Pentagon spokesman John F. Kirby admitted Friday that some Americans were having trouble moving through Taliban-controlled checkpoints in Afghanistan, contradicting what President Joe Biden told the nation less than two hours before.

Asked why the U.S. appeared not to be undertaking rescue and retrieval missions to help Americans reach the Kabul airport, as Britain and France appeared to be doing for their citizens, Kirby acknowledged reports of Americans in trouble.
