Joe Biden was inaugurated January 20 after the Trump-hating deep state stole the election for him and he had months to plan an evacuation that would have been risky, yes, but not a chaotic, deadly mess.
In the end, Biden and his White House flack, Jen Psaki, lied repeatedly when they said the U.S. military would remain in the country until every last American and every last Afghani ally was evacuated.
But not only did Biden leave Americans behind, he also left dozens of four-legged allies -- military contract working dogs that helped U.S. troops, among other things, avoid deadly IEDs.
Fortunately, not all Americans are cut of the same cloth as Biden, his hapless generals, and the sycophants who make up his administration.
According to CBS8, Clinton, Tenn. native Charlotte Maxwell-Jones, who is the director and founder of Kabul Small Animal Rescue in Afghanistan's capital, where she has lived for 11 years, remained behind and choose not to take an evacuation flight because she wanted to rescue the dogs first.
“They’re my responsibility and I love them and I care for them. I think there’s a less chance of recovering them if I’m not here,” said Maxwell-Jones, who noted that 50 of the approximately 130 dogs were contracted out to the U.S. military, which left them their instructions from the Pentagon and, ultimately, the commander-in-chief, Biden.
The outlet reports:
Maxwell-Jones told WVLT News that military contract dogs, like working dogs owned by the military, are trained to sniff bombs and perform crucial tasks to help neutralize threats for U.S. troops while overseas. However, she said that military contract dogs aren’t given the same priority as military dogs.
The main difference between a contract dog and a military dog is who owns it. According to Department of Defense spokesperson Eric Pahon, contract dogs are hired from outside companies to do work for the military, but the military does not own them.
In other words, the dogs perform the same missions but the contract pups aren't as high priority because they aren't DoD property. How stupid.
Meanwhile, earlier reporting claimed that the military pulled out of Kabul after leaving behind dozens of working dogs that did belong to the Pentagon, though eventually, the Defense Department corrected the record after the reports went viral.
"This photo went viral yesterday and we want to clear up some misinformation surrounding it. We are 100% certain that there are zero US military working dogs abandoned in Kabul. Zero. The US military did not leave a single MWD behind," said a Facebook post from the Military Working Dog Team Support Association.
"We share your anger, frustration and sadness knowing that any dogs were abandoned, but at this time, we cannot verify what day this photo was taken or who is ultimately responsible for these dogs. What we can verify is that these are NOT US military working dogs being abandoned in Kabul," the post continued.
That said, the Biden regime is doing all it can to make Maxwell-Jones' job more difficult, as CBS8 noted:
Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a temporary suspension on the importing of dogs from Afghanistan, since it is a high-risk country for dog rabies. However, Maxwell-Jones is trying to get an exemption so she can evacuate dogs from the country. If an exemption isn’t granted, the Clinton native said those animals would go to Canada for six months to quarantine.
This is the same regime that has stranded American citizens in Afghanistan after lying and saying they would all be evacuated, so we're not hopeful this dog situation will be worked out any time soon.
But in the meantime, kudos to Maxwell-Jones for having more principle and sense of ethics than the entire Biden regime combined.
