Washington Post: The Taliban Offered to Let the US Secure Kabul, But Biden Told the Taliban To Do It For Us

Our new Partners In Peace (TM).

talibanofferedkabultous.jfif

A Daily Caller write-up of the story is here.

The head of the Taliban's political wing presented the U.S. with an option to secure Kabul in the aftermath of President Ashraf Ghani’s hasty departure, but President Joe Biden’s administration declined the offer, a Saturday report said.

As Ghani fled the capital city of Kabul Aug. 15, leaving Afghanistan in limbo, senior U.S. military officials met with the Taliban's Abdul Ghani Baradar in Doha, Qatar, to discuss the fate of the country, according to The Washington Post (WaPo).

"We have a problem," Baradar said, according to a U.S. official that spoke to the WaPo on the condition of anonymity. "We have two options to deal with it: You [the U.S. military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it."

It would have taken an additional surge of troops to secure the city. But so what? We wound up sending in an additional 5000 troops to secure the city after the situation started falling apart. Sending the additional troops earlier would have helped secure and calm the situation.

Commander of the U.S. Central Command (USCC) Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr., however, reportedly communicated to Baradar that the U.S. military's only objective was to evacuate American citizens and Afghan allies out of Kabul, for which the airport was needed.

The "optics" wouldn't have been good, I imagine.

So instead, we got dead bodies.

Penny wise, pound foolish.

In addition, Biden and all of his handlers claim they always knew it would get "messy" (their preferred euphemism for "bloody") as evacuation day approached.

Well -- if you knew that, why did you have only a skeletal force to protect the planes as they attempted to leave?


Over the weekend, Biden launched "retaliatory strikes," supposedly at ISIS-K, but one gets the sense their primary purpose was PR for the American public.

One strike supposedly killed six children.

I don't know if this is true. These claims are made after every US strike.

Also, if you believe Biden's politically-compromised brass, the munition used should not have produced such a large explosion. The large explosion is claimed to have been a secondary explosion, caused by the ignition of explosives in a car that was being prepped for use as a vehicle-borne IED.

If that's the case, then it was a good strike. As for the civilian casualties: Well, it's the same dilemma we always face. Terrorists deliberately place their bomb labs in civilian areas to dissuade us from hitting them.

But we have to hit them.

So, if everyone's telling the truth, then this was a good striek.

If everyone's telling the truth.

How much confidence should we have in that?

And I do wonder what kind of "intelligence" the government can currently have about Afghanistan in its current chaotic state, as we're bugging out.

Deb Heine at American Greatness:

Nine members of a family of Afghan allies, including six children, were killed in a US drone strike targeting ISIS terrorists in a residential neighborhood of Kabul, Sunday, according to multiple reports.

The drone strike was reportedly targeting suicide bombers who were planning an attack on Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA).

A local journalist told CNN that the people killed were his brother Zamaray (40 years old), Naseer (30), Zameer (20), Faisal (10), Farzad (9), Armin (4), Benyamin (3), Ayat (2) and Sumaya (2).

Weeping, the brother told the journalist that they were "an ordinary family."

"We are not ISIS or Daesh and this was a family home -- where my brothers lived with their families," he cried.

Afghan journalist Muslim Shirzad was the first to report the news about the U.S. drone attack on the innocent family on Twitter.

46 For 50 years nothing that Biden ever did in politics had any repercussions to him personally. He was a non-entity protected by the press, never having any real authority and always just being one of the Dem Senate herd.

As long as the optics were right and the press covered for him, and he told the rights lies and made the right promises he'd be okay, no matter what stupid thing he said or did.

He's still in that mindset. Completely political. Entirely detached from any real-world consequences of his actions.

I think that Biden really had it in his head that getting out of Afghanistan by 11 Sep 21 would have earned him a place in the history books. He was able to do what four presidents couldn't. Any evidence that the results would be even worse than he imagined was simply ignored or suppressed, because nobody wanted to get Cranky Joe bothered by reality.

By the time the deal was offered, it was obvious the Afghan government was lost. The vaunted ANA simply left all of their equipment, and fled or surrendered.

Military is too busy trying to destroy tradition, military culture, and patriotism to concern its self with this stuff. Besides, they probably didn't want to leave, so the worse this looks the happier it makes them.

The White House is made up of a batch of infighting cliques each with their own agenda and struggling for power. None of them have any shred of experience, understanding, or wisdom, so this probably seemed like an ideal situation: get the military out fast, rely on the press to smooth it over, and Biden gets ticker tape parades for ending the war!

*We* were doing daylight strategic bombing (which no doubt hit civilians) but it was the Brits who were flattening German cities by night. Of course, it was one guy, in particular, who engendered that response. (I'm not referring to Bomber Harris, but that Austrian guy, the Big Corporal.) Given the situation at the time, not getting any sympathy from me, especially since while some members of my extended family survived the camps, others didn't.

Mixed feelings here. While I am saddened by the death of children, any children, I'm also at the point where I don't give a shit about dead Afghans. Dead Americans are worthy of my emotions.

I'm more concerned about the likelihood that Bai-Den's commie cocksucker military officers just picked out a random Land Rover and blasted it to scrap and hamburger, just to give Bai-Den a talking point for a single press conference.

Not to mention that I fully expect the drones to be deployed domestically against those terrorist unpeople from Jesusland before long.

104 Far too few details to even speculate seriously, but the "offer" on Kabul seems like not the big story most think it is, partly for the reasons ace himself raised. "Controlling" Kabul - what does that mean? ISKP was present and able to mount attacks for a long time prior to this final chapter. Not only would taking the "offer" require a substantial deployment, but the odds of casualties exceeding what we have now would be very high.

Real story remains not keeping Bagram, and not having (apparently) a serious plan for a non-permissive evacuation - basically, securing (temporarily) the mission and a few other locations downtown, and possibly a corridor out to Bagram/airlift to Bagram. And having a larger active rescue capability (we have some, and have used it) to collect evacuees from secured concentrations.

When the troop #s issue ended up being no Bagram/or adjust drawdown schedule, uniforms should have taken a stand and made trouble. Based on what we know now. That was the key (late stage) failure.

It has been reported that the aides were "afraid" to challenge Biden.

Biden has always been a very stupid and arrogant man. He is also known to have a temper. Like many arrogant and stupid people, he does not like to be challenged, because he believes he is always right. His senility has probably not improved this aspect of his character.

And apparently the weak-kneed quislings he hired in his administration are too timid to risk being yelled at by Grandpa Biden.

Yet somehow oversaw a massive increase in our footprint and expansion of our mission.

Not questioning the overall/underlying analysis there, CO Alex, it's correct. I interpreted Obama's bizarre expansion of the A'stan effort as the last echo of the long-standing Dem felt requirement to do things that belied their pathetic, clueless, weak foreign policy reputation (it used to manifest itself in things like appointing "GOP" SecDefs like Cohen or Hagel, things like that).

196 And the bit about relying on the Taliban for this or that, the snark, is about as flat and lame as it gets. Yes, when your adversary has essentially taken over, you have 2 choices. Rely on him for certain things, or do it all yourself.

The strike was probably a "good" one (= real target, taken out) - obviously with a horrendous result in terms of innocents killed. That is, a fairly typical outcome in this long struggle against animals who use innocent humans as shields as the absolute central tactic of their operations.

So as usual one can drop the high falutin' moral anguish and address the question: you want to take out this team with high risk of unintended victims, or take your chances stopping them before they get to our personnel at some perimeter? Not saying the answer is clear, but that's the question.

The surge in Afghanistan was explicitly limited to one year, which was proof from the beginning that it wasn't serious. Obama had run on fixing Afghanistan and needed to balance between showing his "commitment" to that fight and the pressure from the left to leave. So he gave Gates et. al. what they wanted, but half-assed.

It could be worse. They could be natural talons. Natural fingernails that long get thick and curved. I once had to give my an ID to a woman with fingernails several inches long like that and she had to Xerox it to release the appliance I was picking up.

This smacks of something State would have advised to extend an olive branch to the Taliban, and the sterling recent record of the military and IC makes it very plausible they agreed with it. "Biden" is a vegetable who would sign off on anything placed in front of him.

______________

We can't really know what's going on behind the scenes, and the leakers all have their own agendas (most of them are trying to cover their own asses), but we do know Biden's personality type. No doubt there are aides telling Biden he needs to do X, Y, and Z. But Biden gets presented with a variety of options about how X can be accomplished, and he picks and chooses what he wants. It has been leaked that Biden was the one who insisted that all but 2,500 U.S. troops be withdrawn, which sounds like it was probably true, if only because it was so obviously stupid.

Why give them the time-of-day. There are two sexes: male and female and three pronouns: he she, and it. You can use the third pronoun for anyone who declines to use one of the sexes.
Posted by: You Really Don't Want to Know at August 30, 2021 12:49 PM (nLrWw)

so there's either:
binary = people who believe they are either man or woman;
and there's non-binary = people who don't believe they're either man or woman.

so, it's back to binary then...

Well that was admirable spin on the US Government agreeing to let brutal, sadistic, and hateful Muslim savages control the area we needed to get people to safety. Bonus points for trying to make it seem like we're actually trying to control the airport when it has been made totally clear that the soldiers are being ordered to stand down and not guard or control anything.

Its not often when you get the left to argue on the side of homosexual-murdering mass rapists and torturers, but I guess when it comes down to principle, logic, and sanity, whatever it takes to defend a Democrat puts all that out the window.

I don't believe defense contractors would be getting more money to replace the equipment that we left behind. With America in decline after this incident, I'm not sure who would get paid going forward anyway. At least many of the people who sold out to the Soviets were true believers of some sort.

323 @rhomboid, no doubt securing Kabul would have been beyond our capabilities. Kabul is basically Albuquerque -- city of 4 million in a mile-high valley surrounded by mountains. As anyone who watches Breaking Bad knows, the State of New Mexico, the DEA, the Bernalillo County sheriffs, and the ABQ PD can't secure Albuquerque. And that's not halfway around the world.

The destruction of Western Civilization is the point. They don't care about the end result, just the death and destruction. Some of them might be able to suck up some power and money, but that's just side benefits.

356 Mixed feelings here. While I am saddened by the death of children, any children, I'm also at the point where I don't give a shit about dead Afghans.

I agree; unlike Leftists, I'm against killing children. But I can't *care* about the deaths of people I don't know, and who wouldn't care about the deaths of my children. What I DO care about is what this says about US. Namely, that waging war and killing enemies used to be a thing we were good at, and we can't manage to do it anymore.

It's the same way I *care* about the disintegration of Detroit every time I see pictures of those magnificent buildings returning to nature. I'm not thinking, 'Oh, those poor Detroiters, living in such awful conditions!' I'm thinking, 'Damn, those buildings were once testimonials of our advanced civilization, and now we're losing ground on that front every day.'

My wife does this too. She's not a woketard, it's just something she does. I don't think it's even a conscious decision.

Some time after the baby becomes mobile, my wife starts calling babies she or he. I think it's when they have more obvious personalities, but I haven't paid attention enough to notice exactly what cues my wife takes that causes the switch to flip from calling a baby it to calling it he or she.
