I’m happy for Ali. I hope he finds peace. This administration is a disgrace.

It's a real problem when I have to tell the State Department that they have an American citizen trapped in Afghanistan AND tell them that he is back in the US.

Ya think? Emily, there’s no way everything we’re witnessing - domestically and internationally - is the result of incompetence. It’s all being done intentionally. Look how Biden is about to end out sovereignty by ceding all healthcare decision making to the WHO. Whoever is pulling his strings is looking to collapse the country.

Emily you rock, we love your work! while the many others still in Afghanistan are in our prayers, now is the time for 'Ali' to heal and enjoy being with his sons.

slightly OT but relevant nonetheless: election integrity is still a major issue and we need many more people 'in the field', volunteering at the local polling station or as a precinct member, to ensure transparency and fair play. pls share - https://precinctstrategy.com/

May God bless Ali and help him recover from the trauma he's had to walk through, and also lead Ali into the future for the right path in his life. May God also bless and protect his family that's still in Afghanistan. The Lord sees all hearts and actions.

No one should go through what has been done to the people abandoned in Afghanistan. I'm sickened by this whole thing.

Thank you for this kind and compassionate note. Ali is reading these and I know the support helps him so much.

I read a related story from Politico that came out today at 6:16p. An Afghan national who worked as a translator for the US Army & SIV holder. He was scheduled to fly out of Afghanistan but his flight was canceled and he was unable to get to US Embassy for his documents. Apparently, he had assurances from the United States that we wouldn’t forget him. We’ve forgotten him. Well, Biden or Blinken or both have forgotten this man and many others.

Another problem with Biden, his failures and his lying, his incompetence is felt by many of us as a personal embarrassment. I think it’s safe to say that all of us here feel a measure of shame when Biden misspeaks, makes creepy speeches or his incompetence is on full display. I know I do. I’m ashamed that we, America, have left so many people left behind. With the news being live, 24 hours a day, we see who Biden left behind. I see their faces, hear their voices and watch their frightened, hungry faces... and I think

I am delighted that this gentleman is out of Talibanistan. I empathize that he was unable to evacuate his extended family. As for the treacherous Talibandits, and the traitors in the current regime of the United States, Naughtinghamshire is now the reference for the United States, may they decompose and disintegrate in their bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits until they are cast into The Lake of Fire, where Satan, the Whore of Babylon, and those that oppose God, will be eternally tormented.

I was so happy too when he finally escaped, but it must be so painful to leave your own sisters and not know if they are safe or when he can see them again.

Do you think there's any shred of hope of any rebirth of good times? My thoughts regarding reparation maneuvers are rather profane

The mainstream media is giving this "a good leaving alone ". The fact that they're willing to ignore the deaths of innocents in order to not embarrass the Biden administration makes me both sad and furious. Kudos to you for your genuine journalism. If only we could expand your reach.

I wish the media didn’t just focus on daily small ball fights and could stay on top of big stories that aren’t going away by ignoring them. I don’t know how they just ignore these people struggling every day to survive the Taliban.
