The Atlantic’s Packer: Biden Misled on Afghan Allies Refusing to Leave, ‘It Was Bureaucratic Obstacles’

‘President Biden said more than once, several times, and his aides began to repeat it that more than half…the SIVs chose not to leave when they could have’

EXCERPT:
PACKER: “Well, this is either wishful thinking or deliberate deception. President Biden said more than once, several times, and his aides began to repeat it that more than half…the SIVs chose not to leave when they could have. When, in fact, what the experts, the lawyers, the advocates working with those SIVs told me was, no they couldn’t leave. Because either their families did not have complete sets of passports yet and they were waiting for them and they were very hard to get or they were waiting for the U.N. flights, which are the flights that are supposed to take them out of Afghanistan and to the United States. In other words, it was bureaucratic obstacles.”
