While the Biden Administration continues to botch the drawdown in Afghanistan, it has been left up to private citizens to fend for themselves on the ground. Chaos continues to surround the airport in Kabul as foreign allies are beginning to become more vocal in their criticism of President Biden.
Now comes word that Fox News Media has successfully rescued three Afghan nationals who had assisted Fox News on the ground for years.
Deadline reported that the company sent a memo on Saturday sharing the news with employees. In all, 24 people were rescued.

The situation in Afghanistan is deteriorating by the hour, and private groups are recognizing that the Biden Administration has no solid plans for rescues. Radio personality Glenn Beck has raised $20 million in order to fund rescues for Afghan Christians and their Christian partners. Veterans groups are using satellite imaging to help relay information and enemy positions to those struggling to navigate to the airport.
