Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan was a complete disaster.

13 American soldiers were killed by a suicide bomber.

It now turns out that the United States has no clue how many Americans were left behind in Afghanistan.

Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Gen. Mark Milley testified, “I’ll be candid; I don’t know the exact number of Americans that were left behind because the starting number was never clear.”

The Washington Examiner reported:

The top brass ordered by President Joe Biden to abruptly evacuate Afghanistan had no clue how many Americans were still hiding in or near Kabul as the Taliban took back control, and do now know how many were left behind.

In remarkable testimony on Tuesday, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff also told Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) that the administration did know how many Afghan staff were abandoned but was clear that many were subsequently killed “in pretty brutal ways.”

Milley said that while U.S. forces were supposed to know, “That was always a difficult number for us in Department Defense to get a hold of and I think it’s true at the tactical level and operational level as well. And I’ll be candid, I don’t know the exact number of Americans that were left behind because the starting number was never clear. Same is true of at-risk Afghans SIVs, the commandos, other Afghans that served with us. Those numbers varied so widely that they were quite inaccurate, as best I could tell at the time. So I would just say I’m not sure even today about the accuracy of all those numbers.”

Smith asked what might have happened to those abandoned in the Biden orders.

“I think some were killed, Afghans. I don’t know about the Americans. I don’t think Americans were, but I think some of the Afghans were tracked down that worked with us. And I think some of them were killed in, and I’m pretty certain some of them in pretty brutal ways. Some managed to escape through various means. Others have just laid low and are keeping their heads down,” added Milley.
