The back story, the organizational structure that enabled the group to assemble, be funded, and logistically supplied and deployed is remarkable, worthy of serious study.

More to the point… it should worry ANY would-be tyrant or group of wanna-be tyrants as to just who and what is waiting on the other side of that line they are just itching to cross….. just sayin’. DOL/RLTW

They are perfectly capable of looking bad without any outside interference.

+1 So many quotables. HH6 digs that one out of the cabinet during the winter more than I do.



Given the apparent perfidy & treachery of Blinken I'm still concerned for their safety.

Well... nice piece here by a Breiitbart girl.

Pineapple Express to Launch Phase II for Americans Left in Afghanistan

Quote:
“We’re having to move from what was a very network-centric starfish kind of thing to way more of a deliberate recovery. That focuses on two things, moving people to safety, getting them immediately out of harm’s way from retribution and targeting and then ultimately some of them to freedom,” said Scott Mann, a retired Green Beret who co-founded the Pineapple Express.
He also goes on with the interviewer as to how the 'pineapple' recognition signal came about, as well as how they got the other SOF factions roped in.
Pretty good piece.

An excellent movie. Have it on DVD. (I especially liked the retribution delivered to "Sir" Edward at the end.)

Apparently one of the TF members is an alum of nearby UW-La Crosse.
Write-up in the La Crosse Tribune here.
Quote:
A UW-La Crosse alum and former Green Beret with the U.S. Army Special Forces is helping rescue hundreds of Americans, Afghan soldiers and other U.S. allies from the oppressive grip of the Taliban.

Zac Lois, ’06, is a member of Task Force Pineapple, a volunteer group of veterans coordinating movements for U.S. troops and allies on the ground in Afghanistan as they attempt to navigate to safety, often under the cover of darkness.

To date, the team has helped evacuate more than 1,000 people, many of whom took flights out of Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. However, thousands remain trapped in the capital city, which fell to Taliban in the days after the U.S. military withdrawal.

“The people we’re trying to evacuate … we’ve had relationships with them for a long time. Some of them are Afghan people we’ve served with in combat,” says Lois, who had deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan before leaving the military in 2015. “In the military, we say: ‘Leave no man or woman behind.’ That extends to this as well.”
