Yet Another Afghan Translator Facing Beheading After Being Abandoned by Biden

This is the story of an Afghan translator who is currently doing all that they can to keep himself and his family hidden away in Mazar-e-Sharif. Now, he is losing hope when it comes to being evacuated in a timely manner. He fears that the Taliban will behead him and his loved ones.

This man has served our country, acting a translator for the United States military for 15 years. Since being left behind, he and his family have been reduced to sleeping at a hotel. Any Afghan who has ever assisted the United States is in peril. Thomas McGrath, who is a retired Army colonel, is one of the many veterans working tirelessly to help the former interpreter and his family make their way to safety.

The translator’s name is being withheld from the general public for obvious reasons. He is hiding with his eight children and his wife at the moment. American citizens, green card holders and Afghan helpers are all left to wonder whether they will ever make it out alive.

They want the necessary permission to step onto a chartered plane and leave the country. According to Taliban leadership, those who have the proper paperwork can leave. MSN has more about this saddening situation:

“We think we are in some kind of jail,” said one Afghan woman among the would-be evacuees gathered at one large hotel in Mazar-e-Sharif.

She described the Americans and green-card holders in their group as elderly parents of Afghan-American citizens in the United States.

The Afghan woman contacted at the hotel — an employee of a U.S.-based nonprofit, Ascend, that works with Afghan women and girls — also spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity for her security. She said those in her group have proper passports and visas, but the Taliban are blocking them from entering the airport.

Like the interpreter, she said she has been waiting for eight days.

At one point last week, alarm spread through the women’s side of her hotel in the city when warnings came that the Taliban were searching the would-be evacuees on the men’s side, and had taken some away.

“I am scared if they split us and not let us leave,” she said. “If we can’t get out of here, something wrong will happen. And I am afraid of that.”

Secretary of State Tony Blinken is feigning ignorance on this one, claiming that no one is being held hostage. The issues that the translator and his family are experiencing fly in the face of that. Americans are being gaslit on a daily basis. They are being told that all is well when things are certainly not. Blinken wants people to believe that this is all a paperwork issue but that does not seem to be the case here.

We would like to think that they are naive but in reality? This is apathy, straight and simple. Even Democrats are outraged. Per MSN:

“Later Tuesday, 12 Democratic lawmakers added to the pressure for evacuees, in a letter urging the administration to disclose its plans for getting out all of the hundreds of at-risk people remaining in Afghanistan, and not just American citizens.

“Our staff have been working around the clock responding to urgent pleas from constituents whose families and colleagues are seeking to flee Afghanistan, and they urgently require timely, post-withdrawal guidance to best assist those in need,” Representatives Jerrold Nadler, Zoe Lofgren, Gerald Connolly and nine other lawmakers from President Joe Biden’s party wrote.”

This is how incompetent the Biden administration has allowed themselves to become, in such a short time. It only took a few months for them to completely botch this objective but no one seems to care. Americans need to come together, so that we can stop being hoodwinked by this charlatan.
