Biden Administration Denies Sharing List of Names With the Taliban

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.7

Many analysts are warning that the list of names the Biden Administration gave to the Taliban for those who needed “safe passage” for evacuation may become a list of targets instead.  However, the Biden Administration denies that it gave a list with the names of Americans and Afghan helpers stranded in Afghanistan to the Taliban. The president of the American University of Afghanistan explains, “[Administration officials] told us: we have given your names to the Taliban.” Now, the students from the American University of Afghanistan are among those stranded without any American troops on the ground and their names in the hands of Taliban leaders.
