New Yorker’s David Rohde: ‘State Department and the White House’ are Blocking Americans from Leaving Afghanistan

New Yorker Executive Editor David Rohde said Monday he faulted the Biden administration for preventing Americans trapped in Afghanistan from taking flights out of the airport in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. Right now, our 19 American citizens and their families, and 40 SIV holders and their families — those are the translators who worked with the United States military — that are waiting to fly out of Mazar-i-Sharif on those charter planes, that is being held up by the State Department and the White House,” Rohde said in an afternoon interview with MSNBC’s Geoff Bennett. “I want to repeat that. It is the State Department and the White House.”
