Brushing off issues that there really are Americans stranded in Afghanistan, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby informed MSNBC: “We have Americans that get stranded in countries all the time.”
Kirby makes it appear to be being stranded in a rustic that was lately taken over by the Taliban and now not has a United States navy presence, is as widespread as lacking a connecting flight from Chicago to Dallas.
More importantly, Kirby is confirming Americans have been left behind. Just final week, Psaki shot down the notion that Americans could possibly be stranded: “I’m just calling you out for saying that we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan, when I — when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home. We are going to bring them home. And I think that’s important for the American public to hear and understand.”
