The Taliban Crow About Getting US Aid While Americans Are Still Trapped – RedState

The Biden Administration stated that how they handled the Taliban going ahead after we pulled out of Afghanistan could be contingent on how they handled issues like human rights.

In order we reported, they’re not going to assist with ISIS (as a result of, frankly, they’re extra according to them). They’re being oppressive with their very own individuals. They’re nonetheless not letting Individuals miss of Mazar-i-Sharif eventually verify (not that the Biden Administration or the media appears to care about that).

However that’s not stopping the Biden of us from speaking about offering support to Afghanistan.

In line with the Taliban, Biden officers agreed to the help throughout latest talks in Doha, Qatar.

Whereas State Division spokesperson Ned Worth wouldn’t particularly verify that, he did say it was mentioned and praised the Taliban, saying the talks had been “candid {and professional}.”

From NY Publish:

“On October 9 and 10, an interagency delegation traveled to Doha, Qatar to fulfill with senior Taliban representatives. The U.S. delegation centered on safety and terrorism considerations and secure passage for U.S. residents, different overseas nationals and our Afghan companions, in addition to on human rights, together with the significant participation of ladies and ladies in all elements of Afghan society,” Worth stated in an announcement.

“The 2 sides additionally mentioned the US’ provision of sturdy humanitarian help, on to the Afghan individuals. The discussions had been candid {and professional} with the U.S. delegation reiterating that the Taliban shall be judged on its actions, not solely its phrases.”

The Biden Administration reported in September that they might be offering humanitarian support of a further $64 million to Afghanistan. It’s not clear if they’re speaking about much more support with these talks.

Translation: the Biden staff is slicing cash with out the Taliban doing something in any respect to earn it or remediating their habits in any manner. Certainly, the Biden staff has extra reward for the Taliban then they do for unvaccinated Individuals who they demonize.

Or are we going to see extra Individuals set free of Afghanistan after this assembly? We noticed some individuals allowed out after the announcement about support in September. However don’t say ‘ransom’ or ‘pallets of money.’

Then there’s one other factor that’s questionable — like the whole lot else that the Biden staff says. The help is to be delivered “on to the Afghan individuals.” What does that imply precisely? The U.S. has beforehand spoken about sending it to NGOs and UN companies.

However UN companies just like the World Meals Program are debating issues like money airlifts – that means straight distributing cash to Afghans in want and or sending the money to be held in banks. I don’t find out about you, however does anybody suppose money airlifts aren’t finally going to go to the Taliban? I imply possibly I’m simply cynical, however sending money right into a traditionally corrupt system doesn’t precisely sound like that’s a good suggestion.

Why are we not saying ‘no cash till all Individuals and Afghan allies are out’? As a result of their financial system is in such disaster, we maintain some leverage over them at this level, however nobody appears keen to carry them to account right here.
