We have all seen the mayhem that has been Afghanistan, the Taliban, our Allies and the Biden Administration, as defined by Jake Sullivan, Tony Blinkin, General Mark Milley, General Kenneth F. McKenzie, Jr., Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. So, it is really not a surprise to find out, as published yesterday in the Gateway Pundit, that…
several top US Generals were on vacation in early August as the Taliban took control of Kabul in just hours. Biden’s senior White House staff were also prepared to take vacation the Friday before Kabul fell to the terrorist organization. Jen Psaki left messages to any reporters who tried to contact her. She was on vacation
But that is not the worst of it. Now, we find out that “Biden Turned Down Taliban Offer to Allow US to Control Kabul and the Airport.” That’s right, America — we now learn from The Washington Post that:
“In a hastily arranged meeting, senior US military leaders in Doha – including General McKinzie spoke with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban political wing. We have a problem Baradar said, according to the US official. “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. McKenzie, aware of these orders, told Baradar that the US mission was only to evacuate American citizens, Afghan allies and others at risk. The Unites States, he told Baradar, needed the airport to do that. On the spot, an understanding was reached, according to other US officials: The United States could have the airport until August 31st. But the Taliban would control the city.”
So, now we know that the Taliban would have stopped short of Kabul for a period of time to allow the US complete control of the city while it was evacuating its citizens, allies and others — no Taliban checkpoints to negotiate, no “kill list” shared with the Taliban, no Taliban going house to house looking for Afghan collaborators who worked with the US in any number of capacities. But. just like the decision to abandon our secure airbase at Bagram, our Generals let us down once again.
Yet they do not feel compelled to step down — instead they look into the camera lens and tell us that things are this way because that is what Trump left us. The media likes to remind us that the Trump Administration was negotiating with the Taliban. Well, here is a news flash — when you are trying to leave a country, without any additional harm coming to your people and equipment, you start negotiation with the enemy who seems to control the outcome. Henry Kissinger spent years negotiating with North Vietnam.
There was a negotiation between the UN Command and the North Koreans that led to the signing of an Armistice suspending hostilities on the Korean peninsula. Grant negotiated with Lee at Appomattox and the Allies negotiated with the Nazis and the Japanese to bring WWII to an end. So, yes, Trump negotiated with the Taliban and now Biden and his people are negotiating with the Taliban, and it appears that they are not very good at it. Who in their right mind invites the people you have been killing for the past 20 years to be the guardians of your departure from Afghanistan?! Could anyone conceive a more unrealistic plan — Perhaps Susan Rice could!
As I write this, the television has just flashed the statement that ‘all US troops have left Afghanistan’ — America’s longest war is over! Or is it?
It was just 20 years ago that America was attacked and the Twin Towers came crashing down killing some 3,000 Americans. We went to war against the terror group Al-Qaeda; but, in order to get to them, we first had to engage their sponsors – the Taliban.
And the good news was — We Won! But we proceeded over the ensuing 20 years to “Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory.” After trillions of dollars and over 2,500 American lives, we have not left just some terrorist groups … rather, we have left an entire terrorist nation — one of the best equipped in the world — as we depart with our tail tucked between our legs.
So, with our final departure, it will be incumbent on all Americans to demand to know exactly what happened. Why we have been told for years that the Afghan National Army, a force of some 300,000 fighters fully equipped with all the resources that they needed — why did they fold like a cardboard suitcase in a rainstorm?
Why did the final Administration to have to deal with this issue do it so poorly and without the accountability the American public deserves? So, with our final departure, I submit the war is not over. It has entered a new phase — one that we are familiar with from our past — terrorist attacks against America here at home.
For at least the past four years, we have not had to give a thought to the idea that someone going to the shopping mall or a nightclub might get caught in a terrorist attack — remember when that was a consideration? Well, the bad news is that it is once again a consideration. That is what 80 million Americans voted for — or did they?
