Leaving Afghan Interpreters Behind

During the war in Afghanistan, American troops relied on locals to act as interpreters. We made big promises in return for their service, including a path to U.S. citizenship. But now that we’ve left, we haven’t kept our word to many of the interpreters who served alongside us. In our newest episode we investigate why it’s so hard for us to bring those still stuck in Afghanistan – facing retribution from the Taliban – to the U.S. And why Congress is dragging its feet on passing a bill that could speed this urgent process up. Allies: Friends Without Benefits is now streaming on Apple TV Plus.
