White House: Taliban gained ‘fair amount’ of US defense equipment
US national security adviser says seizure of weapons during Afghanistan takeover underlines ‘the difficult choices a president faces… in the context of the end of a 20-year war’
By AFP

WASHINGTON — The White House acknowledged Tuesday that the Taliban had amassed a significant amount of US military equipment after seizing control of Afghanistan following two decades of war with American forces. Pictures and videos have shown the Taliban with firearms and vehicles that Pentagon troops used or provided to the Afghan national security forces, as well as advanced UH-60 Black Hawk attack helicopters and other equipment at the Kandahar airport. “We don’t have a complete picture, obviously, of where every article of defense materials has gone. But certainly, a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the Taliban,” said White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

They didn't think of anything. This is without a doubt the biggest foreign policy screw-up I have ever seen, and Biden is doubling down on it. It's hard to imagine how he could have botched this thing any worse.
