Most Afghan evacuees not vetted before entering country, GOP memo says


Nearly all of the roughly 82,000 Afghans that were evacuated to the United States from Kabul in August were not properly vetted before they entered the country, a GOP Senate memo claims.

The current administration has not vetted information provided by tens of thousands of Afghans through in-person interviews, choosing instead to rely solely on criminal and terrorist databases to seed out potential threats — or “screenings” —  the congressional memo claims, according to the Washington Examiner

The memo — drafted by senate Republicans in October — summarizes interviews with federal officials from the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State and Justice who oversaw what they depicted as a reckless screening and vetting process at home and at military bases, the Examiner reported.
