Former President Trump appeared on Fox News to blast President Biden for leaving military equipment to fall into the hands of the Taliban. Host Greg Gutfeld interviewed the former president on Wednesday.

“I mean, we did a great job. I rebuilt the military,” Trump told Gutfield. “All that beautiful stuff, that brand-new stuff, and you know who has it now? The Taliban. I built it for the Taliban.”

According to reports, the military left a number of machinery and weaponry. Over 64,000 machine guns, 350,000 assault rifles and 126,000 pistols fell to the hands of the Taliban. Not to mention the over 22,000 humvees, 50,000 trucks, 160 tanks and more.

“It wasn’t supposed to happen,” Trump said. “Now we see these beautiful, perfect, brand-new rifles, and these guys are carrying two and they’re wearing our uniforms and flying our helicopters. It’s a disgrace.”

Recently, a video of a man dangling from a Black Hawk in Afghanistan went viral. An Afghan journalist revealed it was a living Taliban fighter attempting to hoist the Taliban flag. In the end, he wasn’t successful.

Now, the Taliban isn’t the only group with access to this equipment. Former U.S. Army Green Beret and Central Intelligence Agency liaison officer Jerry Torres appeared on the Sara Carter Show Monday to warn that the cutting edge weapons left behind and Biden’s failed evacuation has emboldened America’s enemies.

“Here’s the thing about that equipment, you know, the equipment are going to Chinese,” Torres told Carter. “The equipment is one thing, but the code behind it, the computer programming code behind that stuff, is what the Chinese and the Russians need to catch up with us.”

Meanwhile, the Taliban also utilizes the rest of the weaponry left behind to fight the Panjshir province. The province is the last of the strongholds of the resistance effort.

Daily Wire investigation: Italian company may have illegally sold rights to the Vatican’s priceless art

The Daily Wire has been conducting a fascinating investigation into the Vatican Museum’s priceless artwork. “Rights to the Vatican Museums’ priceless trove of art treasures may have been illegally sold without the Holy See’s approval in what one attorney described as a “high-tech heist,” the investigation finds.

An Italian company is allegedly selling the rights to reproduce the Vatican artwork in six-figure deals, while claiming to be working in “collaboration with” the Vatican Museums.

“This scheme is nothing less than a pre-meditated, high-tech heist of world-class treasured art from the Vatican Museums under the disguise of bogus licenses, as if sanctioned by the Vatican,” Sarah Rose Speno, a New York attorney, told The Daily Wire.

The Daily Wire’s report notes that Speno said she stumbled upon the alleged scheme in March when she sought permission to use images of Vatican art for an exhibition by a client.

“We discovered that a large table book had been published with high-resolution images of the interiors of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel,” Speno said. “We very much wanted to pursue an opportunity to license these images, as soon as possible.”

Speno contacted Scripta Maneant — the Italian publisher that licensed the photos in the book. Scripta Maneant claimed authority to broker the publishing rights via its “collaboration” with Vatican Museums vice director, Monsignore Paolo Nicolini. Scripta Maneant wanted $550,000 for the rights — with a portion being paid to the Vatican through Nicolini, according to Speno. Although Scripta Maneant claimed the fee would be shared with the Vatican, Speno said she later became suspicious.

“The Scripta Maneant scheme became obvious when the Scripta principals demanded a cash wire in the amount of $82,500 no later than their return from summer holiday in late August,” Speno said. “They said that they would produce Vatican approval for our Italian Renaissance Immersive project ‘if and only if’ the fee were wired to the Scripta bank account they provided. It was at this point that grave suspicion entered my mind.”

Ultimately, Speno said, “we terminated the deal when Scripta could not provide us with documented consent by the Vatican.”
