Mark Green (R-TN), a veteran who served in Afghanistan xpressed a lot of concern about this situation on Laura Ingraham’s show last night, explaining that he sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken after he received information from a source that Afghans being held at a Virginia military base, Fort Pickett, had “free rein” of the army base and were even leaving using ride-sharing apps like Uber without anyone stopping them, despite not being fully vetted. He also said that the military had no authority to “arrest or stop” anyone from leaving. He demanded answers from Blinken, stating that this obviously posed a concerning national security risk. https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/09/09/gop-rep-reveals-grave-national-security-concerns-about-unvetted- afghan-evacuees-leaving-us-army-bases-n440238 PROBLEMS BY BASE Fort McCoy - Wisconsin Background on Base and Refugees 2021/10/08 Report: Biden Turns Fort McCoy into ‘Small City’ for Afghans with ‘Culturally Appropriate Clothing, Food’ https://yournews.com/2021/10/08/2234156/report-biden-turns-fort-mccoy-into-small-city-for-afghans/ Excerpt: Breitbart: President Joe Biden’s administration has turned Fort McCoy in Monroe County, Wisconsin, into a “small city” for Afghans brought to the United States, including “culturally appropriate clothing and food,” a new report details.

On 29 February 2020, the U.S. and the Taliban signed a peace agreement titled the Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan,[2] with provisions including the withdrawal of all regular American and NATO troops from Afghanistan, a Taliban pledge to prevent al-Qaeda from operating in areas under Taliban control, and talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.[3] The deal was supported by China, Pakistan, and Russia,[4] and unanimously endorsed by the United Nations Security Council.[5] The Trump administration agreed to an initial reduction of its force level from 13,000 to 8,600 by July 2020, followed by a full withdrawal by 1 May 2021 if the Taliban kept its commitments.[6] The Biden administration announced in April 2021 that it would continue the withdrawal beyond the initial deadline, with an expected completion date by 11 September 2021.[7] The Biden administration later announced that despite the withdrawal, it would keep 650 U.S. troops in Afghanistan to defend the U.S. Embassy in Kabul and defend the Hamid Karzai International Airport alongside Turkish troops.[8] On 8 July, Biden shifted the U.S. withdrawal deadline to 31 August.[9] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withdrawal_of_United_States_troops_from_Afghanistan_(2020%E2%80%932021) CNN 2021/07/08 Biden defends pulling US out of Afghanistan as Taliban advances: 'We did not go to Afghanistan to nation-build' Kevin Liptak-Profile-Image By Kevin Liptak https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/08/politics/biden-afghanistan-speech/index.html 2021/07/14 Biden meets with general who stepped down as commander in Afghanistan.
