Deep Dive (Sept. 9): First Flight With Americans Leaves Kabul Since Taliban Takeover

The Taliban is allowing the first commercial flight with 200 foreigners on board to leave. Among those onboard include Americans. Former acting head of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says the department has veered off course by focusing on domestic rather than international terrorism. He went on to say the department’s first-ever comprehensive threat assessment published in October 2020 highlighted threats from China and Russia.

A new generation learning the history of 9/11 is the goal of the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Ahead of this year’s anniversary, the museum and memorial launched a new educational campaign and fundraiser called The Never Forget Fund. Money donated to The Never Forget Fund will support educational campaigns to teach young people about the attack and the global aftermath.
