After twenty years of fighting the Taliban, these douchebags are depending on them for security. This should have never happened. Thanks, Dems, for installing a senile corruptocrat as Commander in Chief. Trump was right.
U.S. military officials said the United States “will continue to coordinate” with the Taliban in providing safe passage to the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, where suicide bombers carried out an attack that killed 12 U.S. servicemembers and injured 15 others.
Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr., commander of U.S. Central Command, said during a press briefing Thursday that the evacuation effort out of the Harmid Karzai International Airport will continue, and that the U.S. military had been sharing “information with the Taliban” to help prevent such attacks.
“We share versions of this information with the Taliban, so that they can actually do some searching out there for us. And we believe that some attacks have been thwarted by them,” he said. “We cut down the information we give the Taliban, they don’t get the full range of information that we have, but we give them enough to act time and space to try and prevent these attacks.”
McKenzie said he expected such attacks to continue and that the U.S. military is doing everything it can to be prepared for those attacks.
Well, looks like your Taliban pals aren’t doing much good since ISIS just killed 12 service members at the Kabul airport.
Biden ignored warnings to keep at least 2,500 troops on the ground in Afghanistan to help with negotiations between Afghanistan and the Taliban. Trump would have never pulled out in a way that left the Taliban with American weapons and equipment or placed American lives in jeopardy. The common sense tactical thing to do is have troops and close air support in place before evacuation. Let the enemy know that if they make any moves toward the embassy and airport, they will get turned into mush by AC-130s and Apache attack helicopters. Then you start running the planes 24/7. Last ones to leave turn out the lights.
