While Secretary of State Antony Blinken assured the nation over the weekend that the Taliban is committed to allowing safe travel outside Afghanistan, Sara Carter has the real story. She received video evidence of the Taliban violently threatening Americans attempting to leave the country. The American family in the video sent the clip directly to Rep. Mike Garcia (R-CA) who shared it with Carter. She shared the story with Steve Hilton from Fox News’ The Next Revolution on Sunday.

“They were trapped at Taliban checkpoint,” Carter said, describing the video. “They were trying to get through the checkpoint that this White House said people would be able to get through to get to the airport for evacuation.” Instead, “they had guns pointed at their faces, they were told that they were not allowed to pass through.”

“It’s horrific,” Carter went on. “I can’t tell you how many Americans are going to be left behind.” According to Carter, it will all be because of President Biden’s ineptitude.

Carter spoke to this reporter Monday, and the American family, which had two small children with them, has still not made it out of Kabul. Other Americans she, along with other civilians, government employees and a number of Congressional officials have been trying to get out of the country remain behind. Moreover, thousands of SIV approved and P2 visa applicants have also been abandoned and at the mercy of the Taliban.

This morning two top Afghan military commanders were hung in public from the top of a steeple, according to several U.S. government officials and military personnel that spoke to Carter. Carter received a picture of the incident but is not posting it due to the violent nature of the photo.

“Many people are being left behind, we are abandoning our American and Afghanis who have worked for us, all this because of Joe Biden and the ineptitude of his administration,” Carter tweeted following the show.

Meanwhile, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) among others joined Garcia in the network of advocates fighting to get people out of the country. Carter is a part of it herself. The group has been knick named the “digital Dunkirk.” The Dunkirk reference is based on an operation during World War II, where a group of 800 vessels helped rescue 338,226 allies from the Germans.

As a result, she, along with many other civilians and government officials connected by their past experiences in Afghanistan, have been working to identify those most vulnerable to retribution from the Taliban. They are working together to not only identify those left behind, but they are also seeking options so those most vulnerable can find safe passage from the war-torn region.

Good Riddance to UNRWA as it Supports Hamas

The head of UNRWA recently accused Israel of waging an “expanded, concerted campaign” to destroy the UN agency. The leader of UNRWA does have a cause for concern, as Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant stated that UNRWA has “lost legitimacy and can no longer function as a UN body.” UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer stated that “The rot is systemic, and that’s why we’re holding a conference…to replace UNRWA.” And now Congressional Republicans are probing the Biden administration’s decision to restore US funding to UNRWA in 2021, following the Trump administration’s suspension of that funding in 2018.

Good riddance to UNRWA if it ends up folding under pressure; UNRWA and the UN are Hamas apologists at best, and facilitators at worst. For example, the UN’s Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator actually insisted that “Hamas is not a terrorist group for us,” but merely a “political movement.” And the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Palestinian Territories, in a rejoinder to the French president calling the October 7 attack “the largest anti-Semitic massacre of our century,” stated that “No, Mr. Macron. The victims of [the October 7 attack] were not killed because of their Judaism, but in response to Israel’s oppression.”

UNRWA Employees Provide Material Support to Hamas, PIJ

Israeli Defense Minister Galant has named 12 specific UNRWA employees who “actively participated” in Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel, and also stated that Israel has “significant indications based on intelligence” that implicates “over 30” additional UNRWA employees. Gallant stated that of UNRWA’s 13,000 staff in Gaza, “1,468 workers are known to be active in Hamas and PIJ, 185 UNRWA workers are active in the military branches of Hamas and 51 are active in the PIJ military branch.”

Additional to those numbers are the 30 UNRWA teachers known to have celebrated the October 7 attacks on a UNRWA Telegram group that had 3,000 members.

Hamas’ “Data Center” Found Underneath UNRWA Headquarters

Israel also found a Hamas “data center” under UNRWA’s headquarters in Gaza, equipped with an electrical room, computer servers and rooms where Hamas operatives could work and sleep, and that there were power lines connecting UNRWA’s headquarters to this data center. And surprise, some of the equipment found was made in Iran and China. Interestingly, while the Hamas “data center” contained electronics, a server room in the above-ground UNRWA headquarters had most of its electronics missing, which appears to be indicative of “actions of someone who knew the army was coming and wanted to hide the evidence,” according to Col. Benny Aharon of Israel’s 401st Armored Brigade. After the head of UNRWA denied that UNRWA knew of this data center ahead of time, Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) tweeted “Oh, you knew,” and stated that Israel had warned UN officials about the data center but those officials chose to ignore those warnings.

Additional Evidence of Strong UNRWA/Hamas Partnership

Additionally, UN Watch cited instances of UNRWA/Hamas synergy, including that Israel found:

  • At the UNRWA headquarters above ground, weapons and “documents that indicated that the same offices were also used by Hamas”;
  • UNRWA aid bags in Yahya Sinwar’s bunker;
  • UNRWA concrete in Hamas’ tunnels that housed hostages;
  • Missiles and rockets under UNRWA equipment;
  • That Hamas stashed ammunition, explosives, and weapons in UNRWA bags, and that Hamas also had UN vests;
  • That Hamas stored weapons in and fired weapons from a UNRWA school; and
  • That Hamas’ “Ministry of Health” stole 24,000 gallons of fuel from UNRWA.

And to further emphasize the scope of how seriously UNRWA is compromised by Hamas, every single UNRWA “site, school, mosque, [and] kindergarten” that Israel has inspected had weapons, according to Israel’s commander of the 646th Reserve Paratroopers Brigade.

Calls to preserve UNRWA merely deflect away from the “systemic” “rot” found in the organization. Israel should make sure that UNRWA does not operate in any post-war Gaza, as the organization compromises the security of the Jewish state.
