Biden’s regime has been lying to us since they took over Whitehouse, they thought we were too dumb to understand what’s really happening in our country.
Last month, Secretary of State Antony Blinken insisted that roughly 100 Americans were left behind in the enemy lines.
“We believe the number of those who have American citizenship, many of them dual-nationals, who remain in Afghanistan is somewhere around a hundred,” he told reporters in Qatar in September, claiming the department to be in “direct contact with virtually all of them.”
Now, thier lies just back fired to thier faces – and recent reports confirms that thier were at least 363 Americans still trapped in Afghanistan. Far above the numbers they been telling to us.
The State Department reportedly relayed the information to congressional staff Thursday, admitting it is in contact with 363 Americans stranded in Afghanistan. Of those, 176 reportedly want to come home.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) has continually doubted the figure the Biden Administration has offered and remains a key figure in helping trapped Americans escape, bringing attention to their plight. In early September, he estimated the true number of Americans trapped as closer to 500.
“The State Department can’t just say off the record to Congressional staff that they’ve been lying from day one about the number of American citizens they stranded in Afghanistan,” he said in reaction to the latest estimate.
State Dept. informed congressional staff Thursday that it is in touch with 363 American citizens in Afghanistan, 176 of whom want to leave, per @jmhansler
That is significantly higher than the estimates of roughly 100 in Aug. which Admin officials regularly cited.
