With Taliban's Takeover, A New Drive To Rescue West's Afghan Partners
And now, an update on the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.
Reports from the area outside Karzai Airport describe ongoing chaos and danger for those who are attempting to leave the country, as the US and other countries rush to evacuate their citizens and Afghans who assisted NATO forces over the last 20 years.
