House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday that, “hopefully,” the Biden administration can evacuate all Americans still trapped in the deadly chaos at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.
“Hopefully, as many as those people [Afghans and Americans] will be evacuated as possible — hopefully all,” she reiterated. Not exactly a statement that inspires confidence and reassurance.
“But this is a tragic situation. I’ve been there eight or nine times to Afghanistan. We’ve changed Afghanistan in that respect, in that women have seen the light of day, but now that is under threat,” she added.
Women aren’t the only ones under threat now, thanks to the Biden handover of Afghanistan to the savage fundamentalists of the Taliban. Christians still there will now be massacred. The remaining Americans will become hostages. That country now will once again become a launching pad for terrorist acts throughout the Western world, particularly America.
Tragic situation, indeed. And Pelosi and her fellow Democrats own this.
