Sen. Tom Cotton calls Psaki’s remark a “slap in the face” to those stranded there.
This is just not true.

An American woman is stranded in Kabul, all alone.
When she tried to get to the airport, the Taliban beat her for the crime of traveling without a male escort.
She has heard nothing from the State Department—only from free lance volunteers a world away.

I can only imagine how our military feels about this, we all know they want the green light to go get our people! God bless our military and prayers for all those waiting for help!
