WASHINGTON – At the height of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan a year ago, there were only 36 State Department executives on the ground at the Kabul airport to evaluate the Afghans to be evacuated, ie “about one consular officer for every 3,444 evacuated”, despite the reassurance of US diplomatic leaders that resources had been increased to manage the crowd of desperate people trying to escape. It is one of the unpublished details of the report that will be released shortly by the Republican deputies of the Foreign Affairs Committee on the chaotic American withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The report, of which CNN obtained a copy, also accuses the administration of failing to accurately depict the nature of events on the ground and of failing to prepare a plan to prevent US-trained Afghan commandos from being recruited by the Taliban.
