WaPo: The Taliban Offered Control of Kabul to US Forces, but US Made Agreement to Only Control Airport

An extremely disturbing report has surfaced from the Washington Post revealing that the U.S. had an opportunity to hold the city of Kabul but willingly turned it over to the Taliban.

A U.S. official told the Post that our military leaders had a meeting and reached an agreement with the Taliban.

This meeting occurred after Afghanistan’s president Ashraf Ghani fled the country and the city began to collapse as gangs were reported to be taking over.

With the decision of whether to accept control over Kabul or allow the Taliban to do so, the U.S. opted for the latter, Fox News reports.

Taliban political leader Abdul Ghani Baradar reportedly said, “We have two options to deal with it. You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.”

This decision by the Biden administration led to the deaths of 13 U.S. troops at the airport in Kabul.

The airport in Kabul has remained under fire earlier today as five rockets were intercepted by U.S. forces prior to evacuating.

20-year old Marine Rylee McCollum was among the 13 U.S. troops who died at the Kabul airport by a suicide bomber.

His mother, Kathy McCollum, is speaking out against Joe Biden and the disastrous decisions that led to his death in Afghanistan.

The attack killed one Navy corpsman, ten Marines, and two Army soldiers.

Most of them were either 20 years old or in their early twenties. One of them was female.

Active duty and retired naval intelligence members were told they cannot “disrespect” Biden over the disaster in Afghanistan.

However, this certainly doesn’t apply to grief-stricken Gold Star mothers.

“My son was one of the Marines that died yesterday,” Kathy McCollum said. “I had to listen to that [expletive]… sorry, I’m on the radio.”

“My son was one of the Marines that died yesterday,” she said, restarting her comments. “Twenty years and six months old. Getting ready to come home from freaking Jordan to be with his wife. To watch the birth of his son.”

“And that feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die,” she said.

“I woke up at 4 o’clock this morning to Marines at my door telling me my son was dead,” she continued.

“So, my son is gone,” she continued. “And I just want all you Democrats who cheated in the election or who voted for him legitimately: You just killed my son.”

McCollum criticized Biden’s “diplomatic crap” with “Taliban terrorists” who “just blew up my son.”

She said the Biden administration has not said told her that they are sorry for failing.
