Just when you may have been starting to get over your anger over the loss of 13 U.S. service personnel last week during Joe Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal comes word that it very likely could have been prevented.
Not as in, ‘If his plan was better and he had listened to the Pentagon, they’d be alive’ kind of prevention.
As in, the bomber could have been literally taken out by a U.S. drone operator before detonating his device but was not allowed to shoot.
Univision aired a bombshell allegation in the midst of its coverage of the United States’ disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal. Per former Army Green Beret and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Roger Pardo-Maurer, the Department of Defense had knowledge of the homicide bomber at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, and scrambled a Predator drone only to order it to stand down as it locked on its target. Per Pardo-Maurer, the stand-down order was given in deference to negotiations with the Taliban.
Pardo-Maurer recounted: “What is being said by people who were involved is that the Department of Defense already knew who the bomber was, and when (the Kabul attack would happen), and that a Predator drone had a lock on him, OK, and that they refused to grant permission to fire upon that bomber. (Permission) was requested, and was denied. Why? Because we are in this process of negotiating with the Taliban, who aren’t even in control of their own government or their own people.”
If this is true, then obviously someone higher up made the decision not to allow the drone operator to shoot.
The question is…why? And who made the call?
There are so many acts of treason involved in Biden’s pull-out debacle, not the least of which is the fact that he actually left Americans there while allowing tens of thousands of Afghanis to be evacuated.
This would only add to those acts.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
