Even Harder to Get out of Afghanistan
By Micah Halpern

Sunday September 5, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Private organizations and private people are still chartering planes to help US citizens and Afghanis who were helpful to the United States, escape Afghanistan.
They are facing terrible obstacles.

At least four chartered planes, capable of rescuing several hundred people, are instead literally sitting on a tarmac in Afghanistan. They have been unable to board the people they came to rescue. They have been unable to leave the country for days. There are a variety of reasons for why they cannot take off.

An Afghan official at the airport in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif said that the would-be passengers were Afghans, many of whom did not have passports or visas, and thus were unable to leave the country. He said they had left the airport while the situation was being sorted out.

Entrance and exit to Afghanistan has now been tightened.

None of this portends well for those desperate to leave the now Taliban-led country.
