Kabul Was Offered, Biden Admin Turned It Down
Reports are out that Biden was offered to keep control of Kabul by the Taliban, he refused. In what is being seen as the most significant neglect of intel and foreign policy in most of our lifetime, we see the complete collapse of the foreign policy of the Biden Administration.
What is needed to be found out is who advised the president on this and where were our military leadership? Were they too involved in trying to force our troops to be ‘woke’ rather than doing their job? A person with no military training who could understand controlling the city until we were ready to leave would have saved us from the mass hostage crises we are now facing. This is not a simple mistake, this is removable from the position for negligence for military officers, and for Biden and his officials, this is impeachment time.
According to the Western Journal:
On Saturday, The Washington Post published a detailed account of events that occurred on Aug. 15, the day the city of Kabul fell to the Taliban.
Six writers collaborated on the article, which they inform readers is the result of “nearly two dozen interviews with U.S. and Afghan officials, a Taliban commander and residents of the city.” Most of these sources wished to remain anonymous.
Buried deep down in the lengthy piece came this startling revelation: “In a hastily arranged in-person meeting, senior U.S. military leaders in Doha — including [Gen. Kenneth] McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command — spoke with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban’s political wing.”
According to the U.S. official, Baradar said, “We have a problem. We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.”
“Throughout the day, Biden had remained resolute in his decision to withdraw all American troops from Afghanistan. The collapse of the Afghan government hadn’t changed his mind,” the Post reported.
“McKenzie, aware of those orders, told Baradar that the U.S. mission was only to evacuate American citizens, Afghan allies, and others at risk. The United States, he told Baradar, needed the airport to do that.
“On the spot, an understanding was reached, according to two other U.S. officials: The United States could have the airport until Aug. 31. But the Taliban would control the city.”
What we have here is astounding.
First, it is doubtful the commander would have acted without direction from either the Biden White House or the Chief of Staff office; either way, this is a failure of epic proportions.
Second, what commander in their right mind would entrust the safety of removing US citizens to terrorists?
The second part is mind-numbing; they thought the Taliban, a terrorist group with no regard for human rights, would assure the safety and well-being of our citizens and allies there.
The worst part is, you still have far-left activists who are trying to defend Biden:
The replies are to the point:
It turns out even the way-out in left-field activist like Melissa Milano, who sat in court and howled and cried over every move that Trump made, now is coming under attack for stupidly protecting an Alzheimer’s patient who should be in a medical ward, not in the White House.
I got in trouble on Twitter for saying my grandmother could do a better job than Biden has done, and she has been dead for 35 years, but I think that was far too kind; my cat could do a better job, at least I could distract the thing with laser lights, make sure he was not pressing any wrong buttons.
