Fact: the Taliban now has military-grade American weapons worth billions of dollars.
Because the Biden administration left them behind in Afghanistan.
Rather than destroying the weapons…
Rather than ensuring the Afghan army could survive…
Rather than making sure that no terrorists could get American weapons…
Biden hastily withdrew American forces and created a catastrophe in Afghanistan.
Apparently the Biden regime knows this is a disaster.
There were multiple official reports detailing how American weapons got into the hands of terrorists to use against America.
But now the Biden regime has ordered these reports to be DELETED and CENSORED from all federal government websites.
You should be.
More details below:
If you delete the data from the public record, maybe people will begin to think it didn’t happen.

Official reports indicate that the Taliban now has $82.9 billion of American weapons.
This is not rumor.
This is a fact.
But the Biden regime is attempting to cover-up their self-inflicted disaster by deleting it from government websites.
The War in Afghanistan has always been a black box, but the Biden administration just made matters worse.
According to an admission obtained from the State Department, Biden officials recently directed federal agencies to scrub their websites of official reports detailing the $82.9 billion in military equipment and training provided to the Afghan security forces since 2001.
The scrubbed audits and reports included detailed accounting of what the U.S. had provided to Afghan forces, down to the number of night vision devices, hand grenades, Black Hawk helicopters, and armored vehicles.
Reports further quantified 208 aircraft and helicopters; 75,000 war vehicles – including 22 Humvees, 50,000 tactical vehicles and nearly 1,000 mine resistant vehicles; and 600,000 weapons – including 350,000 M4 and M16 rifles, 60,000 machine guns, and 25,000 grenade launchers.
The State Department admitted to removing the reports but justified the move as a way to protect Afghan allies. According to a spokesperson:
“The safety of our Afghan contacts is of utmost importance to us. The State Department advised other federal agencies of to [sic] review their web properties for content that highlights cooperation/participation between an Afghan citizen and the USG or a USG partner and remove from public view if it poses a security risk.”
It’s worth noting that the Biden administration already put these partners at risk when officials provided lists of Afghan nationals to the Taliban in a misguided attempt to clear them for evacuation. The Taliban, a known terrorist organization with a history of murdering Afghan citizens working alongside U.S. forces, should never have been trusted with those names.
The Biden regime is known for lying.
Compare that to the Trump administration, which was transparent and open with the public.
President Trump was incredibly accessible to the press.
He answered unscripted questions daily.
Yet Biden has scripted press conferences.
And now his administration is even altering public records to “protect” his failures.
“…Things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” President Biden told Afghanistan President Ghani during a July phone call.
“And there is a need, WHETHER IT IS TURE OR NOT, there is a need to project a different picture.”

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first coverup regarding Afghanistan.
It turns out that as early as July, Biden knew that Afghanistan would fall.
There was a leaked phone call in which Biden pressured the Afghan president to create a “perception” that the Taliban wasn’t winning.
Per the Daily Mail:
President Joe Biden wanted the now-departed Afghan president to create the ‘perception’ that his government was capable of holding off the Taliban – an indication he knew it was only a matter of time before the US ally fell to the Islamic group even while reassuring Americans at home that it would not happen.
In the last phone call between Biden and his Afghan then-counterpart Ashraf Ghani, the American president said they needed to change perceptions of the Taliban’s rapid advance ‘whether it is true or not,’ according to excerpts published on Tuesday.
The call took place on July 23 – weeks before the fall of Kabul – but Biden on Tuesday repeated his assertion that his team was caught flat-footed by the rapid Taliban takeover of the country.
‘The assumption was that more than 300,000 Afghan national security forces that we had trained over the past two decades, and equipped, would be a strong adversary in their civil wars with the Taliban,’ Biden told the nation in a televised speech from the White House on Tuesday.
‘That assumption that the Afghan government would be able to hold on for a period of time beyond military drawdown turned out not to be accurate.
‘But I still instructed our national security team to prepare for every eventuality, even that one. And that’s what we did.
‘So, we were ready when the Afghan security forces, after two decades of fighting for their country and losing thousands of their own, did not hold on as long as anyone expected.’
Four weeks before Kabul collapsed, Ghani pleaded for more air support and money for soldiers who had not had a pay rise in a decade.
A transcript obtained by Reuters from an anonymous source reveals two leaders oblivious to the impending disaster and an American president focused on spinning the message.
‘I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,’ Biden said.
‘And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.’
The Taliban were already capturing district after district across the country, while the US and Afghanistan were at loggerheads over tactics.
In the months leading up to the chaotic US military withdrawal from Afghanistan, which was completed on Monday, Biden was telling the public a different story – that the withdrawal would be done smoothly and that Washington’s Afghan allies were in control.
‘I don’t think anybody anticipated that,’ Biden told ABC News when asked about the swift disintegration of the Afghan security forces.
In April, Biden said that the US couldn’t stay in Afghanistan forever and that it was time to bring the troops home.
It continues to become more and more clear that the Biden administration is nothing but a house of cards.
… A perception based on lies.
Whether or not you liked President Trump, you knew what we were getting.
But with Biden, it appears to be cover-up after cover-up!
