Defense officials say they’ll save 5,000 a day from Kabul but ‘up to 40,000’ Americans remain stranded: Taliban fighters close in on airport after taking ALL access points which forces US troops to negotiate with them on who gets in



  • Defense officials claimed on Tuesday they’d remove between 5,000 and 9,000 people on US planes every day
  • But only 1,400 have been removed in the three days since the Taliban claimed the city of Kabul on Sunday 
  • Overnight, only 700 people were removed – including 165 Americans – on seven C-17 jets
  • Just one plane was used to ferry 640 people out of Kabul on Sunday so it remains unclear why only 100 are being boarded at a time now
  • There are now grave concerns over how the remaining US citizens in various parts of the country will get out
  • The Taliban has set up an entry point at the airport in Kabul and they now control all roads leading to it 
  • Former CIA Director and retired General David Petraeus called the race to evacuate ‘a Dunkirk moment’ 
  • Bush’s Asst. Secretary of State Robert Charles said between 15,000 and 40,000 Americans are stranded 
  • John Kirby, the Pentagon’s spokesman, said on CNN that between 5,000 and 10,000 US citizens are in Kabul alone but Charles said thousands more are further afield in Herat, Kandahar and Jalalabad 
  • Trump says Biden’s shambolic effort makes Vietnam look ‘like child’s play’ 
  • Biden spoke briefly on Monday but he didn’t take questions and he has now gone back to Camp David
