Joe Biden and his State Department have a new buddy.
After meeting with the Taliban over the weekend, the administration called the Taliban “candid and professional.”
Considering the terrorist group has already threatened to block any efforts to control radicals in Afghanistan, that is a pretty shocking assessment of the group.
Negotiating with Terrorists
The Biden administration held meetings with the Taliban over the weekend.
According to reports, part of the negotiations were to be to secure the transport of citizens, green card, and SIV holders.
State Department spokesperson Ned Price stated, “U.S. delegation focused on security and terrorism concerns and safe passage for U.S. citizens, other foreign nationals and our Afghan partners, as well as on human rights, including the meaningful participation of women and girls in all aspects of Afghan society.
“The two sides also discussed the United States’ provision of robust humanitarian assistance, directly to the Afghan people.
“The discussions were candid and professional with the U.S. delegation reiterating that the Taliban will be judged on its actions, not only its words.”
Now, read that statement very carefully because it sure sounds like Biden is about to send a boatload of cash over to Afghanistan.
If anyone thinks that “robust humanitarian assistance” will ever get to the people of Afghanistan, they are out of their minds.
Also, considering the Taliban has already dialed back women’s rights, do they think these discussions were taken seriously by the Taliban?
This meeting was a con, period.
The Taliban needs money, and it looks like Biden is about to open the checkbook on empty promises.
