BIDEN’S GIFT TO THE TALIBAN
At least 24 California students and 16 parents are stranded in Afghanistan after taking a summer trip abroad. They are among thousands of individuals stranded behind enemy lines, at the mercy of the Taliban.
It’s absolutely tragic. But I have to ask… Why would anyone in their right mind take a summer trip abroad to Afghanistan?
Thanks to the Government Accountability Office, we now have a clear picture of just how much U.S. military equipment has fallen into the hands of the Taliban, thanks to Joe Biden’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan. Let’s have a look…
✈️ Aircraft: The Taliban now ranks #26 in the world in total military aircraft thanks to us leaving behind 208 planes and helicopters:
60 transport/cargo planes
20 light attack planes
18 intelligence/surveillance planes
🛻 Vehicles: You’ve probably seen the footage of the Taliban riding around in our humvees. We left a total of 75,898 vehicles:
42,604 tactical vehicles
8,998 medium tactical vehicles
1,005 recovery vehicles
928 mine-resistant vehicles
189 armored tanks
🔫 Weapons: Get ready for this… 599,690 weapons are now in the hands of the Taliban:
64,363 machine guns
25,327 grenade launchers
And you can throw a couple thousand night-vision goggles, surveillance drones, and communication devices on that list as well.
Price tag: In total, it adds up to nearly $84 billion dollars in tax-payer-funded U.S. military equipment.
Joe Biden just funded an army of terrorists in Afghanistan.
