It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost been a year since the corrupt, fake Afghan government collapsed after gobbling up hundreds of billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. As you may remember, the government was so fake that it completely collapsed in a matter of days. That means, among other things, that the U.S. left behind billions of dollars in equipment as we scrambled to evacuate everyone left inside the country.
Our next guest, “Duke” Gentile, was a recon platoon sergeant for 13 years. After the Afghan collapse, he helped run Operation Northstar, the volunteer effort to evacuate the many people left deep in enemy territory once the Taliban took over.
We need a volunteer force, because America’s elites have a new favorite toy. For twenty years, they funneled unlimited money into Afghanistan while achieving nothing, and then when their failure was obvious they ditched and blamed the entire failure on the Afghans themselves, including people who risked their lives to support U.S. troops. The State Department and Congress don’t care. They’ve moved on to Ukraine as their new favorite corrupt government.
According to Duke, there are still 35,000 former U.S. allies inside Afghanistan, and the State Department is only getting out a single plane each month. Duke joins us now.
