President Biden didn’t deny that U.S. officials provided the Taliban with a list of Americans and Afghanistan allies to work with the Taliban for evacuation purposes.
Biden held a press conference on Thursday following the horrific suicide bombing at the Kabul airport gates in Afghanistan that killed at least 13 U.S. service members, over 90 Afghans, and caused numerous serious injuries.
During the press conference, Biden was asked if such a list was provided to the Taliban and he said, “there may have been.”
Such a list could essentially serve as a “kill list” to hunt down the Americans and Afghan allies who are behind enemy lines.

Some news outlets reported on Politico’s story.

Critics slammed the decision to give such vital information to the Taliban on social media.
If true, this qualifies as borderline treason. We need to find out who is responsible for giving the Taliban a hit list and they need to go to prison. https://t.co/WTkeRytHmN

U.S. officials leaned into the Taliban for safety by handing them lists of Americans and Afghans that were evacuating.
Let me repeat: U.S. officials entrusted the Taliban with a kill list of Americans and Afghans.

Good morning to everyone, except our deranged leaders, who gave the Taliban an American ‘Kill List.’
