According to a shocking new report, dozens of American children and their parents are now reportedly stranded in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan with only days to go until the US Military’s full withdrawal from the country finishes on August 31st.
As The LA Times reports:
EL CAJON, Calif. —
At least 24 students from the Cajon Valley Union School District in El Cajon and 16 parents are stranded in Afghanistan after taking a summer trip abroad.
They are among thousands of individuals waiting to leave the country amid political unrest caused by the U.S. military pullout after 20 years of occupation. The U.S. government is accelerating efforts to rescue Americans as the Taliban takes over the country.
Cajon Valley Supt. David Miyashiro told school district board members via text message Tuesday that he and other Cajon Valley staff met virtually with U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Bonsall) and his staff about the situation.
He said the missing students attend different schools in the 28-school district in eastern San Diego County.
With President Biden giving the go-ahead for a full and complete withdrawal of all US forces from the country on August 31st and reports of the Taliban preventing US citizens from getting to the Kabul airport there are now very real concerns that the children may end up trapped in a country run by radical Islamists.
