Both President Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to commit to safely evacuating all Americans in Afghanistan during a press conference this afternoon. This is unacceptable and UNAMERICAN. The Biden Administration cannot guarantee safe passage for all Americans being forced to hide in Afghanistan because they have no plan. WHERE IS BIDEN’S PLAN:
The Biden Administration needs to present a clear plan to Congress promptly on:
How the U.S. will get Americans safely out of Afghanistan;
According to the Pentagon, there are 10,000-15,000 American citizens still in Afghanistan – how will the Biden-Harris administration ensure their safety?
How the U.S. will conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan;
How the U.S. will prevent terrorist organizations from regrouping in Afghanistan; and
How will the U.S. protect the homeland from emerging terrorist threats in Afghanistan.
It’s simple: Every single American must be safely evacuated as quickly as possible from Afghanistan. Anything less is an unAmerican failure.
