The Americans took their citizens to the airport through a secret corridor. Witnesses talk about the US-Taliban interplay

US troops built a secret corridor to Kabul Airport while leaving Afghanistan with the Taliban, through which they evacuated their citizens.

This is stated by CNN, referring to sources from the US Department of Defense. The way the Americans left the country shows a high level of coordination between the United States and the Taliban.

One member of the U.S. military revealed that the Americans had to regroup at predetermined assembly points where the Taliban checked their documents.

Only then were they taken to the departure gate, where other Americans were already waiting. It was only a few meters from the place where crowds of Afghans hoped that they would also be able to escape from the country, writes CNN.
