Washington Post Reporter Rescued By British Troops As Biden Holds Back U.S. Forces

DM

As reported by the Daily Mail, a Washington Post reporter described how British troops helped her and her friends escape Afghanistan, adding to further criticism of the Biden administration’s refusal to allow U.S. forces to leave Kabul airport to assist with evacuation efforts. “Susannah George told of how she and the paper’s Afghan staff were able to latch on to a separate evacuation led by UK troops, after spotting them and asking for help to flee,” the Daily Mail reported. “That saw them hurriedly travel along a road to Kabul’s Hamid Karzai Airport in armored cars driven by private security guards.” “Those roads were being guarded from Taliban interference by UK service personnel, before making it to the security gate of the airport itself, which was manned by American troops,” the report continued. “George did not offer further comment on the troops who helped save her, but the UK’s elite Special Air Service (SAS) have been drafted in to rescue Britons trapped in the war-torn country.” Speaking on the subject of Americans attempting to reach the airport safely, President Biden said “We have no indication that they haven’t been able to get — in Kabul — through the airport.”
