Thanks to President Joe Biden, the Taliban is now rewarding the families of the suicide bombers with land who killed 13 U.S. service members. The Biden administration once praised the Taliban as “businesslike and professional.”
“Addressing the gathering Monday evening, [Sirajuddin Haqqani] praised the sacrifices of ‘martyrs and fedayeen,’ referring to fighters killed in suicide attacks,” The Associated Press reported. “Haqqani called them ‘heroes of Islam and the country,’ according to [Interior Ministry spokesman Saeed Khosty]. At the end of the meeting, he distributed 10,000 afghanis ($112) per family and promised each a plot of land.”
To make matters worse, the Biden administration is actively funding the Taliban considering they handed them over millions of dollars in “humanitarian aid” last week.
“The U.S. has agreed to provide humanitarian aid to a desperately poor Afghanistan on the brink of an economic disaster, while refusing to give political recognition to the country’s new Taliban rulers,” a separate AP report stated. “The statement came at the end of the first direct talks between the former foes since the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops at the end of August.”
In a statement, State Department Spokesman Ned Price asserted that the U.S. delegation “focused on security and terrorism concerns and safe passage for U.S. citizens, other foreign nationals and our Afghan partners, as well as on human rights, including the meaningful participation of women and girls in all aspects of Afghan society.”
