WH deputy communications director Kate Berner added on Twitter:
Last week, we offered seats on planes out of Afghanistan to approx 60 American citizens, approx 30 availed themselves of that option. https://t.co/WWrBgK5Poy— Kate Berner (@KateBerner46) September 13, 2021
BLINKEN: As of the end of last week, we had about 100 Americans in Afghanistan who had told us they wish to leave the country. I want to emphasize this is a snapshot in time, it is more accurately a moving picture.
Stepping back for a minute. To know at any given time how many Americans are in any country is something we can't and don't know.
