A former CIA officer is blasting the Biden administration after its chaotic, deadly pullout from Afghanistan, calling governing elites “trash” and claiming that U.S. competitors and enemies are going to be emboldened to the point where the world becomes more dangerous.
“Former US intelligence colleagues are angry and deeply worried at what has happened in Afghanistan,” Bryan Dean Wright stated to begin a lengthy Twitter threat.
“Here’s what I’m hearing, and why there’s nearly universal belief that America and the world are in for one of the most dangerous, unpredictable times in modern history,” he wrote.

“Afghanistan has shown the world — enemies & allies alike — that our military & intel assets are largely irrelevant because we can’t deploy them successfully,” he added.
“The blame lays at the feet of multiple Presidents. The Generals. The Spies. The Congress. America’s Elites are trash,” Wright wrote, going on to predict that China and Russia will now become more aggressive.

“China knows it. They will become emboldened, covertly & overtly. War over Taiwan and contested islands in the S. China Sea and E. China Sea is now more likely. Russia will consider similar covert & overt moves, focused on Crimea, & former Soviet satellites,” wrote the former CIA officer.
He went on to report that Russia and China could team up to achieve their strategic objectives.
“The fear is that China & Russia will act in concert. Why? America was whipped by a tiny rebel force and couldn’t even retreat properly,” Wright continued.
“Meanwhile, the American people are angry, COVID weary, & divided. If there were ever a time to push American hegemony aside, this is it.”
“If Cold War III grows hot, America will need to quickly build up & work with foreign counterparts,” Wright continued.
“But who will trust America after Afghanistan? Who believes we have the leadership to use our military might well? Who will trust us when we say ‘We Will Stand With You’?” he went on.
Wright then predicted that lesser powers will also begin testing the Biden administration.
“Beyond China/Russia, others will take gambles too. Terror orgs like al-Qa’ida & ISIS are degraded but not dead,” Wright said.
“Their ideology is very much alive. Iran’s Hizballah — with terror cells throughout the US — may see an opening to create chaos too,” he noted, adding that Biden’s Afghanistan debacle is “just the beginning.”
“Meanwhile, the disaster inside Afghanistan is only just beginning. The Taliban will launch a terror campaign against American collaborators,” the CIA vet wrote.
“The pictures will shock the conscience of the world, further degrading American moral authority. Biden & Co will struggle to respond.”
Wright also blasted the Biden administration over the fact that tons of U.S. weaponry supplied to the now-disintegrated Afghan National Army is in Taliban hands.
“There’s also the nightmare of tactical weaponry now awash in Afghanistan, in the hands of the Taliban and — soon — on the global black market,” Wright predicted.
“These arms will fuel chaos around the world for decades. The Pentagon has no idea where this stuff is and no plans to destroy it,” he said.
Leadership could come from a state Governor, it's true, but not soon enough.
The above threats by China, Russia, & Co will metastasize well before the 2024 elections, and even a heroic new President will need years to clean things up.
Again, our enemies and allies know this.

Wright then proceeded to rip current American leaders and predicted that the situations he outlined will “metasticize” long before the 2024 elections.
“Grave dangers lie ahead, some predictable, others unimaginable. Keep your loved ones tight. Pray. And vote for change,” Wright concluded.
