11:02 am
well, people are watching it very closely. there's been a lot of hype around around the evacuation, but there's been very little details because of security. we do know that about 2500 people, 2500 afghans and me to be getting out this week. that includes about 700 of these and produces and other people who work the us government and military, along with their families. but the u. s. embassy here in cobble is incredibly worried about their security and their privacy. so they're not telling anybody on these flights. when they taking off or when they will land in the us because this is going to be ongoing for about another month and they don't want to jeopardize the security. a future evacuation of people find out the logistics of how they are getting out. we understand about $20000.00 people have applied for these special immigrant pieces. you can get a special immigrant visa or if you work the us military or government for more than 2 years. and at the moment that we understand this,
11:03 am
of these 20 thousands about taking immediate family members of which is about 4 or $0.05, but $90000.00 people that they would have to get out in the next month. the logistics are huge in the us, hasn't done anything on the scale since vietnam. so what does this mean for others who are still waiting to get out? or every day we hear of more people looking for every new out, thousands as the security situation deteriorates. thousands, i'm looking for an avenue and you've got all the people who work for other nato allies. you've got people who worked for american media organizations for years, for other contractors who are looking for away out. and many of them are starting to take matters into their own hands. the un tells us about 1500000 people could try to leave. that's going to stop by the end of the year. if the security situation continues, as it is, which would be have to traverse occasions, looking towards europe and the neighbors in the region. now, as far as those,

11:05 am
but nothing happened. and he said they be patient. ali is one is about $20000.00 africans who replied for a special immigrant visa. those who worked for at least 2 years for the us government or military eligible. the process has been long and advocate to say, increasingly confusing. a lot of people have received, offers to relocate them and evacuate them safely out of the country. the problem we're seeing is that these people are responding to the letters. and at this point there are some that are saying it's been a week. it's been 7 days and it had no response back as the telephone take more territory. the stakes arising from many of those who worked with foreign forces. all of my relatives and other people who are living in our area. they know me. like this guy was interpreter and they will tend to tell him like, there are some people that they will tell me like he was
