Last month, US forces left Afghanistan after the largest airlift in US history. Although thousands were evacuated, the Biden administration left behind an unknown number of Americans.
The effort to rescue them isn't over as Afghans face arrests, abductions and executions under Taliban rule.
Chad Robichaux, a former Force Recon Marine and Afghanistan veteran, is working to rescue those left behind.
"I believe the level of desperation is even worse now without the US troops there, without any exit," he told CBN News. "People are hiding and on the run. The Taliban is actually [going] door-to-door doing executions. We have videos where they're going [and grabbing] people, stuffing them in trunks of cars and driving them off to execution sites. I can imagine the on-the-ground panic there is even worse than it was during those evacuation days."
When the US announced its pullout, Robichaux joined other retired special forces members to form Save Our Allies. He says they rescued more than 12,000 US citizens and Afghan allies during the chaotic weeks before the US military's final flight out.
"The good news is that we're still being successful in evacuations. Not in the big numbers that we were. We're still getting 100-200 people out per day."
This type of rescue operation is nothing new to Dave Eubank of the Free Burma Rangers.
The White House and State Department put the number of US citizens left behind at about 100. Robichaux says the math doesn't add up.
"The truth is it's not a few hundred. I would say it's a few thousand. My guess is at least 5,000. And people were saying that's overestimating but if you go back and listen to the Senate hearing, those numbers are about what the Senate hearing had concluded...over 5,000."
