Granholm Chartered Military Jet to Ukraine as US Struggled To Evacuate Americans From Afghanistan

Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm earlier this week chartered a military jet to attend a diplomatic summit in Ukraine as the Pentagon struggled to evacuate Americans and allies from Afghanistan with limited time and operational resources, sources told the Washington Free Beacon.

Granholm’s military flight took place amid the United States’ frantic effort to airlift tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan ahead of the Taliban’s Aug. 31 deadline and as the Department of Defense was forced to call in civilian airlines to bolster its strained evacuation fleet.
