Pelosi on ‘Billions of Dollars’ of U.S. Military Weaponry Left for Taliban: That’s ‘What Happens When You Withdraw’

Twenty-five U.S. senators have sent a letter to the Secretary of Defense expressing grave concerns about the threat posed by the U.S. military leaving behind in Afghanistan weaponry, such as UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, which have now fallen into the hands of Taliban forces and their terrorist allies. But, that’s just “what happens when you withdraw,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says.

The senators, led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), want a full accounting of the military equipment left behind, the equipment that is now in the Taliban’s hands and the Taliban’s ability to use, or learn to use with the help of America’s adversaries, the seized equipment.

“We were horrified to see U.S. equipment – including UH-60 Black Hawks – in the hands of the Taliban,” the senators tell the Defense Secretary.
