Sara Carter blasted President Biden for failing Afghanistan on the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show. According to her, the “administration just completely f***ed up” a safe withdrawal from the tumultuous country. Now, the Taliban is taking over instead.

“Afghanistan falls to the Taliban. You know they just walked in,” Carter said. Newly minted head of the Taliban Mullah Baradar even admitted it was easier to overtake the country than he thought. “[He] said in a video, basically ‘hey look, we just walked in. We didn’t even know it would be this easy,'” said Carter during her podcast.

“The Biden Administration just completely f***ed up,” Carter said.

However, there was a plan in place.

“It exists,” Carter said of the plan. “The Department of Defense has it. It’s all wrapped up in a nice bundle. We have these plans. They call them NEO‘s [noncombatant evacuation operations].” Instead of sticking to protocol, Carter claims Biden revealed the plan too far in advance.

“First, they advertised that we were going to pull out,” Carter said. “Why would you do that with an enemy?”

In the meantime, Carter is doing all she can to help her sources safely flee the country. She discouraged them from storming the Hamid Karzai International Airport like over 20,000 Afghans have done recently. It’s a risky move, with as many as seven people left dead for trying to fight crowds.

Taliban Holds Parade for 250 Newly Trained Soldiers with American-Made Weapons Left Behind

As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

On Sunday, Taliban forces held a very bone-chilling parade showing off their captured American-made armored military vehicles and Russian helicopters. The act was “a display that showed their ongoing transformation from an insurgent force to a regular standing army” writes CNN.

The Taliban are no longer terror insurgents fighting against American forces that had once freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

The parade was part of a graduation for 250 newly trained Taliban soldiers, said defense ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khwarazmi. CNN reports, “The exercise involved dozens of US-made M117 armored security vehicles driving slowly up and down a major Kabul road with MI-17 helicopters patrolling overhead. Many soldiers carried American-made M4 assault rifles.”

Tragically, much of the weaponry taunted in the parade by Taliban forces were supplied by the United States to the American-backed government in Kabul during the past two decades. The equipment was to aid an Afghan national force and make it capable of fighting the Taliban.

As forces fled Afghanistan, some of the military equipment provided by western forces was flown into Central Asian Countries in an attempt to avoid it landing in the hands of the Taliban. It remains unclear exactly how much of what did end up in Taliban control is still operational.

American troops destroyed over 70 aircraft and dozens of armored vehicles, as well as disabled air defenses before flying out of Kabul during the frenetic evacuation. CNN reports “Taliban officials have said that pilots, mechanics and other specialists from the former Afghan National Army would be integrated into a new force, which has also started wearing conventional military uniforms in place of the traditional Afghan clothing normally worn by their fighters.”
