In other news, YouTube has finally decided to ban all anti-vaccine content about two decades too late. But I suppose it's better late than never.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made the call to have the military deliver fuel because of a massive shortage of drivers caused by the Brexit.

Finally, it looks like those rumors about former Afghan officials running away with piles of cash were probably correct. The country's central bank was drained of dollar assets just before the Taliban retook control.

FRANKFURT/MUMBAI, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The Afghan central bank ran down most of its U.S. dollar cash reserves in the weeks before the Taliban took control of the country, according to an assessment prepared for Afghanistan's international donors, exacerbating the current economic crisis.

The confidential, two-page brief, written early this month by senior international economic officials for institutions including the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, said the country's severe cash shortage began before the Taliban took control of Kabul.

It criticized how the central bank's former leadership handled the crisis in the months before the Taliban's conquest, including decisions to auction unusually large amounts of U.S. dollars and move money from Kabul to provincial branches.
