Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) spoke on Fox News, stating that at the moment, there are 6 airplanes down the Mazar-i-Sharif airport in Afghanistan, in which there are both, Afghan and American passengers, but are not allowed to depart, because the Taliban are holding them hostage on demand.
Allegedly, this is due to the fact that among the passengers on the planes, there are American-Afghan translators, which are crucial for the Taliban, to make their requests transparent to the world.

“In fact, we have six airplanes at Mazar-i-Sharif airport, six airplanes, with American citizens on them, as I speak, also with these interpreters, and the Taliban is holding them, hostage, for demands right now,” McCaul told Fox News on Sunday. The Department of State “has cleared these flights, and the Taliban will not let them leave the airport,” he added.
“Well, they are not clearing airplanes to depart. They’ve sat at the airport for the last couple days, these planes, and they’re not allowed to leave,” McCaul said. “We know the reason why is because the Taliban want something in exchange.”
