Readers Write: Let Al speak for all Afghans

NY CBS Channel 2’s unannounced, last-minute cancellation Aug. 16 of the “United States of Al” repeat episode will not soothe America’s guilt. The Biden administration’s incompetent planning for the evacuation of thousands of our own citizens along with Afghans who served as interpreters or worked for Americans will do nothing to save their lives. The Taliban will extract their revenge in coming days, weeks and months for those citizens who worked with us during the 20-year war in Afghanistan.

It is too bad that no one in the Biden administration paid attention to the public service announcement at the end of one episode. Two of the actors, Adhir Kalyan who plays Al, the Afghan interpreter, and Parker Young, who plays Riley, the Marine, promoted a private organization dedicated to helping Afghan citizens, who put their lives on the line for us, to America.

CBS should be ashamed of themselves for promoting Taliban-style censorship to America. They have the moral courage of the Cowardly Lion from the land of Oz, known as Hollywood. Watch how they will find a way to weasel out of their previous legal contract to produce a second season of “United States of Al.”
