As Twitchy reported, the U.S. military left behind a whole lot of hardware for the Taliban to pick up and enjoy, including Humvees, Blackhawk helicopters, guns, and drones.
The #Taliban not only seized appr. a hundred US humvees and (MaxxPro) MRAPs at Kunduz airport, but also several US ScanEagle drones.

The Pentagon held a press conference today and, unlike President Biden, took questions. One of those questions was about the United States’ plan to prevent military equipment from falling into the hands of the Taliban.
Q: "Is the U.S. taking any other sort of steps to prevent aircraft of other military equipment from falling into the hands of the Taliban?"
Major General Hank Taylor: "I don't have the answer to that question."

How could this have not been worked out ahead of time? Mind boggling.

Good grief, does anyone in the Biden Administration know what responsibility is? Guess it's ok that we hooked the Taliban up with some awesome military goodies…

Either the answer is “no” or there are classified things in play. Considering how many military vehicles alone were just left there, I’m guessing the answer is no.

That’s not very reassuring. We need to go blow up all the equipment we left behind.

This didn't happen all of a sudden, you all knew this was coming. How are there no answers? Was there literally no plan?

Biden explained how incredibly well-equipped the Afghan army was. His exit strategy was to flee and leave it all behind for the Taliban.

Is this a joke?
The Military is incompetent and needs new leadership.
CRT and Wokeness has ruined it.
