Biden National Security Adviser Says U.S. May Give Economic Aid To Taliban

Come again?

Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan bizarrely claimed the U.S. is weighing delivering humanitarian and economic aid to the Taliban in Afghanistan.

What could possibly go wrong?

Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos asked Sullivan: “We’re going to work with the Taliban. Does that include the prospect of giving them aid?”

“Well, first of all, we do believe that there is an important dimension of humanitarian assistance that should go directly to the people of Afghanistan,” Sullivan replied. “They need help with respect to health and food aid and other forms of subsistence and we do intend to continue that.”

Sullivan didn’t elaborate how the U.S. would manage to deliver aid “directly” to the Afghanistan people without first going through the Taliban, which has total control of the country.

But Sullivan did admit that if the Taliban played nice and upheld their “international obligations,” then they could also receive economic aid.

“Secondly, when it comes to our economic and development assistance relationship with the Taliban, that will be about the Taliban’s actions,” Sullivan said.

“It will be about they follow through on their commitments, their commitments to safe passage for Americans and Afghan allies. Their commitment to not allow Afghanistan to be a base from which terrorists can attack the United States or any other country. Their commitment with respect to upholding their international obligations.”

“It’s going to be up to them and we will wait and see by their actions how we end up responding in terms of the economic and development assistance,” he added.

As if the Taliban haven’t received enough from the United States.

Biden left behind about $90 billion worth of military weaponry and equipment that the Taliban has seized, making it the third most powerful military force on Earth.

As Biden sleeps, Biden’s headless administration continues to fumble the so called “mission” in Afghanistan, treading water until the hostage situation inevitably begins.
