”Imagine all Americans and all of its allies being taken to safety BEFORE our military presence was needlessly removed!!!!!”
That seems to make perfect sense. Do you know why Trump didn’t do that or why, in your words, he “needlessly removed our troops” bringing our presence down to a meager 2500?
” Politico says that less than 5,000 Americans have been taken to safety.”
You’re saying Politico claims less that 5,000 “,Americans”. what is the date and can you provide the link.
On the 17th, this is what Politico said:
“We predict that our best effort could look like 5,000 to 9,000 passengers departing per day,” he said. “But we are mindful that a number of factors influence this effort, and circumstances could change.”

Hts: You would have had to drastically increase the troop level to accomplish those things. You would have had to break Trump's agreement with the Taliban. You would have risked reigniting the war.
