After continually lying to the American people, the Biden Administration is now saying the quiet part out loud:
Americans were left behind in Afghanistan, and the administration expected as much.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby tried to downplay that fact that Americans were left behind by claiming that this kind of thing happens all the time:
“We have Americans that get stranded in countries all the time,” Kirby said in an interview.
This statement comes just a week after Jen Psaki claimed that it was “irresponsible to say Americans are stranded.”
Kirby also said that they would have liked to get more Americans out, but “the time just wasn’t there.”
