This is humiliating and disgusting. Our Defense Department needs to be cleaned out.
So Biden decided to wait until the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to make some kind of political point? (H/T WeeWeed)
Wondering about that U.S. military equipment?
Scenes at the Kabul Airport:
Meanwhile, what happened to the Bagram Air Base in Bagram? According to Wikipedia:
As part of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Bagram Air Base was handed back to the Afghan government on 1 July 2021. U.S. troops left the base entirely after nearly 20 years. The last remaining U.S. troops left the base by shutting off the electricity and slipping away in the night without notifying the Afghan Armed Forces. The base was looted by local civilians soon after US forces left the area.
On 15 August 2021, Afghan troops stationed there gave up their positions to the Taliban, losing control of the airfield.
And the Kandahar Airport?
In May 2021, the Resolute Support Mission departed the base and handed it over to the Afghan military.
