Dem Rep. Moulton on Americans, Afghan Allies Left In Afghanistan: ‘Many of Them Have a Price on Their Heads’

‘The number one first step is to get these Americans and the Afghan allies that we left behind out to freedom and safety’

EXCERPT:

MOULTON: "Well, we don’t know all the details, Stephanie. I heard a report of a teacher who was there ostensibly to help educate Afghans, didn’t find a way to the airport. As you said, it was incredibly chaotic. There are great stories of the Taliban letting people through. There are also many tragic stories I've heard of the Taliban stopping people from getting to the airport. It sounds like that’s what happened to this teacher. And so he’s stuck there and he doesn’t know how we’re going to get him out. And our responsibility in Washington is to have a plan for that. It’s to have a plan for where we go forward and the number one first step is to get these Americans and the Afghan allies that we left behind out to freedom and safety, because many of them have a price on their heads."
