On Friday the Pentagon said Kabul was not in an “imminent threat environment.”
Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby told reporters, “Kabul is not right now in an imminent threat environment, but clearly… if you just look at what the Taliban has been doing, you can see that they are trying to isolate Kabul.”
