Pentagon did NOT know about threat to Americans at Kabul Airport, finds out from REPORTERS


How great are things going in Kabul? So great that Biden had to cancel the second vacation he was planning to take this weekend to Delaware. Seriously, that happened. And if you think it’s because he was worried about the State Dept. and U.S. Embassy telling Americans to hide out and not go to the airport to escape because it is too dangerous to do so, you’re probably wrong.

See, the Pentagon? They didn’t even KNOW about that.

"He executed a mission that he believed was in the best interest of helping these Americans, and he did," Kirby said. A third country, which Kirby would not identify, had established security at the hotel and informed the US that its citizens were there.
In his remarks Friday at the White House, Biden vowed, "Any American who wants to come home, we will get you home."
But while the US military has increased the pace of evacuations, reports indicate that the scene outside Kabul's Hamid Karzai International Airport is growing increasingly desperate.
Those who are able to reach the airport perimeter have reported waiting hours to enter and the US Embassy advised in a recent security alert that "due to large crowds and security concerns, gates may open or close without notice."
Biden laced his assurances Friday with a sober note of caution as reports continued to emerge of the Taliban beating and threatening people, including Americans, who are trying to make their way to the airport.
"Make no mistake, this evacuation mission is dangerous, involves risks to armed forces and has been conducted under difficult circumstances," he said.
    "I cannot promise what the final outcome will be, or ... that it will be without risk of loss. But as commander in chief, I can assure you that I will mobilize every resource necessary."
