The Biden White House bragged on Tuesday that 58,700 civilians were evacuated from Afghanistan since the operation began a week ago.
37 US military flights carrying 12,700 evacuees were airlifted from Kabul on Monday and 57 coalition flights carrying 8,900 civilians were evacuated from Afghanistan.
But only 4,407 Americans have been rescued since the Taliban took control of Kabul.
There are estimates of 10,000 to 20,000 Americans still stranded inside the country.
Joe Biden says he will not extend the rescue mission after the Taliban’s August 31 deadline.
And stranded Americans are not making it past the Taliban checkpoints.
State Department spokesman John Kirby admitted to reporters on Wednesday that the Taliban is in charge, “(We) fully recognize not every step of this process is in our firm control. And there are going to be instances where it doesn’t work as advertised.”
The Pentagon also announced that only 4,400 Americans have been rescued so far.
