WH commits to evacuating Afghan interpreter

White House chief of staff Ron Klain committed Tuesday to evacuate from Afghanistan the Afghan interpreter who helped rescue then-Sen. Joe Biden and two other senators from a snowstorm in 2008.

In a Wall Street Journal report published earlier Tuesday, the interpreter — identified only as Mohammed while in hiding — pleaded to be transported out of the country now under Taliban control.

“Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family,” Mohammed told the Journal. “Don’t forget me here.”

On Tuesday evening, Klain told MSNBC he did not believe Biden had yet seen the Journal report, but that “we are going to try to get every person out.”
