During a recent briefing in Washington, U.S. Central Command leader Marine Corps Gen. Frank McKenzie told reporters that the Americans who wanted to leave and who were not evacuated number in the “very low hundreds.” So between 100 and 200 Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan now remain in the country following the final U.S. military withdrawal and evacuation efforts from Afghanistan. Some might question these numbers and could be much higher.
At the same time, on Good Morning America, host George Stephanopoulos asked National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan whether the U.S. is going to work with the Taliban – including the prospect of giving them aid?”
Sullivan’s response was, “Well, first of all, we do believe that there is an important dimension of humanitarian assistance that should go directly to the people of Afghanistan. They need help concerning health and food aid and other forms of subsistence, and we do intend to continue that.”
