The United States has resumed evacuations from Kabul, Afghanistan, following an eight-hour pause. According to The Daily Wire, the hours-long pause on exiting flights was due to concerns around the evacuation base in Qatar becoming severely overcrowded and threatening to become a "humanitarian crisis."

CNN's Clarissa Ward also indicated to the network Friday that no flights had left the Kabul airport in at least eight hours, leaving her to question the logistics of evacuating 10,000 to 15,000 Americans and allies.

"I'm sitting here for 12 hours in the airport, 8 hours on the airfield and I haven't seen a single US plane take off. How on Earth are you going to evacuate 50,000 people in the next two weeks? It just, it can't happen," Ward told CNN.
