BAGRAM FALLS: BIDEN OFFERS “SHELTER IN PLACE” SOLUTION TO US CIVILIANS STUCK IN COLLAPSING AFGHANISTAN

KABUL – Afghan government surrenders Bagram airbase to Taliban.  As the Taliban seize control of the government, the US embassy has issued new advice to American citizens attempting to flee the country.

Previously, nationals were directed to the Kabul airport, but the embassy informed them that the airport was now “taking fire,” and the security situation had changed.  “We are instructing U.S. citizens to shelter in place,” the embassy said in a statement.

The embassy also posted a Repatriation Assistance Request form and advised Americans not to call the embassy for flight updates or details.

Many in the US government are calling this an embarrassment for our country and shameful that Biden can only provide a “shelter in place” advisory to US civilians left in Taliban hands.
