Biden’s Pentagon: Likely ‘Dozens’ Of U.S. Troop’s Family Members Still Trapped In Afghanistan


The U.S. Department of Defense said on Wednesday that there are likely “dozens” of family members of U.S. troops still trapped in Afghanistan following President Joe Biden’s chaotic pullout from the country back in August.

“The Defense Department is trying to compile a master list of relatives of U.S. troops who may still be in Afghanistan and wanting to leave, per a Nov. 4 memo from the Pentagon’s policy chief,” The Army Times reported. “The memo encourages military or civilian personnel to send a note to a DoD email address created specifically for referrals of Afghan nationals.”

At a press conference on Wednesday, a reporter asked Pentagon spokesman John Kirby to provide updates on the “number of immediate family members of U.S. service members in Afghanistan.”
