Nominating a Black woman to SCOTUS would not simply be a symbolic act — it would mark the start of a righting of a particular history in this country that has undervalued brilliant Black jurists and shaped Fed courts as a bulwark for white supremacy.

In 2008 the UN Security Council affirmed that “rape and other forms of sexual violence can constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity or a constitutive act with respect to genocide.” The reports of the Taliban raping men and women are credible and cannot be ignored.

At least two interviewees said they have been “raped by members of the Taliban.”

Damning report by @hrw + @OutRightIntl on how one of the most vulnerable groups of Afghans has been impacted by the Taliban’s ascent. LGBTQ Afghans exist. They’ve existed for as long as Afghanistan has existed. And their existence has been in peril for just as long. Now more so.

The return of the Taliban in Afghanistan has been a disaster for human rights—and LGBT Afghans are among those who have been harmed the most. New report by @hrw and @OutRightIntl .

This is potentially significant. In conversations with the admin over the last several months we’ve received signaling about the direction this operation would take and this tracks. We do, however, need to address the thousands of Humanitarian Parole applicants still in limbo.

Big if true. We would be supportive of the Biden admin using an expedited U.S. Refugee Admissions Program process in Qatar that would have the potential to immediately put thousands of Afghans on a pathway to green card — as reported by @axios .

Remember how most Afghans fortunate enough to escape the Taliban and make it to the inside of a plane left Afghanistan when you see images of Taliban leaders flying on private jets to negotiate the ransom for the 38 million hostages they’ve taken.

Norway has had some of the most inhospitable policies toward Afghans in Europe, w/record deportations a few yrs ago. Yet it rolls out the red carpet for a man complicit in a 2008 attack that left a Norwegian journalist dead and nearly hit current Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre,

After the Norwegian Prime Minister announced that he was unaware of the presence of Anas Haqqani during the Taliban delegation's visit to Norway, the list of the group's delegation, which reached @AFIntlBrk , shows that he traveled to the country under another pseudonym.
