A Navy aviator helping Afghan-Americans evacuate Afghanistan contradicted the Biden administration's claims, saying that citizens trying to leave via the airport had been denied entry by Taliban officials.
I am furious!! My team has been on the phone all day trying to get AMERICAN CITIZENS out. They have been just outside the airport numerous times, but the State Department WILL NOT help them.— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) August 29, 2021
They have been beaten by the Taliban at check points and told to leave and come back with large sums of money. Biden is going to get them killed! Enough! We have put someone who gives a damn in charge RIGHT NOW!— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) August 29, 2021
Retired Navy aviator Brett Odom appeared on "Fox & Friends" Monday to discuss his efforts to evacuate stranded citizens from the city of Kabul. He also hit back against the Biden administration's denial of citizens being turned away.
The interview came hours after multiple rockets were launched at Kabul's airport but were intercepted by U.S. missile defense systems within the country.
