Now this I agree with. We fucked them (again) in Syria, now we’ve fucked them (again) in Afghanistan with piss poor planning and a total fuckup. We didn’t even ramp up the visa system to take into account the huge backlog from the prior administration and the anticipated numbers trying to flee as we left.
Only 3% of the approved SIV visa holders were evacuated. Ramping up the process would not have changed the outcome. Had they approved 300% of what they did approve then only 1% of approved SIV visa holders would have been evacuated.
