If you are wondering how the Taliban made such huge tactical advances over the past few days, it seems that there is only one answer. Corruption.
“The level of corruption within the Afghanistan military and the government, that’s how the Taliban won a lot of this, is they would pay the commanders off to surrender a city before,” she explained. “So those who genuinely do want to fight—and there are a lot of men that wanted to genuinely fight—were kept in the dark and ANA [Afghan National Army] commanders were basically paid off in advance to surrender the city and they were left with no choice but ‘you have no choice but to basically run.'”
And, everyone is asking, Where is Joe Biden?
Maybe the Taliban paid him off too. This is an unmitigated foreign-policy disaster the likes of when we haven't seen since the downfall of Saigon, or maybe the Iran hostage crisis. And this is Joe Biden's. It's all his.
