Between Americans being forced to swim through raw sewage and the Taliban blocking pregnant women outside the Kabul airport, President Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan was a living nightmare that is far from over, according to one U.S. Marine who aided in the operation.
Speaking with the Washington Examiner, retired Marine intelligence officer Lt. Col. Jonathon Myers recalled his “exhaustive effort to get American citizens and green card holders connected with Marines ” out of Afghanistan before the August 31 deadline. According to Myers, there was no possible way to pull all Americans out of the country due to the Biden administration’s gross mismanagement.
“Within that last 12 hours, I had four buses of American citizens outside the gate,” Myers said. “They were mostly pregnant women and babies, including a child with spina bifida, just all packed together waiting at the gate.”
