White House Chief Of Staff Says U.S. Is ‘Going To Find Ways’ To Get Remaining Americans Out Of Afghanistan

DM

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain claimed the Biden administration would “find ways” to get Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan out of the country. In an interview on Sunday, Klain said the administration was in touch with about 100 Americans left in the country after the U.S. ended evacuations last month. Klain also acknowledged the administration was working to get those with special immigration visas out as well, while suggesting they would ultimately be resettled in either the U.S. or Europe. He went on to say, “we are going to find ways to get them, the ones that want to leave, to get them out of Afghanistan.” Klain indicated the U.S. would have to rely on Qatar to evacuate remaining Americans. “Obviously, we’re hopeful that, in the coming days, the Qataris will be able to resume air service out of Kabul,” he explained. “If they do, we’re obviously going to look to see if Americans can be part of those flights.” Klain notably failed to refute reports of the Taliban systemically killing Afghans left behind who worked with the U.S. when asked about the matter.
