Trump Nat’l Security Expert: Al-Qaeda return in Afghanistan, abandoned U.S. weaponry makes Taliban ‘arm dealers’

Taliban

Fred Fleitz, former Chief of Staff to Trump’s National Security Council, says the reports of the resurgence of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan was “predictable” after Biden’s botched Afghanistan exit in 2021. Fleitz comments, “there's a close relationship between Al-Qaeda and the Taliban. But let's review what happened in 2021, [the U.S.] left behind 358,000 assault rifles, 126,000 pistols, 64,000 machine guns, 16,000 night vision goggles, and thousands of trucks, Humvees and aircrafts.” “The Taliban, first of all, they’ve become arms dealers, and we have to assume a lot of these weapons are probably showing up in Ukraine and being used by the Russians, and who knows what else. But this really are weapons that could be arming several large, aggressive terrorist groups. And I think that's what's going on now. I believe that the Taliban is probably selling larger equipment that it can easily use, and weapons like machine guns and assault rifles, they are all being used in these Taliban training camps,” said Fleitz. Additional interviews with Robert Greenway, Director of the Center for National Defense at The Heritage Foundation, on  Southern border crisis has opened Americans’ eyes to Biden’s poor foreign policy, and AMAC Spokesman Bobby Charles.
