Afghan Recap: The Delay’s Biden Ordered Directly Led To The Afghanistan Withdraw Catastrophe.

First we must go back to when the withdraws were ordered by President Trump. President Trump has previously said he wants “all” troops home by Christmas 2020. The withdrawal should be finished by 15 January, US media reported, just days before Mr Biden’s inauguration as president. America’s top envoy to the multinational military coalition to defeat ISIS admitted in a recent interview that he routinely lied to senior government officials about U.S. troops levels.

“We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there,” outgoing diplomat Jim Jeffrey told Defense One reporter Katie Bo Williams in an interview. The Pro-Biden Department of Defense wanted to hold off the exit until Biden was in office so he could take credit for ending the forever wars. This backfired bigly as a result of Biden’s incompetence.

Rarely has an American president’s predictions been so wrong, so fast, so convincingly as President Biden on Afghanistan. Usually military operations and diplomacy are long; the outcomes, foggy. Not here.

Flashback: Just five weeks ago, President Biden assured Americans: “The likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”

  • In April, Biden said: “We will not conduct a hasty rush to the exit. We’ll do it responsibly, deliberately, and safely.”

Yesterday, the Taliban is entering the Afghanistan capital, Kabul, “from all sides,” a senior Afghan official told Reuters. Jalalabad, the last major city besides the capital not held by the Taliban, fell yesterday.

  • Afghan forces surrendered Bagram Air Base, the Grand Central of America’s longest war, Kabul, The US Embassy, And the Afghan Palace to the Taliban Today.

The Taliban will soon declare the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from the presidential palace in Kabul, an official for the militant group says. That was the name of the country under the Taliban government ousted by U.S.-led forces in 2001. On the 20 Year anniversary of 9/11 the Taliban will be in more control of Afghanistan than they were when 9/11 happened.

How Did Biden Allow This To Happen?

President Joe Biden planed to withdraw the remaining 2,500 U.S. troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, 2021, 20 years to the day after the al Qaeda attacks that triggered America’s longest war.

The disclosure of the plan came on the same day that the U.S. intelligence community released a gloomy outlook for Afghanistan, forecasting “low” chances of a peace deal this year and warning that its government would struggle to hold the Taliban insurgency at bay if the U.S.-led coalition withdraws support.

Biden’s decision would miss the May 1st deadline for withdrawal agreed to with the Taliban by his predecessor Donald Trump. The insurgents had threatened to resume hostilities against foreign troops if that deadline was missed. This gave the Taliban time to begin planning and preparing their dash for the capitol of Afghanistan. Using the disorganization of a drawn out withdraw to their advantage. Trump’s May 1st Deadline could have avoided ALL CONFLICT. The Taliban did not carry out a single attack until after May 1st. Meanwhile Biden did not even begin the withdraw until May 1st. Biden directly put troops in harms way.

Less than 40 Days ago Biden said there is no circumstance where the Taliban would take over. Despite his own intelligence community telling him everyday it was now inevitable. Biden denied the reality of this even when asked by reporters.

Essentially the message the Taliban get from this is that America has their guard down. The Afghanistan government let their guard down because Biden claimed the Taliban stood no chance.

“Do I trust the Taliban? No,” Mr. Biden said. “But I trust the capacity of the Afghan military, who is better trained, better equipped and more competent in terms of conducting war.”

But in the last seven days, the single most stunning week in two decades of war, that military collapsed. Vital cities fell to the Taliban one after another. A sense of panic has taken hold. The Americans, who for years trained the Afghan forces and fought alongside them to hold off the Taliban, are evacuating most of the embassy in Kabul, the capital.

The brutal campaign by the Taliban to recapture the country gained ground earlier this year, when officers in rural outposts began to surrender. It picked up steam almost immediately after American troops began to withdraw, on May 1, and it has only accelerated since.

To no one but Biden supporters surprise the Taliban stayed true to their word and when the May 1st deadline was not met they began taking over cities and bases.

As the Taliban attacked cities across the country, it was clear that government forces were exhausted, disorganized and, without American support, overmatched. Many cities collapsed without a shot being fired as forces surrendered or fled.

The Afghanistan Government is now in control of NO MAJOR CITIES. The Taliban became stronger as time went since Afghanistan Military members surrendered or joined them. The Taliban has also secured an untold amount of American weapons in their take over.

Here is how the Taliban took over most of the country since the United States started its withdrawal:

The Taliban consolidated its control of major highways, levying taxes on motorists. It seized several border crossings and appropriated custom duties. And it intensified an assassination campaign, killing government officials, human rights and civil society activists, police officers, journalists and religious scholars.

Less than 3 days ago Biden’s administration was still covering up the severity of the situation. This led to citizens in Kabul believing they had much more time than they did. Less than 36 hours after the 90 day claim Kabul had fallen and a Taliban flag was raised above the US Embassy.

This led to thousands of troops and American citizens becoming trapped in Kabul thinking they had more time.

Fall Of Kabul Timeline:

3 days Ago

  • US Intelligence Covers For Biden – Tells Kabul They have 90 days
  • Taliban Takes All But 2 cities
  • 1 Airport remained in friendly control (Kabul Airport)

2 Days Ago:

  • At the Kabul airport, expected to be a focal point in the coming days, 3,000 U.S. Marines and soldiers began arriving alongside 600 British soldiers to evacuate their diplomats and citizens.
  • The mission they’ve been assigned “is to support the State Department’s reduction in personnel by the end of the month, so that’s what we’re focused on,” said spokesperson John Kirby. “That’s the timeline we’re focused on.”
  • 2 Days ago still claiming they had until the end of the month to get out.

1 Day Ago:

  • The President’s authorization of 5,000 troops on Saturday included 1,000 who are already on the ground in country, according to a defense official. A battalion of 1,000 troops from the 82nd Airborne Division were redirected to Kabul, instead of their original standby position in Kuwait. The Pentagon had previously announced 3,000 additional troops were on their way, the defense official said.
  • The US Embassy began moving operations to the airport in preparations for the Embassy to fall
  • U.S. Officials made it very easy for the Taliban to pick the last remaining airport as a primary target
  • Taliban Only 6 Miles from Embassy

Today:

  • U.S. forces evacuated diplomatic personnel by military helicopter from the embassy compound to the airport in Kabul.
  • The State Department urged U.S. citizens in Afghanistan to shelter in place citing reports of sporadic gunfire in At Kabul Airport.
  • Flights in and out had to be stopped.
  • In another apparent concession, the Associated Press and Reuters reported Sunday that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani flew out of his country. CNBC has confirmed these reports.
  • Taliban have taken control of the Embassy and the Palace

Happening Right Now

Chaos at Kabul airport: Hundreds want to leave Afghanistan and are panicking. Gunshots can be heard. No security Remains at the airport. There is now no way of Afghanistan for the Embassy staff or the American troops. Biden’s lack of action has stranded American’s in harms way on the other side of the planet.

As I am writing this more troops have arrived. Now over 6,000 Troops in harms way.

In addition the pentagon just announced MORE troops will be sent.


WASHINGTON: The Pentagon authorised another 1,000 troops to help evacuate US citizens and Afghans who worked for them from Kabul, a US official said on Sunday (Aug 15), after the embassy warned the security situation at the city’s airport was changing quickly.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the addition brings the total number of troops in Afghanistan temporarily to 6,000. The soldiers would come from the 82nd Airborne Division, which had been on standby.

Biden may have restarted a war. Evacuations and withdraws should have been done MONTHS AGO!

Thousands of Pakistanis Line Up for Vaccine After Gov’t Shuts Down Cell Service for Unvaccinated

Footage purports to show residents lined up after government deactivates unvaccinated SIM cards.

Footage out of Pakistan purports to show thousands of residents lined up to receive a Covid-19 vaccine after the government in two provinces implemented measures to block cell service for the unvaccinated.

The video shows a man driving down a street passing by a mile-long line of vehicles supposedly queued up to receive the vaccine.

“Since last night thousands of people lining up to get vaccinated in Karachi, Pakistan after Govt. decision to block phone SIM for unvaccinated,” the footage, being promoted on Twitter, is captioned.

Two months ago, the governments of the Punjab and Sindh provinces called for plans to block phone service for unvaccinated people, claiming too many were refusing to get vaccinated despite a rise in Covid delta variant cases.

“At first this was only a proposal, but people have been very hesitant in getting vaccinated so the decision was made,” a spokesman for the Punjab Primary Health department stated in June, not noting a specific date the decision would go into effect.

“The government is trying its best to facilitate people in getting the vaccine,” Sindh information minister Syed Nasi Hussain Shah told the New York Times.

Ahead of the cell phone shut-off, Pakistanis complained life without a phone would be hard, but said they also feared the vaccine.

“It will be hard for me if I can’t use my phone, but I am very scared about the vaccine,” one worker in Lahore told France24.com in June.

A truck driver in Karachi told the Times no one in his 25-member family will take the jab because he’s heard vaccinated people may die in the coming months.

“I have heard that people, after getting the coronavirus jab, will die within the two years…It is the reason that in our extended family of at least 25 people, no one is willing to vaccinate themselves.”

“You can’t force someone to get vaccinated,” lamented one vaccinated teacher, adding, “It makes me a little suspicious.”

The head of Pakistani’s Young Doctor’s Association, Salman Haseeb, insultingly told AFP he believed the public was too stupid to decide whether the vaccine is good for them, saying, “Pakistan’s education level is low. People are also spreading rumors and misinformation about the vaccines.”

Additionally, the Sindh government has also stopped paying unvaccinated government workers in efforts to pressure them into getting vaccinated.

Iranian Operatives Planned To Kidnap A NYC Journalist

Four Iranian intelligence operatives schemed to kidnap a Brooklyn-based journalist and smuggle her to Iran in a bid to silence her criticism of human-rights abuses in the Islamic republic, federal authorities said Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, writer and activist Masih Alinejad acknowledged she was the target, and she did the same in an email to The Post, without commenting further.

A source familiar with the matter also confirmed Alinejad was the target.

Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss, who didn’t identify Alinejad by name, said she would have faced a fate that’s “uncertain at best” if the plan hadn’t been foiled by the FBI.

FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. also said, “This is not some far-fetched movie plot.”

“We allege a group, backed by the Iranian government, conspired to kidnap a US-based journalist here on our soil and forcibly return her to Iran. Not on our watch,” he said.

The ring, led by Iranian intelligence official Alireza Shavaroghi Farahani, allegedly began conspiring to kidnap Alinejad inside the US since as least as early as June 2020.

Earlier, Iranian government officials in 2018 tried in vain to induce her relatives in Iran to invite her to a third country where she would have been arrested or detained and then imprisoned in Iran, authorities said.

Evidence in the case allegedly includes a photo of Alinejad stored on an electronic device used by Farahani.

That photo showed her alongside two other people who were captured by Iranian intelligence, one of whom was later executed while the other was imprisoned in Iran, authorities said.

“Gradually the gathering gets bigger…Are you coming, or should we come for you?” a photo caption in Farsi allegedly said.

The plan to kidnap Alinejad in the US allegedly included hiring private investigators to conduct multiple days of surveillance during which she and members of her household were photographed and recorded on video at and around her Brooklyn home.

The plotters even arranged for a high-definition video livestream of the home to be set up and to be given descriptions of Alinejad’s body language, according to authorities.

Members of the kidnap ring allegedly researched travel routes from Alinejad’s home to a waterfront neighborhood in Brooklyn and looked into the possibility of hiring a company that uses military-style speedboats to evacuate people from New York City.

They also allegedly weighed the possibility of taking her to Venezuela, where the socialist regime has friendly relations with Iran.

Farahani, 50, and the other intelligence operatives — Mahmoud Khazein, 42; Kiya Sadeghi, 34; and Omid Noori, 45 — were charged in a Manhattan federal court indictment with crimes including kidnapping conspiracy, sanctions violations conspiracy, and bank and wire fraud conspiracy.

All four defendants are based in Iran and remain at large, officials said.

Also named in Tuesday’s indictment was Niloufar “Nellie” Bahadorifar, 46, of California, who is alleged to have provided financial services that supported the plot, including arranging a payment to a private investigator for surveillance of Alinejad.

Bahadorifar, who’s originally from Iran, is not accused of being part of the kidnapping plot but was charged Tuesday with conspiring to violate sanctions against Iran, to commit bank and wire fraud, and to commit money laundering, as well as structuring more than $445,000 in cash deposits to evade reporting requirements.

Trump releases A New Statement Criticizing Biden On His Politically Motivated Slow Withdraw Of Troops From Afghanistan

Read Trump’s Statement Below:

I wish Joe Biden wouldn’t use September 11th as the date to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan, for two reasons. First, we can and should get out earlier. Nineteen years is enough, in fact, far too much and way too long. I made early withdraw possible by already pulling much of our billions of dollars of equipment out and, more importantly, reducing our military presence to less than 2,000 troops from the 16,000 level that was there (likewise in Iraq, and zero troops in Syria except for the area where we KEPT THE OIL). Secondly, September 11th represents a very sad event and period for our Country and should remain a day of reflection and remembrance honoring those great souls we lost. Getting out of Afghanistan is a wonderful and positive thing to do. I planned to withdraw on May 1st, and we should keep as close to that schedule as possible.

Breaking: Acting US Ambassador To ukraine Kristina Kvien Says US Is “Considering Deploying More Troops In Ukraine”

Kristina Kvien the acting US Ambassador to Ukraine said “US may consider deploying more troops in Ukraine if needed” The US Currently has 160 troops currently stationed in Ukraine.

U.S. Charge d’Affaires in Ukraine Kristina Kvien said the United States, along with its allies, are deeply concerned about the buildup of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine and in the occupied territories, and Russia will face consequences in the event of aggressive actions against Ukraine, the U.S. Embassy said.

“Let me conclude by reiterating that the United States remains steadfast in its commitment to supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, including Crimea and its territorial waters. To ensure Ukraine achieves its Euro-Atlantic aspirations, we and our partners will continue to support Ukraine as it defends itself from Russia’s aggression. Our leadership has made clear that if Russia acts recklessly or aggressively, there will be costs and consequences,” Kvien said at the authority ceremony from Task Force Illini to Task Force Raven in Yavoriv, Lviv region.

She said that tens of thousands of Russian forces stand near the border with Ukraine and in the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, and are increasing in number. “The United States and our NATO Allies and partners in Europe are deeply concerned about this escalation. And in addition to this provocative buildup of troops, the government of Russia continues to conduct a disinformation campaign, falsely claiming Ukraine is escalating tensions. Let me make crystal clear – my team at the U.S. Embassy and I know first hand – Ukraine was not, and is not, taking provocative actions against Russia. In fact, Ukraine has demonstrated admirable restraint in the face of Russia’s intimidation and aggression,” Kvien said.

The Chargé d’Affaire said that, against the backdrop of Russia’s provocations, it is important to remember that the Ukraine of 2021 – and the Ukrainian armed forces of 2021 – are vastly different than those of 2014.

“The Ukraine of 2021 has achieved significant reform – you have improved rule of law, developed the economy, and fought against corruption. In doing so, Ukraine has become more democratic, more responsive to the will and needs of its people, and more resilient to threats, both external and internal. To better address external threats, the Ukrainian armed forces have become a more capable, more professional fighting force, one of the most capable battle-ready forces in Europe today – and the United States is proud that our cooperative security efforts have supported this impressive development,” she said.

A Senate committee has approved the nomination of Samantha Power as Director of USAID. The Same Samantha power Who’s Motorcade Killed A Child In Cameroon

A Senate committee has approved the nomination of Samantha Power as Director of USAID.

UN ambassador Samantha Power’s trip to Cameroon’s frontlines in the war against Boko Haram started horrifically in 2016 as an armored Jeep in her motorcade struck and killed a young boy who darted into the road.

The incident occurred near the small city of Mokolo, in northern Cameroon, where Power, her aides and accompanying journalists were headed to meet refugees and others displaced by the years of brutal attacks across West Africa.

All those meetings included small children.

Power said she learned of the death with “great sorrow”.

She said she met with the boy’s family to “offer our profound condolences and our grief and heartbreak”.

Power returned to the scene of the bloody accident several hours later to meet the seven-year-old boy’s mother and father, while residents of his village stood solemnly on a sandy expanse.

The motorcade was moving at a fast clip, at times exceeding 60mph, while villagers lined up along the sides of the road. But when the boy darted on to the two-lane highway, there was no time for the sixth car in Power’s convoy to react. The driver was Cameroonian.

At the moment of impact, a man could be seen running up the embankment, with his arms held high, to the street to try to stop the child. A Cameroonian helicopter traveling overhead as part of a large security contingent saw the collision.

The vehicle that hit the boy initially stopped but was ordered by American security forces to continue traveling through the unsecured area. An ambulance in the US caravan immediately attended to him.

The boy was rushed to a local hospital, though his condition was already hopeless, according to people familiar with the incident, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Several US officials were visibly affected, with one Power aide turning away to cry as his boss met with refugee children shortly afterward.

The motorcade moved at a significantly slower pace for the rest of the day.

Officials did not immediately identify the boy. US officials would not comment immediately on any plans for compensation to the boy’s family.

This has to be one of the most war mongering things ever wrote. Following This multiple European countries began getting involved as well.

This came immediately following Biden imposing new sanctions on Russia in response to election interference and cyber hacks.

The Biden administration targeted Russia with sweeping sanctions and diplomatic expulsions Thursday, punishing Moscow for its interference in the 2020 US election, its SolarWinds cyberattack and its ongoing occupation and “severe human rights abuses” in Crimea.The announcement is one of a series of dramatic foreign policy steps that President Joe Biden has taken this week, along with the decision to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan and send an unofficial delegation to Taiwan to express support for its democracy and security, in what may signal a turn toward a tougher, more pragmatic global posture for the US.Thursday’s sanctions come a day after Secretary of State Antony Blinken, speaking for the US and its NATO allies, expressed deep concerns about Russia’s military build-up along the border with Ukraine, and two days after the US intelligence community said in an annual report that Russia “presents one of the most serious intelligence threats to the United States.”

Now Biden has announced a press conference at 4:30 to discuss the situation with Russia.

Breaking: Iran’s atomic energy organization spokesman reportedly suffered an “ankle and head injury” during his visit at the Natanz facility, a new fire has broken out at the nuclear facility.

The New York Times quoted an unnamed U.S. official who confirmed an Israeli role in the power outage, but said “details were still very sketchy.”

Now Reports say that Kamalvandi, hours after the incident in Natanz, visited the site with the head of the AEOI Ali Akbar Salehi and sustained an injury while doing an inspection.

The head of the medical university in the nearby city of Kashan, Alireza Moraveji told local media that the incident happened during inspection and Kamalvandi fell from a height of seven meters (23 feet). He added that Kamalvadi’s overall health is satisfactory, but his ankle and head have sustained fractures.

In the evening, former Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) commander Mohsen Rezaei tweeted that a blaze occurred in Natanz and questioned if this incident and the mysterious attack in July 2020 were not the work of “infiltrators”. He also did not disclose the extent of the blaze in his short tweet.

In June and July 2020, a series of unusual incidents happened in several Iranian military and sensitive sites, including at one part of the Natanz facility on July 2, where uranium enrichment machines were being assembled.

Hours after the July incident, the official government news agency (IRNA) said there was a possibility of Israel’s involvement in the incident. Besides explosions in Iran’s military and nuclear facilities, Israel has also been blamed for the assassination of several of Iran’s nuclear scientist including Mohsen Fakhrizadeh on November 26, 2020 outside Tehran.

IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi seemed to have alluded to the Israeli role in the “accident” at Iran’s Natanz nuclear site on Sunday at a flag-laying ceremony for fallen soldiers at Mount Herzl ahead of Yom HaZikaron on Wednesday.

“The IDF’s operations throughout the Middle East are not hidden from the eyes of our enemies,” Kochavi said. “They’re watching us, seeing our capabilities, and cautiously considering their next steps.”

“Thanks to complex and sophisticated operations – the past year has been one of the safest years known to the citizens of Israel. We’ll continue to act with power and discretion.”

BREAKING: Iran Fires Missile At Israeli Ship In Arabian Sea

A massive potential escalation in the Arabian Sea just outside the Persian Gulf has potentially catapulted the region to a war-footing.

Israeli media is widely reporting that “an Iranian missile was fired at an Israeli ship,” according to a breaking report in Israel’s N12 news.

It’s said to be an Israeli-owned cargo ship named the “Lori”. Based on initial reports it sustained damage, but it doesn’t appear to have been severe enough to disable it, give the vessel has continued on its planned route.

Here are the early details as presented in The Jerusalem Post:

As the ship sailed between Indian and Oman, it was hit by a missile that damaged it, according to N12.The incident was reported to Israeli security officials and to the company’s owners. The ship will continue on its path to India, where the damage will be assessed.

Israeli security officials are examining the possible implications of the incident and estimate that it could mean Iran intends to attack more Israeli ships, according to N12.

Coming fresh off this month’s Israeli-owned Helios Ray incident in the Red Sea, which was the subject of a ‘mystery’ explosion that was subsequently blamed on Iran by Tel Aviv officials, Israel has been quick to point the finger at Iran for this latest developing incident.
