  • A June 11 State Department memo obtained by Fox News authorized the “discontinuation of the establishment, and the termination of, the Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau (CCR),” it was reported Wednesday night.
  • The CCR, formed under Trump-era Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, was assigned to provide “aviation, logistics, and medical support capabilities for the Department’s operational bureaus, thereby enhancing the secretary’s ability to protect American citizens overseas in connection with overseas evacuations in the aftermath of a natural or man-made disaster.”
  • The memo obtained by Fox News was described as being “sensitive but unclassified.” It was signed by Deputy Secretary of State Brian McKeon.
  • The CCR could have assisted in evacuating thousands of American citizens and allies trapped behind Taliban lines in Afghanistan.
