Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is demanding answers from President Joe Biden about a “kill list” of American and Afghan names U.S. officials or military members might have given to the Taliban prior to the military leaving the area.
Biden admitted that a list might have been given to Taliban members so they would know who to let through checkpoints and into the Kabul airport to leave the country.
Republicans including Rubio do not feel that the Taliban should have been given this information under and circumstances when the group has been reportedly targeting Americans and Afghan allies, however.

Rubio has vowed to hold up Biden nominees to national security positions until he gets answers to his questions.
