WH Chief of Staff says there's still 'Around 100' Americans still in Afghanistan

White House chief of staff, Ron Klain, said there are still "around 100" Americans left in Afghanistan. He also claims that many of them want to stay there, but they will try to find a way to get the rest of them out. Klain also stated that Taliban fighters have been attacking people such as Americans and Afghan allies since United States left.

Appearing on "State of the Union" with CNN’s Dana Bash, Klain said the U.S. government has been in close contact with the Americans still left in the country who have been located.

"We believe it’s around a hundred," he said. "We’re in touch with all of them, who we’ve identified, on a regular basis. Obviously, we’re hopeful that in the coming days that the Qataris will resume air service out of Kabul. And if they do, we’re obviously going to look to see if Americans can be on those flights. 

"We are going to find ways to get them, the ones that want to leave, to get them out of Afghanistan," he added. "We know many of them have family members, many of them want to stay, but the ones that want to leave, we’re going to get them out."

First of all, the claimed number is not even close to being accurate. "Around 100"? He obviously can't be bothered to count, so why should we listen to anything else he has to say? Aside from that, the number of Americans is steadily going down, but it is not because they are being evacuated. It is because they are being murdered. And Biden decided this would be a good time to take a vacation. Harris is absent doing something or other of no importance. America is a ship adrift right now.
