As Taliban Seek International Acceptance, Countries Seek to Engage—but Stop Short of Recognition

With a new government in place and uncontested control over the country, Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers are clamoring for international recognition of their reinstated Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

Nearly a month after the fall of the Afghan republic, no nation has granted such recognition so far. Yet, governments world-wide, as well as the United Nations, are eager to open high-level contacts with the Taliban, especially as the country faces a humanitarian crisis.

Afghan Dogs Found at Kabul Airport amid Evacuation Train with New Handlers: Report

More than two dozen Afghan dogs stranded amid last month's evacuations reportedly have a new home, new handlers and are being given new responsibilities.

Hewad Azizi, who works for a security company at the Kabul International Airport, told the AFP that he and his colleagues are now feeding, housing and working with 30 dogs at a training facility on the airport grounds.

"When I saw [the soldiers leaving] I went to save the dogs," Azizi said, adding that about half of the dogs were found in portions of the airport that were controlled by the U.S. military during the chaotic evacuation of troops and civilians in Afghanistan in August. The other dogs were found in portions of the airport controlled by Afghan police.

Images of dogs allegedly left behind in and around the Kabul airport prompted accusations of abandonment — but the Department of Defense said any reports about the U.S. forces leaving military animals behind were "erroneous."

"Like It's Loose Change": Taliban Says Former Afghan VP Left Behind $6 Million Cash & Gold Bars At Residence

The Taliban says it found over $6 million in cash and at least 15 gold bars after it raided the home of a longtime Afghan national politician, Amrullah Saleh.

Saleh had been vice president since February 2020 until the collapse of the Afghan government when the Taliban overran Kabul in August. As soon as President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, reportedly with millions in cash, VP Saleh declared himself acting president of the country, which happened on Aug.17. The home where the cash was reportedly found was in the Panjshir Valley - recently taken by the Taliban. The Taliban released video of militants rummaging through the treasure that had been left behind...

Saigon 1975, Kabul 2021, Baghdad 2024?

Washington’s reputation as an effective imperial power experienced another humiliating setback in August with the implosion of the U.S.-backed government in Kabul. The sight of helicopters urgently ferrying American diplomats from the embassy to the Hamid Karzai International Airport (named after an earlier U.S. Afghan puppet) was all too reminiscent of the chaos in Saigon when Washington’s client regime collapsed in April 1975. So, too, was the emotionally wrenching scene at that airport when desperate Afghans clung to the fuselage of a departing evacuation aircraft.

The war in Afghanistan is over but military leaders are still trying to hide their failures

With the Taliban in total control of Afghanistan, Americans deserve to know how the Afghan security forces collapsed in little more than a week despite a nearly 20-year and $88 billion effort by the U.S. military to train, equip, and mentor Afghan troops and police.

Army Gen. Austin “Scott” Miller, the last commander of all U.S. and allied troops in Afghanistan, could provide lawmakers with some of the answers when he testifies next week before Congress – but the broader American public won’t hear any of that. The hearing will be behind closed doors.

This enforced secrecy has become the norm for Miller and other military leaders, who made it nearly impossible to get basic information about the state of the war in Afghanistan for at least the past three presidential administrations.

Pentagon: No plans to send investigators to Afghanistan to scrutinize US drone strike

The Pentagon does not plan to put investigators on the ground to assess whether “an imminent ISIS-K threat” targeted during a U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan actually had ties to the terrorist organization, the Defense Department’s top spokesman said Monday.

“I don’t foresee an option at this point ... that would put investigators on the ground in Kabul to complete their assessment,” press secretary John Kirby told reporters at the Pentagon.

U.S. Central Command “is still assessing the results of that strike, and they have a variety of means to do that, and I’m just not going to get ahead of where they are in terms of the process,” he added.

Family of U.S. Hostage Held by Taliban Calls for Envoy's Firing

The family of Mark Frerichs on Monday urged U.S. President Joe Biden to fire his chief Afghanistan peace negotiator, charging that the envoy has done little to win the release of the last American believed to be held hostage by the Taliban.

The call for U.S. Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad's dismissal comes amid questions over his negotiations with the Taliban that failed to advance the peace process outlined in the February 2020 U.S. troop pullout deal he signed with them.

"I have lost faith in Ambassador Khalilzad," Charlene Cakora, Frerichs' sister and the family spokesperson, said in a statement to Reuters, charging that he "appears to have ignored my brother's kidnapping."

"They need someone talking to the Taliban who will make Mark a priority," she continued. "Ambassador Khalilzad needs to be fired."

‘We Don’t Need to Hear Lies’: Blinken Excoriated By Lawmakers Over Biden’s Botched Afghan Withdrawal

Amid broad bipartisan criticism of the Joe Biden administration’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan lawmakers this week are holding their first public hearings into the haphazard pullout and evacuation missions since US military forces departed from the South Asian country late last month.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken was excoriated over the bungled US withdrawal from Afghanistan at Monday’s congressional hearing, with a Republican lawmaker erupting that Congress does not "need to hear lies".

Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., slammed the administration's botched handling of the pullout, heatedly saying he didn’t "believe a word" the secretary was saying.

Taliban Deny War Crime Allegations After Damning Watchdog Report

The Taliban* deny all accusations of war crimes and crimes against humanity, the Deputy Minister of Culture and Information of Afghanistan Zabiullah Mujahid said on Tuesday.

"We strongly deny the Human Rights Watch report, which says that the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate are committing war crimes. This organization should not be a victim of enemy disinformation and should not prepare such false reports based on it. They should carefully study everything on the ground and ascertain the facts independently," Mujahid stated on Twitter.

On Monday, Human Rights Watch sent a letter to the Indian Foreign Minister with an appeal to take urgent steps to address the humanitarian and human rights crisis in Afghanistan. The letter noted that the United Nations Mission in Afghanistan should share information with international bodies investigating war crimes in the country.

Pentagon insists Kabul drone strike that ‘killed children & aid worker’ was about preventing ‘imminent attack’

The Pentagon has refused to comment on the revelation that its Kabul drone strike killed not a terrorist but an innocent Afghan aid worker and children, insisting it was taken to prevent an “imminent” attack on the US airlift.

The US military claimed to have killed three suspected members of Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K) terrorist group in Nangarhar province on August 27 and an ISIS-K “facilitator” in Kabul on August 29. The first strike was in reprisal for the August 26 suicide bombing at the Kabul airport, for which ISIS-K claimed responsibility, and the second was said to have taken out a car bomb intended for the airport.

On Monday, however, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said he could not confirm the identities of anyone killed in the strikes – or explain how the military was investigating the second strike without any presence on the ground.

When We Were Nation-Building in Afghanistan, Did We Remember the Mandatory Pig Roasts?

For the record, I’ve not only opposed our Mideast military adventures but also, in 2007, wrote an article warning about the folly of “nation-building.”

Yet I also know that if you are going to overthrow a tyrannical regime and remake the government, a prerequisite is winning the hearts and minds of the people. You must also recognize that you “never change things by fighting the existing reality,” as famed architect Buckminster Fuller observed. “To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

Now, when the Nazis invaded the USSR during World War II, they initially encountered some people who hoped they’d free them from Stalin’s brutal rule. Adolf Hitler was very blunt about his absence of interest in winning hearts and minds, however, reportedly saying that he came not as a liberator, but a conqueror.

‘Bungled’ Kabul Drone Strike: US Has a Long Record of Killing 'Wrong' Afghans, Observers Say

The US drone strike authorised by Joe Biden in the aftermath of the deadly Daesh-K* suicide bombing attack in Kabul, killed an innocent man and his family, according to the New York Times. CIA veteran Philip Giraldi and former Reagan administration official Dr. Paul Craig Roberts have discussed the NYT investigation.

The Pentagon drone operators struck a vehicle on 29 August, believing that it carried a Daesh-K* bomb and posed an imminent threat to troops at Kabul’s airport. Following the attack, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley told reporters that secondary explosions which followed the strike backed the military’s conclusion that the car contained either suicide vests or a large bomb. The general asserted to the press that the attack was based on good intelligence and that all precautionary measures had been taken to reduce risks to civilians nearby.

Taliban Reportedly Finds $6Mln, Gold Bars in Home of Self-Declared Afghan President Saleh

The Taliban (terrorist organisation, banned in Russia) found about $6 million in cash and at least 15 gold bars in the house belonging to former Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh, who had declared himself president of Afghanistan, Khaama Press reported on Monday.

The Afghan news agency shared a video circulated earlier on social media, saying it showed Taliban militants demonstrating the assets found in Saleh's residence.
A source in the movement confirmed to Sputnik that "huge sums of money" had been found in the house of the vice-president in the failed government of Ashraf Ghani.
Neither Saleh nor the members of the anti-Taliban resistance have yet commented on the claims.

Bombshell Investigation Reveals Joe Biden Could Face WAR CRIMES Charges After Killing Innocent Children in Kabul Drone Strike

After his administration killed numerous children in Kabul during a likely illegal drone strike, Joe Biden could potentially face war crimes charges.

Biden also targeted an innocent individual who worked for a US group, according to a shocking New York Times investigation. If the allegations are true, the airstrike would be a violation of international law governing targeted murders in times of war – in other words, a war crime.

NATO head says alliance signed off on US withdrawal from Afghanistan

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed that the military alliance gave approval for the Biden administration’s complete withdrawal from Afghanistan, pushing back on speculation that leaders voiced objections to the decision.

In an interview with The New York Times published Friday, the NATO chief said that none of the alliance’s members voiced objections to President Biden’s plan to leave Afghanistan before his announcement in April.

At the time, he aimed for a complete withdrawal by Sept. 11, the 20 anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

9/11’s Positive Impact on Afghanistan
Today Marks the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks
????? ?????????
The 9/11 attacks that triggered the war on terror brought US and NATO soldiers to Afghanistan and started the 20-year war in Afghanistan, which took thousands of lives of foreign soldiers, Afghan forces, Taliban forces and civilians.

According to a report by the AP, over 150,000 lives, including foreign troops, the Afghan security forces, Taliban forces and civilians have been lost.

The report highlights that 3,592 foreign soldiers, including 2,448 US and 1,144 NATO soldiers, were killed in the last 20 years. Also, 3,846 US contractors were killed.

The report also says that 66,000 Afghan soldiers, 51,191 Taliban fighters and 47,245 civilians were killed during the war in the country.

NYT Confirms Biden Murdered Innocent Family In Kabul Drone Strike

President Joe Biden murdered an innocent family when the US military conducted a "righteous strike" on Aug. 29 against a vehicle that American officials thought was an ISIS bomb that posed an imminent threat to thousands of people at the Kabul airport.

In a late Friday afternoon report, the New York Times reveals that "Military officials said they did not know the identity of the car’s driver when the drone fired, but deemed him suspicious because of how they interpreted his activities that day, saying that he possibly visited an ISIS safe house and, at one point, loaded what they thought could be explosives into the car."

In reality, they were filling water bottles.

Joe Biden Committed a War Crime by Drone Striking Civilian Aid Worker, Not ISIS, Evidence Reveals.

Analysis has revealed that Joe Biden’s last minute effort to salvage credibility during the Afghanistan withdrawal included a heinous war crime which murdered aid worker civilians, not the ISIS-K terrorists the Biden regime claimed.

On August 28th, Major General Hank Taylor told reporters during a press briefing that an “over-the-horizon” counterterrorism operation killed “two high profile” ISIS-K targets.

The move was lauded by America’s corporate news media, even as doubts as to the veracity of the claims were raised in the immediate aftermath.

Now, analysis from the New York Times reveals the driver of the vehicle targeted, Zemari Ahmadi, was in fact a long-time worker for a U.S. aid group. He appeared to be carrying water, not explosives.

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger about the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban. He calls the US military a killing machine and discusses why the Afghanistan war must be viewed through the lens of Western imperialism, the scale of civilian casualties and destruction of Afghanistan by NATO countries, how the US created today’s situation by supporting Afghan jihadist forces against the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, the social progress and progressive reform lost to history with the fall of the Soviet-backed PDPA government in Afghanistan, and much more! Pilger also discusses the anniversary of the Pinochet coup in Chile and the trial of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

The Truth About Biden’s ‘ISIS-K’ Drone Strike Has Been Revealed And It’s Worse Than We Thought

Remember how the administration and friends in the media, particularly CNN, boasted for weeks about Biden killing an alleged ISIS-K terrorist who was plotting another suicide bombing shortly after the bombing at the Kabul airport killed 13 American servicemembers whose flag-draped coffins were interfering with Biden’s busy schedule of talking about his own son so much that he had to keep checking his watch?

You know, the one that Woke Gen. Mark Milley, who was apparently too busy studying “white rage” to find the real organizers of the attack, said last week that it was a “righteous strike.”

Well it didn’t happen. They didn’t take out an ISIS-K bomber at all; in fact, it’s much worse than we thought.

‘Trauma on top of trauma’: UK veteran says war in Afghanistan was ‘pointless exercise’ that brought him nothing but fear (VIDEO)

As part of RT’s special project Unheard Voices, a decorated UK war hero tells how a close friend’s death and other harrowing scenes of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq have left a mental scar on him and many other veterans.

Former colour sergeant Trevor Coult was awarded the Military Cross, the British Army’s third-highest honour, for his bravery in Iraq and served several tours in Afghanistan. He wrote a book about his experiences during operations in Sangin, which were among the bloodiest battles for both UK and US forces in Afghanistan.

Coult has since been open about his struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and even said in 2016 that he was selling his medals because they brought back painful memories.

Escobar: What To Expect From Taliban 2.0

The announcement by Taliban spokesman Zahibullah Mujahid in Kabul of the acting cabinet ministers in the new caretaker government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan already produced a big bang: it managed to enrage both woke NATOstan and the US Deep State.

This is an all-male, overwhelmingly Pashtun (there’s one Uzbek and one Tajik) cabinet essentially rewarding the Taliban old guard. All 33 appointees are Taliban members.

Mohammad Hasan Akhund – the head of the Taliban Rehbari Shura, or leadership council, for 20 years – will be the Acting Prime Minister. For all practical purposes, Akhund is branded a terrorist by the UN and the EU, and under sanctions by the UN Security Council. It’s no secret Washington brands some Taliban factions as Foreign Terrorist Organizations, and sanctions the whole of the Taliban as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” organization.

Australia’s SBS TV has quoted a Taliban spokesperson as saying that women’s sports — and women’s cricket specifically — will be banned by his group in Afghanistan.

“It is the media era, and there will be photos and videos, and then people watch it. Islam and the Islamic Emirate do not allow women to play cricket or play the kind of sports where they get exposed.”

As a former intelligence officer, I find it amusing to read articles in the mainstream media that blithely report how the latest international outrages are undoubtedly the work of CIA and the rest of the U.S. government’s national security alphabet soup. The recurring claim that the CIA is somehow running the world by virtue of a vast conspiracy that includes the secret intelligence agencies of a number of countries, while using blackmail and other inducements to corrupt vulnerable politicians and opinion makers, has entered into the DNA of journalists worldwide, frequently without any evidence that the current crop of spies which includes an increasing number of not-trained-as-spies paramilitary officers is capable or even interested in doing anything that complicated.

Videos from central Kabul showed dozens of men and women marching through the streets shouting "Death to Pakistan" as the demonstrators made their way towards the presidential palace.

Looking at 2019 CDC guidance, one has to wonder if one of the reasons why there is such a run on ivermectin is because our own government is using it. And no, not for horses, but for refugees. Yet these same government agencies are running a blood libel-style smear campaign against the drug and its users by misleading people into conflating it with a veterinarian version of the drug, leading many people to think it's some sort of poison for humans.

The ‘Great Reset’ in Microcosm: ‘Data Driven Defeat’ in Afghanistan

Nation-building in Afghanistan arrived in 2001. Western interventions into the old Eastern bloc in the 1980s and early 1990s had been spectacularly effective in destroying the old social and institutional order; but equally spectacular in failing to replace imploded societies with fresh institutions. The threat from ‘failed states’ became the new mantra, and Afghanistan – in the wake of the destruction wrought post-9/11 – therefore necessitated external intervention. Weak and failed states were the spawning ground for terrorism and its threat to the ‘global order’, it was said. It was in Afghanistan that a new liberal world vision was to be stood-up.

The Chinese military is currently conducting a feasibility study for a potential takeover of the major airfield, according to a source briefed on the plans by Chinese military officials who then spoke to U.S. News & World Report on condition of anonymity.

A New Storm Is Brewing in the Balkans

Well, what else is new? Afghanistan is said to be the graveyard of empires, but turbulence in the Balkans often is also the precursor to an empire or two being buried in its wake. Not for nothing, in the fall of 1918, as the Salonica front was crumbling, Kaiser Wilhelm complained to his General Staff what a shame it was for the outcome of the Great War to be decided by 70,000 Serbs. Some decades previously, his chancellor Bismarck (who himself had more than a few drops of Serbian blood on his grandmother’s side) averred dismissively that the Balkan riff-raff was not worth the bones of a single one of his Pomeranian Grenadiers. By 1918 Wilhelm had learned better.

The CDC Wants Refugees Arriving to America to Eat a Bunch of Ivermectin

“I have long been convinced that Nature has all the solutions we need to solve our past … that will be the primary source of the treasures and solutions that we seek.” ~Professor Satashi Omura, Nobel co-laureate for the discovery of ivermectin

Looking at 2019 CDC guidance, one has to wonder if one of the reasons why there is such a run on ivermectin is because our own government is using it. And no, not for horses, but for refugees. Yet these same government agencies are running a blood libel-style smear campaign against the drug and its users by misleading people into conflating it with a veterinarian version of the drug, leading many people to think it’s some sort of poison for humans. In the process, they are leaving thousands of COVID patients without any other options for treatment.

The Worst Day in Afghanistan

We miss the point again. Why have we not assigned blame and demanded punishment for the leaders who put those 20-year-old soldiers into the impossible situations they faced? Before we throw away the life of another kid or another dozen Afghans, why don’t we demand justice for those in the highest seats of power for creating such fertile ground for atrocity?

World reacts as Taliban announces new Afghan government

The Taliban has announced an all-male caretaker government drawn exclusively from its inner echelons, including a man under United Nations sanctions as prime minister and another on a United States “terrorism” list as interior minister.

The names announced for the new government on Tuesday, three weeks after the Taliban swept to military victory as US-led foreign forces withdrew, gave no sign of an olive branch to its opponents.

State Dept To Blame For HOSTAGE Situation According To This

Americans engaged in the rescue of U.S. citizens, SIVs and green card holders neglected by President Biden in Afghanistan are horrified by what they term as inexplicable delays from the State Department that are preventing evacuation flights from leaving the nation.

The State Department's delays are dangerously endangering American lives, three different individuals involved in the private evacuation effort told Fox News.

Rick Clay, who runs the private rescue group PlanB, told Fox News that the State Department is the only thing stopping the flights he's organizing from fleeing Afghanistan.

Two other American individuals separately involved in evacuation efforts, whom Fox News is not naming to avoid risking ongoing rescue forces, similarly stated that the State Department is the single entity preventing their charter flights from leaving Afghanistan.

The Taliban are showing us the dangers of personal data falling into the wrong hands

The Taliban have openly talked about using US-made digital identity technology to hunt down Afghans who have worked with the international coalition – posing a huge threat to everyone recorded in the system. In addition, the extremists now also have access to – and control over – the digital identification systems and technologies built through international aid support.

These include the e-Tazkira, a biometric identity card used by Afghanistan’s National Statistics and Information Authority, which includes fingerprints, iris scans and a photograph, as well as voter registration databases. It also includes the Afghan personnel and pay system, used by the interior and defence ministries to pay the army and police.

Biden Seeks to Shift Focus to Domestic Issues After Afghanistan Exit

President Biden is seeking to press his legislative agenda and redouble efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic after Labor Day but the tumultuous withdrawal from Afghanistan may cast a long shadow over the fall.

Mr. Biden has sought to place the spotlight on domestic issues, including Friday’s underwhelming jobs report and recovery from Hurricane Ida, visiting New Orleans Friday and making plans to travel to the New York metropolitan area on Tuesday to assess storm damage. He is expected to focus heavily on his infrastructure and antipoverty legislation in the coming weeks, as Congress returns to Washington, as well as travel to California to campaign for Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat facing a recall election.

The Worst Day In Afghanistan

he Kabul airport suicide bombing was the largest single-day loss of life for Americans in the Afghan War since 2011. It was a terrible day, but raises the question: What was the worst day of the Afghan war?

At first, it is hard not to consider the August 26 attack the worst day, with 13 Americans and at least 169 Afghans dead. How old were the Americans? How many hadn’t even gotten out of diapers when the war started 20 years ago? Did any have parents who also served in Afghanistan? Who were the Afghans? All the dead were so close to safety, after who knows what journey to that moment together—a hundred yards across the tarmac and into an airplane out. Good people only die at the last minute in bad movies, and sometimes real life.

But was it the worst day? Shall we count the dead? The worst day for American casualties was August 6, 2011, when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down over eastern Afghanistan. Thirty Americans, including 22 SEALs, died that day.

Unreal: Secretary of State Blinken Says Taliban Won’t Allow Stranded Americans at Mazar-i-Sharif Airport to Leave Because They Lack Valid Travel Documents

Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday denied reports that the Taliban was preventing Americans from flying out of Afghanistan from the Mazar-e-Sharif airport. Blinken said the Americans and SIV migrants were not allowed to leave because they lacked valid travel documents.

The civilians at the Mazar-i-Sharif Airport are fleeing the country and fear for their lives.

State Department accused of trying to take credit for rescue of 4 Americans from Afghanistan

State Department trying to steal credit for rescue of 4 Americans from Afghanistan, organizer says: 'Total lie'

The organizer of a private mission to rescue an American mom, Mariam, and her three children from Afghanistan says the U.S. State Department is now trying to insert itself into the story of her evacuation, despite playing little to no role for much of the rescue effort.

Senior State Department officials on Monday announced that the "U.S. has facilitated the safe departure of four US citizens by overland route from Afghanistan. Embassy staff was present upon their arrival."

But those actually involved in the dangerous rescue operation say the State Department deserves little to no credit for Mariam's escape from Afghanistan.

Liz Peek: Gloomy Americans give Biden low marks on Afghanistan, COVID and economy

The mood of the nation is dark.

You can see it in the University of Michigan consumer confidence index, which plunged to 70.3 in August, down 11.0 points from July. That’s down to levels not seen since the Great Recession.

The gloom is apparent in retail sales, which slid more than 1% in July from the prior month, the second drop in the past three months.

It’s also showing up in President Joe Biden’s collapsing approval ratings, which have turned negative; that’s not shocking given that 61% of the nation thinks we are on the wrong track, according to Real Clear Politics.

Imagine – the country is profoundly discouraged even as the stock market hits new highs, jobs are plentiful and consumers are wealthier than ever before.

Blinken: US identified 'relatively' small number of Americans seeking to depart Mazar-i-Sharif

U.S. officials in Washington have identified a "relatively" small number of Americans seeking to depart Mazar-i-Sharif International Airport, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday while in Qatar.

Blinken says the State Department is working with the Taliban to facilitate additional charter flights from Kabul for people seeking to leave Afghanistan after the American military and diplomatic departure.

It appeared to be the first time that the Biden administration confirmed that there were Americans at the airport after several reports that Taliban fighters had blocked Americans aboard six planes at the airport. Three Americans involved in the private evacuations blasted the State Department over the weekend for preventing the evacuation flights from leaving the country.

Republican Afghanistan Veteran: Biden’s Actions Meet ‘Constitutional Definition Of Treason’

On Sunday, Republican Congressman Brian Mast, who fought in Afghanistan and now serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said that President Joe Biden’s actions involving that country amount to “treason” and he should be removed from office.

Mast made his comments during an interview on Fox News.

Mast’s reasoning includes how quickly the Taliban retook Afghanistan, Biden being more worried about optics than national security, and also the controversial July phone call in which Biden reportedly encouraged Afghanistan’s president to change the perception of what was happening.

The president reportedly told the Afghan leader he didn’t care if the narrative he came up with was true or not.

America's 20-year war on terror has killed up to 929,000 people and cost over $8 trillion: report

The pricetag of America's global war on terror is estimated to stand at roughly $8 trillion, according to a new report from Brown University's Costs of War project.

The estimate factors in "future costs for veteran's care, the total budgetary costs and future obligations of the post-9/11 wars."

The report attributes $2.3 trillion to the Afghanistan and Pakistan war zone, $2.1 trillion to the Iraq and Syria war zone, and $355 billion to other war zones.

Dr. Neta C. Crawford, co-director of the Costs of War Project, in a statement said the project's accounting "goes beyond the Pentagon's numbers because the costs of the reaction to 9/11 have rippled through the entire budget."

Taliban announces formation of new government, including some ministers WANTED by US

The Taliban has begun to fill government positions following its successful conquest of Afghanistan. Some of the names however, are wanted by US authorities, with multi-million dollar bounties on their heads.

Mullah Muhammad Hassan Akhund, a co-founder and head of the Taliban’s leadership council, was named acting Prime Minister of Afghanistan on Tuesday, with other senior Taliban leaders approving his nomination. Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, considered the militant group’s de-facto leader, was named Deputy Prime Minister, according to a Taliban spokesman.

Sirajuddin Haqqani was named Acting Interior Minister, with his appointment standing out for one reason: Haqqani is considered an international terrorist by US authorities, with the FBI offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest.

US military knew dozens of Americans were AT THE GATES of Kabul airport but refused entry during evacuation — journalist to RT

The US commanders in charge of evacuation abandoned dozens of American citizens at the gates of Kabul airport amid a chaotic rush to leave Afghanistan, US war correspondent and former special forces soldier Michael Yon told RT.

On Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain was forced to acknowledge that around 100 Americans still remained in the turbulent country a week after the Biden administration’s August 31 deadline to get everybody out expired.

Former special forces soldier-turned-journalist Michael Yon, who was among the volunteers helping to airlift Americans out of Afghanistan, has shared with RT some disturbing details of how holders of US passports were left behind by their own military.

On August 30, Taliban members delivered a mother with three children as well as 45 other American citizens to the gates of Kabul airport. Three civilian jets, which had been paid for by volunteers, were waiting for them at the airfield.

Erdogan's Plans For The Future Of Afghanistan: China, Russia, & Terrorists

The US and the EU should not buy Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's fake pro-Western posture (such as when he offered to run the Kabul airport, then fled) or his fake anti-radicalism (such as when he is courting the Afghan terrorists). Erdogan's strategy, as a member of NATO, is clearly to bolster Russia's and China's plans for the future of Afghanistan.

When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in December 1979 in support of the communist Afghan government, then in conflict with radical Muslim fighters, Turkey was having its own civil war between ultra-left and ultra-right factions. In September 1980, the Turkish military staged a coup d'état and banned all political parties, including Islamist ones.

Astonishing photos show how US military has turned a two-mile RUNWAY at Ramstein Air Base in Germany into tent city to house thousands of Afghan evacuees before flying them to their new homes in America

Remarkable new photos show the scale of the U.S. operations at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, as thousands of Afghans evacuated from Kabul are processed for their journey on to the United States.

The base, in south west Germany, has turned one of its two runways - which are both around two miles long - into an enormous tent city to provide living quarters for the tens of thousands of Afghans who have been evacuated there.

Those tents - which have been photographed from the air to show the sheer scale of the evacuation operation, are split into pods to give their occupants' privacy, with hundreds of porta potties also visible along the edges of the air strip.

Only men sleep in the tents, with women and children housed separately in hangars normally used to store military aircraft at the base, which is run jointly by the US Air Force and Army.

Antony Blinken Accepts Taliban Promise of Safety for Afghanistan Escapees

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday he accepted the Taliban’s repeated promises of safe passage for anyone seeking to flee the country.

He spoke after his meeting with Qatari officials on accelerating evacuations in his first trip since the establishment of the self-proclaimed Islamic Caliphate in Afghanistan.

Representatives of the terrorist organization told the United States “they will let people with travel documents freely depart,” Blinken informed a news conference in Doha where he and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met their Qatari opposite numbers.

“We will hold them to that,” he added, AFP reports.

Hostage Situation Starts To Unravel

Congressman Michael McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, insisted that the Taliban are not permitting planes taking Americans to depart from Afghanistan.

The congressman said “zero” Americans have been able to leave the country since the U.S. military withdrew from Afghanistan less than a week ago because the Taliban are holding them "hostage."

“We have six airplanes at Mazar-i-Sharif airport, six airplanes, with American citizens on them as I speak, also with these interpreters, and the Taliban is holding them hostage for demands right now,” he said on Fox News Sunday morning. “State has cleared these flights, and the Taliban will not let them leave the airport.”

Gold Star Father: Biden ‘Talked More About His Son Than My Son’

After meeting with President Joe Biden, two Gold Star fathers of U.S. Marines killed during the terrorist bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan, spoke out about their experiences.

Mark Schmitz, the father of Marine Jared Schmitz, and Darin Hoover, the father of Marine Darin Taylor Hoover Jr. recently appeared on Sean Hannity’s program on Fox News.

Schmitz met with Biden. Hoover had a different attitude, telling Hannity, “we didn’t want [Biden] anywhere near us,” Fox News reported.

Schmitz appeared to take offense that the president talked more about his late son, Beau Biden, than he did Jared Schmitz.

“Initially, I wasn’t going to meet with him,” Schmitz said. “But then I felt I owed it to my son to at least have some words with him about how I felt – and it didn’t go well.”

ROB FINNERTY: Your father and your sister chose not to meet President Biden at the dignified transfer, but you did alongside Rylee’s widow, who is pregnant. Tell us about that.

CHEYENNE MCCOLLUM: I wouldn’t say I necessarily stayed to meet him. I stayed to support Rylee’s wife because I didn’t want her to sit alone and she wanted the chance to look him in the eye, so I sat beside her to do that as well. I stayed and when he came up to us, about 15 seconds in I had to walk away. It was so insincere. He didn’t look us in the eye, he gave her a pat on the knee and said, “I know what you’re going through, I lost my son.” He didn’t lose his son serving.

Taliban Say They Took Panjshir, Last Holdout Afghan Province

The Taliban said on Monday they have taken control of Panjshir province north of Kabul, the last holdout of anti-Taliban forces in the country and the only province the Taliban had not seized during their blitz across Afghanistan last month.

Thousands of Taliban fighters overran eight districts of Panjshir overnight, according to witnesses from the area who spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing for their safety. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid issued a statement, saying Panjshir was now under control of Taliban fighters.

“We tried our best to solve the problem through negotiations, and they rejected talks and then we had to send our forces to fight,” Mujahid told a press conference in Kabul later Monday.

The anti-Taliban forces had been led by the former vice president, Amrullah Saleh, and also the son of the iconic anti-Taliban fighter Ahmad Shah Massoud who was killed just days before the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States.

Taliban Claim Total Control Over Afghanistan

The Taliban on Monday claimed total control over Afghanistan, saying they had won the key battle for the Panjshir Valley, the last remaining holdout of resistance against their rule.

Following their lightning-fast victory in mid-August over the former Afghan government's security forces and the withdrawal of US troops after 20 years of war, the Taliban turned to fighting the forces defending the mountainous Panjshir Valley.

As the Islamist hardliners claimed victory, their chief spokesman warned against any further attempts to rise up against their rule while urging former members of the security forces to join their regime's ranks.

Nikki Haley warns CHINA could take over Bagram air base as Taliban look to Beijing for help

The U.S. must rebuild fragile alliances with partner nations or risk rivals such as China moving into Afghanistan to collect strategic assets including Bagram Air Base, according to Nikki Haley, the former ambassador to the United Nations.

The fate of the base, abandoned by U.S. troops in the middle of the night at the start of July, has been seized on by President Biden's critics to symbolize what they say was an ill-thought out withdrawal.

And now the base, which was once the hub of America's war in Afghanistan, could be a prize for rivals seeking to extend their reach.

US Troops 'Will Be Going Back Into Afghanistan': Lindsey Graham

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has been ramping up calls to impeach US President Joe Biden over the hectic troop pullout from Afghanistan, insisting that the “derelict” commander-in-chief had “ignored sound advice” in relation to the withdrawal operation.

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) believes that American troops will return to Afghanistan despite the chaotic military withdrawal from the country that was completed on 30 August.

“We will be going back to Afghanistan as we went back into Iraq and Syria,” Graham said in an interview with BBC.

Hundreds Of Afghani Refugees Have Been Flagged For Terrorism

Roughly 100 Afghan escapees from Afghanistan to the United States have been tagged for potential links to terrorist organizations, including the Taliban, a new report reveals.

"Of more than 30,000 evacuees from Afghanistan to the U.S., about 10,000 needed additional screening as of Friday," NBC News reported, citing two sources familiar with evacuation efforts. "And of those about 100 were flagged for possible ties to the Taliban or terror groups."

The report stated that two of the flagged Afghans "raised enough concern for additional review" and are being sent to Kosovo for further review amid security concerns.

"A lot of people were moved very quickly and the intelligence community has been working hard to evaluate whether any of them pose a threat," said a senior federal law enforcement official, according to the report.

Taliban STOP six planes carrying American citizens and allies from leaving Afghanistan airport: Top Republican says passengers are being 'held hostage for demands'

Video footage from a Coastal Carolina Chanticleers football game over the weekend show fans at the Brooks Stadium, which seats some 21,000 people, break into a spirited chant of “F**k Joe Biden.” Another video captured the same chant at the even larger Lane Stadium in Virginia Tech, where players and fans enraged liberals on social media by celebrating the start of football season with Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”

At the Coastal Carolina game, fans could be seen clapping and chanting in unison to the chant of “F**k Joe Biden!” Biden’s mismanagement of messaging on COVID and his general lack of support among large swaths of the American public have led to increasingly vocal public dissent from the Biden regime in recent weeks.

'If one life is lost, the blood is on White House hands': Fury at State Department for 'delaying six flights out of Afghanistan carrying more than 100 US citizens'

The US State Department has been accused of blocking dozens of Americans from fleeing Afghanistan after failing to tell the Taliban it had green-lighted charter flights.

On Sunday, Reuters reported that the delay had been caused by Biden administration officials not telling Taliban leaders it had approved the departures of the chartered flights from an airport in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, 260 miles north of Afghan capital Kabul.

An exasperated flight organizer hit out at the State Department over the fiasco, saying: 'They need to be held accountable for putting these people's lives in danger.'

Escobar: Why The Taliban Still Can't Form A Government

nternal Taliban divisions come to the fore as squabbling hinders the formation of Afghanistan’s new Islamic Emirate...

It looked like everything was set for the Taliban to announce the new government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan after this Friday’s afternoon prayers. But then internal dissent prevailed.

That was compounded by the adverse optics of a ragtag “resistance” in the Panjshir Valley that is still not subdued. The “resistance” is de facto led by a CIA asset, former vice president Amrullah Saleh.

The Taliban maintain they have captured several districts and at least four checkpoints at the Panjshir, controlling 20% of its territory. Still, there’s no endgame in sight.

Supreme Leader Haibatullah Akhundzada, a Kandahar religious scholar, is expected to be the new power of the Islamic Emirate when it’s finally formed.

Mullah Baradar will likely preside just below him as a presidential figure along with a 12-member governing council known as a “shura.”

Taliban Tells British Press: ‘We Want Islamic Law, and Not Just in Afghanistan’

The Taliban said they want Islamic law both at home and abroad and warned Western forces they will face another 20-year quagmire if they return in an impromptu meeting with The Telegraph.

The right-leaning British newspaper, which is close to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government, took “tea with the Taliban” after turning up a captured government building in Kabul, where an Islamist official told them they were “very happy that we are now the leaders of the government” and “want to have good relations with all the rest of the world. We want to work with foreigners and have good relations.”

A Taliban commander from Kandahar province who the newspaper spoke to outside another seized government building indicated that such foreign engagement would be very much on the Islamists’ terms, however.

“We are happy that we are victorious. We fought for 20 years. We want Islamic law, and not just in Afghanistan,” said the commander, whose name was given only as Nisar.

Biden LIED About The Taliban And This Man Can Prove It

A U.S. Representative from Oklahoma, who made two unauthorized trips in efforts to enter Afghanistan and help with the evacuation effort, reveals he has proof that President Joe Biden lied about Americans and visa holder's access to Kabul Airport.

U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin, 44, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, appeared on Fox's Special Report with Bret Baier and claimed he has accessed secret recordings of Americans failing to get to the airport in time for the final evacuation. He signaled that he has recordings of one woman and her four kids who were denied access to the airport after trying to get in for 12 hours.

'Five times she approached this guard with the Taliban, the last time they stuck a pistol to her head with her kids there,' he stated, adding the woman went back home the final time and became physically ill, never trying again to reach the airport.

Various outlets reported on the challenges facing would-be evacuees who tried to get to Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport through a gauntlet of Taliban checkpoints.

Now, the messages acquired by the Washington Examiner show how fraught the situation became in the last days before the last flight left on Aug. 30.

One Afghan-American who worked with the office of Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) announced that the Islamic fundamentalist organization's fighters “were creating as much problem as they could.”

Top US General Says 'Likely' Civil War in Afghanistan Could Prompt 'Reconstitution of Al-Qaeda'

The US completed its troop withdrawal from Afghanistan on August 30, just a day before the official deadline. While the closure marked the end of the US' near 20-year mission in the Afghanistan, it has also raised concerns about the future of the Central Asian nation.

A top US military general admitted on Saturday that Afghanistan could soon see a civil war break out with warring factions in the nation, warning that such a development could pave the way for the resurgence of al-Qaeda.

The prediction was voiced by top US Gen. Mark Milley, who serves as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during an interview in Ramstein, Germany, with Fox News' Jennifer Griffin. At the time, Milley had been at the American base to offer his well wishes to troops involved in the process of evacuating Afghans.

Male Afghan evacuees trafficking their child brides into the US: State Department seeks 'urgent guidance' on older men presenting underage girls as their 'wives' at intake centers

U.S. officials are looking into reports that in the frantic evacuation of desperate Afghans from Kabul, older men were admitted together with young girls they claimed as 'brides' or otherwise sexually abused.

U.S. officials at intake centers in the United Arab Emirates and in Wisconsin have identified numerous incidents in which Afghan girls have been presented to authorities as the 'wives' of much older men.

While child marriage is not uncommon in Afghanistan, the U.S. has strict policies against human trafficking that include prosecutions for offenders and sanctions for countries that don't crack down on it.

Sweden Allegedly Sought to Bomb Afghanistan as Advertisement for Its Fighter Jets, WikiLeaks Reveals

A sensational WikiLeaks disclosure has revealed that Sweden's Armed Forces wanted to use the Afghanistan war to advertise its Saab Gripen fighter jets across the world thanks to combat experience.

In 2008, the Swedish Armed Forces wanted Sweden to send Jas Gripen aircraft to Afghanistan, as part of a marketing stint for its fighter aircraft, WikiLeaks has reported citing a leaked cable.

In the secret telegram, then-US Chargé d'Affaires in Sweden Robert Silverman wrote to the NATO forces in Afghanistan asking them to put pressure on Sweden, which he called a "leading NATO partner", to contribute more to the US-led effort with additional manpower and resources.
