Interpreter Granted Asylum After Taliban Attacks Family
By Harold Hutchison
At least one more interpreter for American forces who have been fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan will make it into the United States. Mohammed, aka “Yoda,” was in the news this past October when his father was killed and his three-year-old brother kidnapped by the Taliban.
According to a report by the Washington Free Beacon, the grant of asylum by the State Department ends a three-year wait for “Yoda” – but a backlog of over 7,000 applications remains.
