There’s a humanitarian nightmare happening right now outside the Kabul airport.

There have been thousands trying to get into the airport but the Taliban are ringing the airport, beating some of the people on road, so it’s a terrifying gauntlet.


But even if they get past the Taliban and have their paperwork, there are so many people packed outside the airport gates, you still have to get through all those people.

The Long War Journal’s Bill Roggio reported on some of the dangers there yesterday, with shots being fired outside the gates.


There are people trying to do heroic things there on the ground, having been left to deal with a horrible situation by the Biden administration. State Department official Wendy Sherman is saying right now on Fox that people are getting through despite it all.

There has been a lot of striking video over this debacle starting with the people clinging to the wheels of the C-17 which seems a long time ago at this point.

But there was a video being shared today that was especially affecting. You may know who Matt Zeller is because we ran a story on him Monday, he’s the former CIA analyst and veteran who called out Biden on MSNBC when they tried to clean up Biden’s speech.


“I feel like I watched a different speech than the rest of you guys. I was appalled. There was such a profound bold-faced lie in that speech. The idea we planned for every contingency? I have been personally trying to tell this administration since it took office. I have been trying to tell our government for years this was coming. We sent them plan after plan on how to evacuate these people. Nobody listened to us,” Zeller said.

Zeller has been gathering a lot of information on what has been happening on the ground. He said that people at the gates were passing babies and little kids forward through the crowd to ensure that they got in, ahead of the parents still in the line.

A truly heart-wrenching video. Sky News reported the parents were throwing their children over the airport barrier to the British and Americans, begging them to save them. Many of the parents are those who worked for or helped the West but they are putting their kids first to at least save them.
