Afghanistan: U.S. Warns Citizens To Stay Away From Kabul Airport

Amid the chaos in Afghanistan, on Saturday, the United States Government warned U.S. citizens to avoid the Kabul airport.

A security alert issued by the U.S. Embassy says because of potential security threats outside the gates at the Kabul airport, “we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so..”

U.S. citizens requesting assistance in departing the country who have not yet to completed the Repatriation Assistance Request for each traveler in their group are being urged to do so as soon as possible.

The embassy also says don’t call them. “Do not call the U.S. Embassy in Kabul for details or updates about the flight. This form is the only way to communicate interest in flight options.”

According to the BBC, crowds have been gathering daily, hoping to be allowed onto a flight. Those who work with the US and its allies, as well as people who have campaigned on issues like human rights, “fear they may face reprisals at the hands of the Taliban if they are unable to leave.”

  1. Joe Biden and his administration is the MOST INCOMPETENT ADMINISTRATION EVER in the history of the US in the shortest amount of time In Office! Top bad that our military has been compromised by Clinton, Obama snd Biden operatives. Otherwise, we would have a military coup and President Trump would be returned to the Oval Office to right what’s left of this CLUSTERFUCK generated by Joe Biden and his administration!
