Prime Minister Netanyahu … [he] talked about the situation in Israel with the United States and especially the fact that the Biden Administration has been working diligently to undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu in his time of need,” Carter said. “He’s very adamant that they’re going to go into Rafa to [clear out Hamas].”

“The importance of this to the American public is this isn’t about a fight overseas. This is about a fight for the United States of America. The frontline against terrorism is our ally in the Middle East — Israel. Once we turn our back on Israel … it’s going to be our defeat,” Carter says.

“All you have to do is look at what’s happening in the United States and see how people are being radicalized here in this country. There’s antisemitism that is growing. There’s radicalization inside Dearborn, Michigan. And you see people marching in the streets shouting ‘intifada! intifada!'”

“They want the destruction and the elimination of Israel.”
