Afghanistan: U.S. Army Turns Away Bus of Evacuees
A U.S. Army colonel reportedly turned away buses of evacuees in Afghanistan, putting their lives at risk.
From The Daily Wire. A U.S. Army colonel turned away four busloads of Americans, orphans, and others with verified paperwork guaranteeing safe passage out of Afghanistan, members of a volunteer evacuation team claimed in a new documentary.
… The operators said in a new Amazon Prime Video documentary, “Send Me,” that an unnamed U.S. Army colonel “murdered” hundreds of potential evacuees by refusing them spots on flights out of the country because their papers could have been faked, according to the Daily Mail.
Former Army Ranger and MMA fighter Tim Kennedy said the incident took place on August 25, 2021, days before the American withdrawal concluded. Kennedy’s team of highly skilled specialists had driven four buses filled with hundreds of people through a secret, U.S. military-controlled gate into Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport at 3 a.m.
The evacuees’ documents had been verified, and the group, comprised of Americans, allies, Christians, orphans, and others, was preparing to board a flight out of Afghanistan, which the Taliban controlled by that point. A colonel with the 82nd Airborne met the buses and allegedly demanded they all be sent away.
… Former Force Recon Marine Chad Robichaux, another member of the elite evacuation team, said the colonel had “essentially just killed” the group by sending them back out of the airport in view of the Taliban, which would identify them and hunt them down for working with the Americans.
“So many lives were lost. Today is the anniversary of 13 Americans. Hundreds of Afghans were killed at that gate — a terrorist attack during the evacuation, one of the most poorly planned strategic evacuations in American history,” Kennedy said. “If we’re not learning from this, if we’re not treating this as an opportunity to improve not just strategically, but who we are as a people, making sure that all of our allies look to us and know that we’re going to stand by them all the way to the end, that we are good allies, that we’re good friends.”
