My two cents. Secretary of State Blinken and his buds the Taliban say you need papers to leave the fun spot called Afghanistan. You may of heard that Americans and their allies want out of this fun spot. But the Taliban say not so fast. Are they saying show me the money?
Secretary of State Blinken is going along with his allies who say this. “Blinken at presser in Doha effectively denied reports that Taliban was blocking Americans from departing via charter flights out of Mazar-i-Sharif but that some folks in the group without valid travel documents meant Taliban had not permitted the planes to depart,” Hümeyra Pamuk, a Reuters reporter tweeted.
So Blinken hook line and sinker is buying the story from his new best friends the Taliban. What say you?
