WASHINGTON — A sluggish State Department response to the Taliban’s rapid takeover of Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital, has stranded thousands of Afghans who helped the United States
The White House is expected to pull the nomination of an experienced career diplomat for US ambassador to Qatar and instead tap former one-term Virginia congressman Scott Taylor, multiple sources familiar with the situation tell CNN.
American politician Scott Taylor has confirmed his attendance and participation at the upcoming African Energy Week (AEW) 2021, taking place in Cape Town on the 9th-12th of November 2021.
