China Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin announced Wednesday that the country will recognize and communicate with Afghanistan’s new government. Several Taliban members were named heads at the government Tuesday. Wang verified that China’s recognition of the Taliban government in a press briefing.

Among the new leaders are four ex-Guatanamo Bay inmates. Obama freed them in 2014 in exchange for Army servicemember Bowe Bergdahl. Now, Noorullah Noori is the acting minister of borders and tribal affairs, Abdul Haq Wasiq is acting intelligence director, Khairullah Khair is acting minister of information and culture and Mohammad Fazil Mazloom is their deputy minister of defense.

First, Wang voiced China’s support for the new government heads, calling their nominations a “necessary step” in reconstruction. “This has ended more than 3 weeks of anarchy in Afghanistan,” Wang said. “China respects the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Afghanistan.”

After the U.S. military left and the Taliban took over, Wang called for an “open and inclusive” government. Now, they’ve given their approval to the Taliban.

“We hope the new Afghanistan authorities will listen broadly to people of all races and factions, so as to meet the aspirations of its own peoples and the expectations of the international community,” Wang said.

Meanwhile, the Taliban still struggles against resistance fighters in the Panjshir province.

Sam Brinton, the Biden administration’s deputy assistant for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy has been charged with a very bizarre crime.

Allegedly Brinton purposely stole a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport’s baggage claim.

Brinton is one of the federal government’s first gender non-binary officials who uses they/them pronouns. Court filings state that surveillance video showed Brinton grabbing the luggage and removing the owners ID tag.

Brinton then used the Vera Bradley suitcase on at least two occasions; one while traveling to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and the second on Oct. 9, investigators say.

Initially, Brinton denied stealing the suitcase to police officers. They later claimed it was taken by mistake, although it was still  in their possession.
