I guess they needed to have an expert on giving away weapons to foreign terrorists.

Staffer got a little too litteral

Speaking of bloviating, performative bullshiat... Doesn't Ollie look tired?

They're Afghanistan's weapons. They weren't left behind. They're still there.

He really doesn't understand what is happening there.
 
2021-09-12 9:03:54 PM  
You guys aren't getting it.

He's not upset about Afghanistan having US weapons, it's that the CIA didn't use the proceeds of the sales to buy cocaine for sale in American cities.

I swear that they're just trolling when they do s*** like this. They have to realize how ridiculous that looks.

Clearly we should have traded those weapons for hostages.

Of course, East of Iraq the United States should only give weapons to Shi'ites and not Sunni muslims.  Iraq and points West it's the other way around.  Except when it isn't.

You're assuming they actually reflect on what they're doing and how they're perceived by anyone other than their base.

All I'm saying is this: Given enough steam, starch and iron, I can lay down as seam like you've never seen.

People in prison yards talk sh*t about "cutting b*tches", but I ain't got no time for that sh*t -- I will iron your funky ass, and you will look good by the time I'm done with you.

We spent decades propping up a government, presumably with the understanding that we would one day leave and they would continue on their own.

Wtf were we supposed to do, take all our supplies back from the Afghan military before we left?

The people who peddle this garbage and the mouth breathers who slop it up are all farking morons.

This is the dumbest talking point ever there was nothing left behind that couldn't be wiped out in 20 minutes by air strikes. Oh no they have some MRAPS and M-16s!!! They are now unstoppable!!! The other gear like night vision they didn't have before is the same sort of stuff they won't be able to keep operating because they will need to find a supplier with a proper export permit to ship parts to them. There are civilian rifle scopes I can't get parts for in Canada from the U.S so I doubt the Taliban is going to find somebody willing to ship them military grade night vision and scope parts. It's all a whole lot of nothing.

"When you look at that cache that we gave to the Taliban and it's not just the Taliban," North added. "It's ISIS, it's Al Qaeda, it's the Haqqani organization, they are all one."


So he thinks all brown people are the same???

I don't think ISIS and the Taliban are "the same".

They know this. It's all just coming up with BS to be outraged about.

It's like the "13 dead" when almost every other year more Americans died in Afghanistan that no one gave a shiat about.

Selling missiles to our worst enemy and using the proceeds to hire thugs to start a civil war in a small Central American country.
Reagan should have been impeached and Ollie should have rotted in prison. Bill Barr helped cover it up.

He'd look better if he was wearing a cell at Leavenworth or a noose.
Ollie is lucky that hangings fell out of fashion by the time he went to trial.

Military grade usually means lowest bidder but when it comes to night vision optics the U.S government definitely distinguishes between civilian and military.

The bit at the end of the article is one hell of a bombshell, but nobody seems to have really grasped it. They all focus on "Biden left $84 billion of our military stuff there!" And the rubes eat it up without question because no one mentions the other half. Hell, I got to hear two otherwise pleasant people biatch and whine about how we just handed over all those tanks and guns and gear when the US military left. I tried mentioning that it's all unusable, but they would hear none of it.

And I just sat there thinking "Yeah, the Taliban might have a bunch of our rifles, but they're no good without firing pins or triggers, are they?" Did the military leave behind a bunch of stuff? Yes. They likely realized that airlifting everything out of the country would cost a lot of time and cargo space that was better spent getting our people and friendlies out, so the next best option was, essentially, thermite.

Star Trek, oddly enough, taught me way back when that if you take out a few key components, no matter how small they seem, then a brand-new starship will just sit there adrift. (Thank you Scotty and Star Trek III!)

That little thing stood out so much! As soon as I pressed the 'comment' button I was like: wtf?

Whatever. Call me your "prison yard ironing person". Envision an Oscar-winning scene of all of us here lifting weights, and then the camera pans-in on me -- I'm Marlon Brando standing over an ironing board, nodding & approving with a cigarette dangling from my mouth.

And all the sudden, someone comes up from behind and asks me to do pleats. I turn around dramatically (with the Francis Ford Coppola lighting) and exclaim: "Pleats? We don't do pleats."

The crowd nervously laughs, and later on Al Pacino quietly takes the interloper out behind the wall and takes care of him.

Nobody makes typos here, and nobody wears pleats.

They do.  It's a flex.

Some of their viewers don't, but they don't much care, either way.

Technicalities.  Judge agreed his congressional testimony may have influenced testimony in his court case.

And of course, everyone else got pardoned.  It's the Republican way.
