So, Hate, you said you know that GOP Rep. Michael McCaul claims “Americans are being held in a hostage situation...based on classified briefings, and, based on the briefings he's received, the number of Americans abandoned in Afghanistan is in the hundreds.”
If you read the article then you know the State Department denies his clam. Here’s what our Secretary of State said.
“"It's my understanding that the Taliban has not denied exit to anyone holding a valid document, but they have said those without valid documents, at this point, can't leave, Blinken said at a news conference in Qatar alongside Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and their Qatari counterparts. He estimated that there are roughly 100 U.S. citizens seeking to flee Afghanistan and said the main impediment was the Taliban's refusal to let Afghans who lacked the necessary documents leave. "Because all of these people are grouped together," Blinken said, "that meant that flights have not been allowed to go."”
---What do you say? Is what McCaul claimed true? Do you know if hundreds of Americans are really being held hostage at the airport or is that number just a guestimate of all the Americans he thinks are still in Afghanistan and McCaul is somehow “relating” that number to the American passengers he claims were on the planes, if in fact there were any? Do you think there were there any Americans on those planes?
