The U.S. military reported its biggest day of evacuation flights out of Afghanistan today, but deadly violence that has blocked many desperate evacuees from entering Kabul's airport persisted, and the Taliban signaled they might soon seek to shut down the evacuation.
In remarks over the weekend, President Biden seemed open to extending the Aug. 31 deadline on American troop withdrawal - something that the Taliban is now warning against. State Department officials remained coy on the deadline today, adding that it doesn't affect efforts to evacuate those who want to leave Afghanistan. It comes as roughly 16,000 people have been evacuated out of Kabul in the last 24 hours, bringing that total to nearly 37,000. In that same timeframe, some 1,300 evacuees arrived at Dulles International Airport on five flights while 1,200 Afghans have been distributed between four US bases: Fort Lee, Fort McCoy, Fort Bliss, and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

Anxiety in the United States over COVID-19 is at its highest level since last winter, a new poll shows, as the delta variant rages, more states and school districts adopt mask and vaccination requirements and the nation’s hospitals once again fill to capacity. The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research also finds that majorities of American adults want vaccination mandates for those attending movies, sports, concerts and other crowded events; those traveling by airplane; and workers in hospitals, restaurants, stores and government offices. The poll shows that 41% are “extremely” or “very” worried about themselves or their family becoming infected with the virus. That is up from 21% in June, and about the same as in January, during the country's last major surge, when 43% were extremely or very worried.

The Pentagon says the U.S. military is ramping up evacuations out of Afghanistan, and that 7,000 civilians have been taken out of the country since August 14. Army Maj. Gen. Hank Taylor told reporters that 12 C-17 aircraft departed with 2,000 evacuees over the past 24 hours. Speaking at a Pentagon briefing today, Taylor said the military now has enough aircraft to get 5,000-9,000 people out a day, depending on how many have been processed and other factors, such as weather. There are now about 5,200 U.S. troops at the airport, a number that has been steadily increasing in recent days. When ABC News' Luis Martinez pressed Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby on whether there's been progress getting people access to the airport: "We have seen by opening up another gate, by adding consular officers now, we believe that we will soon begin to see an opening up of the aperture, and we're hopeful that that means more consistent increase in the flow ...but I want to be careful before I make predictions," Kirby replied.

The rapid takeover by the Taliban blindsided the Biden administration. Biden is set to address the nation today at 3:45PM ET, after the planned withdrawal of American forces turned deadly at Kabul’s airport as thousands tried to flee the country after the Taliban’s takeover. It will be his first public remarks on the Afghanistan situation in nearly a week. Meanwhile in Washington, the blame game is in full swing. Pressed by ABC News' Jonathan Karl on why the president was drastically wrong in his assessment, Blinken said they've maintained that the Taliban "was in a position of strength," and he blamed Afghan security forces for failing to defend their country. But Rep Liz Cheney (R-WY)placed blame squarely on the shoulders President Biden and on former President Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Trump administration. “Absolutely President Biden bears responsibility for making this decision. But there's no question that President Trump, his administration, Secretary Pompeo, they also bear very significant responsibility for this. They walked down this path of legitimizing the Taliban, perpetuating this fantasy, telling the American people that the Taliban were a partner for peace. President Trump told us the Taliban was going to fight terror. Secretary Pompeo told us the Taliban was going to renounce Al Qaeda. None of that has happened.”
Pfizer/BioNTech are using preliminary Phase 1 data to start the process of asking the FDA to evaluate a third booster dose. That Phase 1 data found that people given a 3rd shot 8-9 months after their primary doses had a boosted immune response, and higher neutralizing antibody levels against the Delta variant compared to people who received the original 2 doses. The FDA and CDC are still not recommending booster doses for all. It's not clear when or if the agencies might recommend booster doses. The companies are suggesting that giving a booster dose from six to 12 months after the initial vaccination will help maintain a high level of protection.
