Great news, everyone! The United States is back, baby, and we’re getting Afghan citizens out of harm’s way on Air Force planes. And the Defense Department couldn’t be prouder:

You love to see it. Until, that is, you squint a little bit.
Uhhhh that's not a US C-17 my dude

Guys, that’s not a US plane. https://t.co/RhUdrd5k9d

It’s not a U.S. plane. But it does have a “U” in it, which is almost as good:
You guys are trying so hard for a good PR moment. It’s not a US plane. pic.twitter.com/yEmfQ5H9aA

At least the UAE appears to have it together.

The State Department doesn’t know what year it is, and the Defense Department can’t read.
OH MY GOD This is our own Department of Defense COMPLETELY wrong about what’s going on in this picture.
It’s not even a goddamned American plane. https://t.co/TBGqwCnaei

The Biden administration is doing just great, everyone. Really fantastic.
That’s a United Arab Emirates C-17.
Competence is just oozing all over the federal government right now https://t.co/bqFo1giHF5

So now our own Department of Defense not only can’t identify aircraft by their national insignia, they don’t even bother to READ the markings on the nose. We are doomed.

If you’re gonna go down, might as well go down in flames.
You utter spoons.
