NSA Jake Sullivan: We Are Communicating with the Taliban Through Military Channels

‘They need to understand that Americans and those who have worked with us need safe passage to the airport’

EXCERPT:

SULLIVAN: “We’re engaging through military channels with the Taliban. The Taliban, obviously, to a considerable extent are integrated with the Haqqani Network. Our effort is with the Taliban military commanders currently in charge of security in Kabul, because they need to understand that Americans and those who have worked with us need safe passage to the airport. And if that passage is disrupted or operations are interfered with, the United States will deliver a swift and forceful response.”
