Taliban are going door-to-door looking for journalists, interpreters and LGBTQ+ people. The longest war the US has ever been in was not won by US. We are hard pressed to explain the amoral economic drivers and it’s obvious the way it is ending is far from graceful or humane. Most Americans agree it is time to leave. As they learn more about what was left and what we left and what seems obvious to those on the ground, it’s already clear our exit was far from well planned , human or graceful. As Nemat Sadat, a Afghan American novelist and LGBTQ activist in the UnitesStates told CBC two days ago “Americans are rejoicing saying that this is the end of the war, but the war has just started for Afghans,” he said. “I feel like the LGBTQ+ community has the most to lose.” Sadat says he’s heard from contacts back home that the Taliban are going door-to-door looking for journalists, interpreters and LGBTQ+ people.
