By Wes Walker,
Remember that ‘Blood on His Hands’ song written about Biden after the fall of Kabul? The reality is even worse than that… and a report proves it.
Team Biden looked America in the eye and lied to our faces about getting everybody out of Afghanistan. They even bragged about their great success.
It was only after the fact that we had any sense of just how many people were stranded under the regime of a hostile government. For many of those who were stranded, it ended badly.
That part we already knew. We assumed the worst. But we didn’t know precisely HOW badly it ended for the people stranded.
That picture is finally coming into focus.
The Taliban has killed hundreds of Afghan former military, security, and government officials since the U.S.-backed government fell to the insurgents two years ago, the United Nations said in a report released Tuesday.
Taliban leader Amir al-Mu’minin verbally granted amnesty to Afghans who aided the U.S. and allied militaries in their 20-year war to stamp out Islamist insurgents but instead have retaliated against former Army and security personnel, the investigation found. At least 200 were arbitrarily killed, and hundreds more were subjected to torture, disappearances, and imprisonment outside of legal proceedings between Aug. 15, 2021 and June 30, 2023, the U.N.’s humanitarian arm in Afghanistan said.
A “climate of fear” exists among former government officials and members of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF), the U.N. Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) wrote in the report. —DailyCaller
Remember when Jen Psaki, John Kirby, and others assured us that there were
Tens of thousands of former government and security officials and Afghan National Army soldiers remain in Afghanistan who, for various reasons, have not joined the scramble of Afghans fleeing the country since the Taliban takeover in August 2021, according to The Wall Street Journal. No country has recognized the Taliban as a legitimate government.
UNAMA documented more than half of the extrajudicial killings in the four months since the Taliban took over Afghanistan and an additional 70 in 2022. In most cases, investigators could not track down the member or branch of the de facto government perpetrating the killings. —DailyCaller
The reports of the killings and torture of those left behind are the cause-and-effect consequence of policy failures of Joe Biden and his advisors, who tried to score an arbitrary P.R. ‘win’ by wrapping up the War on Terror ahead of the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
The Foreign Relations Committee published a report showing the scope of how many were left behind. And the numbers were ugly.
U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today published a report entitled “ Left Behind: A Brief Assessment of the Biden Administration’s Strategic Failures during the Afghanistan Evacuation ,” to give an overview of what went wrong in the planning and execution of the Biden Administration’s hazardous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“While there is substantial disagreement about the policy to leave Afghanistan, Americans share outrage over how the United States withdrew last Augustx and what that failure has done to America’s standing in the world,” said Risch. “My report describes how the Biden Administration’s failure of duty allowed for a quick Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and a botched withdrawal that left hundreds of Americans and tens of thousands of Afghan partners behind. The United States will have to deal with the fallout of this failure for years to come, so it is imperative that we mitigate the strategic implications to ensure we do not repeat mistakes.” — Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
That is the pool of people the regime Joe propped up in Afghanistan has been terrorizing and exploiting.
For what, the hope of a Ground Zero photo op? Disgraceful.
