NU@Noon: The Secret Gate: A true story of courage and sacrifice during the collapse of Afghanistan

In the summer of 2021, Sam Aronson, SSH ’12, a young State Department official, volunteered to join the skeleton team of remaining diplomats in Afghanistan, tasked with processing more than 120,000 Afghan civilians clamoring to be evacuated from Kabul’s airport. 
As chaos at the gates increased, Sam eventually discovered “Glory Gate,” a secret entrance used by CIA, the army’s Delta Force, and other undercover groups. Sam knew he could independently rescue families by covertly guiding them from a gas station, through a market, and across a four lane road where he’d bring them to safety — his career and life increasingly at risk as the clock was ticking.
Hear Sam’s incredible true story firsthand, which is now the subject of bestselling book “The Secret Gate: A True Story of Courage and Sacrifice During the Collapse of Afghanistan” by Mitchell Zuckoff.
