The US is using 18 commercial airlines to help evacuate Kabul airport. (Thank you, cooperating partners!). Yesterday, about 7800 evacuees left. About 28,000 have been evacuated since August 14.

Much of U.S. media is describing Afghanistan as a disaster for Biden. Matt Dowd, chief strategist for Bush-Cheney in 04, noted that >20,000 people have been evacuated from Afghanistan without a single loss of American life, while in the same period of time, 5000 Americans have died from Covid-19 and 500 have died from gunshots.

Thank you once more to Heather Cox Richardson.
