Afghanistan

A Taliban soldier stands guard at the gate of Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday, Sept. 5, 2021. Some domestic flights have resumed at Kabul’s airport, with the state-run Ariana Afghan Airlines operating flights to three provinces.

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban said Monday they seized the last province not in their control after their blitz through Afghanistan last month, overrunning forces who had opposed their takeover.

Thousands of Taliban fighters charged into eight districts of Panjshir province overnight, according to witnesses from the area who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared for their safety. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid confirmed that the province, which is north of the capital, was now held by their fighters.

The military didn’t destroy all equipment. Taliban has in their hands over 90 billion because Biden failed planning Joe said the Taliban couldn’t take over Afghanistan. There are still Americans left over there. British shamed joe for his failed decision making. Boy the AP sure reports differently for a dem president than they do a repub. Not one negative towards joe in this article and why it’s the way it is. Poor planning by joe
