The Biden White House has reportedly told American citizens trapped in Afghanistan that the U.S. government cannot guarantee their safety to travel to the airport in Kabul to be evacuated.
The Washington Examiner reports, “Yesterday, thousands of Americans who registered with the U.S. Embassy in Kabul received notice to begin to move to the airport, as an “undefined number of U.S. government-provided flights will begin soon.”
Various reports state that 10,000 American citizens, or perhaps even more, are still stuck in Afghanistan.
Further, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan refused to commit to guaranteeing that every American trapped in Afghanistan would be brought home.
Biden’s White House sent the following message to Americans trapped in Afghanistan, according to CBS News reporter Sara Cook:
“To American Citizens, Thank you for registering your request to be evacuated from Afghanistan. The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan has confirmed that an undefined number of U.S. government provided flights will begin soon. Please make your way to Hamid Karzai International Airport at this time.”
The message stressed, “PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR SECURITY AS YOU MAKE THIS TRIP.”
CBS News’ Catherine Herridge also shared video of National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, who passed on committing to bringing every American out of harm’s way.
A Biden administration State Department spokesperson told CNN, “The US message to Americans in Afghanistan right now is to shelter in place until they get communications from the US embassy which tell them when they should come to the airport and where exactly to go.”
