Zero Hedge: Update (1310ET): The situation is Kabul (well all of Afghanistan) has gone from bad to worst case scenario as a Taliban official says they will soon declare the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from the presidential palace in Kabul, the Associated Press reported, after reports of the insurgents entering the premises and taking control of it.
The level of mismanagement is astonishing. With no military background, I could have told you to 1) Ship all military equipment home, 2) Establish a plan to get US civilians & embassy members out in advance & 3) Offer asylum to all of the natives who assisted us during that time.
This is happening in Kabul right now.
Biden has allowed the Taliban to regain control.
Now civilians are fleeing the country.
Watch as they stampede onto an evacuation flight.
Biden did this. pic.twitter.com/GDdNDNjGPQ
