U.S.-Funded Journalists Left Behind In Afghanistan: We Must Get Them Out!

By Steve Forbes, Forbes Staff

This episode of What’s Ahead discusses the scandal of the Biden Administration leaving behind the journalists and employees who staffed Radio Free Afghanistan and the Voice of America in Afghanistan. 

Both entities were U.S. government-supported. Their truth-telling broadcasts over the years—and the fact that both organizations employed women—made them especially hated by the barbarians now ruling Afghanistan. Torture and death await these individuals and their families because of their affiliation with us. That our government didn’t make it a priority to evacuate these obvious targets of retribution is particularly shameful. 

So far, Washington has only responded with unctuous utterances of concern.

This won’t do.

Our government should be ready to employ our military and the action-oriented parts of our intelligence services to get these people out, as well as the others we have unconscionably left behind.
