Adding to the mountains of failures the Biden administration has already accumulated in only 11 months, the ending of the war in Afghanistan was also placed in the hands of Joe Biden.
\Following his announcement to end the war, the weeks that followed were nothing short of a disaster as not only were billions of dollars worth of equipment left behind but there are currently still over 100 Americans stranded. But according to the Biden administration, this is all normal.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even praised Biden for his leadership through the period that left 13 U.S. service members dead. As for the Taliban, they appear to be in high spirits as they recently held a parade with all the equipment left behind by President Biden.
According to Breitbart, “The Taliban held a military parade for its ‘Islamic Emirate Army’ in the city of Kandahar on Monday, featuring U.S.-made weapons, armored fighting vehicles, and helicopters seized after President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.”

Objective reporting for the educated American.
The outlet added, “The Kandahar parade was the public debut of the rebranded Taliban military. All eight of Afghanistan’s military corps were renamed by the decree of Taliban Defense Minister Yaqoob Mujahid on Sunday, giving them names more agreeable to the extremist group’s history and ideology.”

With the videos already circulating online, many Americans are shocked and confused as to why the Biden administration would leave weapons, ammunition, and vehicles for a terrorist organization the U.S. fought for over two decades.
It should be noted that the list of equipment left behind included 110 helicopters, 20 light attack airplanes, 42,000 light attack vehicles, and 25,000 grenade launchers. With that in mind, the videos above are just a small portion of what the Taliban is now in control of.
