How is the Taliban breaking their commitments to the U.S. right now?

In what is likely a surprise to no one, the Taliban appears to be reneging on their promise not to block Afghan access to the Kabul International Airport, officials say. 

“We have seen reports that the Taliban, contrary to their public statements and their commitments to our government, are blocking Afghans who wish to leave the country from reaching the airport,” said Wendy Sherman, who is the deputy secretary of state. “[US military officials are] engaging directly with the Taliban to make clear that we expect them to allow all American citizens, all third-country nationals and all Afghans who wish to leave, to do so safely and without harassment.” 

Her message follows an alert form Kabul’s U.S. embassy that officials “cannot ensure safe passage” to the airport.

Within the last 24 hours, about 2,000 people have been evacuated, officials say.
