If Trump had done this he would have been justifiably impeached, convicted and removed from office.

MTG is trying to impeach Biden. IF the GOP caucus towed the line only a handful of vulnerable democrats would be needed to make it a reality.

DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH.

yeah if Trump did anything close to this they would have put his head on a pike.

Wow I can’t believe this. Are joe and his cabinet just literally that incompetent or were they trying to aid the Taliban?

You left out that because of Biden’s mismanagement of Afghanistan the Taliban are now also in possession of cassette tapes of MC Hammer’s Greatest Hits and VHS tapes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Seriously, the equipment being left behind is at least a decade older than the age of most of the US troops who left and is inferior than even what Bangladesh or Ethiopia has.

The scariest thing the Taliban inherited from Ghani’s government is this:

Because the Taliban is now the Government of Afghanistan, they now have access to at least a trillion dollars in rare earth minerals trade. I’m not sure what natural gas or oil distribution would bring on the international market but add that to the mix along with how much the Taliban made off opium and you are looking at some serious bank. You are clutching at pearls over the fact the Taliban grabbed rusted versions of this (yes, that is a propeller):

when it can easily purchase a bucket load of these:

So you’re either:
a)Worrying about the wrong thing or
b)Trying desperately in a show of bad faith hyperpartisanship to smear anything and everything on Biden to see what sticks.
Not a good look either way.

Trump did this in Syria, and wasn’t impeached.

My $0.05 - The Taliban took over Afghanistan with the bare minimum of effort whilst wearing sandals. The equipment left behind is pretty typical of a US withdrawal unfortunately. It didn’t change the outcome and won’t alter the future of Afghanistan. Considering China and Pakistan aren’t too worried about this (and both countries desperately wanted to prop up Ashraf Ghani after the US left) indicates what’s left behind really doesn’t change anything. The media is focusing on the wrong things. No surprise there.

Oh I’m aware, my company is the one that converted them, and contracted their operation.

And those planes are scarier than exported sukhois. You don’t need a crack team of mechanics to maintain them, and they are a much better friend to friendlies on the ground due to their ability to loiter.

Unlike the Black Hawks, which are liability in part because they’re not very old, this is a capability the Afghanis could maintain. With the A-29s sensors and optics, they can be a potent threat to our spec ops teams looking to interdict terrorists or other clandestine groups operating in Afghanistan into the next decade.

Same to the up armored vehicles; much like how the Kurds struggle to fight against ISIS who captured them from the Iraqis, our teams or anyone else who goes into Afghanistan will now need to carry some serious hardware to crack them.

The A-29 is the right thing to worry about, for future reference. Whatever airframes are not flown out should be destroyed.

As to the rest, looking at how these same weapons destabilized Iraq and given Afghanistan’s likelihood to fall into a similar state of in-fighting and disarray, it isn’t something to just ignore.

That doesn’t make the claims wrong, or the danger unreal.

That program started under the Obama Administration; this is what Ambassador Stevens was busy negotiating in Benghazi.

But the scale of that program doesn’t come close to what we supplied the Afghan military with. There were little to no vehicles involved, no air component, far fewer contractors on the ground to offer logistics. Not to mention the FSA was smaller than the Afghan military by about a factor of 10.

The Kurds, equally, never stopped fighting in Syria. Any weapon of ours in their hands was well spent. They needed them to counteract the weapons ISIS captured from the Iraqis.

The Afghans meanwhile… well, we’ll see how their rebellion in Jalal Abad turns out. But the majority clearly will just be a waste or will fall into the hands of an enemy.

What crazy insane left-wing publication did you get your information from? MC Hammer tapes? What’s left behind doesn’t change anything? The media is focusing on the wrong things?

You are frothing at the mouth bat s–t insane man. I don’t even know what to say. I feel sorry for you and you need some real help.

The 28 Cessna 208’s are each loaded down with over 30 million dollars worth of top secret surveillance gear.

Those are all probably in Russia and China by now.

Yes, you tax dollars at work … arming the Taliban.

Thanks Joe!

Yea, I know, the Taliban is poor and has subject systematic racism and religious intolerance.

This is not good. At the very least we look like a weak, pathetic, and stupid country now. Sillie is correct. Russia and China are definitely smiling, and however formidable the Afghans were on their own soil, they’re about 1000x more dangerous now.

And any military “secrets” we thought we had over there are secrets no longer.
