Shameless Biden Has Given $2.35 Billion to Ruthless Taliban in Aftermath of Disastrous Afghanistan Withdrawal

Remember the heartbreaking stories, as shameless Joe Biden inexplicably withdrew all remaining U.S. forces from Afghanistan in the worst and most embarrassing United States military departure from a foreign country since the fall of Saigon in 1975? Of course, you do.

The last US military planes left Afghanistan on August 30, 2021. Following that flight, Taliban soldiers entered the airport and declared victory.

As my colleague Streiff reported on September 3, 2021, “By any conceivable measure, the US evacuation was a disgrace.” Streiff added:

We know that thousands of Afghans holding special immigration visas (SIV) were left behind. We know hundreds, if not thousands, of American citizens and green card holders, were also left behind.

US troops turned away some American citizens from Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA…or whatever they are calling it today) and prevented them from leaving Afghanistan.

Suspected terrorists and sex offenders were evacuated, while American school kids were left behind. Many Afghans who did succeed in leaving may have been subjects of human trafficking rather than humanitarian efforts; see Joe Biden’s ‘Historic’ Afghanistan Evacuation Turned Into a Sex Slavery Market.

Yet, in the nearly two years since Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal, the most inept president in U.S. history has given the Taliban — a brutal Islamist-extremist terrorist group — roughly 2.3 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars. Needless to say, the U.S. stands as Taliban-controlled Afghanistan’s top patron.

In April, John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (SIGAR), told Congress during an oversight hearing that taxpayer money could indeed be propping up the Taliban.

I cannot assure this committee or the American taxpayer we are not currently funding the Taliban.

We simply do not know since the Department of State, USAID, the U.N., and other agencies are refusing to give us basic information that we or any other oversight body would need to ensure safe stewardship of tax dollars.

More troubling, State and USAID have instructed their employees not to talk to SIGAR, and in one recent instance, State told one of its contractors not to participate in a SIGAR audit.

In other words, the Biden administration has refused to cooperate with Afghan oversight efforts.

Team Biden’s refusal to cooperate, particularly in light of America’s lost lives and treasures in a war that could have ended much differently, continues while Biden instead obsesses over transgender insanity, “gender-affirming care,” on-demand abortion, which he obscenely calls “necessary healthcare,” and his support for males beating the hell out of females in women’s sports categories.

According to SIGAR, the Taliban is “comfortable accepting foreign support insofar as they can closely monitor the organizations, including restricting and controlling them, and claim some credit for the provision of the benefits,” while USAID told the watchdog group that “Taliban interference in humanitarian assistance is the main barrier to beneficiaries accessing aid in 2023.”

This is maddening beyond perception, yet Biden’s Big Lie about his “successful” Afghanistan withdrawal continues. As my colleague Jennifer Van Laar reported on Monday, the parents of U.S. service members killed in a suicide bombing at the Kabul Airport during the botched Afghanistan withdrawal spoke at a congressional field hearing, with a Gold Star “mom-in-law” calling the attack murder.

My name is Christy Shamblin, and I’m proud to be Sgt. Nicole Gee’s mom-in-law. Her mama, Becky Herrera, would be here today, but she unfortunately passed before Nicole, and I like to think that she was waiting for her in heaven.

When your child is murdered, you feel there is no justice, and you question your very existence. … You gain small footings every day to make a new chapter in your lives.

[…]

When our leaders, including the Secretary of Defense and our Commander in Chief, called this evacuation a success, as if there should be celebration, it is like a knife in the heart for our families and for the people who came back and for every service member that served over this 20-year war.

I can only imagine tragically losing one of my kids needlessly, only to have the very people responsible for the debacle that led to that death not only declare victory in retreat but then turn around and send billions of dollars to the very terrorists who killed my kid.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues to tilt at “white supremacist” windmills and calls half of America “semi-fascists.”
