A recent move from Biden’s Pentagon indicated the administration has no plans to maintain Trump’s peace deal with the Taliban, ensuring 2,500 soldiers a safe return home.
The Pentagon’s top spokesman said the Biden administration has no plans to follow through with Trump’s peace deal, but is open to a renegotiation.
“We are heavily involved in an attempted resettlement of Trump’s original deal. The Taliban, unfortunately, is not on board with renegotiation. It’s very hard to see a specific path forward before the looming deadline in May.”
The spokesman added the new Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is hoping to find a logical end to this war without the danger of a swift pull-out.
He included that the top military brass stationed in Afghanistan agreed the 2,500 troops currently stationed in the Middle East is sufficient to fight the remaining ISIS terrorists in the region.
The Pentagon reiterated that Biden has not yet made any final decisions regarded the troop drawback.
U.S. troops have been stationed in the Middle East since terrorist leader Osama Bin Ladin ordered the attack on the World Trade Center towers in September of 2001.
The mission in Afghanistan was to destroy the Taliban regime that provided cover for Bin Ladin, and to prevent another terrorist attack from being planned in the country.
U.S. troops successfully completed their mission, but the goalpost was constantly pushed back by the war criminals in the Obama administration. Obama ordered thousands of troops to deploy in the years following the September terrorist attacks.
Obama left the presidency with nearly 9,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan and nearly the same amount of NATO soldiers. The Trump administration increased that presence to 14,000, but later ordered a drawback after a successful peace agreement with the Taliban.
The details of that peace agreement ordered the U.S. to draw down to zero troops by May 2021. In return, Taliban agreed to cease all attacks against the U.S. and its allies, and to end all harboring of all terrorists. The Biden administration claims it will reexamine the terms of the agreement, but chances are slim of a total troop drawback.
