With the August 31st deadline looming, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said any American who wants to come home can. That is, those who can brave the Taliban checkpoints, beatings, and long and dangerous journey to the Kabul Airport.
For Americans who can’t make it safely to Kabul Airport, they have just one week to get there before Americans completely pull out and leave.
When asked about stranded Americans, Psaki sharply criticized Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocey, “First of all, I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded.”
“They are not, we are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home,” Psaki said.
When asked if there are no Americans stranded, Psaki did not respond to the question directly, instead said she was more interested in calling out Doocey.
On Tuesday, U.S. officials announced August 31st as a hard deadline to reach the airport because the Taliban have threatened a response if Americans remain.
