This is an evacuation from an active war zone. If an American shows up at the airport and says "this is my family," I don't care if they're followed by three mice and a giraffe—you let them in.

Quibbling about visas and stamps can happen when the plane lands on the other side. t.co/iRvLVIAGps

It is grotesque that media repeats the political language of "Americans who want to leave," when "Americans who don't want to leave" is being used to categorize those who WANT to leave, but are being refused permission to take their Afghan families.
They can't just abandon them.

Stay out of our phones, @Tim_Cook.

Apple's entire brand is built on the idea that you respect that boundary. The minute you roll out a "client-side scanning" system, you have broken that promise.

Whatever you're doing here is not worth that. t.co/NbeqvbYdzx

Somebody needs to tell @Tim_Cook and @Apple's board that if this many people are wading through *two-thousand word* tracts on the future cost of their proposed "client-side scanning" system, Apple needs to correct course:

"Delay" the rollout. Blame new research. Kill it quietly.

Every iPhone will search itself for whatever Apple wants, or for whatever Apple is directed to want. They are inventing a world in which every product you purchase owes its highest loyalty to someone other than its owner.

Apple’s new system, regardless of how anyone tries to justify it, will permanently redefine what belongs to you, and what belongs to them. t.co/k3SxaFSJEJ

Today, the country this describes is Afghanistan. Tomorrow, the country this describes might be my own.

If there are any lessons to be learned from this tragic sequel to Saigon, you can be assured, we will not learn them.

Apple's system was never designed to protect children, as they would have you believe, but rather to protect their brand.

How long do we have left before the iPhone in your pocket begins quietly filing reports about encountering “extremist” political material, or about your presence at a "civil disturbance"? t.co/k3SxaGakwh

Apple’s proposal to make their phones inform on and betray their owners marks the dawn of a dark future.

The government's new declassification reforms are... classified.

“We don’t negotiate surrenders.” —Donald Rumsfeld, 2001.

Now, some are looking back at a missed chance that could have halted America’s longest war in its infancy.

twenty years of war and we're back where we started.

at least the politicians & military-industrial complex that forced it on us for personal profit will be forced to give back most of the public's $6,400,000,000,000 to avoid jail time—right?

...right?

Here is the well-qualified final word on the Secretary of State's "This is not Saigon" statement——from a Vietnam vet (1965-1966), reporter among the last to be evacuated from Saigon (1975), who also covered the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan (1980).

In light of the deeply troubling Facebook VR thing this week, this talk struck me as extremely far-sighted and valuable—well worth watching.

I found the thing fascinating, but for those looking for the Facebook-specific part, it begins just after 30 minutes in. t.co/QB2hq5mdR4
