The U.S. spent more than $80 billion equipping and training the Afghan military, but not all of that money went toward weapons. And the Biden administration didn't "gift" equipment to the Taliban.

"That is totally ridiculous," Barnett Rubin, a senior fellow at the Center for International Cooperation at New York University, said in an email. "If you give a gift to A, and then B steals the gift, it is not fair to say that you gave a gift to B."

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said at an Aug. 17 White House press briefing that the Taliban had recovered a "fair amount" of military equipment the U.S. provided to the Afghan National Security Forces.

"We don't have a complete picture, obviously, of where every article of defense materials has gone," he said. "But certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the Taliban. And obviously, we don't have a sense that they are going to readily hand it over to us at the airport."

Reuters reported that, while the Biden administration doesn't yet have definitive numbers, intelligence assessments estimate the Taliban has recovered more than 2,000 armored vehicles and up to 40 aircraft. That includes U.S.-supplied Humvees and Black Hawk helicopters.

"Those Black Hawks were not given to the Taliban," Sullivan said during the briefing. "They were given to the Afghan National Security Forces to be able to defend themselves."

Over the course of the war in Afghanistan, the U.S. spent more than $83 billion building up the Afghan military, according to an August report from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. More than $28 billion of U.S. aid went to "defense articles and services, including weapons, ammunition, vehicles, night-vision devices, aircraft, and surveillance systems," according to a separate report published in December.
Biden is an incompetent illegitimate weapons provider for terrorists just like Obama Bin Lying was.

A pox on both of them their households and all the generations after them.

Biden ignored his military and CIA/Intel advisors. He relied, instead, on his own dementia-ravaged mind and the advice given to him by his handlers, whoever they maybe. This latest report by one of our Top Generals, who was ignored by Biden, makes it clear that Biden was most responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal clusterfu@k and for leaving Americans behind.


If the top guy in Afghanistan was telling the White House that they didn’t have much as time to evacuate as they hoped and and that there weren’t enough troops left to evacuate in the optimal way, what the hell was Biden thinking in pressing ahead?

I am sure Biden's handlers have made it clear that this question is one they definitely don't want him answering.

How do you lose the war, run for your lives, and then leave a large enough force behind to secure the nation? Do tell.

The military and CIA/Intel advisors are the people who have been running this shitshow for 20 years, and lost the war. They talked both Obama and Trump staying for another 9 years and wasting billions of dollars. Why should Biden listen to any of them any longer? They've been spectacularly wrong about this war from the beginning.

Trump is an incompetent commander in chief who released 15,000 ISIS and Taliban terrorists into the while during his administration, and handed Afghanistan back to the Taliban.

How could this ever have ended any differently?

Look, everyone gets that the Afghanistan withdrawal and the border clusterfucks are Biden's and Biden's alone.

That makes your desperate attempt to pin it on Trump pathetic.

We get that.
