Now: The US Military Abandoned Women and Children at the Airport Gate

Untitled 1

The Taliban — yes, The Taliban — guarded one family for hours. Waiting for the U.S. military to open the gate. That’s all they had to do. The Taliban can take the military any time they want it, so it’s not as if openly the gate presents special hazard.

This matter was brought up tp the Join Chiefs. Someone in our group got it all the way to Milley. Milley left them behind.

Only one Officer in the entire U.S. military stood up. And that Officer is the Greatest Officer in the Entire United States Military. From which, I heard while we were working rescues, that LTC Scheller resigned. With honor.

I personally know of 49 American men, women, and children, all near the gates now — and there are three empty civilian aircraft sitting for them on the tarmac. Just minutes from the gate.

I repeat for clarity. So that you know it was not a mistype or misstatement: Taliban took four of the Americans, guarded them for hours until the mother told Taliban to leave her and her children by the gate. They are at the gate right now.

Right. Now.

Now I will try to sleep.
