@washingtonpost reports that Taliban offered to stay out of Kabul and let US forces secure the city. We told them we only needed the airport. We could have controlled the airport and Kabul and evacuated everyone but chose not to. The incompetence is stunning. pic.twitter.com/5MbW6K81n3

"We’re dealing with Kabul. There’s 7 buses of female American citizens. The CG refused to open the gate. We have a congressman with us and he had the state department reach out. MG Donahue refused. 10 minutes ago the females were taken by the Taliban. They are likely dead now."

Over 40 are outside right now and MG Donohue can't be bothered with a simple task because he wants to retire to a six-figure job. "Let them eat cake." t.co/Ii8GWeYaVu pic.twitter.com/EEIt9KQkSs
