The Biden administration has botched its response to the Afghanistan crisis in so many ways it has become hard to keep count.
The incompetence continued Tuesday with a tweet from Biden’s Department of Defense. The tweet included pictures that apparently showed “Afghan civilians board[ing] @usairforce C-17 Globemasters at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan.”

At a quick glance, the tweet seems innocent enough. However, a closer investigation would reveal that the C-17s pictured do not appear to be American.
One Twitter user zoomed in on the pictures of the aircraft to show the words “UAE Air Force” on the side. This would seem to be a clear indication that they are not, in fact, U.S. Air Force C-17s.

Other Twitter users also noticed the error and expressed concern and frustration that the DOD would make such a blatant error.

Sorry, but the C17 has United Arab Emirates flag and it’s Air Force logo
