LEAKED FOOTAGE Shows All The American Weapons That The Taliban Has!

The leaked footage from the Taliban is going to show something that will prove to be a serious headache for the Biden Administration. Jake Sullivan, the National Security Adviser for President Joe Biden, noted today that there is “a fair amount” of U.S.-made military weapons that have fallen into the hands of Taliban terrorists after they took control of Afghanistan, making it look easy, no less.

.However, from a quantitative standpoint, just what is a “fair amount”? That’s a good question, but there are plenty of new videos that suggest that Sullivan might even just be understating just how many American arms that the Taliban had managed to seize.

What are the videos showing?

Sadly, the American military presence in Afghanistan is now limited to the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, and that means that American military arms have been left behind as the U.S. forces were ordered to leave their installations and thus the Afghan security forces were in total ruin.

Videos are now circulating on social media that show the Taliban forces seizing thousands of not only firearms but ammunition as well.

One video, in particular, showed thousands of various rifles along with an arsenal of seemingly endless body armor and other types of military equipment. To make matters worse, all of this is now in the hands of Taliban radicals.

“In an unknown location in Afghanistan, the Taliban seized a large cache of M4 carbines, PVS-7D, night vision, and LMGs…” Ian Miles Cheong tweeted. To make matters worse, there was another video that showed the Taliban terrorists raiding a weapons depot and placing hundreds of the pilfered weapons in the back of their truck.

Here are some more tweets about the new-found power of the Taliban:

As it has already been reported, Taliban terrorists have also seized U.S. drones and military vehicles.

How did this happen?

One word, folks: corruption. That is how this happened.

The Washington Post detailed how the Afghanistan government was a paragon of corruption and they had a hand in facilitating the swift victory of the Taliban. That explained how the American arms had fallen into the hands of the terrorists.

The Post reported the following:

“The spectacular collapse of Afghanistan’s military that allowed Taliban fighters to walk into the Afghan capital Sunday despite 20 years of training and billions of dollars in American aid began with a series of deals brokered in rural villages between the militant group and some of the Afghan government’s lowest-ranking officials.”

The Post continued to report on these underhanded deals:

“The deals, initially offered early last year, were often described by Afghan officials as cease-fires, but Taliban leaders were in fact offering money in exchange for government forces to hand over their weapons, according to an Afghan officer and a U.S. official.”

The Post concluded:

Over the next year and a half, the meetings advanced to the district level and then rapidly on to provincial capitals, culminating in a breathtaking series of negotiated surrenders by government forces, according to interviews with more than a dozen Afghan officers, police, special operations troops and other soldiers.”

Every account regarding the amount of American military equipment that had been seized by the Taliban had cost American taxpayers literally billions. Still, neither the Biden Administration or the military have given any indication that this U.S. weapons cache is going to be reimbursed.

American Major General Hank Taylor was asked by a reporter just what steps the U.S. military had been taking to recover these and other U.S. military assets and the best the man could reply with was, “I don’t know the answer to that question.” Sad.
