President Joe Biden has been telling the press that people in Kabul are having no problems getting to the airport, but the Pentagon just blew that lie out of the water.
According to Breitbart News, “Pentagon spokesman John F. Kirby admitted Friday that some Americans were having trouble moving through Taliban-controlled checkpoints in Afghanistan, contradicting what President Joe Biden told the nation less than two hours before.”
Earlier Biden said “We have no indication that [Americans] haven’t been able to get in Kabul, through the airport.”
But Kirby pointed out there was evidence to to the contrary.
“I would also note, though … that though there have been sporadic reports of some Americans not being able to get through checkpoints — I fully admit that — by and large, what we’ve been seeing is that Americans are able to get through those checkpoints, and are able to get onto the airfield,” said Kirby.
