Administration admits that they are in contact with more than 300 Americans still in Afghanistan.
U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after the Biden Administration admitted to Congress that more than three hundred American citizens are still in Afghanistan, contrary to the administration’s persistent lie that only “about a hundred” Americans remain.
“The Biden Administration has shamelessly and repeatedly lied about the number of Americans trapped behind Taliban lines. For weeks, their official number was ‘about a hundred’ and it magically never changed — as Americans slowly got out the total number never went down. Now they say more than 300 Americans are still in Afghanistan. The Biden Administration lied to hide the consequences of the President's morally indefensible decision to abandon our people in a war zone. This slow-motion hostage crisis and the administration’s coverup are disgraceful. Mr. President, bring our people home.”
