By saying Americans HAVE been attacked by the Taliban on the way to Kabul airport and al-Qaeda IS still operating in Afghanistan

Minutes after President Biden on Friday said the mission to destroy Al Qaeda in Afghanistan was a success and that he knew of no circumstances where Americans had been unable to reach Kabul airport, he was flatly contradicted by the Pentagon.
Al Qaeda remains present in Afghanistan, said Department of Defense spokesman John Kirby during a briefing, and yes, he was aware of reports of Americans being beaten by the Taliban as they tried to reach safety.
The contradiction will raise further doubt about whether Biden is in control of the White House messaging operation, let alone the chaotic effort to bring Americans home.
He cancelled plans to return home to Wilmington on Friday evening as officials scrambled to give off an air of urgency.
He even answered questions about Afghanistan for the first time in 10 days after delivering a speech in the East Room of the White House.
American lives are now held hostage by accelerating Taliban Wahhabi rule in Afghanistan. There are reports that the kill list is long as identities and bank records of Americans were retrieved from the US Embassy. As the outer perimeter outside the airport becomes a chaotic hunting ground.
Would he send troops out of their base in Hamid Karzai International Airport to help stranded Americans reach safety, he was asked.
‘We have no indication that they haven’t been able to get in Kabul through the airport,’ he said.
‘We’ve made an agreement with the Taliban thus far, they’ve allowed them to go through, it’s in their interest for them to through.’
