Just how many Americans were aboard the countless flights that took off?
We keep getting reports of countless planes, loaded front to back with passengers, but how many of those passengers are actually American citizens?
You may want to sit down for this because it’s going to make you angry.
According to sources, the sum total percentage of Americans aboard those flights out of Kabul is roughly 5%.
The fact of the matter is Americans have not been prioritized, the lives of our Marines have not been prioritized, and America was not put first.
Heck, this administration didn’t even put America last, we don’t even deserve the bottom of the barrel, according to Biden and his cabinet, we are under the barrel altogether.
Take a look:
Over 4,400 Americans have now been evacuated from Afghanistan: Pentagon

American citizens will reportedly not be prioritized by President Joe Biden in the evacuations from Afghanistan. The Taliban have encircled the airport and there are tens of thousands of Americans left in Kabul. And our President is on vacation. Let that sink in.

The Federalist states:
About only 5 percent of the people the United States has evacuated from Afghanistan are Americans seeking safe passage home.
More than 82,300 have been airlifted from Kabul since the government’s collapse nearly two weeks ago, but the Pentagon says that, as of Wednesday, only 4,400 Americans were rescued in those evacuation operations.
Blinken attempted to put a number on stranded Americans, according to Fox News, though many remain skeptical:
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday that he believes less than 1,000 American citizens are still in Afghanistan and attempting to leave.
Blinken said that there were 6,000 Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan on August 14 and 4,500 of them have been evacuated within the last 10 days. He added that 500 of the remaining number have been instructed on how to leave within the last 24 hours. That leaves roughly 1,000 Americans left in the country, but Blinken said the actual number is lower for a variety of reasons, including situations where Americans want to stay or have already left and not notified the government.
“From the list of approximately 1,000, we believe that the number of Americans actively seeking assistance to leave Afghanistan is lower, and likely significantly lower,” Blinken explained.
