Since the fall of Kabul to the Taliban last week, everything and everyone has been focused on Hamid Karzai International Airport and the massive military operation to get thousands of Americans and Afghan allies out of the country.

Guest: Eric Schmitt, a senior writer covering terrorism and national security for The New York Times.
