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?
It is obvious once the decision was made to surrender they were no longer needed. Like I said I could see maybe 1-2k were still needed if that many. Why weren't the rest evacuated when we were still in charge?
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?
Who is defending Biden? The list was to help get Americans out. Since you like calling it a hit list along with the kool-aid drinkers name one American on the list that was killed?

Seriously? You think 100K+ people had good reason to be there?

The most logical reason for all those people in Afghanistan is likely because they did not see that coming.

The question is, could/should the government know any better?

Most fascinating fallout of current disaster IMO will be the acceleration of the political realignment we now see that started under Trump of; America first /right wing paleoconservatives + neoliberals vs. radical left wing/ classic liberals + neo cons

BINGO, but who is the one who dropped the ball on that? It seems that the Biden admin was warned about this by the intel community. When did they make this assessment? Was it while Trump was in office? After? Either way the bottom line decision was definitely under Biden. It could have been changed as the intel came in.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Do you remember the Munich Olympics, when the news live streamed the hostage rescue operation so the terrorists could watch where special forces where entering from?

No, my question was how many we made promises to. My position is it can't be no where near the 100k we already evacuated.

This is a totally different issue/problem.

I'm not doubting such a blunder is possible, but do we know how many of the others are other foreign nationals, legitimate SIV applicants who are in middle of the application process, and all their families.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
