Psaki calls frenzied Afghan evacuation ‘success,’ but still not sure how many Americans remain stranded

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said evacuations from Afghanistan will likely be completed by the end of August, declaring the operation a “success” despite having no clear idea how many US citizens are still in the country.

Asked about President Joe Biden’s August 31 withdrawal deadline during a Tuesday press conference, Psaki said that while the mission “will end based on the achievement of our objectives,” it is currently “on pace” to meet that date.

“I would say that this is now on track to be the largest airlift in US history, and that is bringing American citizens out, it is bringing our Afghan partners out, it is bringing allies out,” she said.
