Journalists and their families have been abandoned in Kabul, according to a group statement made by leaders of The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.
The statement asks for the “American government to move urgently” in facilitating the removal of the journalists, asking for protection in reaching the “US-controlled airport,” as well as “safe passage through a protected access gate to the airport” and “facilitated air movement out of the country.”
The letter was signed by Frederick J. Ryan, Jr. Publisher and Chief Executive Officer, The Washington Post, Almar Latour, Chief Executive Officer, Dow Jones & Co. Publisher, The Wall Street Journal and A.G. Sulzberger, Chairman and Publisher, The New York Times.
As the journalists are begging for assistance, the installed puppet Joe Biden made a statement of his own, taking responsibility for his decision to withdrawal from Afghanistan, only after he blamed President Trump, Afghanistan leadership and the people of Afghanistan for not fighting for their country.
Journalist Lara Logan pointed out that it was America who asked for Afghanistan’s help “to fight al Qaeda/Taliban after 9/11”, she tweeted in part. “The US asked for THEIR help & after what the world is witnessing now no one in their right mind would stand by the US again,” she said.
It is difficult to comprehend the terror Afghan citizens surely feel at the prospect of a country ruled by the Taliban. RAIR Foundation USA fervently prays for the innocents suffering in Afghanistan, as well as the swift and safe passage home of all Americans seeking to flee the country.
While the journalists trapped in Kabul does not appear to be gaining much traction in the media, it was briefly featured in a report at MSNBC:
