What could be worse than leaving BILLIONS in U.S. military equipment to our enemies in Afghanistan?
Pretty much nothing.
That’s probably why Joe Biden’s friends in the administration attempted to delete all evidence that they did that. Which – as you might remember from Hillary’s whole email scandal – it is a crime to delete public records. (Though, not usually a crime well-connected elites ever pay for.)
According to Forbes, “Biden officials recently directed federal agencies to scrub their websites of official reports detailing the $82.9 billion in military equipment and training provided to the Afghan security forces since 2001.”
SCRUB IT? Like what, with a cloth?
The source claims that “the scrubbed audits and reports included detailed accounting of what the U.S. had provided to Afghan forces, down to the number of night vision devices, hand grenades, Black Hawk helicopters, and armored vehicles.”
Of course, this attempt to scrub the record was a failure. The public was ultimately made aware of the $83 billion in weapons we left for terrorists.
Earlier this week, we reported exactly what was handed over to the Taliban.
Hint: IT WAS A LOT.
- 70,000+ vehicles
- 200+ planes and helicopters
- 350,000+ rifles
- 25,000 grenade launchers

It’s clearly a damning offense, but everyone knows it now. Why would the Biden administration cover it up?
Maybe there’s even MORE we don’t know about.
But when asked to excuse their attempt to erase public information, we didn’t get any hints. An official said it was done to protect “the safety of our Afghan contacts.”
Which we know isn’t true, since they left most of those contacts in Afghanistan to be brutally murdered by the Taliban anyway. No concern for their protecting them then!
The Biden blunders continue in Afghanistan and who knows how much worse it will get. The lack of accountability from this administration all but ensures we can’t hope for better in the future.
