Biden leaves his saviour behind in Afghanistan

• After the chaotic withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and completion of the evacuation process, the news of Biden leaving behind an Afghan who saved his life broke out.

• Two US Army Black Hawk helicopters were forced to make emergency landing in a remote valley in Afghanistan in 2008. Joe Biden was one of the passengers along with two other senators.

• A rescue mission was led by the Arizona National Guard troops to evacuate the senators, and during that mission Mohammad, an Afghan interpreter had acted as a guide.

• After Taliban’s takeover in Afghanistan, Mohammad went into hiding along with his family.

• Mohammad wrote to Biden, saying “Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family. Don’t forget me here.” But sadly, was left behind to fend for himself in Afghanistan.
