This is totally ####### idiotic to say the least.

There are already 6 chartered flights on the ground to take Americans out.

Other aircraft that had landing permits were denied 3 times to land.

The State Department will not give approval for the 6 flights on the ground to leave and the 3 times landing permits were denied were also all denied by our State Department.

Joe Biden pulled our military out of Afghanistan WITH civilian personnel and contractors on the ground. We've heard the numbers 100 ~ 200, less than 200, 400, 1000, and numerous other numbers thrown out there as to how many individuals are still trapped in Afghanistan. We still do not know how many are on the ground.

Our POTUS and State Department pulled our military out of the region with civilians on the ground. And we're now in day 24 of the situation and still our government has not come forward with a plan to get those civilians out. 24 days and we still don't know how many Americans are trapped in Afthanistan.

Since then, we have retired special operations teams taking charter flights in to Afghanistan to rescue those citizens who are still on the ground in Afghanistan, but the State Department will not give authorization for them to leave and has denied entry to yet another aircraft from landing 3 times!

WTF?

I cannot believe this is America! Current administration has humiliated all Americans and turned our country into the laughing stock of the world.

And this same administration is blocking volunteers who are trying to help Americans in Afghanistan get out! It's totally insane to say the least.

When is this madness going to end? One of the reasons for turning them away was because the plane only seated 25 people. Well, 25 on that plane would be 25 less in Afghanistan!!!

Veteran 'turned away' from rescuing Americans in Afghanistan

I'm just not sure whether we can accept what ever answer they give.

Remember they said that the Benghazi attack was caused by a videoclip we posted!

And by they... I'm referring to the same people who were in charge when the Benghazi attack occurred are the one and the same who are in charge today too!

Edited to add: [With exception of Hillary Clinton of course!]

They told them they could not land anywhere in the U.S. with no explanation.  Since then they are being held hostage by the Taliban.  So to get them out, they will have to give in to Taliban demands.  It’s possible the planes have always been held hostage.

They will have bald faced lies and spin doctoring, until video or other evidence surfaces and goes viral to prove they are lying. And then they'll follow the playbook - tell another, bigger lie, until it's outrageous enough they can get 51% of the people to believe it. Whatever it takes to cover up incompetent politicians getting in the way and hamstringing everything into a total Charlie Foxtrot getting people out of Saigon- Afghanistan.

Not quite so accurate.

First of all, those planes don't have a large enough fuel tank to make it all the way to the US. What they refused to do was allow those planes to land in Qatar or some other country! They must have State approval before they can land in another country and that's what the State Department refused to do.

All the planes leaving should have landed elsewhere to be vetted.  The planes the administration brought directly to the U.S. allowed Afghani’s to call Ubers and leave without ever being vetted. If they are poor and endangered refugees how did they have phones, money and accounts set up for Ubers and places to go? Something is not right here.

Sep 11 is tomorrow. We'll know soon enough.

They were not Americans. They were not the Afghani who assisted us as translators, negotiators, go betweens, etc. And as they were not properly vetted, we have no idea who they are or where they went.

I think it's going to be another CHARLIE FOXTROT if you ask me.
