U.S. Steps Up Planning for Emergency Afghan Evacuation:  Gordon Lubold, Nancy A. Youssef and Warren P. Strobel, WSJ, July 2, 2021 U.S. officials have intensified planning for an emergency evacuation of the American embassy in Kabul amid concern that a worsening security situation in Afghanistan could imperil the remaining military and diplomatic corps, as well as other Americans.

Afghan Militias Fill the Vacuum As the Regular Army Melts Away:  Gordon Lubold and Ehsanullah Amiri, WSJ, July 2, 2021 When Abbas Ibrahimzada spotted Taliban fighters posting Facebook pictures of themselves at the gates of northern Afghanistan’s biggest city last week, he ordered hundreds of gun-toting members of his own militia to speed through Mazar-e-Sharif in pickup trucks and set up checkpoints at the entrances.

UN: Al Qaeda Chief Aiman al-Zawahiri Believed to be in Afghan-Pak Border:  Dhaka Tribune, June 5, 2021A significant part of the Al-Qaeda leadership resides in the Afghanistan and Pakistan border region, including the group’s elusive leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, who is “probably alive but too frail to be featured in propaganda,” according to a United Nations report.
