In an exclusive television interview with Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin in Ramstein, Germany Saturday, General Gen. Mark Milley was asked about the military operation to process 17,000 Afghan evacuees headed for the U.S.

“What they’re doing as people come in, they’re getting their names registered. They’re doing the biometrics. They check their irises. They do their fingerprints. They take a full facial photo,” he explained, referencing not only the Department of Homeland Security but officials in the FBI, USAID, the State Department, and Customs and Border Protection.

A pregnant woman named Nasria, a California native, flew to Afghanistan in June to visit family and get married. As of early September, she remained one of the estimated 100 to 200 Americans left behind in the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces, according to a report. 

Now that the U.S. military is gone, the Taliban is “hunting Americans,” she told the Voice of America.

Gary Cooper’s only child is determined to keep the legendary actor’s legacy alive.

The Oscar winner, who started his Hollywood career in 1925 doing stunt riding for Westerns, passed away in 1961 just six days after turning 60. In his lifetime, the actor who appeared in over 100 films, was idolized as the everyman who commanded the screen with ease.

President Gerald R. Ford cited Hemingway in a 2000 letter he sent to a member of the Fall of Saigon Marines Association — a group whose website says its “members consist of United States Marines serving at US missions in the Republic of Vietnam during the spring of 1975,” when the city fell, on April 30, 1975.

Ford also nodded to T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land”: “April 1975 was indeed the cruelest month. The passage of time has not dulled the ache of those days, the saddest of my public life.”

Rep. Markwayne Mullin announced Monday that an American family he has been working to get out of Afghanistan was successfully evacuated Monday morning. 

Mullin, R-Okla., recently returned from a somewhat secret trip to Asia to help bring home Americans left in Afghanistan following President Biden’s withdrawal of all U.S. troops last week.
