The Taliban knows when they have someone at their mercy. That’s an instinct that criminals and terrorists have honed and refined, and their tells them the same thing that any objective analyst could tell you: Biden is their b**ch.

The Taliban is refusing to let charter flights with international passenger lists depart from the country until the White House meets their demands.

That’s CBS reporting that. And there’s more:

THE GROUP ASCEND, AN NGO THAT TEACHES YOUNG WOMEN LEADERSHIP THROUGH ATHLETICS, TOLD CBS NEWS THEY HAVE TWO PLANES THAT HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SIX DAYS READY TO TAKE BETWEEN 600 AND 1200 PEOPLE — INCLUDING 19 AMERICAN CITIZENS AND TWO PERMANENT RESIDENTS. 4/

“THE U.S. AIRFIELD IN QATAR THAT HAS BEEN STANDING BY, READY TO RECEIVE, IS NOW BEGINNING TO PACK UP,” MARINA LEGREE, THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, TOLD CBS NEWS. “WE HOPE VISIBILITY WILL ADD PRESSURE TO FORCE A SOLUTION. SIX DAYS OF TALKS ARE NOT ENCOURAGING.” 5/

SIX DAYS is a big deal. And don’t think for a SECOND the nature of the NGO doesn’t play a part in the Taliban’s choice of hostage.

Make no mistake, this is a hostage crisis. A VERY predictable one that pretty much everyone predicted except for Biden and his team of idiots. I am going to say again that if this were the Trump administration they would be making A HUGE DEAL out of this.

But with Biden? So far the State Department’s response is “tough beans.”

THE STATE DEPARTMENT ADVISED MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO TELL GROUPS SEEKING TO EVACUATE OUT OF MAZAR-I-SHARIF THAT THE US DOES NOT HAVE PERSONNEL ON THE GROUND IN THAT LOCATION AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE AIRSPACE. 6/

Well that’s what the Biden admin is saying to the NGOs and allies. To the press? They say what they always say:

CONGRESSIONAL AND NGO SOURCES SAY HERE ARE AT LEAST TWO PHYSICAL PLANS ON THE GROUND AND SIX MORE WITH APPROVED CLEARANCE. THE OBSTACLE IS THE TALIBAN — WHICH CONTROLS THE AIRPORT AND IS NOT LETTING PEOPLE BOARD OR THE PLANES TAKE OFF.

CBS HAS ASKED @STATEDEPT FOR COMMENT..

White House to send more than $300 million in aid to Afghanistan despite Taliban control

Published

on

The White House announced plans Tuesday to send more than $308 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan as millions face starvation under the new Taliban government following President Joe Biden’s withdrawal.

The assistance would be given by the United States Agency for International Development through “independent humanitarian organizations” to the Afghan people, National Security Council spokesperson Emily Horne said.

The administration has been criticized for sending aid to Afghanistan previously. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) warned that it would be “foolish” and asserted that the Taliban “would take the money.” 

“This brings total U.S. humanitarian aid in Afghanistan and for Afghan refugees in the region to nearly $782 million since October 2021, and we remain the single largest donor of humanitarian aid in Afghanistan,” Horne said, adding that the U.S. has also given 4.3 million COVID-19 doses to the Afghan people.

Assistance will “help provide lifesaving protection and shelter, essential health care, winterization assistance, emergency food aid, water, sanitation, and hygiene services in response to the growing humanitarian needs exacerbated by COVID-19 and healthcare shortages, drought, malnutrition, and the winter season,” Horne said.

China sent assistance to Afghanistan last month to help the nation prepare for winter and build ties between the Chinese Communist Party and the new jihadist government. 

“The United States is committed to supporting the Afghan people and we continue to consider all options available to us,” Horne concluded. “We stand with the people of Afghanistan.”

The soldier was identified as Spc. Maxwell Hockin, who was assigned to 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. He entered the Army in March 2017 as a combat engineer, Fort Hood officials said Wednesday.

Hockin’s awards and decorations include the Army Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon, officials said.

Hockin had been at the Texas base since July 2017, where he was assigned to the 91st Engineer Battalion.

Traffic flows through the main gate past a welcome sign, July 9, 2013, in Fort Hood, Texas.

“The entire Saber family is devastated by the loss of our true teammate and friend Specialist Maxwell Hockin,” Lt. Col. Patrick Sullivan, commander, 91st Engineer Battalion, said in a statement Wednesday. “He had an outstanding work ethic, was a mentor to his peers, and was always willing to help out the team. He will truly be missed. Our thoughts and our prayers are with Maxwell’s family during this difficult time.”
