Not only Biden, but Britain hands over names of their Afghan partners to Taliban

When the US armed forces left the Taliban with US military goods worth almost 85 billion dollars, pundits blamed President Joe Biden's ineptitude. Great Britain curiously now also falls into this category.

    Either the West is governed by idiots or things are going according to a pre-arranged plan. As reported by the British newspaper The Times, employees of the British Foreign Office in the embassy in Kabul left documents behind with the contact details of their Afghan employees, including the name and address of a senior embassy staff member.

    Their papers were allegedly found “lying on the floor” by Times reporter on Tuesday as Taliban fighters patrolled the embassy. The documents listed phone numbers, addresses and personal details. Calls made to these numbers revealed that the Afghans concerned remained stranded at the airport.

    This news comes in the wake of the US handing over their HIIDE system to the new rulers. “The withdrawal of our embassy was done in a great hurry because the situation in Kabul was deteriorating. Every effort has been made to destroy sensitive material,” a State Department spokesman told Reuters, but according to The Intercept, the Taliban has acquired the US biometric identification system, HIIDE (Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment).

    The biometric system which has captured virtually the entire Afghan population, thanks to iris scans and full digital fingerprints, tracks everyone entering or leaving Afghanistan, anyone who has ever been arrested or who worked for the United States.

    In a Capitol Hill Press Conference on Tuesday, Indiana Representative Jim Banks noted that the Taliban now has more Blackhawk helicopters than 85 percent of countries globally. Biden left 300 times more guns than those passed to the Mexican cartels in Obama’s Fast and Furious program and the Taliban have been posting videos of pallets of $100 bills they have seized.

    The Taliban have also obtained the complete lists of those tortured or murdered on behalf of the US counterinsurgency (Khost Protection Force and National Directorate of Security). Republican senators have demanded that the Pentagon compile a list of materials left for the Taliban.

    Similarly, in Iraq in 2014, jihadists were given thousands of vehicles, straight out of the Toyota factory in Jordan. When joined by Iraqi officers, they proceeded to seize stockpiles of US weapons that had just been delivered to the Iraqi military, most of which were still unpacked. They were thus able to move against Syria.

    In 2021, Biden handed over other sophisticated weapons, missiles, planes, uniforms and cash to the Taliban army. Thanks to him, the Taliban now have over 200 military aircraft – putting them in 26th place on the list of nations with the most combat aircraft, reported thegatewaypundit.com.

    Flush with US armaments worth billions of dollars, the gifts were listed by using public information and the help of other intelligence sources, but it does not even include all of the additional types of non-lethal equipment, from MREs to medical equipment to energy drinks.

    Republicans linked CIA Director William Burns’ recent secret meeting with the Taliban’s top figure in Kabul with the hand-over of sensitive names. The CIA declined to comment on Burns’s meeting with Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar, which was earlier reported by the Washington Post.
