Biden tells Americans to book their own travel out of Israel despite airline cancellations

 October 10, 2023

President Joe Biden has left Americans to book their own travel out of Israel despite many airlines canceling flights from the country following an outbreak of terror attacks.

Biden's Monday announcement left little help to Americans stuck in the barrage of missile attacks that started Saturday.

The statement

“For American citizens who are currently in Israel, the State Department is providing consular assistance as well as updated security alerts. For those who desire to leave, commercial flights and ground options are still available,” Biden wrote.

“Please also take sensible precautions in the days ahead and follow the guidance of local authorities," he added.

Trump speaks

"These Hamas attacks are a disgrace and Israel has every right to defend itself with overwhelming force," former President Donald Trump wrote in a statement Sunday.

"Sadly, American taxpayer dollars helped fund these attacks, which many reports are saying came from the Biden administration," he argued.

11 Americans killed

The news came as it was confirmed that 11 Americans were killed in Israel, with additional deaths expected and confirmed reports of American hostages taken by Hamas.

The president confirmed "that at least 11 American citizens were among those killed—many of whom made a second home in Israel," Townhall reported.

"I have directed my team to work with their Israeli counterparts on every aspect of the hostage crisis, including sharing intelligence and deploying experts from across the United States government to consult with and advise Israeli counterparts on hostage recovery efforts," Biden said concerning reports of hostages.

The attacks by Hamas have already resulted in over 800 confirmed deaths and over 2,000 injuries. Hundreds have also been reported killed by the Israeli military in its attacks to retaliate against Hamas forces in the Gaza Strip.

The latest attacks have once again shown the Biden administration weak in its response, failing to offer appropriate support to Americans in need around the world and leaving room for enemies to continue operations without a response from America's top leaders. The Hamas attacks will instead be stopped by Israel, with America likely watching from the sidelines while Americans remain in harm's way.
