Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) shocked Americans by explaining that “a few hundred American citizens that are in Afghanistan. We think most of them probably have made a decision to stay.”
The Biden administration is already preparing to leave behind Americans in Afghanistan, and Democrats are panicking about the optics of that decision.
Senator Cardin continued saying, “[W]e want the mission to be as successful as possible. That means protect our troops, but also get out as many people as possible. We still have a few hundred American citizens that are in Afghanistan. We think most of them probably have made a decision to stay. But we still want to make efforts to make sure we remove — can get every American evacuated from Afghanistan before the 31st.”
Thanks to President Biden’s spineless negotiating, U.S. troops must get out of Afghanistan by August 31st. That means Americans that want out of Afghanistan may not make it out.
