Thousands of US citizens still trapped in Afghanistan, administration doing little to help
Democrat Joe Biden’s administration is demanding $2000 from every American trapped in Afghanistan to pay for their evacuation flights out of the terrorist-controlled country.
This disturbing revelation was buried deep in a Politico article published on Thursday.
“Even though U.S. officials tell NatSec Daily and others that evacuation flights from Kabul will be free, people trying to catch a plane in the Afghan capital say differently,” the outlet reported.
“One person said State Department staff were seeking large payments — up to $2,000 — from American passengers and even more from non-U.S. citizens.”
Biden’s State Department was asked by Politico if this was, in fact, true.
An official spokesperson didn’t deny it in their response, however.
“U.S. law requires that evacuation assistance to private U.S. citizens or third-country nationals be provided ‘on a reimbursable basis to the maximum extent practicable’,” the spokesperson told Politico.
“The situation is extremely fluid, and we are working to overcome obstacles as they arise.”

This news comes as reports are emerging from Afghanistan that Taliban thugs are going “house-to-house” in Kabul and “hanging” Afghans who they believe worked with Americans.
Accoridng to reports on the ground, militants sent out a warning for “people that operated with America” before hunting down and executing people who helped U.S. forces over the years.
Thanks to Biden’s overly hasty plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, between 10,000 and 40,000 Americans have been left trapped in the country under Taliban rule.
When chaos began to reign in Afghanistan following the withdrawal, those Americans received a less-than-promising message from the Biden administration.

“PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR SECURITY AS YOU MAKE THIS TRIP,” a letter sent to Americans in Afghanistan read.
Now, if Politico’s reporting is accurate, the Biden administration is demanding payouts from the thousands of American citizens left stranded in Afghanistan — citizens who only need help because of the Biden administration’s mishandling of the situation in the first place.
And of course, their money will probably help fund Biden’s next catastrophe.
