Joe Biden on Tuesday said his botched withdrawal of Afghanistan, which resulted in the deaths of 13 US service members and hundreds, if not thousands of stranded Americans was an “extraordinary success.”
However, a White House official is “appalled and literally horrified” that Joe Biden abandoned Americans behind enemy lines in Afghanistan.
Just two weeks ago Joe Biden told Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos, “If there are American citizens left, we’re going to stay until we get them all out.”
Hundreds, if not thousands of Americans are trapped in Afghanistan in what will no doubt become a hostage situation.
A Biden White House official told Politico they were shocked that Joe Biden stranded Americans.
“I am absolutely appalled and literally horrified we left Americans there,” the official said. “It was a hostage rescue of thousands of Americans in the guise of a NEO [noncombatant evacuation operations], and we have failed that no-fail mission.”
