American Woman Left In Afghanistan: “Everything changed and … basically, I’m dying”

The woman, Julie, phoned into a morning segment with Dana Perino and the Army Week Association’s chief operating officer, Jen Wilson, whose organization has been helping Americans to return home. Perino asked Julie what the State Department conveyed she was “supposed to do.”

“I am not doing anything,” Julie replied, sobbing. “They broke me. The United States broke me, because I am U.S. citizen.”

The comments were interspersed with broken audio as Julie explained that she traveled to the country to get married, and that things were “very bad in my life.”

“Everything changed and … basically, I’m dying,” she added. “The State [Department] — I call them so many times. I email them. They just take the phone and say, ‘I am sorry we can’t do anything for you.’ And that is the answer. I say, ‘What is going on with you guys? I’m a U.S. Citizen. … Here, I just [lost] a lot of family.”
