​​American stuck in Afghanistan tells Chris Cuomo 'I don’t believe in anybody anymore'

An American citizen, now stuck in Afghanistan after working with the U.S. military as an interpreter, joined Cuomo Prime Time by phone Monday night where she shared her story, and her fears after the last American plane left the country. The interpreter, going by Sara to protect her identity, said she had 37 people living with her from various families she was hoping to help with safe passage out of the country. Despite being in constant contact with the State Department, Sara was unable to get out of Afghanistan and now appears to have lost faith.

“I don’t know anymore what to believe anymore. I don’t believe in anybody anymore because they’ve been fooling me for past ten days. Back and forth. Back and forth. Stories after stories,” Sara said. “I know I have a group of people who is supporting me and helping me, and they’re working very hard for me to leave this country…And I don’t know what to believe anymore. I am completely speechless. I don’t know what to say, but I just can’t believe no one told me that this was the last flight.”

Now, with the military gone and between 100 and 200 Americans still in Afghanistan, the Biden administration will depend on diplomacy to get the rest of the Americans out, but Sara is not optimistic.

“They left us to whom? To those people who — they were always wanting to kill us?” Sara said. “And now I’m by myself here with 37 people? This is my fear. That if Americans could not help me when they were on the ground, how will they help me now when no one is here? That’s my question.”
