CNN is reporting that U.S. President Joe Biden negotiated a secret deal with the Taliban in order to save face politically back at home after his hasty and botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“The U.S. military negotiated a secret arrangement with the Taliban that resulted in Taliban members escorting groups of Americans to the gates of the Kabul airport as they sought to escape Afghanistan,” CNN reported. “The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the arrangements, which have not been disclosed until now because the US was concerned about Taliban reaction to any publicity as well as the threat of attacks from ISIS-K if its operatives had realized Americans were being escorted in groups.”
That plan didn’t work any better than his failed withdrawal plan as last Thursday, 13 U.S. servicemen and women were killed in a terrorist bombing at the hands of ISIS-K
CNN also claims the Biden administration refused help from U.S. special operations forces to help Americans trapped behind Taliban lines safely flee the country.
“In another separate secret arrangement not disclosed until the operation was over, troops from the elite Joint Special Operations Command and other special operations units were also on the ground helping Americans escape by contacting them through ‘call centers,’ one of the officials said,” CNN also claims. “Special operations forces set up their own secret gate at the airport and were at times in direct communication with Americans telling them exactly where to walk to find the gate and be able to get inside the airport.”
