In a shocking turn of events, it seems that President Joe Biden’s attempts to shift blame for the Afghanistan withdrawal onto his predecessor, Donald Trump, may have been entirely baseless. A new report has emerged, revealing that the Taliban flagrantly violated every aspect of the Doha Agreement, instantly rendering it null and void. This means that Biden was not, in fact, bound by any obligation to withdraw from Afghanistan. It’s almost as if he used Trump as a convenient scapegoat to cover up his own incompetence. But hey, who would’ve thought?
To make matters worse, the report directly contradicts the testimony of two top Pentagon officials who appeared before the U.S. Senate, General Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. These two individuals, who are supposedly experts in their field and responsible for the safety and security of the United States, claimed that the Taliban never attacked U.S. forces during the period between the signing of the Doha Agreement and the chaos of the Kabul evacuation. But guess what? They were dead wrong.
Milley and Austin’s testimony is now being thoroughly debunked by a recently published book titled ‘Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End.’ Written by Jerry Dunleavy and James Hasson, this book provides a meticulous account of the Afghanistan disaster and highlights multiple sources, including Pentagon watchdog reports and statements from Biden administration officials. These sources all confirm what we suspected all along – the Taliban did, in fact, attack U.S. forces during that critical timeframe.
In their book, Dunleavy and Hasson cite the Lead Inspector General’s report, which clearly states that the Taliban launched limited attacks on coalition bases. They fired rockets at an airport in Khost where our brave troops were stationed, and they even had the audacity to target Kandahar air base, where hundreds of our soldiers were still present. If that’s not a blatant violation of the Doha Agreement, then what is?
But wait, there’s more. The authors also highlight Exhibit 174 of the Pentagon’s Abbey Gate Report, which reveals an indirect fire attack by the Taliban on Bagram Airforce Base. It’s crystal clear that the Taliban played by their own rules and showed complete disregard for the agreement they had signed. Yet Milley and Austin had the nerve to claim that the only requirement the Taliban met was to not attack us. Talk about selective memory!
If all that weren’t enough, even the Biden administration’s own spokesperson, John Kirby, publicly acknowledged the Taliban’s small, harassing attacks as early as May 3. It’s truly mind-boggling how Milley and Austin could conveniently ignore this glaring evidence and continue to peddle their false narrative.
This whole fiasco raises serious questions about the competence and honesty of our highest-ranking military officials. If they can’t even get their facts straight or testify truthfully under oath, how can we possibly trust them to keep our nation safe? It’s clear that President Biden and his administration are desperately trying to cover up their colossal failures. But no matter how hard they try, the truth always has a way of surfacing.
It’s time for accountability. It’s time for transparency. And most importantly, it’s time for the American people to demand better from their leaders. We deserve the truth. We deserve leaders who are competent, honest, and willing to put our nation’s safety above their own political interests. The Afghanistan debacle should serve as a wake-up call for all Americans who value truth, integrity, and the well-being of our great nation.
