Sorry if this is a DUPE story... BREAKING, San Diego Students successfully evac'd from Kabul!

https://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/were-trying-to-get-them-out-san-diego-students-stranded-in-afghanistan-expected-to-return-home-soon/2702761/

Pardon me for the Darrell Issa (Dumbass, Trumpistan County) quote:

“This is great news, the result of tireless work by our team to ensure that our people aren’t left behind in Afghanistan,” said Issa in a press release. “But while we have made extraordinary progress, there are so many more Americans stranded in Afghanistan. We have more work to do and under extremely difficult conditions.”

1. Before the mistaken assumptions gang shows up...


This was not some school trip... These were family of Afghan US military contractors...

“ The families had traveled separately to Afghanistan for summer vacations to see their grandparents, cousins and other relatives. Most of the families came to the United States on a special immigrant visa after having worked for the U.S. government or U.S. military in Afghanistan, officials said. The visa allows in only the person and their spouse and children.”
