Taliban enters Kabul, leaving Afghan government on brink of collapse – The Washington Post
Latest: The Taliban is surging across Afghanistan, taking over key cities and closing in on the capital Kabul. Afghan security forces are stretched thin and losing ground, with insurgents controlling large parts of the country.
American officials are racing to prepare for a Taliban takeover. President Biden said that approximately 5,000 U.S. troops will be deployed to oversee the evacuation of U.S. diplomats, and embassy staff are destroying classified documents and equipment ahead of an expected move to Hamid Karzai International Airport to prepare for a potential evacuation.
