Afghan interpreter who ‘helped save Biden’ in 2008 pleads for rescue after being left behind

The Afghan interpreter who helped retrieve then-Senator Joe Biden from the mountains of Afghanistan in 2008 has been left behind after the US withdrew from Kabul, and is reportedly now begging the White House to be rescued.
“Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family,” the Wall Street Journal quoted the man, whose name was given only as Mohammed, in an exclusive report on Tuesday. “Don’t forget me here.”

Now 36, Mohammed was the interpreter for the 82nd Airborne force that was deployed from Bagram Air Field to rescue Biden and his colleagues John Kerry (D-Massachusetts) and Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) in February 2008, when their helicopter made an emergency landing in Afghanistan during a bad snowstorm.



He had applied for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV), the program to evacuate interpreters who helped the US over the course of the 20-year conflict, but got stuck when the contractor he worked for lost the relevant records, the WSJ reported.
“His selfless service to our military men and women is just the kind of service I wish more Americans displayed,” Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Till had written in support of his application. “If you can only help one Afghan, choose [him],” wrote Shawn O’Brien, an Army veteran who had worked with Mohammed in 2008.

None of that seemed to help when Mohammed made his way to the Hamid Karzai International Airport in mid-August, only to be told by US troops there that he could get in – but his wife and children could not, according to the Journal.
“I can’t leave my house,” he told the paper on Tuesday, after the last US military planes had departed Kabul. “I’m very scared.”
Asked about Mohammed’s plight later in the day, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration's message to him was, “thank you for the role you played in helping a number of my favorite people."
“We will get you out”
in the “diplomatic phase,” Psaki added, saying that the administration's "commitment is enduring."




“Those who helped us are not going to be left behind,” President Biden had pledged on June 24. That was before the US-backed Afghan government completely collapsed and the Taliban took over Kabul, leaving the US troops surrounded at the airport.

The White House has boasted about evacuating 122,000 people during the 2-week airlift. Of that number, less than 6,000 were US citizens and the vast majority were Afghans looking to escape the Taliban. A number of Americans were left behind – the Biden administration would not say exactly how many – and apparently so did some Afghans who were promised rescue as well.
Biden has often referred to the 2008 incident to claim expertise in war on terrorism. The helicopter that carried the Senate delegation landed in a valley about 20 miles southeast of Bagram, in an area that wasn’t Taliban-controlled at the time, but was uncomfortably close to an area where heavy fighting had taken place. The three rescued senators later went on to serve in the Obama administration – Kerry as secretary of state, Hagel as the secretary of defense, and Biden as vice president.
The Biden administration decided to abandon Bagram early in the withdrawal process, acting on State Department and Pentagon advice that staging out of Kabul – a civilian airport in the middle of a densely populated urban area – was more convenient.

Service dogs LEFT FOR DEAD in Kabul by departing US troops – reports​

1630471346393.png

The American Humane Society has condemned the US government for apparently leaving a number of service animals behind after withdrawing from Kabul. Footage on social media showed the dogs in cages and roaming around the airport.
“I am devastated by reports that the American government is pulling out of Kabul and leaving behind brave US military contract working dogs to be tortured and killed at the hand of our enemies,” American Humane President and CEO Robert Ganzert said in a statement on Monday.
“These brave dogs do the same dangerous, lifesaving work as our military working dogs, and deserved a far better fate than the one to which they have been condemned,” Ganzert continued.
Images circulating on social media in recent days showed the dogs confined in cages at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul after their handlers had left the country. While the US military drew criticism for giving its own dogs seats on evacuation flights, those dogs are considered non-commissioned officers by the military, and outrank their handlers. The contract working dogs enjoy no such luxury.


Dogs are considered unclean by the Taliban, and Ganzert’s concerns about potential mistreatment have been backed up by other animal activists in Afghanistan. Former British Marine Pen Farthing managed to evacuate 150 dogs and cats from his animal shelter in Kabul over the weekend, but told the Daily Mail on Monday that Taliban fighters stabbed one of his dogs on the way through a security checkpoint to the airport, and shot two dogs he left behind with a friend.
The Pentagon insists that it didn’t leave any dogs in cages, “including the reported working dogs,” spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday. Kirby claimed that the dogs were left in the care of Kabul Small Animal Rescue (KSAR), a local charity run by an American woman named Charlotte Maxwell Jones.

KSAR and a number of other animal charities had been attempting to get a large group of rescue dogs on board an evacuation flight, but were reportedly denied by the Pentagon and ordered by the military to turn the animals loose at the airport. Video footage showing dogs roaming on garbage-strewn tarmac appeared to confirm these claims.


However, a charity involved in the rescue operation, Veteran Sheepdogs of America, claims that while some rescue dogs were turned loose, it is still caring for more than 50 service dogs at the airport, and is raising funds to fly the animals to Germany and on to the US. Other rescue workers and journalists have called the fundraising drive a “scam.”



The US evacuation mission wrapped up shortly before midnight on Monday, marking the end of a 20-year war in Afghanistan and leaving the Taliban once again in control of the country. Though more than 120,000 people were airlifted out in the preceding two weeks, the dogs weren’t the only ones left behind. “Hundreds” of Americans remain stranded in Kabul, Gen. Frank McKenzie, the head of US Central Command, told reporters, adding that the “diplomatic mission” to extract them would continue.

LOL can they be any more misguided?
There were hundreds of Dutch soldiers stationed in Afghanistan. Does that make Afghans traitors for collabortating with their fellow countrymen. Are they comparing their own country Netherlands to Nazi Germany?
