1/4 These terrorists, along w/ other groups of terrorists from neighboring & far distance countries under the protection of Taliban, enter across the Durand Line with the clear consent of Pak. to destabilize Afg. Their goal is to challenge the world & turn Afg into another Syria.
2/4 As former governor of #Nangarhar, when we defeated ISIS-K/Daesh in the province, many of the fighters that were captured reported to have crossed over from Iran and Pakistan.
3/4 Either international community should continue to support #Afghan government and people in this fight, or remain delusional not to respond, which ultimately result in a higher cost in the future for regional and world security.

Every since US signed Doha agreement with Afghan Taliban & announced a military exit from Afghanistan, Kabul govt & Indian disinfo machine has intensified propaganda that AfgTaliban fighting in Afg are based in Pakistan.

Let’s take a look at merits of this argument:


There are around 3mil Afghans living in Pakistan as refugees, businessmen, students, etc.

Predominately among them r ethnic Pashtuns who’ve migrated into refugee settlements in ethnic Pashtun populated areas in Balochistan & KP provinces of Pakistan.…

Before taking an analytical look at the prospect of “AfgTaliban based in Afghan settlements in Pakistan,” let’s remember that acc to Long War Journal, Kabul controls 133, AfgTaliban 75 with 189 contested districts" within Afg providing plenty of space for AfgTaliban to hide.

The #Afghan #Taliban organization has been able to take control of provinces, outposts and military bases with astonishing speed with the withdrawal of #US and #NATO forces from Afghan soil. What are the reasons for this successful conquest? Taliban explains: 1/12
1. Forgiving attitude towards members of the pro-American Afghan National Army in #Kabul. Amir Taliban decided to pardon any soldier in the national army who would leave the army and not be held accountable for his previous activities against Taliban forces.
2. "Wise Dawa"; Focusing on preaching for the importance of sticking to the straight path and calling on the soldiers of the pro-American Afghan army to lay down their arms.

Successive US administrations have largely perceived human rights more as an obstacle than as an essential component of addressing #Afghanistan’s problems.

This approach has been catastrophic...
As US forces withdraw from #Afghanistan, many in the US national security establishment are rehashing old debates about the conflict & what could have led to “victory” – more troops, looser rules of engagement, etc.

It's all very familiar to what happened after the Vietnam War.
But all of these arguments, "grievously devalue the devastating consequences of the war for Afghans — civilians and fighters alike", as my colleague, @pagossman writes...…

Ce matin, j'ai appris l'assassinat par les #Taliban du second #auxiliaire #afghan de l'#armée française via son frère que j'ai pu avoir au téléphone.
⏩Basir Jan m'avait envoyé un mail l'an dernier "Please Help Us''.
⏩ La 🇫🇷 avait rejeté par 3 fois sa demande de rapatriement.
Cela fait des années que j'alerte sans cesse les autorités de la Défense et des Affaires étrangères sur la potentialité de ce genre d'assassinat, en vain... Le dernier rapport de @JCLarsonneur sur le sujet a conclu que ces anciens #auxiliaires #afghans n'étaient pas en danger.

Since 1880s when Abdurrahman Khan massacred 65% of Hazaras, took their lands in southern-central afghanistan & gave as gift to ghilzai tribe, Hazaras have been systematically persecuted in Afghanistan.

Katib - 6 Vol. Set (The History of Afghanistan)

From 1880 to 1990s, #Hazaras endured continued systemic discrimination and persecution under different #afghan regimes. They were banned from entering into higher education institutions and holding government positions.

During the 1990s, the systemic persecution of contintued. A clear example is when Taliban captured Mazar o 8-8-98 they started to target kill Hazaras, resultating in the massacre of up to 8000 Hazaras.

7 years ago today, @JanisShenwary and I joined our friends in Congress to announce the Afghan Allies Protection Extension Act of 2014. It has been used to keep the Afghan SIV program alive ever since.
Little did we know at that time just how much more work we’d have to do. We’re still not there yet. Now is our most desperate hour.
We need your help. Please contact your member of Congress and President Joe Biden. Urge them to support an immediate air evacuation of our #Afghan wartime allies to #Guam. #SaveOurTerps #SaveTheSIV #SIV #SaveThem #WartimeAllies #Interpreters

“European allies are pushing the U.S. to delay its withdrawal from Afghanistan—which U.S. officials had suggested could be complete by as early as July 4—to give NATO allies more time and support to leave, U.S. officials said…

In another complication, Turkey, which for years has secured the airport in Kabul, has told the U.S. and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization that its troops may leave as well, the officials said…
Turkey’s potential departure, after it initially had planned to stay until after the coalition withdrawal, could prompt some nations to reconsider plans to keep embassies open in the capital without an international force at Hamid Karzai International Airport, officials said.”

U.S. Secretary of State @SecBlinken tried hard to sell @JoeBiden ‘s decision to withdraw all American troops from Afghanistan during an unannounced visit to the country. #Afghan #AfghanistanWar Image
When announcing the decision, @JoeBiden said U.S. has achieved its objectives of preventing “future terrorist attacks against the United States”. #Afghan
But the real objective for @JoeBiden to pull out U.S. troops is perhaps to play into America’s domestic politics and establish himself as the President who ended the country’s longest war. #AfghanistanWar

I cannot stop thinking about this one #Afghan Army Lieutenant Colonel I met early in my tour in 2008. He ran a depot outside of Gardez, massive warehouses filled with weapons, bullets, body armor, boots, and uniforms. Enough to equip an Army. (a thread)
The previous day I had visited an Afghan police outpost manned by two teenagers and an old man. They had one weapon that actually could fire bullets (the other two were for show and lacked firing pins). None of them had been paid in months, had a uniform, or shoes.
When I asked where the Taliban were in this area they pointed at the house across the street and said, “they are there and now that you have come they will attack us as soon as you leave.”
