The Taliban in Afghanistan continue to escalate


Although little covered by the West these days, Afghanistan continues to regress. On Saturday, the ruling Taliban ordered all women to cover themselves fully in public. It is a tragedy for the women and men of Afghanistan, and a reminder of the nightmare for Americans still trapped there.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently testified on Capitol Hill that 126 Americans remain in Afghanistan. He added that 37 people were seeking to leave and were being assisted by the State Department. A congressional source told us the figure may underestimate the number of US citizens who want out, as some want to leave but need to get their house in order first.
