Yeah, and I put zero stock in that whatsoever. Unless the contractor has access to military flight (not bloody likely), it’s done. That information would have been prior to the closure of the airport to all non-military flights.Further on her tweet she did mention that the govt was working with the contractor to get them out but that it wouldn’t be on any of the refugee flights
Well, to feed that just a bit, past management WAS willing to host Taliban on U.S. soil before ... things happened ...... I maintain that the US Administration has known for awhile the Taliban were going to be back in power and none of this is a surprise. There hasn't been an American soldier killed in Afghanistan in almost a year and a half and that's no coincidence. They made a deal with them, they just will never admit it publicly.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiight ....... The Mujahideen should pay utmost attention to the treasury, public facilities, government offices, equipment related to government offices, parks, roads, bridges. Al these are the trust and property of the nation; no personal tampering and negligence should be done with them, rather it should be strictly guarded.
All those who have previously worked and helped the invaders, or are now standing in the ranks of the corrupt Administration of Kabul, the Islamic Emirate has opened its door for them and have announced for them amnesty. We once again invite them all to come and to serve the nation and the country.
The military and civilian personnel who join the ranks of the Islamic Emirate should not be worried because the Islamic Emirate is determined to appoint them in a proper manner as per their abilities and talents to serve their country and nation in the future.
In areas which are under the control of the Islamic Emirate, people should lead a normal life, especially in the official arena, whether it is educational, healthy, social or cultural. No one should leave their area and country. They shall live a normal life; our nation and country need services, and Afghanistan is our joint home that we will build and serve together ...
Yup. It isn’t a coincidence. That said, the original 2001 premise no longer exists, so from their POV, one could easily consider that collateral value to Afghans in the interceding period was a bonus, but not critical to American Interests.I maintain that the US Administration has known for awhile the Taliban were going to be back in power and none of this is a surprise.

Its almost like pulling out this quickly was a bad idea. Who wants to bet US troop levels will be back very shortly to the level they were before the withdrawal was announced?Meanwhile the US as approved an increase to 6k troops to move into Afghanistan but its probably to late.
It will be, until everyone they care to get out is out, then it will quickly be zero*.Its almost like pulling out this quickly was a bad idea. Who wants to bet US troop levels will be back very shortly to the level they were before the withdrawal was announced?
RCAF Loadmasters everywhere would have a stroke if they read that statement.RCH871, a USAF C17, got out of Kabul a couple hours ago and tanked from a KC135 over Kandahar or thereabouts. It went feet wet over the Gulf of Oman a little while ago, transponder went back on. There’s an audio capture of ATC querying the plane... 800 souls on board. Not comfortable, but nuts to butts it’s possible.
