Moving heaven and earth to get every last American in Afghanistan back to American soil

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan declined to guarantee post-August 31st evacuations for all Americans in Afghanistan.

“Unacceptable. The White House’s politically-driven timetable cannot outweigh American lives. America’s message, to our friends and to the Taliban, should be crystal clear: We will move heaven and earth to get every last American in Afghanistan back to American soil, period. That’s the only answer.”

But are the Americans also prepared to take care of those who gave their everything to help the Americans? We do hope that the allied forces shall do their utter best to save those who acted as a translator or a go-between, or who were for them provisioning and supplying food.
