Pakistan got what it wished for—but will come to regret it. A Taliban takeover will leave Pakistan more vulnerable to extremism at home and potentially more isolated on the world stage.”

“Recent reports of violence and atrocities against interpreters and other Afghans indicate local Taliban forces are showing little regard for human life and human rights on the ground,” US State Department’s deputy spokesperson Jalina Porter said.

“The Taliban must go beyond issuing statements denying territorial offenses and targeted attacks. If this is truly not Taliban policy, their leadership should condemn these atrocities and violations of basic rights," Porter said.

US President Joe Biden has reassured Afghan President Ashraf Ghani of his support, but the fundamentalist Taliban say the current Afghan leader needs to leave to achieve lasting peace.

The Taliban on Trump: "We hope he will win the election" and withdraw U.S. troops

The White House was aware in early 2019 of intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans. That’s a full year earlier than has been previously reported.

This is deeply disturbing. Beyond admitting he never raised Russian bounties intel to Putin in at least 8 conversations, asked about Russia arming the Taliban, Trump says “Well, we supplied weapons when they were fighting Russia, too”. A Russian talking pt

Here’s what Trump said 2 months after finding out Russia was paying bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops: “We have this great friendship. And, by the way, getting along with Russia is a great thing." Basically a green light for Putin to keep executing our soldiers.

Trump still hasn't done anything to punish Putin for paying Taliban to kill US troops.

Here’s what we learned today: Trump found out Russia paid bounties to Taliban fighters to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan. He seriously considered asking them to stop. He decided to not ask them to stop. Chew on that for a sec.

The Wall Street Journal Editorial states that it doesn’t want me to act in an “impulsive” manner in Afghanistan. Could somebody please explain to them that we have been there for 19 years, and while soldier counts are way down now, hardly impulsive. Besides, the Taliban is.....
