36. Rachel has been beating the drum about leaving the translators behind.

The French and British have had their translators and families out for months, and last week Biden promised in no uncertain terms to get them out post haste. So why are they still there, and no move has been made to get them out of the country?

It turns out that some yahoos in the State Department and Homeland Security have gummed it up, because once the translators are on U.S. soil (Guarm's governor says they're waiting with open arms) they would "have the same rights as Americans." These guys should be put on a plane and dropped off in Afghanistan with orders to stay there until the last translator leaves. They'd have everyone out of Afghanistan by the end of the week!

The entire Congress -- Dems andQRepugs alike -- should be pressuring Biden to get this done NOW. If even one translator is killed by the Taliban it will be an example to the world that our country's promises aren't worth a damn. "Watch what they do, not what they say," is the world's watchword.
