Adela Raz, Afghanistan’s ambassador to the U.S., stated in an interview that she doesn’t imagine President Biden cares concerning the destiny of Afghan girls left behind to stay below Taliban rule and stated she feels a degree of guilt for persuading girls to imagine there was a future within the nation.

She informed “Axios on HBO” that one of many girls she influenced—a human rights advocate– has since been assassinated. 

Axios stated the Monday interview with Raz came about in her embassy‘s office in Washington, where she still flies the former Afghanistan flag. The interview was prior to the appearance of top U.S. military officials in front of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees, where Gen. Mark Milley, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called the war a “strategic failure.”

“The Taliban was and remain a terrorist organization and they still have not broken ties with al Qaeda,” he said. “I have no illusions who we are dealing with.”

Raz was described in the Axios report as “effectively a refugee representing a leaderless government-in-exile.” The report said the Taliban reached out to her but she has refused to take the call and said she would never work as an envoy for the Taliban. 

She took particular issue with exiled President Ashraf Ghani fleeing the country as Taliban fighters routed his federal forces and closed in on the city. His retreat was shrouded in secrecy that gave rise to conspiracy theories that he left with a fortune—an allegation that he denied.

She told Axios that her husband noticed that the exiled president seemed to be having clandestine meetings with top aides as the Taliban closed in.

“I was very sarcastic,” she said. “I said, ‘Oh, probably they’re engaged on the evacuation plan.”

The Taliban has been accountable for the nation for over a month and appear to be discovering out that it is tougher to run a desperately poor nation than overthrow one. Kabul could also be plunged into darkness as a result of the nation has not continued its funds to its Central Asian electrical energy suppliers. 

“The consequences would be countrywide, but especially in Kabul,” Daud Noorzai, who resigned as chief govt of the nation’s state energy monopoly, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, informed the Wall Street Journal. There will probably be blackout and it will deliver Afghanistan again to the Dark Ages relating to energy and to telecommunications. This could be a very harmful scenario.”
