Former Force Recon Marine Chad Robichaux, a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, is working to rescue the Americans who remain there following the withdrawal and evacuation efforts of August. He joined other retired special operations members to form Save Our Allies, responsible for the rescue of over 12,000 American citizens in the last few weeks. Robichaux stresses how dire the situation on the ground is and how violent the Taliban’s governance is despite what they may claim. He also disputes how many Americans remain on the ground. While the White House and State Department claim the number in the low hundreds, Robichaux believes it to be closer to 5,000.
