On March 2, Forward Defense nonresident senior fellow Alex Plitsas was cited in an article in Voice of America titled “US Urges Taliban to Allow Free Passage of Afghans.” Plitsas estimates that 10,000 Afghans have escaped the Taliban in the last six months and that NGOs have spent approximately $100 million in the evacuation process.
