US military dogs got seats on planes heading out of Afghanistan as Kabul fell to the Taliban. Many Afghan interpreters and facilitators, as well as ordinary citizens, were not so lucky.
Places were saved on evacuating US military aircraft for life-saving canines on Sunday. The military dogs carried out countless potentially lethal missions as bomb sniffers.
Some observers, however, criticize that decision, noting that the evacuation of the dogs appears more important than the Afghan nationals who’ve been working for the U.S. military.
