‘Around’ 100 Americans left in Afghanistan, Klain says

White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Sunday that there are around 100 American citizens left in Afghanistan, days after the administration’s Aug. 31 deadline for getting them all out.

“We’re in touch with all of them who we’ve identified on a regular basis,” Klain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The administration is “hopeful that in the coming days the Qataris will be able to resume air service out of Kabul. If they do, we’re obviously going to look to see if Americans can be part of those flights,” he said, referring to the nation of Qatar.
