Warren Makes Stunning Claim on Afghan Evacuation: ‘They Left No American-Owned Equipment Behind’

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massassachuttes made shocking comments about Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

Appearing on the left-wing outlet MSNBC, Warren said evacuation “was actually an amazing undertaking” where “our military was able to get about 124,000 people out.”

“They left no American-owned equipment behind,” she continued.

“We should be proud of President Biden and proud of our military,” she said.

Host Lawrence O’Donnell asked, “What was your takeaway from the hearing about the evacuation from Afghanistan?”

Warren said, “That it was actually an amazing undertaking. It was done under chaotic circumstances.”

“Because the government had collapsed. Because the army had melted away, the Afghan Army, and that, even in the midst of all of that, our military was able to get about 124,000 people out.”

“They left no American-owned equipment behind. They managed to execute that. And, yes, it was at risk.”

“We lost a young woman from Massachusetts. I’m working now on trying to get the Congressional Medal of Honor for the people who we lost right at the end.”

“But we knew it was a risky undertaking and the military performed. We should be proud of President Biden and proud of our military,” she concluded.

The U.S. supposedly “demilitarized,” or rendered useless, nearly 170 pieces of equipment in Kabul.

Despite this statement from the U.S. Central Command, there has been video and photo evidence of the Taliban operating U.S. equipment left be

This includes 70 MRAPs and 23 Humvees – military vehicles – and 73 aircraft.

“Those aircraft will never fly again,” General Kenneth “Frank” McKenzie said. “They’ll never be able to be operated by anyone. Most of them were non-mission capable, to begin with, but certainly they’ll never be able to be flown again.”

However, disturbing footage showed the Taliban flying seized US Black Hawk helicopters over Afghanistan. It appears that a person is suspended below as the helicopter flies around.

Immediately after the last U.S. plane left, footage shows the Taliban taking over the Kabul airport.

They celebrated with gunfire after the last American left. The Taliban “joyously fired guns into the air,” according to Agence France-Presse. BBC News also broadcasted the footage of gunfire.

Another video shows them entering a hangar with equipment the US military left behind.

A US general said this equipment is “permanently disabled” and can “never be used again.”

However, this footage is causing widespread speculation about whether the equipment is, in fact, permanently disabled.

The Talib Times tweeted, “At this time, the Islamic Emirate’s air force helicopters are flying over Kandahar city and patrolling the city.”

Someone is clearly seen hanging below the chopper as it hovers in the sky. Initially, it was unclear exactly how he is attached or if he is alive, NY Post notes.

According to the BBC, the video does not show a man hanged from the helicopter.

Upon closer examination, the person hanging below the helicopter is alive with their hands raised. The Black Hawk is equipped with rescue hoists.

“Several Afghanistan experts, quoting Taliban sources, have told the BBC that the flight yesterday was an attempt to fix a flag over a public building using their newly-captured US-built equipment,” the report says.
