Rep. Sarbanes, D-Md., says America should resettle Afghan refugees
The Taliban now agreeing to allow safe passage for Americans looking to evacuate Afghanistan.
Thousands of US troops have arrived and more are on the way to help secure the airport and aid in that evacuation process.
"A lot of people are saying, 'Why weren't you getting these folks out sooner, a lot of these allied civilians out of the country, and their families, sooner?' Apparently there was a lot of resistance to that by those families themselves because they were hoping that the situation would be a different one, so there was kind of a dynamic there that was difficult to manage," said Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md. "We're going to get briefings on what the intelligence was leading up to these events so we have a better picture as members of Congress of what that looked like."
Sarbanes says the government's efforts right now are on evacuating as many people as possible.
