President Joe Biden has a history of leaving Americans stranded during crises without adequate assistance. This pattern is evident in several instances:
- Despite the Biden administration’s claim of evacuating over 120,000 people during the tumultuous withdrawal, more than 800 Americans were left behind enemy lines.
- The House Foreign Affairs Committee Republicans’ investigation revealed discrepancies in the administration’s information, with over 800 abandoned Americans, excluding those evacuated by non-government entities.
- No accountability was established for the loss of 13 American service members.
- Approximately 16,000 private American citizens were left in Sudan in April, forced to find their own means of exit during escalating violent conflict.
- While the administration facilitated the evacuation of embassy staff, no plans were made to assist the thousands of stranded American citizens.
- The White House emphasized that U.S. citizens in Sudan should make their own safety arrangements.
- After a significant terrorist attack in southern Israel, Americans in the country struggled to contact the U.S. Embassy and were left to navigate their own return.
- The embassy’s closure during the Christopher Columbus holiday hindered communication, prompting citizens to find commercial flights. Some faced difficulties due to widespread cancellations.
- Rep. Cory Mills had to personally retrieve American citizens following the attack, while Biden hosted a White House BBQ one day later.
- East Palestine, Ohio:
- Following a train derailment and toxic chemical spill in East Palestine, Ohio, Biden promised to visit but never did.
- Residents expressed disappointment, feeling ignored and emphasizing that Biden’s absence puts their community at risk.
- Despite not declaring a disaster, Biden issued an executive order for federal agencies to assess responsibility, leaving the affected community without federal resources.
These instances highlight a recurring theme of Americans being left to fend for themselves in the face of crises, with promises of assistance often unfulfilled.
