WASHINGTON —The Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday denied U.S. landing rights for a charter plane carrying more than 100 Americans and U.S. green card holders evacuated from Afghanistan, organizers of the flight said.

"They will not allow a charter on an international flight into a U.S. port of entry," Bryan Stern, a founder of non-profit group Project Dynamo, said of the department's Customs and Border Protection agency.

Stern spoke to Reuters from aboard a plane his group chartered from Kam Air, a private Afghan airline, that he said had been sitting for 14 hours at Abu Dhabi airport after arriving from Kabul with 117 people, including 59 children.

Okay, I suspected it and now I know it’s true. For some reason, they want those people dead.

Perhaps Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis should allow them to land in Florida and tell the feds to shove it...

I just thought the same thing. They want them dead.

Why?

what do they know and what don’t they want us to know about Afghanistan?

There are no limits to what our beloved communist rulers will do to show who's the boss here...

And why not?
Is there any slightest indication that the American people would either stop,seriously attempt to stop, or raise hell in the streets about this?

Our communist masters are living large and in total control...
This is just the barebones beginning...

When Americans realize how bad things are, they will band together, once again, at Concord Bridge and chant:
Bow down!... Obey!... Snitch!...

I’d take that so-called correction with a grain of salt considering the source.
