Carter was a good man, but an awful President.
Biden is an awful man, and an even worse ‘President’……
A lot of people are pointing out the similarities between the two, and those comparisons are now even more appropriate given that Biden is now dealing his own version of the Iranian hostage crisis.
According to reports, at least 6 planes containing Americans as well as Afghans have all been grounded by Taliban fighters.
Americans are now being held hostage because their own Commander-In-Chief decided to put more faith in our enemies, and honoring agreements to our enemies, over putting America first.
I wonder how long it will be before they come home?
Here’s more on the story:

There is now an American hostage crisis in Afghanistan because @JoeBiden decided it was more important to honor a commitment to the Taliban to leave by 31 August rather than evacuate American citizens.#USA #USArmy #US #kabul #Afganistan #taliban

More details on the developing situation were provided by The New York Post:
McCaul, the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said on “Fox News Sunday” that the flights have been cleared by the US State Department to depart but “the Taliban will not let them leave the airport.”
“In fact, we have six airplanes at Mazar-i-Sharif airport, six airplanes, with American citizens on them as I speak, also with these interpreters, and the Taliban is holding them hostage for demands right now,” the Texas congressman told host Chris Wallace.
Wallace questioned McCaul on what demands the Taliban are making before allowing the flights to leave.
“Well, they are not clearing airplanes to depart. They’ve sat at the airport for the last couple days, these planes, and they’re not allowed to leave,” he said.

CBS News confirmed:
The planes are not currently loaded. The passengers are being held nearby, because the Taliban won’t let them into the airport, according to a senior congressional source.
“The U.S. airfield in Qatar that has been standing by, ready to receive, is now beginning to pack up,” Marina LeGree, the group’s executive director, told CBS News. “We hope visibility will add pressure to force a solution. Six days of talks are not encouraging.”
