Photo of last American leaving Afghanistan goes viral

Taking the press — and virtually the entire world — by surprise, it was announced by the Biden administration on Monday that the final U.S. troops had been evacuated from Afghanistan and America’s war in the country was officially over.

According to Fox News, the last soldier on the ground was photographed walking onto the transport plane. That particular soldier happened to be Maj. Gen. Chris Donahue, the commander of the U.S. Army’s famous 82nd Airborne Division.

The announcement that America no longer has a troop presence in the Taliban-occupied nation was jarring for many, as it happened a day before the Aug. 31 deadline that was originally announced.

CENTCOM Commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie confirmed the worst in his announcement of the final pullout, admitting that not all of the people, including Americans, were able to make it to the airport for evacuation, which immediately sparked intense backlash.

“There’s a lot of heartbreak associated with this departure,” McKenzie said during the announcement. “We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out.”

In the wake of the formal end to America’s involvement in the country, which resulted in the Taliban scoring nearly $90 billion in cutting-edge U.S. military equipment and weapons, a network of U.S. military veterans are using their contacts and sources on the ground to usher people to safety, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The mission to rescue Afghan allies was dubbed Task Force Pineapple, and it has resulted in hundreds of people being saved, though their mission clearly became increasingly difficult when the remaining U.S. troops were pulled out on Monday.

Now, all eyes are on the Biden administration to see when — and how — they plan on rescuing the remaining Americans in Afghanistan, which potentially number in the hundreds. Many have expressed doubts that it’s possible to save them at this point in time.

He has NO Intention of getting American or Ally out. He’s in China & the Taliban’s back pocket. And the Taliban wants them their for leverage as hostages to have the USA follow their demands. Biden & the Dims don’t understand what most of us and the Police know. YOU CAN NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS because they won’t hold true to the agreements themselves but expect you to bow down to their every whim. The US of A is NO ONES Lap Dog.
