Boebert Asks Why a List of Americans in Afghanistan Would Be Given to the Taliban When Psaki Reiterated Again Today That The ‘Biden Regime’ Doesn’t Trust Them

It was reported yesterday that US officials gave a list of Afghans and Americans to be allowed access to Kabul’s airport to the Taliban, which many are concerned could be used against those on the list.

In a recent tweet, U.S. House Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) questioned the logic in the move, bringing up White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who suggested at her press briefing again today that the Biden administration doesn’t trust them.

“Jen Psaki reiterated again that the Biden regime doesn’t trust the Taliban, yet they handed over a list of the names of all Americans in Afghanistan,” Boebert explained.

Boebert asked, “Why would you hand a sensitive list like that to people you don’t trust?”

“This is one of Biden’s most irresponsible acts yet!” Boebert declared.

Bureau Chief for The Guardian David Smith quoted Psaki from the press briefing:

“We are pulling our presence out by the 31st and that has not changed… We don’t trust the Taliban. It’s not about trust but there is a reality on the ground.”

At yesterday’s press briefing, Psaki said, “The Taliban, they’re not a group we trust, they are not our friends, we have never said that.”

President Joe Biden said he was not aware of whether the report on the list was true.

“I can’t tell you with any certainty that there’s actually been a list of names. There may have been, but I know of no circumstances. Doesn’t mean that it didn’t exist,” Biden claimed when asked about the report at a press conference yesterday.

Biden added, “It could very well have happened.”
