Disgusting! Blinken blames those left behind for their predicament during presser


Secretary of State Anthony Blinken gave another vague, cover the administration’s butt, press conference today. He made it clear that the US plans to leave Americans and allies behind. Blinken also blamed the Americans and people who helped us for their situation which is totally the fault of the US administration.

One thing of all the things that we found infuriating was Blinken blaming the people left behind for their own predicament. Blinken balmed Americans who don’t get evacuated, didn’t follow guidance, and so on. The man is a buffoon.

Here he is blaming the victims:

He assured Americans that they will use diplomacy, sanctions, and political tools to get Americans and allies out after the military leaves Kabul [with our tail between our legs as terrorists chase us out].

Diplomacy alone never works. It’s absurd. The only option they will have since they won’t use force or strength is to pay them off with pallets of cash and gold. He’s going to continue relying on the terrorists.

As for international pressure, the Taliban do not care.

He again repeated the line that they will help Americans who want to leave. What American wouldn’t want to leave? He doesn’t explain.


When Andrea Mitchell asked for more specifics on how they are working to get people out of Afghanistan, cueing it up with some alarming real-life examples, he gave a typically vague answer. [See Below]

Blinken glossed over the locally employed staff at the State Department being left behind. Ric Grennell tweeted: Blinken failed to speak up in Cabinet meetings to demand that State Department staff be evacuated before the U.S. military closed Bagram. He left staff behind.

What a weak, awful human being.

Grennell added: This information Blinken is giving was known weeks ago. He’s talking about Americans who registered with the Embassy months ago. Why didn’t he know the number weeks ago? It should be updated regularly. He’s only scrambling now.

Guy Benson pointed out: Blinken says there were ~6,000 US citizens in Afghanistan a few weeks ago. Previous estimate we’d heard was 10-15k. Officials said earlier today there were at least 4100 Americans left in Afghanistan. Blinken now gives a much lower #. Says the numbers are fluid & hard to track. 

The US is taking out Afghan refugees — 77,000 or so — but not very many Americans and allies — 4,100 so far.

They haven’t done a thing to track people in the country who would be affected by the US departure when they knew for months that they planned to leave.

We now have a terrorist group in control of a country with money and support from Chinese communists. What could go wrong?


Mitchell asked a good question and is getting torched by the Left for asking it. She didn’t get an answer.

It’s time the States call an Article 5 Convention and take back the Government.

Many of us were clued in when Psaki et. al. would say, “those who Want to leave”. It was quite clear it would be the predicate to “claim” those left behind didn’t want to leave.

Blinkin wanted to give an “update” on US citizens Only because of backlash of almost Everyone. No One is satisfied with the non-answers from that podium. There should be a video compilation of all the bureaucrats using the phrase “want to leave”.

Complexity, Really? There’s nothing complex about putting masses of people on a damn plane, because they certainly aren’t vetting them. Still, for those who “want” to leave. It should be asked if there would be a single American who would prefer to stay in a country knowing the Taliban’s response to American nationals.

Not one person has asked, “for any given moment”, but a daily brief of the previous day should not be that difficult, unless there was no plan of any kind to begin with. It would mean there is no central clearinghouse for information. Is this typical Government.

It’s too bad no reporters bother to check Radar flights since they would see the air traffic over Afghanistan. It’s been looking like few flights are incoming and outgoing. It seems that the mission is basically ending within the past 24 hours.

Oh, spare me with your shallow empty platitudes about the 2 year old. A person who is that tense and nervous should not be in a position to promote or defend policies of the office. WHAT! Apparently the briefing wasn’t considered to have any importance as barely more than a half-dozen reporters were in the room.

Maybe Americans didn’t want to register with the State Department because they feared that info would fall into Taliban hands. Sadly once the Embassy fell these folks would have probably been proven correct.

Stinkin’ Blinken is winkin’ at comrade kommissarina Mitchell (CIA) as the Kabuki escalates.
Meanwhile the Long March Fundamental Transformation moves quickly.
2024? We’ll be lucky if it is only roasting rat kebabs over a 55 gallon drum in sandals made from old tires but hey at least we’ll have that precious indispensable equality.
Forward, yes we can!
