Matt Kibbe talks to Khalid Ramizy, CEO of the Afghanistan Economic and Legal Studies Organization, about the situation in Kabul during the departure of American forces. Khalid successfully managed to flee to Albania with his family, where he was able to find safety, but it took extraordinary cunning and great risk to escape the country. Khalid was also a particular target for the Taliban as the leader of a free-market think tank in Afghanistan. Those who wish to stand up for freedom in the Middle East are taking their lives into their own hands.
