President Biden Leaves American Citizens STRANDED in Sudan After Coup Attempt

On Thursday, the Biden administration’s Khartoum embassy told American citizens stranded in Sudan during an attempted coup that they were alone and could not facilitate evacuations.

According to Politico, the security situation in Sudan’s capital nosedived as two rival generals engaged in a week of fighting. Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, in charge of the nation’s armed forces, and Gen. Mohammed Hamdan Dalago, who leads the Rapid Support Forces military group, are currently locked in a battle for control of the country, leading many stranded, including embassy staff who are sheltering in place at the compound eight miles from the international airport.

Instead of making the journey and coordinating emergency flights, the embassy has recommended Americans stranded in the war-torn city stay put and hide.

 

“Security Alert The Embassy continues to closely monitor the situation in Khartoum and surrounding areas, where there is ongoing fighting, gunfire, and security forces activity.  There have also been reports of assaults, home invasions, and looting.  U.S. citizens are strongly advised to remain indoors, shelter in place until further notice and avoid travel to the U.S. embassy.  The U.S. embassy remains under a shelter in place order and cannot provide emergency consular services. Due to the uncertain security situation in Khartoum and closure of the airport, it is not currently safe to undertake a U.S. government-coordinated evacuation of private U.S. citizens.”

The U.S. embassy instructed Americans to establish communications with them online and to avoid danger otherwise.

“- Remain sheltered in place. – Attempt to stay at the lower levels of your location, stay away from windows and attempt to keep away from roadways. – Monitor local media for updates. – Review Department of State’s Travel Advisory for Sudan and the most recent Security Alerts.”

However, DoD spokesperson Lt. Col. Garron Garn confirmed that the U.S. positioned troops to go in if necessary.

“The Department of Defense, through U.S. Africa Command, is monitoring the situation in Sudan and conducting prudent planning for various contingencies. As part of this, we are deploying additional capabilities nearby in the region for contingency purposes related to securing and potentially facilitating the departure of U.S. Embassy personnel from Sudan, if circumstances require it,”

The Biden administration is attempting to avoid a situation reminiscent of the evacuation of Kabul and Afghanistan, that, according to the State Department, got 13 U.S. servicemembers killed, left 14,000 Americans behind, and abandoned 80 billion dollars of military equipment to the Taliban.

To that end, democrat senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Politico that there was a plan in place but stayed tight-lipped on the classified details.

“Arrangements have been made. They’re sheltering in place and currently all secure, all accounted for and in communication with them. There’s a whole-of-government effort to figure out exactly how to make sure that they continue in safety. We’re very much on top of it.”

U.S. military intervention is looking increasingly likely, but given the Biden administration’s record, how effective it will be is anyone’s guess.
