Member of the House Intelligence Committee Markwen Mullin, R-Okla., claimed that President Biden “has blood” on his hands and told Granthshala News that the White House and the Pentagon are lying about the conditions facing US citizens in Afghanistan, as well as the perceived ease with which Americans had to reach Kabul airport while US forces were still on the ground.

Mullin recently returned from a semi-secret trip to the Middle East to help bring home Americans stranded in Afghanistan following Biden’s return process. The lawmaker told “Special Report” anchor Brett Baer that the State Department has not been truthful to the American people, and he spent nearly a dozen hours on the phone with them, trying in vain to land in Afghanistan.

“I want to make it very clear. I was not trying to go to Afghanistan…. [P]People started calling me for help. And we were getting friends of mine who were in the service who said ‘Can you help our interpreter get out?’ – About which we had a lot of conversations. Then we started getting calls from people whose family members or friends were US citizens.”

First, Mullin – as a House member – sought to sponsor a flight to the United States to get 20 Americans out of the Taliban-controlled country, after several federal agencies turned down the group.

“Everybody kept refusing them and then they asked ‘Will you walk with us? And these are Tier 1 operators. These are DELTA people, Special Forces. These people are legit. I’m nobody. I’m just a congressman,'” They said .

He then left the US and spent hours circling Hamid Karzai International Airport as his request to land was repeatedly denied.

OK Representative Mullin, after reports of an attempt to evacuate Afghanistan, says he is on his way home.

“Every time they canceled, the agency that was trying to get us in would give us a new one. They actually went to the tower to say let them get off. We talked with them on the phone. We were not talking. We were messaging back and forth and they kept on issuing us a new one. And they would never let us into Afghanistan.” He said he suspected the delay led to the disappearance or death of one of the US citizens. Help defend:

“Unfortunately, one of our US citizens and his 2-year-old son and I believe it was his father who had passports with me – we lost contact because they were at the abbey gate and a few hours later abby We haven’t had any contact with them since the gate blown up. I believe it’s because they were trapped in that. So what did they do by politics over it, for whatever reason – I don’t know who told us Closed, but I think it was 100% directed from the State Department.”

Mullin denied reports that he and his group then decided to try to move to neighboring Tajikistan – but he confirmed that the top US diplomat in Dushanbe was also difficult to work with.

“Unfortunately the ambassador to Tajikistan was not helpful at all. And there was a lot of misinformation going out about him,” he said of Ambassador John Mark Pomersheim.

Mullin said Pomersheim told him it was a “sensitive” time and that Vladimir Putin and the Xi government in China were visiting Tajikistan in September.

“I said I think it’s too sensitive. I don’t need your property. I was, first of all, letting you know that we were coming. I and I had our say too, but we’re one Coming along is a huge amount of cash,” Mullin recalled.

He said he was then questioned about the cash he was carrying – adding that his team would have to pass through 16 Taliban checkpoints to get from there to Kabul – each of which was held by the terrorists. will charge an amount they call “tax”. up to $4,000.

“And [Pommersheim] He says I can’t help you. I can not help you. Why? I was told not to – you were told not to help a US citizen? You were told by the federal government in Washington, DC not to help when we’re not trying to smuggle anyone.”

He remembered Pomersheim as saying “we’re trying to do a thing that President Biden won’t do.”

After the roadblock from the Tajik embassy, ​​Mullin said he was beginning to realize how much Biden and his top military officials, including Gaines, are. Mark Milley and Kenneth “Frank” McKenzie Jr. were reportedly “lying to the American people.”

“[They were] To say that everyone could get out what they wanted is a lie – it’s a bold 100 percent lie because we were dealing with these individuals,” he said.

Mullin said he had a recording proving that Biden was lying about the alleged systematic ability for citizens and visa holders to access the then US-controlled Kabul airport last month.

A mother approached the State Department for help through Taliban checkpoints in Kabul, they said, adding that the woman tried 5 times until a Taliban terrorist put a gun to her head and scared her children .

“This is a young woman and her four kids that I have recordings of, we were recording as we walked because I was on the phone with the State Department for 12 hours trying to get someone out of the State Department. [airport] Gate to pick him up for 12 hours – I’ve recorded it,” he said.

“Tell them they’re waiting on us. Give them your name. They know you’re coming. Five times he approached this guard with the Taliban, the last time they stuck a pistol to his head with their kids.” Granted,” he said, adding the woman went back home one last time and became physically ill, never to try to reach the airport again.

“Here we are the United States government and we’re negotiating with the Taliban to take out American citizens and then the President of the United States would go to the mic and say every American who wanted out? I have a list of 50. From those who don’t want them out. I have a list of 50 that we ran out of Kabul and kept in safe houses around Afghanistan, I promise you they wanted out,” he said.

Mullin predicted that the Taliban would eventually “lose patience” with US-aligned evacuation efforts and allow them through their outposts across the country while paying “taxes”.

“And when I say blood is on his hands, do I mean President Biden’s hands? I mean I have everything in my heart,” he said.

“It’s his fault. I wouldn’t have been there – I wouldn’t have even thought of leaving if it hadn’t been for his failure. I wouldn’t have put my life in danger. I wouldn’t have put my life. Kids and my wife.” I don’t put anyone through it.”
