'We were not aware of this visit': Pentagon on US congressmen in Kabul during evacuation

by News Update

The Pentagon has responded to the unexpected arrival of two US Congress members in Kabul airport, in what the congressmen claimed was a fact-finding mission but critics have dismissed as grandstanding. “They certainly took time away from what we had planned to do that day,” said John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary.
Seth Moulton, a Democratic representative from Massachusetts, and Peter Meijer, a Republican representative from Michigan, astonished state department and military officials in the Afghan capital when they flew in on Tuesday.

They’ve probably gone to get a slice of the hostage ransoms, drug trafficking, weapons and human trafficking – all the usual run of the mill daily grind for US Politicians.

Almost no context given

My first thought is that if there was no knowledge of this then the Congress members in question failed to do their duty to notify the relevant parties as to where they were headed, but honestly this provides no genuine context AT ALL. In isolation this clip is basically garbage.

I quite like Guardian but this pretty trash so nah, disappointed
