Washington Post officials have reportedly pleaded with the White House to help more than 200 U.S. journalists who are stuck at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.
- In what he describes as an “urgent request,” publisher Fred Ryan says he’s asked National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan to have the reporters – who represent three news agencies -- moved from the civilian side of the airport “to the military side where they can be safe as they await evacuation flights.”
- The request comes after the Taliban captured the capital city of Kabul, causing thousands of Afghans to flee to Hamid Karzai International Airport.
- Should the White House help all U.S. residents who are in Afghanistan right now?
