There’s one part of Joe Biden’s past that he doesn’t want brought up. But he can’t hide any longer.
Because a new report about Joe Biden’s darkest secret has finally been revealed.
Despite the fact that it has been nearly two years since a bomber from ISIS-K stormed the Kabul Airport, executing 13 military personnel and injuring many more, Pentagon officials continue to argue that the attack was “not preventable.”
A recent revelation, however, claims that U.S. military leaders not only knew about the impending danger, but also had two opportunities to destroy the terrorist network responsible for the attack.
Published on the second anniversary of the Taliban takeover, ‘Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End’ was written by Jerry Dunleavy and James Hasson and released on August 15.
For their bombing analysis, Dunleavy and Hasson combed through data gathered through FOI (Freedom of Information) requests, records from the Pentagon, and interviews with military officers involved in the strike.
According to their findings, American officials had intelligence indicating ISIS-K was planning to target U.S. and multinational forces at the airport for nine days before to the attack. According to Dunleavy and Hasson, an official declaration from an officer with “target engagement authority” to launch strikes in defense of American forces may be found in the Pentagon’s own bombing report.
The officer claimed that intelligence showed ISIS-K was planning on targeting the United States and the Taliban in order to destabilize the region and topple the government.
The officer “conducted a targeting effort focused on ISIS K threats leading into Kabul,” and then he asked for permission to launch a strike.
However, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan Forward Commander Rear Admiral Peter Vasly and Major General Chris Donahue turned down the proposal out of fear of a “negative response” from the Taliban.
This evidence runs counter to the Pentagon’s assertion that the Taliban had no prior knowledge of the imminent attack and that U.S. intelligence regarding potential threats was vague.
“Based upon our investigation, at the tactical level, this was not preventable,” determined Brig. Gen. Lance Curtis.
Hasson criticized the American administration.
Hasson told the Daily Mail that “leaders in D.C. made one unforced error after another throughout the withdrawal,” with each miscalculation increasing the danger to troops on the ground.
Thirteen heroic Americans perished because U.S. commanders compromised with the Taliban when they found themselves cornered.
The Biden administration’s handling of Afghanistan continues to be one of the worst parts of Joe Biden’s entire career, and it continues to be a stain for him two years later.
Americans are now learning that the federal government was aware of the dangers of the event that led to one of the most deadly terrorist attacks in recent memory.
This has echoes of when the Obama administration denied that they knew that the situation in Benghazi was going to be as bad as it was.
But Americans quickly learned that Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama were intimately aware of what was leading up to the violence that took place on September 11, 2012.
It seems Joe Biden has taken a page right out of the Obama administration’s playbook.
