The Biden administration has agreed to take money from U.S. taxpayers and send it to Afghanistan, where the power in control, the terrorist Taliban organization, already was given $80 billion in American war machinery when the president abruptly ordered U.S. troops to abandon their posts there, a report says.
The AP reports the the Taliban says U.S. “has agreed to provide humanitarian aid” to Afghanistan, which the report described as “on the brink of an economic disaster.”
“The statement came at the end of the first direct talks between the former foes since the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops at the end of August,” the report said.
While the Taliban statement confirmed a commitment to send humanitarian aid, the U.S. government statement worded it differently, revealing that the American government and the terrorists “discussed the United States’ provision of robust humanitarian assistance, directly to the Afghan people.”
The U.S. statement also made it clear it was not in the plans for the U.S. to recognize the terrorists as a government even though they took over the country in August when U.S. troops withdrew and the government that had been set up under U.S. supervision collapsed.
