“Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family,” said an Afghan interpreter named Mohammed. “Don’t forget me here.”
But President Joe Biden did “forget” about Mohammed, an Afghan interpreter who helped rescue him in 2008, a Wall Street Journal piece reveals.
“Thirteen years ago, Afghan interpreter Mohammed helped rescue then- Sen. Joe Biden and two other senators stranded in a remote Afghanistan valley after their helicopter was forced to land in a snowstorm,” WSJ reports. “Now, Mohammed is asking President Biden to save him.”
“Mohammed and his four children are hiding from the Taliban after his yearslong attempt to get out of Afghanistan got tangled in the bureaucracy,” the Journal adds. “They are among countless Afghan allies who were left behind when the U.S. ended its 20-year military campaign in Afghanistan on Monday.”
The story about the Afghan interpreter’s efforts to aid the U.S. Army in rescuing Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Chuck Hagel was recounted by the publication.
“Mohammed was a 36-year-old interpreter for the U.S. Army in 2008 when two U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopters made an emergency landing in Afghanistan during a blinding snowstorm,” the Journal notes. “On board were three U.S. senators: Mr. Biden, the Delaware Democrat, John Kerry, (D., Mass.) and Chuck Hagel, (R., Neb.).”
“As a private security team with the former firm Blackwater and U.S. Army soldiers monitored for any nearby Taliban fighters, the crew sent out an urgent call for help,” the report continued. “At Bagram Air Field, Mohammed jumped in a Humvee with a Quick Reaction Force from the 82nd Airborne Division and drove hours into the nearby mountains to rescue them.”
Needless to say, the rescue effort was successful; unlike that of President Joe Biden, who has broken his pledge and stranded dozens of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies behind in the treacherous nation, which is now in the grip of the murderous and vengeful Taliban.
