    The Biden administration has quietly warned American companies with large business interests in Russia that their employees there may be taken hostage in retaliation for sanctions.  With the ruble plunging and US and European banks banning all business with Russia while it continues its assault on Ukraine, many American businesses are pulling their money out of the country.  Now, Biden administration officials are also warning those companies that unless they extract staff, they may be arrested or taken hostage, according to unnamed sources cited by NBC on Tuesday.  There are also growing concerns over the fact that both the EU and Russia have now closed their airspace to each other, making it harder for anyone who wants to leave Russia to get out of the country.  Police on patrol in Red Square in Moscow, Russia, 01 March 2022.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Hundreds of volunteers are taking giant balloons on test flights Saturday at Citi Field in preparation for the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Teams at the annual Balloonfest make sure the giant characters can withstand wind and other conditions before parade day.

So we’ll work through it, we’ll see how the balloon reacts, and we’ll also create some non-traditional weather experiences just to push it to the limit to see how it reacts,” the parade’s executive producer Will Cross told CBS2’s John Elliott. The test run also helps first-time balloon handlers get the hang of things.

    The airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, is pure chaos and evacuation flights haven’t taken off in hours, CNN’s chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward told the network Friday. Ward, speaking live from Afghanistan, detailed scenes from the airport in Kabul, where swarms of people are desperately trying to get through the gates in the hopes of catching a flight out of the country. Ward said she and her team had been at the airport for 12 hours “and on the inner field for eight hours” before pushing back on how the administration is speaking about the situation. “During the last eight hours, the time that we’ve been waiting here, we have not seen a single U.S. flight evacuate people,” Ward reported. “And so one U.S. flight took off about half an hour to an hour ago, but it was filled with U.S. servicemen and women. The people who have been sitting on the tarmac for the last ten hours have not been able to get on a flight.” WATCH: The CNN correspondent also highlighted how the reality in Kabul differs greatly from the...
    MSNBC’s Tehran bureau chief Ali Arouzi reported Sunday on the “The Mehdi Hasan Show” that the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan had been “relatively peaceful” as Americans were evacuating the chaos in helicopters. Arouzi said, “The country is essentially now in the hands of the Taliban for all intents and purposes. They’ve taken over Kabul. The president, or should I right now say the former president of Afghanistan, has fled the country. The Taliban has taken over the presidential palace. They’ve renamed the country the Islamic Emirates, they’ve taken down the Afghan flag, and hoisted up their own colors. And it’s been a relatively peaceful if you like, process.” He added, “They haven’t had to fire a lot of shots. There hasn’t been a lot of bloodshed in Kabul. It was a pretty straightforward takeover for them. They’ve also taken over the airport. There’s been reports of shots fired at the airport, and Taliban fighters are all over the place. But they’re not in any sort of clashes with US personnel. Although commercial flights have so far been suspended, military evacuation...

In total, the private jet tied to President Biden's point person in the effort to lower greenhouse gas emissions took 16 flights since January — raising questions about how much his family contributed to the problem.  Many of these flights occurred within Massachusetts, including Martha's Vineyard and Boston International Airport. At least two flights took place between Massachusetts and New Jersey. A spokesperson for Kerry told Fox News: "Secretary Kerry travels commercially or via military air in his role as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate."
