The USA-Taliban Alliance

A few days ago, I made a wild-ass, fairy-tale guess about USA’s “failure” in Afghanistan actually being one domestic Deep State faction pushing a competing Deep State faction out of business. At the time, it was a guess because I only had cynicism and Cui Bono. But now… I gots da headlines. Hat tip to Peter Grant for several of these links.

Planes, guns, night-vision goggles: The Taliban’s new U.S.-made war chest

WASHINGTON, Aug 19 (Reuters) – About a month ago, Afghanistan’s ministry of defense posted on social media photographs of seven brand new helicopters arriving in Kabul delivered by the United States.

“They’ll continue to see a steady drumbeat of that kind of support, going forward,” U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters a few days later at the Pentagon.

That didn’t age well.

In a matter of weeks, however, the Taliban had seized most of the country, as well as any weapons and equipment left behind by fleeing Afghan forces. Video showed the advancing insurgents inspecting long lines of vehicles and opening crates of new firearms, communications gear and even military drones.

“Everything that hasn’t been destroyed is the Taliban’s now,” one U.S. official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told Reuters.

Current and former U.S. officials say there is concern those weapons could be used to kill civilians, be seized by other militant groups such as Islamic State to attack U.S.-interests in the region, or even potentially be handed over to adversaries including China and Russia.

A very credible threat. It’s time for some decisive Pentagon action!

President Joe Biden’s administration is so concerned about the weapons that it is considering a number of options to pursue.

Bomb it. We know where it is and it’s our stuff anyway. A couple drone strikes and some artillery practice and call it a day. I’m angry it got left behind but shit happens when shitheads run the shitshow.

The officials said launching airstrikes against the larger equipment, such as helicopters, has not been ruled out, but there is concern that would antagonize the Taliban at a time the United States’ main goal is evacuating people.

FUCK YOU, TEAM BIDEN!

It looks like weakness. It sounds like weakness. But it’s actually Brutus vaxxing Caesar. jab jab jab

U.S. officials provided Taliban with names of Americans, Afghan allies to evacuate

U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that’s prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.

The move, detailed to POLITICO by three U.S. and congressional officials, was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan as chaos erupted in Afghanistan’s capital city last week after the Taliban seized control of the country. It also came as the Biden administration has been relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport.

Nice partnership. But, uh, don’t we have troops sitting inside that very airport for that kind of job?

The list issue came up during a classified briefing on Capitol Hill this week, which turned contentious after top Biden administration officials defended their close coordination with the Taliban. Biden officials contended that it was the best way to keep Americans and Afghans safe and prevent a shooting war between Taliban fighters and the thousands of U.S. troops stationed at the airport.

Yeah, we wouldn’t want a shooting war between American soldiers and the hostile army murdering Americans. Not if we were secretly allies.

After the fall of Kabul, in the earliest days of the evacuation, the joint U.S. military and diplomatic coordination team at the airport provided the Taliban with a list of people the U.S. aimed to evacuate. Those names included Afghans who served alongside the U.S. during the 20-year war and sought special immigrant visas to America. U.S. citizens, dual nationals and lawful permanent residents were also listed.

This isn’t even the first time they’re giving actionable intel to the Taliban so it’s not a political derp. Team Biden is feeding intelligence to the Taliban in order to utterly ruin the operation of a different faction of the US gov’t. The one that’s been running not-Taliban-gistan for two decades, presumably.

Kabul: US Government is Stopping Civilian Op Dunkirk Attempts

The failing United States military and civilian government are not letting us land to rescue Americans. Many groups have aircraft waiting to fly. Serious people with serious means.

We can get people out but the United States government is so draconian that we are being held back NOT by the Taliban, but by the US Government who created the problem.

The US government has lost legitimacy. It’s getting in the way.

United States will be busy now arming Taliban with money, credibility, and at this moment is facilitating Taliban control.

Civilian-run evacuation efforts? In a FUBAR crisis under martial law on the planet’s backside? Uh-huh, sure. Let’s nail down this “Dunkirk” operation.

‘Digital Dunkirk’ needs more time to help get Americans and Afghan allies out

The Digital Dunkirk volunteer effort to get stranded American citizens and Afghan allies out of Afghanistan needs more time, as the collaborative effort by military veterans and others faces challenges posed by government bureaucracy, a Taliban takeover, and a Biden administration deadline.

The mammoth effort includes hundreds of military veterans working with the Pentagon, the State Department, and other officials in Washington, D.C., and Kabul. A host of military contractors, retired spies, Pentagon veterans, international aid workers, journalists, activists, and others have also joined in the disparate efforts.

Yeah, that a Deep State faction. The CIA community, for want of a better term.

Alex Plitsas, a U.S. Army veteran of the Iraq War who worked as a defense civilian intelligence officer in Afghanistan, told the Washington Examiner: “Digital Dunkirk is one of several groups that have popped up since Kabul fell. It is a confederation of former national security professionals from the Department of Defense, Department of State, and intelligence community.

That’s a straight-up confession that this is factional infighting! We even get a name!

FAIRFIELD, CT — A Fairfield resident and U.S. Army veteran has joined “digital Dunkirk,” an independent effort by national security experts to help American citizens and allies escape Afghanistan after it was recently taken by the Taliban, according to the Hartford Courant.

Alex Plitsas served in Iraq and Afghanistan [about 9 years ago] and is currently the chair of the Fairfield Republican Town Committee. He is working with fellow veterans to use their military knowledge and experience — as well as social media — to aid Americans, some of whom were stranded after traveling to Afghanistan to visit family, the Courant reported.

“Americans”. Yeah, sure. Were there mujahidin on the Mayflower?

They say when you get out of the military or the intelligence community that you never really get out,” Plitsas said Thursday on Twitter. “I never understood what that meant until this week. That network is still able to move heaven and earth when needed. I’m thankful beyond words.”

There was a time I would’ve seen a hero here. Now I see a swamp creature caught with his hand in the cookie jar. The more I learn about those “Americans left behind”, the more I want them to stay there.

For Mike Jason, it began as an effort to help a senior officer in the Afghan army flee the Taliban.

A retired U.S. Army colonel, Jason had attended the Institute for Higher Defense Studies in Rome with the Afghan officer years ago. This week, when the Taliban completed a dramatic takeover of the country, he received word that the officer had gone into hiding.

Jason quickly activated his network of former army pals over email and social media to make sure the officer would be allowed to get through the gates of Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA) in Kabul.

How could he possibly make contact with a foreign military officer he met years ago, briefly in neutral territory, after the guy went dark in a hostile country undergoing a purge following the collapse of his military chain of command? Why would he even care to? Unless he was still in contact with that officer and doing “stuff” in Afghanistan even in so-called retirement.

Since then, he and hundreds of other U.S. veterans, including West Point graduates, have been mobilizing on behalf of vulnerable Afghans in a kind of “digital Dunkirk,” as some are calling it, after the World War II effort by private vessels to evacuate British and other Allied forces from the embattled French port.

The network has quickly grown to include others who worked with Afghans over the years and now find themselves agonizing over the risk of retribution posed to their friends and former colleagues across Afghanistan.

“It spans everything from former policymakers to NGO workers to academics to personnel on the ground at HKIA,” said Nick Calbos, a West Point graduate who served in Afghanistan in 2012 and 2013. A network of West Point graduates has set up a website called Allied Airlift 21 with step-by-step guidance for Afghans looking to get out.

Eight years after he last saw them? Or did he remain in communication with them?

“We just built this network to figure out who’s going to get my buddy through the gate [at the Kabul airport],” Jason told Foreign Policy. “And we just realized, there are a ton of other people doing it too.”

That’s an interesting statement, that the Dunkirkers are trying to get their buddies though the gate into the airport. It strongly implies that they have in-service allies already downrange. Is Biden partnering with the Taliban for outside security because he cannot trust the military inside?

Specifically, the West Pointers inside?

Team Biden intentionally armed the Taliban, after the fact if not before, then put them in charge of airport security with lists of who to watch for so his domestic rivals can’t reach their allies on the inside. It’s not incompetence, it’s actually being rather well executed. Which means Biden’s just the fall guy… but we knew that already.

We are not participants in our government. They don’t even notice us except as livestock to be controlled and consumed… too preoccupied with their reindeer games of power, vying for the Throne of Satan.

In related news, my deadpool bet on Xiden comes due in five months. “Late January so Harris can have two and a half terms as Prez”. Feeling good about the timing if not the reason.

  1. This confirms my suspicions and also explains the “why” of the matter. Thank you, GunnerQ. This was extremely informative.

  2. “Late January so Harris can have two and a half terms as Prez”.

    That’s how they think all right. She is the capstone of quite a long contrivance of goddess-worship — not of Kammie personally, but of what she represents. It follows that they will want her considered ‘majority president’ of the term.

    Your theory about the chessmasters (NOT Biden or Harris lol) cutting off an unaligned intel-military-contractor crowd trapped in Afghanistan is provocative. Perhaps that particular sector of the Complex was not sufficiently on-board the agenda of the New Order? Outside the cucked top-brass, much of the military remains un-woke, although with each week they are eroded.

  3. They’re not even hiding the agenda anymore. They can clearly and reliably count on a majority of the American population being some combination f apathetic, ignorant, asleep, and cowardly.
