GAO’s stunning list gives clear picture of just how much military equipment Biden left for Taliban

One thing is certain about what is frequently referred to as the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle, a Republican president would have been finished as a result of the de facto surrender to the Taliban.

From the deaths of 13 U.S. service members to an innocent Afghan family being droned in Kabul, resulting in 10 deaths, the media had little interest in dwelling on the story once the last U.S. military troops were out. Never mind that hundreds, perhaps thousands of U.S. citizens were left behind. And that was not all that President Joe Biden opted to leave behind, as the U.S. abandoned over $84 billion in military equipment and weaponry in Afghanistan. Largess that instantly made the Taliban one of the best-equipped militaries in the region.

With America pouring over $2 billion of aid into Ukraine to help the Eastern European country fight for its freedom in the face of the Russian invasion, the abandoned military supplies take on added meaning. For the record, much of the equipment was originally supplied to Afghan security forces.

Not that the media is eager to remind Americans. But New York businessman Feliz Sater was willing to share the massive bounty gifted to the Taliban, citing the Government Accountability Office.

“Thanks to the Government Accountability Office, we now have a clear picture of just how much U.S. military equipment has fallen into the hands of the Taliban, thanks to this Administration’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan,” he tweeted.

Sater then followed with a list — supported by Task & Purpose — that boggles the mind, as seen here:

Turns out, Ukraine had military transport aircraft in Afghanistan as the country crumbled, evacuating some of its citizens. Michael Caputo, who served as assistant secretary of public affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services in the Trump administration, took note of that in a tweet:

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:
