Clearly Nothing to See Here

Biden Administration Denies Bipartisan Lawmakers From Inspecting Afghan Refugee Holding Facility (lifezette.com)

This is actually quite odd. I honestly can’t think of a reason why they’d do this. And I’m not being sarcastic.

Representative Darrel Issa for California, one of the delegation members said the group included House Foreign Affairs Committee members. Yet, the White House still denied them access to Camp As Sayliyah. 

Speaking to reporters, Issa said officials “never let us meet with the 2,300 remaining America-bound refugees, maybe some of whom are American citizens and others who are green card holders. We think the number one classified piece that they were protecting is called embarrassment. Many of these people have stories of the difficulty getting out, the lack of cooperation or help by the State Department, and now they find themselves being artificially held longer in some cases. We think it’s just that they don’t want people telling their stories.”

Hmm. Embarrassment. Possibly. There’s a ton of stuff out there making the Biden Administration look bad. I guess they don’t feel like they need one more, and this one they can stop.

But, honestly, is it likely to be that bad compared to all the other things? Hmm…maybe it is. I dunno.
