Transcript: Biden Asked Afghan President To Lie For Him In Return For Support

https://thefederalist.com/2021/09/01/transcript-biden-asked-afghan-president-to-lie-for-him-in-return-for-support/


---QUOTATION---
“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 told President Ghani.
---END QUOTATION---


Maybe those Afghan politicians never took creating an independent Afghan government and military seriously, it was all just a way to make money as long as it lasted, and then immediately leave the sinking ship. Can't really blame them, they likely knew the project was futile.


---QUOTATION---
“We will continue to provide close air support, if we know what the plan is and what we are doing,” Biden said.
---END QUOTATION---


Apparently that air support never materialized. Maybe because Biden betrayed the Afghan president, and/or because the Afghan president didn't have any "plan" whatsoever, just like Biden himself?

Or maybe the Afghan president realized Biden only intended to extend the air support to make Biden's own US withdrawal look like a success, and the Afghan president refused to play...

Afghanistan is an entirely different culture with a different religion. Democracy means nothing to the masses living through out the entire country. The US propped up the Afghan Government in Kabul, but it was a bubble. Kabul was modernized with new buildings, new infrastructure and the trappings of a modern world. Women got jobs, were taught in school and treated as near equals but it was all an illusion that couldn't last forever. When the bubble got popped by the US withdrawal, there was no other outcome.

The poorly planned end started when the US did the most stupidest thing by pulling out first of their greatest military base Bagram Air Force Base. This was the center of all Military operations and where they should have started evacuating all the Afghans that helped us.

Instead Bagram was abandoned, the Afghan Army was not informed and the power was cut. Looters saw this and were the first to get there before the Afghan Government even knew what was going on. This was a total screw-up. Pulling out all the US troops, who should have been used to support the evacuation, was a clusterfuck when the Biden Administration had to reverse their decision and sent them all back in. It's like total idiots were advising and Biden was making one poor choice after another.

Looters invaded Afghanistan’s Bagram airbase after US left without telling new commander
