Republicans Silent As Biden Gets 21,600 People Out Of Afghanistan In A Single Day

President Biden is getting twice as many people out of Afghanistan as national security officials set as their goal, and Republicans are saying nothing.

The White House provided new numbers on evacuations to PoliticusUSA:

From August 23 at 3:00 AM EDT to August 24 at 3:00 AM EDT, a total of approximately 21,600 people were evacuated from Kabul.  This is the result of 37 US military flights (32 C-17s and 5 C-130s) which carried approximately 12,700 evacuees, and 57 coalition flights which carried 8,900 people.

Since August 14, the U.S. has evacuated and facilitated the evacuation of approximately 58,700 people. Since the end of July, we have re-located approximately 63,900 people.

John Harwood noted that this is two to four times higher than the goal set by intelligence officials:

Nearly 64,000 People Evacuated Without A Single Life Lost

Republicans have been criticizing Biden for the Afghanistan airlift while killing hundreds of people a day in states where they are in charge of government with COVID.

It is not surprising that as the Biden airlift operation has ramped up, the only thing that Republicans and Fox News can do is absurdly claim that Americans are being stranded in Afghanistan.

The GOP was already planning an entire 2022 attack ad campaign around the airlift, but it those ads may backfire as, at the current pace, the US airlift will be a massive success.
