Biden couldn’t have done a worse job handling the Afghanistan pullout if he tried.
If you hear him talk about it now, it’s like he either didn’t even have a say in the way we pulled our troops out of the now Taliban-controlled country or he didn’t even know it was going on…
And neither scenario is good.
It’s not good for Afghans who don’t want to live under the dictatorial leadership of the extreme Islam group, and it’s especially not good for the untold number of Americans that have been left stranded in the country, even after Biden PROMISED them that he wouldn’t leave one American behind.
The situation in Kabul has escalated with each passing day.
Even now, there are planes full of Americans waiting to take off…and the Taliban won’t left them leave, effectively turning the whole thing into the worst hostage situation we’ve ever seen.
People are DESPERATE to get their friends, families, and loved ones home, and they will stop at nothing to do exactly that.
Last week, a Texas family, consisting of a mother named Mariam and her three children, was rescued from the Taliban’s clutches, brought overland through dangerous terrain to the safety of a neighboring country (the precise location has been withheld in all available reports to protect the family from Taliban forces).
Lyin’ Biden’s State Department Fib
Mariam and her children, who live northwest of Dallas, had gone to visit her parents in Kabul when the Taliban suddenly overtook the city.
The family tried to get out of Afghanistan on an emergency evacuation flights four separate times, but a member of the Taliban stopped them every time. During the last attempt, a Taliban militant reportedly pointed a pistol at Mariam’s head as the family arrived at the airport.
This is when Army combat veteran Cory Mills got involved.
Mills and his private team got Mariam and her family to a safehouse and organized for them to travel on an overland route to reach the border of a neighboring country and get to safety.
And that’s where this story should end…
But it took a very weird turn for the surreal when, on Monday afternoon, the State Department publicly stated that they helped to “facilitate” the private operation, telling reporters that the US government agency “provided guidance to the family, worked to facilitate their safe passage, and Embassy officials greeted the Americans once they had crossed the border.”
However, as with all things with the Biden administration, this was nothing but a bald-faced lie.
That’s not what happened at all.
The story challenging the State Department’s narrative comes to us from the lips of Cory Mills himself.
In an exclusive interview, Mills told Fox News, “This is an attempt to save face by the administration for the Americans they left behind. This is a woman with three children from age 15 all the way down to two-years-old. And they [the State Department] did nothing to try to expedite this… But at the very last minute you have these ‘senior officials’ at the State Department trying to claim credit for this like ‘oh yeah look what we’ve done’. It’s like we carried the ball to the 99-and-a-half yard line and them taking it that last half yard and being like ‘look what we did’.”
Mills said they were no help at all…but it gets worse from there. There’s something worse than being “no help”, and that’s actively working against the operation to save Americans!
Biden Standing In The Way Of Bringing Americans Home!
That’s a bold claim, but it’s one that GOP Rep Markwayne Mullin is making nonetheless. “The State Department was actually told at one time, actually told the embassy and the country [the country the family was brought to] not to assist us in any way,” Mullin said. “Quote, that came from the ambassador, said ‘Washington, D.C., Representative Mullin, I’m not to assist you in any way.’ It wasn’t until the second day that we almost had her out that the State Department came in, and when they came in, they did come in to help, I’ll give you that. They showed up a few hours after she got across. For them to say they facilitated, that’s a lie.”
GOP Rep. Markwayne Mullin disputes the State Department claiming credit for the rescue of a woman and her family from Afghanistan and says he did not threaten US embassy staff in Tajikistan. https://t.co/wLeaLEfVo9 pic.twitter.com/Du1czPesgC

Does this surprise you?
It’s simply the White House trying to save face. Nothing more.
The next step here needs to be an investigation into Joe Biden and his entire administration for the way things have been handled here. There NEED to be consequences.
It’s amazing more calls for his resignation haven’t been made yet.
This is a debacle of unprecedented proportions, and the fact that they feel the need to LIE about things like rescuing an American family lets you know just how deep the water is getting for them.
They’ll grab onto any life raft – even if that life raft is a lie.
Not a good look, Joe…
