Chaos is unfolding across Israel as the nation fights back after an unprovoked attack. Terror group Hamas killed over 700 people (including Americans) and injured many more. They took hundreds hostage and are reportedly threatening to kill them.
The Biden administration was apparently caught flat-footed by the attack. Despite the vast resources of federal intelligence agencies, the government was unable to prevent the carnage. The State Department is scrambling to defend itself, claiming the $6 billion it gave to Iran did not go to help this attack.
But Biden faces more scrutiny over this growing conflict. Years ago, the president made a decision that upended twenty years of American sacrifice. Many warned this decision would come back to hurt the world. And now, an Israeli commander has revealed it has.
From The Post Millennial:
An Israeli commander said that US small arms that were left behind during President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021 have found their way into the hands of Palestinian terror groups in the Gaza Strip. Weapons the US abandoned during the tumultuous and deadly withdrawal were seized by the Taliban.
An Israeli commander told Newsweek that weapons left behind by Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal are being used by Hamas in this attack. When Biden ordered American troops out of the country, they were forced to leave behind over $28 billion in weapons and equipment.
The Taliban immediately captured these resources and used them to take back the country. According to reports, the group has sold much of these weapons and equipment, including guns, munitions, and even vehicles.
According to the commander, some of this equipment ended up in Iran’s hands. Iran is being blamed for funding the current attack. It is possible the nation has learned how to “manufacture” these weapons, so they can build more.
This is a heavy blow to the Biden administration. Already, Trump has blamed the White House for the attack. Biden gave Iran $6 billion just last month in a prisoner exchange. Secretary of State Blinken admitted that Iran “always” uses money to support terrorism.
But this news appears to be another black eye for Biden’s foreign policy, which some have said is the worst in U.S. presidential history. Biden has been blamed for conflict in Afghanistan, Ukraine, Tawain, and now Israel.
Republican lawmakers are even suggesting Hamas’s weapons came from the cache the U.S. provided to Ukraine. Biden has spent nearly $100 billion to provide Ukraine with weapons to fight Russia. Republicans seem to suspect that some of those weapons have been sold on the black market.
- An Israeli commander claimed Hamas is using weapons left behind in Afghanistan.
- Biden abandoned billions of dollars worth of weapons when he pulled U.S. troops.
- The Taliban has reportedly sold these weapons to Iran and other groups.
