#CongressHearings: there was a third option between continous war and surrender to the #Taliban. Win that war, empower the people and reform the educational system.
There was no option to go in, defeat the Taliban in 2001, and leaving with no change in society. Like going to n WWII Nazi Germany, and leave without establishing a democratic republic.
In my view any #TalibanDeal is wrong, as would have been a #NaziDeal, or #FascistDeal. But the "deal" that was applied by the #Biden Adm on the ground, facilitated the rise of a #JihadiState. Reality on the ground.

I have been reporting on these protests against the #SDF and the #Deir al-Zor region for years. I was one of the few to independently report from the area in 2019, a few months after the Baghouz was liberated from #IS (#ISIS).

Thread with links:
Mine from 2019: "...diesel is three times as expensive in Shuhail as it is in the Kurdish-dominant north, despite the proximity of key oil fields, and that this price gouging is only one of many ways the US-backed SDF is making local residents desperate"

"....that doesn't justify what [the SDF is] doing. A 70-year-old man was killed. Four young men who had fought IS in the ranks of the SDF and two civilians were [killed] too. Why?”

Male relatives of those killed in a mysterious raid May 9 agreed to meet May 20 with Al-Monitor"

It is good that #Britain is prepared to play its role against #IS in Afghanistan. It is, however, a mystery what intelligence stream is going to be used and how planes in the Gulf could ever use such a stream in time.
Horrible to leave the dogs behind, though hardly a choice given hundreds of American and tends of thousands of Afghan humans were left.
#Pakistan overtly occupying a chunk of #Afghanistan in the south, even as it occupies the rest through the Taliban, Haqqani Network, and the other jihadists.

#Shia cleric Allama Arif Kazmi: US dropped bombs from airplanes when it entered Afghanistan, and dropped human when it left. They took their dogs in airplanes but abandoned their Afghan allies. Those who are unfaithful to God are destined to be humiliated in this way.
#Shia cleric Allama Arif Kazmi: US left Afghanistan so that #Taliban capture the country and Iran send Fatemiyoun fighters from Syria to fight Taliban, and pro-Turkey jihadis attack Syria. Supreme Leader foiled this anti-Shia plan, and asked Afghan Shias not to fight Taliban.
#Shia cleric Allama Arif Kazmi: Iran helped both US and #Taliban based on its national interests. Taliban comprise moderate Hanafi-Sufi and extremist Hanafi-Salafi. Taliban never attacked shrines. Mullah Umar's house was next to an Imambargah. Taliban killed 1200 #ISIS fighters.

"Jetzt stellt sich plötzlich die Frage, ob man die Taliban im Kampf gegen einen noch radikaleren Gegner unterstützen soll."

um nicht @DanieleGanser zitieren "zu müssen", weil das ja ein Illegaler Akt wäre:

„Die US-Besatzer im Irak hatten ein tragisches Talent dafür, sich […] ihre intelligentesten Feinde selbst zu schaffen und zu vereinen.“

Five rockets fired at Kabul airport some hours ago, presumably by #ISKP.
CENTCOM said the other day it was able to deal with rocket attacks on #US forces in Kabul, and that appears true: all of the #ISKP missiles overnight were intercepted
Afghan commanders, driven from their country, might join the British army

अमेरिका ने #काबुल_विस्फोटों की जिम्मेदार #ISIS के मुख्य साजिशकर्ता को ड्रोन अटैक में मार डालने का दावा किया है। बताया जा रहा है कि अमेरिका को उसकी पिन पॉइंट लोकेशन #तालिबान ने दी थी।

मतलब अमेरिका पिछले बीस साल से जिससे लड़ रहा था, अचानक ही उसके साथ काम करने लगा।
👇
गजब हो गया पेंटागन और तालिबान साथ साथ कंधे से कंधा मिलाकर काम कर रहे हैं। तालिबान ने पिछले बीस वर्ष में भले ही हजारों अमेरिकी सैनिक मारे हों, लेकिन काबुल हमले में मारे गये 13 अमेरिकी सैनिकों का बदला लेने के लिए तालिबान ने अमेरिका का एक सच्चे मित्र की तरह सहयोग किया है।
बिल्कुल " तेरा यार हूँ मैं..." की तर्ज पर।

तालिबान तो पहले से ही अमेरिका के साथ बातचीत में था। वह उन्हें बाहर जाने का सेफ पैसेज दे रहा था। फिर उसने #ISIS के उस आतंकी को मारने में भी अमेरिका का फूल उफ्फ सॉरी सॉरी फुल सपोर्ट किया। तालिबान के ऐसे हृदय परिवर्तन पर तो मेरी

The US has announced that it carried out a drone attack in eastern Afghanistan against a “planner” of an ISIL-affiliated group, a day after an attack outside Kabul’s airport that killed at least 175 people and 13 US troops. 1/5

“The unmanned airstrike occurred in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. Initial indications are that we killed the target,” Captain Bill Urban of the US Central Command said in a statement. 2/5
“We know of no civilian casualties,” he added in a statement announcing the first reported US raid since the attack. 3/5

#US carried out a drone strike claiming "to have killed ISIS-Khorasan planner in eastern #Afghanistan." US also claim that this "planner was planning another attack". Unclear how US knew about this "planner" and identified him in less than 48 hours. No independent confirmation.
The #US is also claiming that this #ISIS-K was under surveillance before the attack.

Now, if he was under surveillance and known, why he was allowed to plan and carry out the attack? A failure in intelligence if, and a big IF, the information is correct?
The #Taliban offered another story saying: "A drone hit a house (not a vehicle like the #US is claiming) in Jalal Abad", without providing further information. #Afghanistan.

The number of victims at #Kabul attack rose to 90 of which 77 Afghans, among these children and women. Only 13 #US soldiers were killed. 150 were wounded. #Afghanistan.

28 of the #Taliban were killed in the attack at #Kabul airport yesterday. #Afghanistan.
Islamic State in Afghanistan calls itself the "Khorasan Welayat" (ISIS-K) claimed the responsibility: one suicide bomber got within 5 meters’ of #US troops, careless about the #Afghan civilians, always considered by ISIS-K as "collateral damage".

1. I have daily reported on the war against #Daesh fka #ISIS since the summer of 2014. I watched them on Turkish TV broadcasts interacting with Turkish TSK force members. They had near total control of Gaziantep reported that @CIA had to remove their people from there IMO
2. likely because Daesh was operating a #Yazidi child sex slave market in Gaziantep. IMO @CIA @StateDept @CENTCOM all know that Turkey is an ISIS al-Qaeda affiliate. We have even recently sanctioned persons connected with the al-Qaeda affiliate HTS in Idlib that is allied
3. with Turkey. Until we make an example of all nation states that support terrorism in all its forms, groups will continue to grow and be a threat the to US national security. Today as we watch this unfold Turkey's terrorists in Syria will attack our partnered force and we

1. In Northern #Syria members of al-#Qaeda and #Daesh fka #ISIS are embedded with #Turkish #TSK forces conducting daily attacks on US partner forces #SDF and civilians including #Kurds, #Ezidis and #Christians. IMO Turkey force is funded by #Qatar that with #Turkey and #Pakistan
2. forms a terrorist front that advances both ISIS and Al-Qaeda. Both Turkey and Qatar use the US bases and Pakistan uses US overflight as the way to keep our eyes averted to their terrorist affiliations. We will never be free of the FTO threat if we ignore state sponsors.
3. We need to give Turkey and Qatar 48 hours to disclose all their terrorist affiliations or @StateDept should list both as State Sponsors of Terror and block assets. This will never happen because both @StateDept and @CIA are fully infiltrated by Turkish intelligence service as

7 hours ago I warned of suicide attacks and hours later 40 people were killed and 125 wounded by what seems to be a suicide attack today at #Kabul airport where thousands of people gathered to leave the city.

It was expected because #ISIS wanted to register a big event and allow the media to talk about it. This is not bad because now the #Taliban will be hunting down merciless the "Islamic State" in Khorasan. Many Afghans were killed in the attack.
This is not a #Taliban's failure coz the group did not have the time to control the city that is still chaotic following the sudden #US evacuation. However, suicide attacks can be foiled only with counter-intelligence work. Neighbouring countries are coming forward to help.

I dati di @AOAV evidenziano come dal 2011 siano state oltre 14.700 le vittime civili di attacchi suicidi in #Afghanistan. Ben 378 nel solo 2021.

Da decenni gli afgani sperimentano "giorni drammatici": se i leader politici non inizieranno a rendersene conto non ci sarà soluzione.
Venti anni di guerra hanno da tempo messo l'#Afghanistan in una situazione devastante: secondo il @GlobPeaceIndex da quattro anni è il Paese meno in pace del mondo, ed è stato tra i tre luoghi meno pacifici dal 2010 in poi...
Secondo dati elaborati da @AOAV (organizzazione nostra partner che fa lavoro eccellente ma che di solito nessuno riprende...) dal 2011 al 2020 in #Afghanistan si sono registrati 49.039 morti e feriti per violenza esplosiva: ben 28.356 (cioè il 58%) erano civili

The #Taliban are not angels. However, be aware of suicide attacks, assassinations et al because the "Islamic State" #ISIS and the CIA are the two sides who benefit the most in destabilising #Afghanistan. /+
#ISIS management of savagery teaches the Takfiri group to push the society towards chaos. #Afghanistan is a very fertile ground for Chaos because the #Taliban didn't expect to control the country in such a short time. /+
Also, #ISIS considers the #Taliban as enemies to be eliminated, and vice versa. Therefore, now that the Taliban is in power, it is in ISIS's benefit to destabilise a non-stable state that lived for 40 years at war, is poor, corrupted, and lacks serious infrastructure. /+

US consular affairs issued a warning to Americans remaining in Afghanistan to avoid coming to #Kabul airport, and those there to “leave immediately.” This seems to be directly related to #ISIS, which is going to attempt to capitalize on chaos and hinder US exit.
Following last night's warning of an imminent threat, Pentagon has confirmed an explosion outside #KabulAiport. Casualties are not confirmed but Pentagon states there will be update.

From @BBCWorld, the explosion occurred at the Abbey gate entrance, and a US official told Reuters that the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber.

No group has claimed responsibility, but this bears the hallmarks of an #ISIS strike.

#Biden's decision to stick to the Aug 31 deadline is bold -- it raises 2 key risks:

1) We'll be leaving people behind, certainly 1,000s of #Afghans & quite likely, a few Americans in hard-to-reach spots.

2) Other G7/NATO states have been rebuffed again by #Biden -- more anger.
"#Biden's decision to pull out troops was backed by most Americans, 53%-38%. But almost two-thirds, 62%, disapproved of the way his administration has handled that withdrawal."

Overall approval rating now 41%.

New polling on #Afghanistan's impact:

BREAKING -- The US military has begun re-withdrawing from #Afghanistan, per US officials.

Very worrying sign for the 10,000s of those left behind - mostly #Americans, but some U.S. & European nationals too.

Aboe Maria al-Qahtani van HTS (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham), die onder bescherming van #Erdogan staat in Idlib, Noord-Syrië:
'We hebben de mogelijkheid om een islamitische as op te richten tussen #HTS, #Taliban, #Pakistan en #Turkije.'
Qahtani: 'HTS, Taliban, Pakistan en Turkije zetten in tegenstelling tot de Arabische seculiere regimes de islamitische politiek & jihad op hun verdiende plaats.'
Terwijl veel Arabieren afstand nemen van hun uitvinding de #islam, omarmen de Pashtun, Turken, Perzen, ... de islam.
Ze streven allemaal naar islamisering en een strenge shariastaat, maar #Taliban, #AlQaeda, #TTP (Pakistaanse Taliban), #Hamas, #Qatar, #MoslimBroederschap zitten in een concurrentiestrijd met #ISIS.
