They have some nerve….
Biden and his cabinet are responsible for the greatest foreign policy disaster in the last 20 years, and have taken absolutely no responsibility for the crisis they created.
This would be bad enough, but it doesn’t end there—far from it.
Sources claim The State Department is actually charging people roughly $2,000 per ticket out of Afghanistan…….they’re actually charging their own citizens that they abandoned to get out of a country that they collapsed.
Can someone please tell me what the point of The State Department is if they can’t even get their own citizens out of a country rocked by poor state choices for the last 20 years?
Why do we even have this department at this point, if this is what they’re currently doing:
The U.S. Bureau of Diplomatic Service is asking abandoned Americans in Afghanistan to sign a promissory note for up to $2000 for a flight back home!!! Are they charging 65k un-vetted Afghans we are flying home! This is insanity from @joebiden ! #americalast #americanslast pic.twitter.com/wSG0DdHcci

The Biden admin said nearly 4 hours ago it had no intention of seeking reimbursement from people fleeing Afghanistan.
This is what the form that Americans are REQUIRED to complete to secure their flight out of Afghanistan says RIGHT NOW: pic.twitter.com/IYAYQFYJJW

Daily Caller points out:
However, the online form American citizens are directed to fill out to secure their evacuation from Afghanistan continued to state well into Thursday evening that they travelers will have to pay their own way out of the country.
“Repatriation flights are not free,” Question 14 of the form stated when accessed by the DCNF around 10 p.m. Thursday, over two-and-a-half hours after Price issued his statement.
“All passengers will need to reimburse the U.S. Government for the flight. A promissory note for the full cost of the flight, which may exceed $2000 per person, must be signed by each adult passenger before boarding,” the form stated.
$2000 for an evacuation flight out of afghanistan… still cheaper than many ambulance rides 🤦♀️ https://t.co/gopq5IQqmb

The Federalist adds:
Costs, the site claims, could differ depending on where evacuation flights go but evacuees are encouraged to pay for and “leave on the first transport they are able and eligible to board.”
As of Thursday afternoon, Biden’s State Department Spokesman Ned Price still could not provide reporters with the number of Americans who are stuck in Afghanistan and were left at the mercy of the Taliban.
