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.

White House admits Iran ‘few weeks or less’ from nuclear breakout; quickly blame Trump
Naturally, the Biden Administration quickly attempted to blame former President Trump for Iran’s most recent nuclear development. It’s not surprising the White House made a desperate attempt to deflect, as Press Secretary Jen Psaki was forced to admit Iran’s “breakout period” for a nuclear weapon “is down from about a year…to just a few weeks or less.”
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed Iran’s “breakout” time was “down to a matter of weeks.” The Times of Israel notes that the breakout period refers to the amount of time “it will take Iran to amass enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon, if its chooses to do so.”
The Times of Israel notes that a distinction must be made: “having enough nuclear material for a bomb is not he same as having the capabilities to build the core of the weapon and to attach it to the warhead of a missile, which would likely take more time.”
Psaki told reporters at Tuesday’s press conference that Iran’s nuclear development “definitely worries us.”
“If we go back, under the Iran nuclear deal, Iran’s nuclear program was tightly constrained,” she said. “Since the Trump administration ceased US participation in the deal, Iran has rapidly accelerated its nuclear program.”
“That is a direct impact of pulling out of the nuclear deal, making us less safe, giving us less visibility, and it’s one of the reasons we pursued a diplomatic path again,” Psaki said.
Psaki’s comments are laughable, considering Iran has never given any proof of abiding by any deal. The 2015 nuclear deal gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for guarantees it would not develop a nuclear weapon.
As the Times of Israel writes, curbing its nuclear weapons development is something Iran “has always denied wanting to do.” In 2018, knowing full well that Iran had zero intention of abiding by the deal, President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the accord and reimposed sanctions against Iran.
Ever since Biden took office, one of the first things his administration did was begin negotiations with Iran via intermediaries in Vienna. The talks have gone nowhere.
