WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. veterans, lawmakers and others say the relaunch of evacuation flights from Kabul has done little to soothe fears that the U.S. might abandon countless Afghan allies who risked their lives working alongside American troops.

Some fear the Taliban will not be as accommodating for the Afghans who worked for the U.S. government during the 20-year war. The Taliban have promised to let people with travel documents leave. But with no U.S. Embassy in Kabul, many Afghans are stuck in limbo with no visa.
