According to a disturbing report from Politico Thursday, “U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies” so they could be allowed through Taliban checkpoints. And President Biden admitted in a press conference that evening that the report could very well be accurate. But none of the broadcast networks cared to mention how the Biden administration’s further incompetence meant they handed terrorists what amounted to a “kill list.”
“U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that's prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials,” Politico wrote.
Officials familiar with the details suggest the list of names “was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people,” and “came as the Biden administration has been relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport.”
But according to one anonymous critic in the report who was furious at the decision, it was a “kill list.”
