Speaker of the House Pelosi released a statement Saturday expressing her concerns for the Taliban's treatment of people. "The Taliban must know the world is watching its actions. We are concerned about reports regarding the Taliban's brutal treatment of all Afghans, especially women and girls. The U.S., the international community and the Afghan government must do everything we can to protect women and girls from inhumane treatment by the Taliban." At the time of this report, President Biden has yet to release a statement or hold a press conference following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.
