(Republican Insider) – You know, it must be getting a little boring for President Donald Trump to be proved right all the time. Trump recently predicted that the Taliban was going to take advantage of the huge and rather deplorable mistake Joe Biden made during his troop withdrawal from Afghanistan that resulted in American citizens being left behind by holding Americans hostage.
And, according to Infowars, that is precisely how the situation in Afghanistan is playing out as we speak. Again, it has to be tough being right all the time. The Taliban is currently holding six planes of Americans hostage and not allowing the planes to take off from the international airport in Kabul.
CBS News has reported that congressional and NGO sources have said, “multiple planes that are ready to take American citizens and green card holders out of the country are being denied permission to leave by the Taliban.”
The report in question goes on to note that an email from the State Department has confirmed that the flights have been given permission to land in Qatar “if and when the Taliban agrees to takeoff.”
“The Taliban is basically holding them hostage to get more out of the Americans,” CBS quotes a senior congressional source who knows the details of the current situation.

“Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), the ranking GOP member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, also told Fox News Sunday that the Taliban has initiated a hostage situation,” the Infowars report said.
“We have six airplanes at Mazar 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,” McCaul went on to say.
“They’re going to demand more and more, whether it be cash or legitimacy as the government of Afghanistan,” McCaul continued.

Other details have come out from Biden’s State Department about these private flights with Americans on board them being blocked from leaving Afghanistan, just to save face due to the fact they weren’t able to get them all out.
“This is zero place to be negotiating with American lives. Those are our people standing on the tarmac and all it takes is a f****ing phone call,” a source who is closely involved with efforts to evacuate Americans said to Fox News.
“If one life is lost as a result of this, the blood is on the White House’s hands. The blood is on their hands,” the source went on to say, adding: “It is not the Taliban that is holding this up – as much as it sickens me to say that – it is the United States government.”
TRUMP WAS RIGHT: In August 17th Interview He Predicted Taliban Would Hold Americans Hostage for Ransom — And Now They Have
This didn’t have to happen!
These hostages must be saved!
We must demand accountability!
IMPEACH Biden & his Administration!

Americans have been held hostage for days in Afghanistan by the Taliban but Joe Biden and Kamala haven’t made any moves to stop the Taliban. Weakness. If this happened under Trump, there‘d be fire and fury, the likes of which would‘ve ensured it never happened to begin with.

Several retired members of Special Forces, along with other U.S. veterans have traveled over to Afghanistan to help rescue the folks Biden and the White House left behind.
Joe Biden is spending his Labor Day weekend vacationing in Delaware.

Our people need to be rescued before the Taliban decides to get violent and ends up spilling the blood of an innocent person. If that happens, Biden needs to immediately step down from being the president, no questions asked and certainly no hesitation.
