The US Embassy in Kabul sent another security alert to Americans trapped in Afghanistan on Wednesday.
“THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CANNOT ENSURE SAFE PASSAGE TO THE HAMID KARZAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT,” the US Embassy in Kabul told American citizens in a security alert on Wednesday.
“US government-provided flights are departing. US citizens, LPRs, and their spouses and unmarried children (under age 21) should consider travelling to Hamid Karzai International Airport. You should plan to enter the airport at Camp Sullivan. From the HKIA Airport South Traffic Circle, head east for 1km and turn right on to Camp Sullivan. Please note that gates may change frequently and that we will provide updates as necessary,” the security alert read.
The evacuation flights will be available on a “first come, first serve basis.”
What a disaster.

On Tuesday, the Biden Admin told Americans the US government cannot guarantee their security.
In fact, Biden made it a priority to evacuate hundreds of military-aged Afghan men as Americans were left behind.
Joe Biden flew in from Camp David late Tuesday evening and will be addressing the American people Wednesday afternoon.
According to his public schedule, Joe Biden will be giving a speech on Covid and vaccination as thousands of Americans are trapped in Afghanistan.
