21,000 people were evacuated from Kabul airport in last 24 hours, via 37 US military flights carrying 12,700 evacuees & 57 coalition flights carrying 8,900, per WH. 12,700 is largest number evacuated by US military in 24-hour period to date.
There are also several private flights leaving from Afghanistan. According to the flight company, the Biden Regime has been nothing but an impediment to their work rescuing Americans in Kabul.
The Daily Caller reported:
The Biden administration has been an “impediment” to a private effort to get people out of Afghanistan, Robert Stryk, who is arranging privately chartered flights to get Americans and vulnerable Afghans out of the country, exclusively told the Daily Caller News Foundation Monday.
“The Brits and South Africans have been very awesome and heroic in getting people through the Mil Gate,” Stryk told the DCNF.
Stryk, whose Washington-based lobbying firm was in 2017 paid by the government of Afghanistan for “US Government affairs and commercial sector advice. Executive Branch and Legislative Branch Engagement; Defense consultation; strategic advice pertaining to extremism/terrorism; and promotion of democracy and foreign direct investment,” said he had reached out to the administration “dozens and dozens” of times and had yet to hear back.
