So they will take hostages to get it, just as they did in the past.
No because as you have said they want us out. They don't want us coming back. They don't want us supporting those that resist them.

I don't think they need a list to know who the Americans are. When I went to 770 did they need a list to tell who the goy was?  ;)

Americans, no.
Afghan collaborators, yes.
We aren't going back unless a 9/11 style event forces us back and they know that.

I agree.
What was/is your position on if we should have pulled out in the first place.

Right, because all Americans look/act the same 🙄.
How many of the Americans are of Afghan descent?

What about the list of Afghans who supported us, do we think a list will help them there?

It seemed to me that status quo made sense. Giving air support to them was a small cost to us. But whether status quo was tenable long-term is open to debate.

I wonder if I could go to Williamsburg and pick out a Jewish person. Probably not.  :)

For all those that supported the last admin can you explain this to me?
Doha was signed in February of 2020. Why were all these people that needed to be evacuated even there when Biden took office. If the last admin wanted them out (they didn't IMHO) why didn't they evacuate them? All but many 1-2k were essential so what happened?

I wonder if a Jewish person could hide the fact that they were Jewish if their life depended on it. I'd guess that some could (unless the people supposed to be protecting them gave their name to the people trying to kill them).

You keep talking about this list. What list, what names, how many names?
Also is this list different than the databases not destroyed all over the country? Or different than the list in the biometric scanners they are in possession of?

While you are so concerned about these individuals how about answering this question?
Doha was signed in February of 2020. Why were all these people that needed to be evacuated even there when Biden took office. If the last admin wanted them out (they didn't IMHO) why didn't they evacuate them? All but many 1-2k were essential so what happened?

Why did you quote me with this response?
Number of US casualties in the past couple of years -
2021 - 13
2020 - 11
2019 - 21
2018 - 14
2017 - 14
2016 - 9
2015 - 22

Every death is a tragedy, but the idea that the Taliban was winning is just plain wrong.

No "but officer". I am not a hypocrite like many here.
This is on Biden. He could have reversed everything the last admin did but choose not to. He is in office and he gets the blame or credit.

My question is/was to the kool-aid drinkers.

Yeah you've said exactly that enough times. We are pretty much on the same page here. I didn't mean that as criticism of your question but rather to make this same point.

Death toll from Kabul airport attack jumped to 170 people including 32 men, 3 woman & 3 children. Identity or 132 others still unidentifiable. Nearly 200 people also wounded.

I think it's pretty obvious that those who were on the country had very good reasons to be there. Why would they be evacuated before it was necessary?

So your defense of Biden give the Taliban a hit list is that he had already given them access to the hit list before by leaving behind information?
