WATCH: Psaki Throws Out Insane Statements About The Afghanistan Crisis

This past Tuesday during the White House press conference, Jen Psaki, the White House Press Secretary, was intensely questioned about Old Uncle Joe’s handling of the Afghanistan situation.

Psaki stated that the success of the operation to evacuate U.S. citizens heavily depended “on continued coordination with the Taliban,” going on to add that Uncle Joe has already requested a series of contingency plans from officials at the Pentagon.

She would later go on to say that the evacuation missions would stop before the deadline on August 31st so that there was enough time to pull all U.S. forces out of the country. Psaki stated that she did not know if the deadline was set for midnight on August 30th or 31st, nor did she know if it was based on U.S. time or Afghanistan time.

When pressed with more questions about at least one example of a person who was fleeing Afghanistan that had ties to ISIS, Psaki stated that the administration was using a “stringent vetting process, which includes background checks.”

When forced to react to the people who are still in Afghanistan who are now saying that they are entirely “stranded,” Psaki snottily told the press to give her the contact details of any persons who were in Afghanistan and still having a hard time getting out.

Watch:

“I would say that this is now on track to be the largest airlift in U.S. history,” stated Psaki. “And that is bringing American citizens out. It is bringing our Afghan partners out. It is bringing allies out. So, no, I would not say that is anything but a success.”

At a later time during the same press conference, Psaki seemed to suggest that some Americans could, in fact, be left behind:

REPOTER: Okay. Say after the withdrawal is done, it’s declared, it’s done, everyone’s out, if one U.S. citizen was suddenly discovered saying, “Hey, I really want to get out and I’m stuck,” who knows where, somewhere in Afghanistan or in Kabul, he’s got any problem, would this trigger a diplomatic, military, all hands on deck type thing to get to that person out, whatever the date?

PSAKI: Our commitment continues to be to U.S. citizens. If they want to leave, we will help get them out.

REPORTER: No matter of what the date?

PSAKI: Again, we expect there could be some, but I’m not going to get into it further. Go ahead.
