More than 1,000 American soldiers “are being functionally held hostage!” – Matt Gaetz Reports on the 1,000 US Soldiers Trapped in Niger as Biden's Africa Policy Implodes (VIDEO) | The Gateway expert

Representative Matt Gaetz releases stunning report on American soldiers being held hostage in Niger. May 6, 2024

This incredible story is NOT making headlines in traditional media. Why is that?

Joe Biden already handed over the Bagram air base in Afghanistan to Taliban terrorists in September 2021.

Biden left Afghanistan's Bagram airport after nearly two decades in July 2021 by cutting off the electricity and sneaking out at night without informing the Afghan base commander, who oversaw the secret departure of the Americans discovered two hours after their departure.

The Taliban quickly took control of the Bagram air base, located just 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Kabul, on August 15 and released thousands of terrorists held in prison. The Americans and Afghans left behind Taliban military equipment, uniforms, rations and even sports drinks.

The ISIS suicide bomber who killed 13 U.S. service members and 169 Afghans was released from Bagram Base prison by the Taliban. Biden left the country to the Taliban.

In April, we learned about Joe Biden's latest foreign policy disaster. The situation in Niger could surpass the withdrawal from Afghanistan – if that is possible.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has completely embarrassed the US Army Secretary and exposed Joe Biden's latest foreign policy catastrophe during questioning this week in the US House of Representatives Armed Services Committee hearing.

Gaetz exposed the latest Biden foreign policy failure – this time in Niger, Africa.

US troops are stuck in the country, reportedly without water and medicine. The military probably hid this to protect themselves from embarrassment. Deployed Americans are in limbo and unable to do their jobs and Biden's State Department is once again completely outmaneuvered.

Matt Gaetz Embarrass Army Secretary – Exposes Biden Regime Cover-up in Niger! – Embassy remains silent on hundreds of US troops trapped in Niger, reportedly without medicine and water

Secretary Wormuth and General Randy George testified before the House Armed Services Committee on April 16.

Matt Gaetz posted the report on his conference website.

US Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, a potential DEI hire, was stunned and speechless when Matt Gaetz confronted her about the captured US soldiers in Niger, a country in massive unrest.

In late April, it appeared that the US had received a trade offer from the military junta in Niger. The Russian-backed military junta in Niger will release 1,000 American soldiers held at the base in exchange for the keys to the country's $100 million US air base.

The US military will reportedly hand over an airbase worth $100 million to the military junta.

Now this…
Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) went to the House of Representatives earlier today to discuss the latest developments from Niger.

This was an incredible testimony. We've posted the transcript and video along with the congressman's full report below.

Representative Matt Gaetz: Mr. Speaker, I seek unanimous consent to include in the Congressional Record Part 2 of the interim report I prepared for the House of Representatives, entitled “Unwelcome in Niger.” Without objection. Mr. Speaker, I rise to alert this body to the deteriorating conditions in the African country of Niger and to raise concerns among military personnel and contractors. More than a thousand of them are currently essentially being held hostage in Niger. They are being used as pawns in a negotiation that leaves America on its knees before third world criminals and thugs, while our troops seek medicine, fresh water and troop rotations. How did we get here, when there are currently more than 1,100 Americans at risk in Niger?

Well, it started in March 2023. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken went to Niger, claiming it was a model of resilience, a platform for great democracy. It would be the place where America would implement its Africa strategy. A year later, almost to the day, a coup took place in Niger. And guess who overthrew the government we said was the great model of resilience? People we have trained. We trained the coup leaders to overthrow the democratically elected government of Niger.

And I know this will surprise you, but after that happens, they say they want to get rid of our bases that American taxpayers have poured over a billion dollars into. They want our service members gone. I came to this floor after hearing from some of my constituents who were stationed in Niger. After the overthrow of the government, there were no more supply flights. They said, Congressman, if we don't fix this, we're going to be out of medicine in May. Three days after I submitted part one of the report I am supplementing today, the Biden administration announced that we will be heading to Niger. A welcome sign, I'm sure, but the departure didn't actually happen. We have people who are now more than 200 days into a 180-day rotation. And while retrograde and withdrawal negotiations are underway, the government in Niger is using the well-being and health of our military as leverage to get what they want out of our government. Our troops do not receive medicines for malaria, cholesterol, blood pressure and chronic conditions. I have received the letters from the women, from the fathers of the people who are now in Niger, and they say: we know that our relatives are being extorted by the local authorities if they try to leave hundreds of dollars to even bring a present to take. pass through the airport.

We know the Russians are behind the wire. Do you know what a real American president would do? Suppose C-130s are heading to Niger today with the water, medicine and food that our troops need, they will have a full escort of fighter pilots there. If the Nigerien government or any other third world thug even tries to turn on their air defense systems, we need to show those leaders and those thugs what the target package looks like on their houses and their relatives because it should not be Americans who suffer because President Biden and Blinken are so ashamed that their strategy in Africa failed that they are willing to allow American conditions to deteriorate. They are willing to let our military spouses and family members wonder what will happen to their loved ones if their blood pressure rises and there is no blood pressure medication, or they are concerned about what will happen now that we are in May and there are not enough malaria medications are. We must always put the well-being of our people first. And today we should be supplying our troops in Niger, Africa, and we should challenge these thugs and criminals to mess with us while we do so.

This is a total shame. But saving politicians and people like Biden and Blinken from embarrassment is not worth endangering American troops.

I stand by this. I will remain in our government and the Nigerian government to ensure that our military members and their families are treated appropriately and that their concerns are raised to the highest levels of this house. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I give back.

Here is part 2 of Congressman Gaetz's interim report: “Unwelcome in Niger.”
