Joe Biden’s response to the train wreck in Afghanistan has been remarkably callous.
In one cruel comment, Biden brushed off the deaths of people who clung to a jet plane to face certain death.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos said, “We’ve all seen the pictures. We’ve seen those hundreds of people packed in a C-17. We’ve seen Afghans falling.”
Cutting him off, Biden responded, “That was four days ago — five days ago.”
At least 12 people at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul have died since the Taliban takeover began, Reuters reported.
Now we are beginning to learn who they were, including one young man who was just 17 years old. His body was recovered without legs or arms, but his family was able to identify him, according to VICE news.
Now Biden has been caught in a major lie.
Biden claimed there were no deaths during the chaotic withdrawal.
During the interview with ABC, Stephanopoulos said, “There’s still a lot of pandemonium outside the airport” in Kabul.
Biden naively responded, “Well there is, but look, but no one’s being killed right now.”
“God forgive me if I’m wrong about that,” Biden said, “but no one’s being killed right now.”
Biden is both incompetent and a liar. Biden is lying directly to the American people.
U.S. troops have reportedly been under fire, at least twice, while at the airport in Kabul. Two armed men were killed by US troops at the airport.

More from Western Journal:
The U.S. Air Force is investigating one specific incident where Afghan civilians died after reportedly falling out of a C-17, along with “human remains” found in the landing gear of another C-17 after it arrived at an American military base in Qatar, Politico reported.
“OSI’s review will be thorough to ensure we obtain the facts regarding this tragic incident. Our hearts go out to the families of the deceased,” the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command said, referring to the service’s Office of Special Investigations.
That is just the airport. There is certainly carnage occurring elsewhere throughout the country.
The interview with Biden had other troubling issues as well, including the fact that he did not take any responsibility.
“No,” the president said when asked if the withdrawal could have been done better.
“I don’t think it could’ve been handled in a way that — we’re going to go back in hindsight and look, but the idea that somehow there was a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens,” he added.
