In our developing story: Kabul Should Not Be Turned Into Another YEMEN Or SYRIA Overpower: Former Afghanistan President WARN
A former Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani has finally spoken up and has denied the allegation against him of fleeing the country with a helicopter full of cash.
Coming out to speak for the first time in public after going into exile following the Taliban takeover of the nation’s capital, Kabul.
Speaking from exile, Ghani, confirmed in a video streamed on Facebook on Wednesday that he was in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai and as regards the reports about leaving the country in a helicopter filled with cash, he debunked the reports and stated he left the country to prevent bloodshed.
In respect to the report of leaving the country of cash, he said:
“I left with just a waistcoat and some clothes. The personality assassination against me has been ongoing, saying that I have taken money with me.”
The country’s former ministers have come out to criticize Ghani’s decision of leaving the country suddenly following the Taliban takeover of Kabul on Sunday but the former president has said on the video:
“I left on the advice of government officials, not solely my personal decision
Before this development, let us take you to what preceded in year 2018, back then, the Trump administration got the Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar released from prison.
Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo then met him in 2020. The Trump administration then invited the Taliban to the White House, it was reported that none of the Afghanistan governments were present
The meeting of the Trump administration and Taliban founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar did proceed as planned, they made a deal
So after the Taliban take over of Afghanistan, as we right to you right now, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is set to become the President of Afghanistan under Taliban rule after Kabul fell days ago without a single shot being fired
It was a free walk and takeover, as the Afghan forces just handed town after town to the Taliban without any fight. And so
President Joseph R. Biden Jr of the United States of America has to cut short his vacation on Monday, then traveled from Camp David in Maryland back to the White House in Washington DC
Over there he addressed the nation U.S and the global world. In his voice rising in a post share, He said, We went to Afghanistan almost 20 years ago with clear goals Read The President full Remark here
Mr. Biden then blasted Trump for the crazy deal he made with the Taliban. Delivering his most combative speech to date, President Biden insisted that he stands by his decision to end the 20-year-old Afghanistan war and stand to accept all criticism
Also said the President, that U.S Troops continue being in Afghanistan is not in the interest of the United States and has consumed trillions of American dollars and taken over 200,000 lives.
This is never a better time to end the war, never a better time than now, asserting that he stands “squarely” behind his decision to leave Afghanistan
President Biden said “after 20 years, I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces. That’s why we’re still there.” His hand going up and down, President Biden warned the Taliban that if they attack American personnel or disrupt evacuation of civilians from Kabul, they will be met with a devastating force
The American leader said although he will continue to defend human rights around the world and push for democratic institutions everywhere
It is not the business of the United States, again to occupy nations for 20 years and fight wars there for 20 years, and lose thousands of soldiers and contractors for 20 years, and spend trillions of dollars for 20 years, training people who may not be ready to fight for themselves
Many have come out to blame President Biden for how the exit was executed, in Biden’s voice, he replied to his critics with a question! what will you do in such circumstances?
When do you believe the 300,000 people who have been trained for 20 years will fight for their country but do not and just hand over town after town to the Taliban?
Or when Afghan forces watch television and see that America/Trump has already endorsed the Taliban and it is just a matter of time for them to take over?
Why should they waste time-fighting? Of course, they did not. And although everything seemed to crumble so fast, in reality, it was already a done deal that the Taliban’s has completely taken over Afghanistan leadership
The truth remains that the United States intelligence services did not just know it yet and misled the president and the entire country, a catastrophic intelligence failure that has led to the rush to evacuate civilians and diplomats within days when the Biden administration thought they had weeks or months
And now, no one knows how the coming days, weeks, months, or years will be, with the Taliban take over Afghanistan the former Afghan President has warned that Kabul Should Not Be Turned Into Another YEMEN Or SYRIA Overpower
