On the heels of a story where 80,000 ragheads from Afghanistan (mostly young men I would imagine) have applied to come to America.
Don’t believe me? Look at the image below:
More than 80,000 Afghans want visas to come to the United States, according to an August 16 report in the Washington Post.
Columnist Josh Rogin reported:
The State Department is also dealing with more than 80,000 visa applications for Afghans who worked with the U.S. government or find themselves at risk, the official said.
The 80,000 population is in addition to the more than 2,000 Afghans who have already landed in the United States and is in addition to “an estimated 10,000 U.S. citizens in the country … [including] dual nationals or children of Americans who may not have the proper passport or visas,” Rogin reported.
Then we see this C-17 filled with almost 700 ragheads crammed into it in a way that, if they were Americans the plane would have never taken off for “safety reasons.”
Not too many women here, either.
That’s believed to be among the most people ever flown in the C-17, a massive military cargo plane that has been operated by the U.S. and its allies for nearly three decades. Flight tracking software shows the plane belongs to the 436th Air Wing, based at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
The C-17, using the call sign Reach 871, was not intending to take on such a large load, but panicked Afghans who had been cleared to evacuate pulled themselves onto the C-17’s half-open ramp, one defense official said.
Instead of trying to force those refugees off the aircraft, “the crew made the decision to go,” a defense official told Defense One. “Approximately 640 Afghan civilians disembarked the aircraft when it arrived at its destination,” the defense official said.
Word of the flight spread across late Sunday in the United States when audio from the crew estimating they were carrying 800 passengers was posted online. A defense official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the true number was about 640 people.
The flight was one of several that was able to take off with hundreds of people aboard, and some of the others may have had an even larger load than 640, the official said.
In 2013, a C-17 evacuated 670 people fleeing a typhoon in the Philippines. Like that evacuation, the Afghans flown from Kabul to Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, sat on the floor of the plane’s capacious hold. The procedure is known as “floor loading”; the passengers hang onto cargo straps run from wall to wall serving as makeshift seatbelts, according to a source familiar with the plane’s operating manuals.
