The US has left behind the majority of Afghan allies who had applied for visas to escape reprisal from the Taliban, despite fraught efforts to evacuate those at risk in the final two weeks of the mission.

You gotta hand it to the military for pulling this off!
IMHO the same thing is going on now but all you hear is we left this or that person behind.
I wonder what would have happened if the deadline was extended. Would these people be at more risk?

I would guess there are many more secret extractions going on.

I wish they would keep them all secret until it is all over.

To borrow a moshol (parable) from the Satmar Rov, giving the Biden administration credit for the "historic evacuation" is like praising an arsonist for helping to put out a fire he started.
