The number of Americans trapped in Afghanistan is actually unknown. According to Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby, somewhere around 5,000 to 10,000 are known, but the number could be 20,000. Those U.S. citizens are not at the airport in Kabul, and need to reach the airport in order to be evacuated.
Several media reports outline that the Taliban have checkpoints around the airport presumably looking for people who were aligned with the former government. Unfortunately, given the nature of media bias and previous propaganda, it is challenging to determine the level of risk or threat to any American. There have been no reports of Americans killed or taken hostage. Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby outlines the current priority is to secure the airport, that’s what the additional troops are intended to do. WATCH:
