(Sep. 2, 2021) — In his Twitter feed on Wednesday afternoon, former Acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Richard Grenell wrote that he met with 45th President of the United States Donald Trump earlier that day and revealed what they discussed on his new locals.com account.
The announcement was behind a supporter-only paywall. However, appearing on “Hannity” Wednesday night, Grenell made the revelation that he and Trump had spoken about the billions of dollars of U.S. military equipment and munitions left in Afghanistan by the Biden regime during its departure from the country, which ended on Monday.
The interview begins at 15:24 here.
After Hannity voiced his outrage at Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan exit despite opposing advice from the intelligence community, Grenell responded that he has been “flooded” with communications from former and current intelligence officials, “career Foreign Service officers” and others “complaining about the chaos.”
He is investigating “quite a few claims” originating in Germany, he said, associated with “a lot of refugees trying to rush through the process.” He was unable to comment further, he said.
Grenell served under Trump as ambassador to Germany prior to becoming Acting DNI.
“Everybody outside of Washington, DC really understands what’s at stake here,” Grenell said. “We’ve got chaos going on. Joe Biden himself said 90% of the Americans were rescued…The rest of us see this is a failure that will continue to go on and on, and we are going to be less safe because of this. They have equipment, big equipment; you have rifles, you have guns, you have helicopters, all in the hands of the Taliban…”
The other guest on the segment, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine, discussed a Reuters revelation that during an July 23 phone call with then-Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, Biden premised the additional U.S. military aid Ghani requested on Ghani’s staging an event geared toward changing the “perception” that the Taliban was rapidly gaining ground.
Two excerpts of the call transcript published by Reuters read:
BIDEN: You know, I am a moment late. But I mean it sincerely. Hey look, I want to make it clear that I am not a military man any more than you are, but I have been meeting with our Pentagon folks, and our national security people, as you have with ours and yours, and as you know and I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren’t going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban.
And there’s a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.
BIDEN: If you empower Bismillah [Defense Minister Bismillah Khan Mohammadi] to execute a strategy focused on key parts of the population centers, and I’m not a military guy, so I’m not telling you what that plan should precisely look like, you’re going to get not only more help, but you’re going to get a perception that is going to change in terms of how , um…[unclear].. our allies and folks here in the States and other places think you’re doing.
You clearly have the best military, you have 300,000 well-armed forces versus 70-80,000 and they’re clearly capable of fighting well, we will continue to provide close air support, if we know what the plan is and what we are doing. And all the way through the end of August, and who knows what after that.
As the Taliban moved into Kabul over the weekend of August 14-15 and the Afghan Army disintegrated, Ghani, who was educated in the U.S., fled to the United Arab Emirates amidst allegations he absconded with “as much as $169 million in U.S. funds meant to support the Afghan government.”
Ghani has denied the claim.
The timing of the segment did not allow for Grenell to elaborate on the fate of the U.S. military equipment in question.
A majority-Shiite Islamic state, Iran and the Sunni Islamic Taliban were in conflict when the Taliban ruled Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001. According to i24news, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh, said his country “supports the peaceful transition of power to an inclusive government.”
According to The Tehran Times, Iran’s special envoy to Afghanistan has stated Iran’s advocacy of “a political solution to the Afghanistan conflict” as opposed to a military one.
Update, 11:43 a.m. EDT: WorldIsraelNews related evidence on Thursday from several sources allegedly showing “Humvees and other military vehicles spotted on the Semnan-Garmsar road in Iran.”
Is this equipment we gave to the Afghan military?
In February, 2020 when Trump signed the agreement with the Taliban there were 18,000 US troops in Afghanistan. When Trump left office in January, 2021 there were 2500 left.
Did the 15,500 troops take all of their equipment with them when they pulled out?
Do all US politicians buy numerous suitcases to make sure that they can take as much cash with them upon their removal from office?
Politicians’ $kickbacks$ from corporations and foreign governments are all done electronically.
Switzerland banks’ lights are on.
The Taliban took over Afghanistan and captured $BILLION$ of military equipment on Biden’s watch, not Trump’s.
Or was it billions of Afghanistan’s military equipment?
Failed deflection. The Taliban now have those weapons of war because of Biden, not Trump.
Biden this; Biden that.
Obama’s fingerprints are all over the takeover of this Constitutional Republic since the CIA released Obama into the bowels of Illinois, then to all of the citizens and the non-citizens-alike living in the USA.
Absolutely, positively, no bouts a doubt it!
Joe Biden didn’t denounce the U.S. Constitution as “a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf. [whether you want it to or not]”. The ineligible, America hating, racist, Marxist, Muslim from Kenya denounced the U.S. Constitution like that in 1991.
Joe Biden also wasn’t the one who wrote a book about fulfilling his father’s dreams of ridding his country of “White Colonialism”. The ineligible, America hating, racist, Marxist, Muslim from Kenya wrote “Dreams From My Father” in 1995.
Joe Biden also wasn’t the one who launched a campaign for political office in the home of an admitted domestic terrorist couple. The ineligible, America hating, racist, Marxist, Muslim from Kenya did that in the home of admitted domestic terrorists William Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dorn in 1995.
Joe Biden also wasn’t the one who joined a radical Socialist/Communist political organization to aid and abet his campaign for political office. The ineligible, America hating, racist, Marxist, Muslim from Kenya joined the “New Party” (Democratic Socialists of America/Communist Party USA) to aid and abet his 1996 campaign for Illinois State Senator.
Joe Biden also wasn’t the one who said that, during his college years, he sought out and associated with radical Marxist professors and students. The ineligible, America hating, racist, Marxist, Muslim from Kenya said that in “Dreams From My Father”.
Joe Biden also wasn’t the one who during the final week of his presidential campaign adamantly and animatedly proclaimed: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America!”. The ineligible, America hating, racist, Marxist, Muslim from Kenya proclaimed that in 2008.
Absolutely James Carter,
The number of people who were and/or later became complicit in Obama’s obvious takeover of America from the inside is huge and those people, both parties, will forever protect Obama because they are complicit in effectively giving America’s government and her military to her enemies the moment John Roberts was allowed, without objection, to swear-in Barack Hussein Obama as America’s putative president and commander-in chief. A huge crime that starts with ignoring their sworn oath to protect the Constitution, and then becomes being part of the still on-going cover-up of the biggest criminal act against America and her Constitution in history…..by far.
Both parties are complicit and that is why both parties fear president Trump. They know from Trump’s past words and actions that he knows the truth about the Soros funded; Brennan and the CIA created total fraud Barack Hussein Obama and they were afraid as president he would release that truth. Subsequently, President Trump was kept under siege with bogus impeachment attempts and constant lies echoed by the 98% Obama protecting media, and then removed from office in a blatantly stolen election……
Trying to “do something” about saving America by going after Obama’s puppet, Joe Biden, is not going to work. Obama himself must be fully exposed and charged as the ineligible, identity fraud con-artist on a mission for Soros and himself and others to destroy America from the inside, which he is. He must be charged with many crimes, including treason, for America to recover from 8 years plus of The Obama Fraud.
Without going after Obama, recovery will not happen……….This is not even complicated, but will it ever be done? Trying to go against the forces unleashed by Obama while not touching Obama himself means America loses forever.
Saving America will take courage and the will to leave no one guilty of trying to destroy her untouched even if they are, as with Obama, both race and ineligibility protected………………..
Excellent book which details the huge number of “coincidences” in Obama’s past:
