Honest question. Did those US people in Afghanistan not realize that they needed to get out earlier?

Were people even able to get out of Afghanistan earlier? Did State ever advise to get out earlier?

No covid beds in Central TX, McLennan/ Coryell counties unless

you need to be on a ventilator.

I posted about this before my mother-in-law and father-in-law both have covid. Both were vaccinated.

So it sounds like they're just treating them on a ER basis and then sending them home. My MIL has pneumonia now. Gave her some meds and inhaler and sent her home. Unless she has to be put on a ventilator there are no rooms.

Oh and doc wanted to give her remdesivir but couldn't since only could prescribe in-patient

Don't think the powers that be warned vaccinated to

stay away from unvaccinated enough. Ya, we knew... but don't think it reached critical mass.

My vaccinated inlaws in their 80s both got it. And they just sent my FIL to hospital with low blood ox and chest tightening.

Slate: Trump's New Big Lie: Afghanistan


Former President Donald Trump is telling lies about how he would have handled the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, opening a new avenue for Trump-dazed Republicans to attack President Joe Biden.


First, the “peace accord” that Trump’s emissaries signed with the Taliban in February 2020, in Doha, imposed only a few conditions—and the Taliban are violating none of them at the moment. The Taliban merely agreed not to allow any “individuals or groups, including al-Qaida, to use the soil of Afghanistan to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.” The accord did not bar the Taliban from fighting Afghan government troops or from capturing Afghan provinces on its own.

Second, Trump’s claim that he had “discussions with top Taliban leaders” is overstated. A few days after the signing of the accord, on the phone, through an interpreter, he had a discussion with a leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who was the Taliban’s delegate to the Doha talks. Afterward, Trump said he had a “very good” relationship with Baradar, lauded the Taliban for “killing terrorists…some very bad people,” and said of the war, “They’re looking to get this ended and we’re looking to get this ended.” A statement released by the White House said that Trump “emphasized the need to continue the reduction in violence” and “urged the Taliban to participate in intra-Afghan negotiations.” The statement said nothing about Barader’s reply, if any.
