Shocking emails show the depth of indifference by Biden’s team to human lives

4

Rep. Jody Hice’s (R-GA) staff spoke exclusively to Breitbart about seeking urgent assistance for Afghan allies who served in critical roles helping the US military during the Afghanistan War. The 25 allies, 7 of whom were SIVs, desperately tried to escape with their families including babies. They were in immediate danger of death.

The response from the Biden government was anemic. You can read the entire horrendous narrative at Breitbart but here we highlight the uncaring, irresponsible emails showing the depth of their indifference to the lives of people who helped the United States.

“All of the information we sent to State really just went into a black hole,” Reitz said of the countless calls and emails his office directed to the department.

The emails from the State Department reveal days-long lag times for substantive responses, and even then, the responses were not tailored to address the specific group of 25.

Six of the seven SIV applicants had worked as interpreters for U.S. forces. They were informally classified in emails at times as “high-value individuals” because they had aided U.S. military generals, served as translators for conversations of sensitive national security-related matters, or, in one instance, had been a lifesaving asset to a U.S. servicemember.

“If the Taliban had a list, they would be at the top of it,” Reitz said, explaining the SIV applicants feared for their safety because of their U.S. military associations.

As they desperately tried to get into the Kabul airport, inches from U.S. military personnel, they were refused entry despite pleadings from congressmen and others.

The State Department only responded to some of the desperate emails.

Reitz said they looked for a way around the US government through Uzbekistan.

An initial brief response from the State Department came within minutes:

The follow-up response, which included an attached rejection letter to Hice stating the embassy “is unable to facilitate travel for Afghan SIV applicants” and that “Uzbekistan officially closed its land border with Afghanistan on August 30, 2021” was sent more than three days later:

Separately, the Hice team received multiple generic emails after flight possibilities had been eliminated.

One email stated the State Department took the inquiries “very seriously,” was processing them “as quickly” as it could, and was “working around the clock to assist as many people as possible in Afghanistan”:

Another email stated one of the multiple Afghanistan task forces that had been created was “working intensively” with other entities on behalf of at-risk Afghans. The task force suggested specific cases call the National Visa Center Monday through Friday:

Yet another email showed the State Department forwarded the Hice team’s request Saturday, August 28, midday to an email address designated for congressional responses, but the actual reply came more than five days later, in which the department informed Hice’s office, “We understand the seriousness of the situation and appreciate that you have highlighted these cases for us.” The department then went on to provide generic instructions for applying for an SIV or other designation:

“Ultimately, this group never made it onto HKIA [the Kabul airport]. They split into several smaller groups to make their way north to Uzbekistan or Tajikistan. That’s the last we’ve heard from them,” Reitz stated earlier this week.

  1. Satanists posing as Jesuits in power will never end well.
    Sacrificing to their lord is what they do and you ain’t seen nothing yet.

  2. What an insult to our military and out country. The pile of human crap, senile, incompetent, ignorant, drooling Joe Biden watches as 13 coffins of our brave military arrive back on U.S. soil and all the moron can do is keep checking his watch. I guess the time of day is more important to him than the fact that he let these 13 soldiers be murdered by a bunch of rabid Muslim terrorists. Biden is not fit nor competent to serve this country in any capacity. He must be removed from office. Joe and the HO must Go!

    In 2012, four Americans lost there lives in Benghazi for absolutely no reason other than the feckless piece of human waste, Barack Hussein Obumbler and lying, cheating, crooked old bee eye tea sea H Hillary stood by and watched them be murdered by a bunch of rabid Muslims all for political reasons.

    Now, we have 13 U.S. service men murder by a rabid Muslim suicide bomber in Kabul all because of the total ignorance and incompetence of a senile old man that was elected to the WH in a fraudulent election. What a useless waste. Just imagine if you are the family of one of these service men who died because of such incompetence by our communist DemocRATic leaders. Joe Biden, Commie-ho Harris and the DemocRATs must go in order to save this nation. Fly you flag upside as a sign of distress, because this nation is in dire distress.

    THIS WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    TRUMP WON!
