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.
