Nothing is a priority with the Democrats except grabbing and holding on to power.

A spokesman for America’s Department of Defence (DoD) dismissed concerns about the fate of military working dogs likely left behind in Afghanistan.
DoD’s Eric Pahon was quoted yesterday as saying their “priority mission was the evacuation of U.S. citizens, SIV and vulnerable Afghans”. Not animals.

Dysfunctional Dems of Biden‘s America
Really sad and heartless. They screwed up on all fronts.
Democrats in the White House and Pentagon have failed the stranded Americans bigly, failed their Afghan allies, and failed pet cats and working dogs in Afghanistan.
One, Americans stranded in Afghanistan
There have been warnings that after the Taliban’s Aug 31 deadline for American troop withdrawal, any USA citizens still left in the country are considered as being “behind enemy lines”.
They could be held hostage like those embassy Americans in Tehran after the Iranian revolution. It is looking to be a fubar similar to the 1979 debacle by another weak Democrat past president, Jimmy Carter.

Two, SIVs abandoned in Afghanistan
SIVs are Special Immigrant Visas and not to be confused with SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicles).
Meanwhile MWVs are Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles – and also armoured cars in Taliban hands courtesy of Biden – not to be confused with a close acronym MWDs referring to Military Working Dogs belonging to the fled Americans.
Biden’s DoD abandoned more than 3,000 high mobility MWVs, i.e. the Humvee, as early Christmas presents for the Taliban.
As for the canine MWDs, one worries.
About the SIVs, Biden clearly abandoned a number of the visa holders too. (Note: SIV is given to Afghans previously working for the Americans in order to fast track their emigration to the USA.)
Ahmad Naser, who had previously served as a translator with the American forces, was on his way to the airport yesterday when his car was (mis)targeted in a drone strike.
When the Pentagon is not killing their own allies through friendly fire, they’re still turning away those other allied Afghans desperate to leave the country.
Three, were the army dogs evacuated?
The small dogs and cats waiting to be evacuated largely belonged to American embassy staff and independent defence contractors.
Pets under the care of Kabul Small Animal Rescue are to be differentiated from the MWDs.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby (above) for example was asked about civilian casualties — ten members of an extended family, which included six Afghani children, who were killed in Sunday’s drone strike.
Kirby’s response: “We are investigating and assessing …”
Now about the dogs. Kirby clarified that the small animals in crates – seen in the viral photo from Kabul airport circulating in social media – were not MWDs.
But more tellingly, however, he has yet to provide any assurance that no American army dog has been left behind.
