There are a lot of things happening right now in our country and the world, but all eyes are on what is occurring in Afghanistan at this very moment.
Since Joe Biden botched the withdrawal from the embattled country, chaos has nearly been an everyday new story. The mainstream media has done its best to contain the catastrophe but after the news of 13 service members dying, public hangings, women being carted off by the Taliban, and service dogs left to die in cages, the Biden administration is walking on thin ice.
Now, that ice is just about to give way after reports saying that United States Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) is reportedly missing in Afghanistan.
In fact, this is even being reported by the Washington Post, which begs the question of why was Mullins there?
Apparently, Mullins was concerned about Biden’s inability to rescue Americans and our allies so he created his own rescue mission to help people evacuate Afghanistan, and now he is missing.
There are some reports floating around that Mullins has been captured, but one thing is clear. Neither the United States government nor Mullin’s office knows where he is.

The Washington Post buried this breaking news deep into the story:
As of late Tuesday, U.S. officials said they were unsure of Mullin’s location. Mullin’s office did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
“To say this is extremely dangerous is a massive understatement,” said a State Department official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive situation.
The remaining U.S. troops in Afghanistan left on Monday, bringing an end to America’s longest war. The U.S. military helped evacuate more than 120,000 people, including U.S. citizens, allies and at-risk Afghans. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday that fewer than 200 American citizens remain in Afghanistan. The department suspended embassy operations and relocated its mission to Qatar, where diplomats are trying to find ways for the remaining Americans and at-risk Afghans in the country to leave.
The State Department reissued a Level 4 travel advisory for the country on Monday urging Americans not to travel there “due to civil unrest, armed conflict, crime, terrorism, kidnapping, and COVID-19.”
The State Department declined to comment on Mullin’s travel or interactions with the embassy. The White House declined to comment on Mullin but referred to press secretary Jen Psaki’s comments from last week urging Americans not to travel to Afghanistan.
Mullin, 44, grew up in Stilwell, Okla., where he was a standout wrestler and earned a scholarship to Missouri Valley College. Injuries derailed his athletic career, and at age 20, he took over his father’s plumbing business. He was also briefly a professional mixed martial arts fighter, and after being elected to Congress in 2012, he became known on the Hill for leading intense workout classes. A member of the conservative Republican Study Committee, Mullin voted against the certification of the 2020 election results.
One would think that a missing Congressman missing in the Middle East would be front-page news, but that is not how the left wants to spin it at all.
So, why would the media want to keep this story hidden from the American people?
Well, that is an easy answer.
If this were to be all over the place it would show just how incompetent Biden and his team truly are.
If Biden had evacuated every American from Afghanistan, then there would be no need for a “rogue” evacuation.
Breaking 911 is one of the first sources that broke the story:
United States Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) has reportedly gone missing while trying to enter Afghanistan amid the Taliban takeover and chaotic U.S. departure.
According to The Washington Post, the Republican Congressman was on a ‘rogue evacuation mission,’ ignoring warnings from the State Department not to travel to the country.
Mullin reportedly contacted the embassy in Tajikistan in an attempt to move cash into Afghanistan.
“Embassy officials told Mullin they could not assist him in skirting Tajikistan’s laws on cash limits on his way to visiting one of the most dangerous places on earth,” the Post reported.
“As of late Tuesday, U.S. officials said they were unsure of Mullin’s location. Mullin’s office did not respond to multiple requests for comment,” the report continues.
This is a developing story so stay tuned for updates.
