Speaking to Iraq War veteran Joe Saboe on Wednesday night, Stinchfield said: “I can tell you that didn’t happen under President Trump and I know there are a lot of people on the left who want to try to blame President Trump. He really wanted to leave Afghanistan, he was really frustrated that he couldn’t get out, but he didn’t pull out because he knew it would happen. In fact we all did it, I called him on this program, my 12 year old son knew about it, so I have Americans there who are stuck.
“For me, it’s a hostage-taking, but Joe, I appreciate that you are working to get them out, I really do,” he added.
“The veterans, you know, I’m right, and our friends are over there,” Mr. Saboe said. “We have been monitoring this closely for several administrations, and we know that the Trump administration’s efforts here were quite weak, that they were trying to limit the number of people who would come out. “
“There were some coordination issues,” added Mr. Saboe as Stinchfield tried to cut him off.
“Joe… I’m already running out of time,” said the host. As Mr. Saboe continued to speak, Stinchfield appeared to address the Newsmax control room, shouting, “Cut it off please, cut it now!” “
Mr. Saboe quickly disappeared from the show, his stream appearing to have been deleted by the show’s producers.
“You’re not going to blame President Trump on my show,” said Stinchfield, now alone on screen.
“It doesn’t happen. Now I appreciate the work you are doing. God bless you for being a veteran. God bless you for trying to get the Americans out, but do not participate in this program, and take the arguments of the left and blame President Trump. It doesn’t help anyone. The Biden administration screwed this up from the start. You know what, I know that, the country knows it, and you call them non-hostages, I don’t know what you don’t call them hostages, they’re stuck in Afghanistan, with a country overrun by terrorists who are ready to kill them all. I’m crazy about this man, I really am.
Stinchfield posted the clip to his Twitter account.
Mr. Saboe, 36, was an infantry officer in the army. He now coaches a youth football team and is the CEO of a small start-up, Le New York Times reported.
As the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan drew to a close, Mr Saboe joined a group of hundreds of veterans and volunteer citizens trying to force the Americans and Afghan allies out of Kabul before the airlift ended. .
The group of 200 volunteers is called Team America and is one of many grassroots efforts that were launched during the troop withdrawal.
The groups have helped thousands of people escape the Taliban regime.
“It was born out of desperation,” said Mr. Saboe Le New York Times. “A lot of us knew people who needed to get out, and there wasn’t anyone in the US government who seemed to be giving advice. There was almost no coordination.
On Tuesday, Democratic Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, told Secretary of State Antony Blinken at a hearing that “the execution of the US withdrawal was clearly and fatally flawed.”
At least 175 people, including 13 American soldiers, were killed in a terrorist attack at Kabul airport claimed by Isis-K.
“A full account of the US response to this crisis is not complete without the Pentagon, especially when it comes to understanding the complete collapse of the US-trained and funded Afghan army,” Mr Menendez said.
“There is no evidence that staying longer would have made the Afghan security forces or the Afghan government more resilient or self-sufficient,” Blinken said. “If 20 years, hundreds of billions of dollars in support, equipment, training weren’t enough, why another year, five more, ten more?
During the last two months of the US presence in the country, approximately 123,000 people, including 6,000 Americans, have been airlifted out of the country.
