The Taliban straight up said that they would kill or capture as many US troops as they could, unless the ID of all US citizens & SIVs wee handed to them.
To be fair - this was bitterly opposed by the Pentagon & Defense.
They were overruled by POTUS himself via Jake Sullivan & Susan Rice. Both know that a massacre of US troops sinks ten entire regime and may lead to criminal charges.
For them & their fellow crooks.
