Leaked Memo: Dozens of State Officials Warned of Potential Afghanistan Collapse

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that a leaked memo indicates dozens of State Officials in Kabul warned that Afghanistan could collapse should the August 31st deadline to withdrawal be kept.

During a press conference prior to the chaos, Biden was asked: “Is a Taliban takeover of Afghanistan now inevitable?”

To this he replied: “No, it is not.”

He added: “Because you—the Afghan troops have 300,000 well-equipped—as well-equipped as any army in the world—and an air force against something like 75,000 Taliban. It is not inevitable.”

However, it's now come to light that “the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the Taliban’s advance was imminent.” From ZeroHedge:

Using a special ‘dissent channel' within the State Department, the cable – sent to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and another top State Department official – warned of ‘rapid territorial gains by the Taliban and the subsequent collapse of Afghan security forces,' and offered suggestions on how to speed up evacuation and mitigate the obvious crisis slated to ensue, two people told the WSJ.

The man is obviously mentally incapacitated, however, would he actually ignore such grave warnings and violate common sense where the consequences could be utterly tragic? Or, did his handlers want this result?

Widely read political commentator Brandon Smith of the Alternative Market Project says he's “not buying the “Biden is incompetent story because it is too simplistic”, and that “Biden is a muppet, a mascot, a front-man for the public to love or hate”

Smith's forecasts have borne out far more than not.
