Outrageous: Pentagon Press Secretary Says Americans ‘Get Stranded in Countries All the Time’

John Kirby

Pentagon Press Secretary Admiral John Kirby is causing uproar due to his insensitive comments. John Cooper tweeted a video of Kirby speaking to Fox News Tuesday morning with the caption, “Kirby says it’s okay that we left U.S. military assets and weapons behind for the Taliban because they don’t ‘pose a threat to the United States or pose a threat to neighboring nations.”

Kirby’s out-of-touch comments don’t end there. On MSNBC Tuesday morning, Kirby addressed the reports that while no American troops are believed to remain in Afghanistan, an undetermined number of Americans have indeed been left behind.

Kirby suggests that number is in the “low hundreds.” That comment is enraging on its own, but Kirby not only gave zero context for the estimate, he also failed to acknowledge the incredibly important thousands of Afghan allies of the U.S. military who also remain.

However, the real gut punch was when he seemed to excuse the administration’s completely botched evacuation efforts by stating, “we have Americans that get stranded in countries all the time.”

Only weeks ago, Press Secretary Jen Psaki flat out lied to the public during a press conference when she got aggravated at a reporter for asking about “stranded” Americans to which she shot back, “I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not.”

Now, you have another Biden administration press secretary contradicting the other one and admitting Americans are stranded, but downplaying the horror. Not to mention, the thirteen young American men and women who perished less than a week ago from the suicide bombing attacks, as well as all those killed the last twenty years of war are also Americans left behind.

    Admiral John Kirby should be sent to Afghanistan to check and report back if there are any Americans left behind, and if any of the Afghan people who worked with America are being executed. Send him now! The entire Biden administration should all be put on a plane and sent to Afghanistan.

    Yeah sure. Every time the U.S. military flees from a country after losing a war, American civilians are abandoned, left to the mercy of 7th century barbarians.

    The entire corrupt career politicians in Washington DC should be made a mandatory trip to the Middle East to take a lesson first-hand on how those poor kids felt being made targets for the vicious Taliban that are murderers and ungodly Heathens that will kill all of those that have helped the USA! They consider them infidels as they look at America as an enemy of the planet! Looks like the Biden-Harris administration has shown their true colors when it comes to the few and faithful they put 20-23-year-olds in a position that they did not enlist for because most PRESIDENTs support their military that protects and serve the country not like this MORONIC administration that assassinate their own for a PHOTO-OP on 9/11! I will be surprised if 9/11 comes without an attack from the very ones that BIDEN trusted to “let the people go” to leave safely. Sounds familiar like Egyptian Pharoah who promised to “Let Gods People GO”, HE IS A BONIFIED MORON! Where is the VP while all of this Hell is happening on her watch? OH, she is out campaigning in California for another MORON, Newsom being financed by Soros and his Auntie Pelosi!
