CIA airlifted thousands of Afghan commandos accused of war crimes out of the country during withdrawal (Intercept Report)

The CIA’s Afghan Proxies, Accused of War Crimes, Will Get a Fresh Start in the U.S.

The CIA’s ability to evacuate its allies appears to have far outstripped that of other U.S. government entities and signals its pivotal role in the war. The agency evacuated as many as 20,000 Afghan “partners” and their relatives, the Washington Post reported, nearly one-third of the 60,000 Afghans the U.S. has taken in overall. The CIA did not respond to a request for comment.

Most coverage of the CIA’s efforts has been laudatory. But the Zero units were known for deadly night raids that killed an untold number of civilians across Afghanistan.
