Erik Prince is charging $6,500 per seat to help Afghans escape the escalating turmoil in their country as the Talibans insinuate themselves as the de facto government. He is the founder of Blackwater, the mercenaries for hire, Donald Trump supporter, and former Secretary of Education Betsy Devos’ brother. On the other hand, former Secretary Hillary Clinton is doing something completely remarkable. It is happening now, and it is huge.
The New York Times wrote how it and The Journal and The Post banded together to get their people evacuated:
‘Security personnel and editors shared information on morning calls. The publishers called on the Biden administration to help facilitate the passage of their Afghan colleagues, and discussions ensued with officials at the White House, the Pentagon and the State Department.
‘Michael Slackman, an assistant managing editor for international for The Times. “You’d have a plan at night and two hours later the circumstances on the ground would have shifted.”‘
Hillary Clinton offered the newspapers a few seats for their Afghan employees on a charter flight her team was pulling together to help Afghan women at risk. Clinton has been privately scheduling charter flights for the purpose of evacuating Afghan women and children at risk:
‘BREAKING — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been privately organizing charter flights to help evacuate Afghan women and children at risk. RT TO THANK HER!

‘While Betsy Devos’s brother Erik Prince is charging $6,500 a seat to Afghans looking to escape Afghanistan @HillaryClintonhas been quietly working to get at-risk women out of Afghanistan.’
Clinton spoke with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about her effort:
‘At a campaign stop in Markham, @JustinTrudeau randomly drops in a mention that he consulted @HillaryClinton last night about the situation in Afghanistan and his concern for women and girls. His government is taking a “wait and see” approach on the Taliban.’
‘Missed this yesterday – while the Biden admin admitted he hadn’t spoken to any other world leaders, Justin Trudeau turned to Hillary Clinton? I guess if there’s one person who really knows about failed foreign policy leaving Americans stranded in hostile territory it’s her.’
‘Yesterday, the White House said that Joe Biden has not taken any calls with world leaders in regards to Afghanistan. Justin Trudeau stated that he spoke with Hillary Clinton yesterday about Afghanistan. What is going on? Why is the US President not taking calls but Hillary is?’

The Taliban have been cruel oppressors for women. The Clinton administration built a network to link up with international feminist organizations. The Sisterhood Is Global Institute (SIGI), which is led by feminists from Muslim countries. One of its founders was an Afghan. In turn, SIGI connected that administration with American legislators and government officials such as the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) and international networks like Women Living Under Muslim Laws.
These groups worked with the U.S. and highlighted the Taliban government’s “violations of women’s and girls’ human rights.” All but Pakistan, the UAE (United Arab Emirates), and Saudi Arabia withheld their recognition of the Taliban.
