DeSantis requests transparency on Floridians remaining in Afghanistan

Governor Ron DeSantis joined Sean Hannity to talk about Afghanistan

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Governor Ron DeSantis sent a letter today to the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Homeland Security, requesting information on the efforts to evacuate American civilians and allies in Afghanistan. DeSantis called the lack of information sharing “unacceptable” and said the crisis “is of President Biden’s own making.”

In the letter, DeSantis requested the number of Floridians remaining in Afghanistan, information about the actions of the Administration to ensure their safe evacuation, information about the number of Afghans being evacuated and where they are going, information about the vetting process for these Afghans, the number of evacuees who have been flagged for possible ties to terrorism, and what will happen to American citizens and Afghan allies who are “left in harm’s way” after the Administration’s self-imposed deadline of August 31, 2021, passes.

DeSantis requested an immediate response and said the current situation in Afghanistan “was avoidable and predictable” and “will impact the safety of Americans and military partnerships for decades to come.”

  • Afghanistan is OVER….The End!
    Any Americans remaining must be idiots! How many signals were sent? Trump said May & Biden said August! What they didn’t have a calendar or smart-phone? They were waiting on a personal invitation to leave? What were they doing there in the 1st place? Vacationing?
    America 1st! Let’s fix COVID & IDA then get back to this subject if nothing better to do!
    20 years: Enough! Everyone except military & diplomats assigned to that hell-hole had years to pack up & get out!

  • Now on Ida – who are these people who didn’t store hurricane supplies like batteries, water & canned food? Now all looking @ FEMA to save them? Personal responsibility! Not Government handouts!

  • back on Americans remaining in Afghanistan: 2 questions should be answered before any other: 1) what were they doing there / why were they in that hell-hole? 2) why did they wait ’till the house-of-cards fell? Stupidity? Busy packing bags of stolen cash? What did they fail to understand in Trump’s May deadline & Biden’s subsequent August?
    After we know the facts we can then maybe have a drop of sympathy? Let’s quit trying to save people from their own gross stupidity!
    How many times have we read about some idiot doing something stupid like getting stuck on a mountain; then expecting a $ multi-million rescue endangering 1st responders?
    Let Darwin’s Theory play out! When people intentionally do very risky stupid stuff let them suffer the consequences! (the kite-surfer who recently flew into an oceanfront wall comes to mind)
    Why are Americans still in Afghanistan? What possible acceptable excuse could they have?
    Let’s get back to personal responsibility (not government rescues from gross stupidity) see Ida post above!
