We have the lie of 100,000 people successfully evacuated from Afghanistan. We have the lie of only 240-250 Americans left behind when there are thousands. We have the lie of the 90,000 they will bring into the country in lieu of the 90,000 they failed to rescue.Anonymous Intelligence Veteran
The following article was submitted to me two days ago by an anonymous intelligence veteran involved in the Afghanistan airlift. After fifteen days in the belly of the beast, seeing how everything was organized/disorganized and reorganized, our source begin to catch a definite smell. – J.R. Nyquist
What I Saw: By Anonymous
A massive betrayal has occurred, and that betrayal is being covered up. A network of well-connected and highly trained American veterans – with expertise that ranges from intelligence gathering to on-the-ground operations – have eyes on what’s happening in Afghanistan. What they see bears no resemblance to what Americans are being told by the media. American veterans, who know what is happening in Afghanistan, are disgusted by the many lies that are officially being told.
In fact, virtually everything you are hearing about Afghanistan from government sources is a fabrication. And even partisan opponents of the current administration are missing the mark. What we are seeing is not “chaos” or “incompetence’; rather, it has all the markings of a deliberate and preplanned operation to purposely eliminate witnesses to the criminal malfeasance of ranking U.S. officials.
It has become evident that there is a plan to intentionally abandon American-connected high-value assets that have intimate knowledge of our operations in Afghanistan over the last 20 years. If all goes according to plan, within 72 hours (probably less) the last U.S. transports will depart Kabul. The Taliban will then cut off all communications – cell phones, radios, internet. When that happens there will be no meaningful news coverage. At that point the Taliban will begin the extermination of America’s friends on the ground. This will include their children, even their casual acquaintances.
Veterans of the Afghan war have many good reasons to fear that the Biden Administration wanted such an outcome from the start. And for the past thirteen days, these veterans have been working nonstop to extract as many Taliban targets as possible. But, in the course of those thirteen days, we have again and again butted up against the inescapable conclusion that the U.S. government has no intention of preventing the annihilation of the witnesses – our allies, our Afghan friends. In fact, the Taliban’s planned massacre may be part of a U.S. Government coverup.
Our Veterans are monitoring the situation on the ground in Kabul in real-time, and while Americans back home listen to reports of thousands evacuated and rescued, the veterans look at the data and shake their heads. The American public is not told the truth. Not only are ordinary working men and women, who filled Afghanistan’s American-entangled workforce now stranded, we are even seeing high value assets – people especially important to America – being denied the ability to get on a plane to salvation.
These are people whom we know to be on a Taliban hunt-list. Some of them have worked closely with the DOD, DEA, FBI, NSA, and even the CIA. These are people who have helped us capture dangerous terrorists, and they are now betrayed. More importantly, our veterans have demanded that something be done for these longtime allies. Our veterans have begged for the lives of these steadfast allies in meetings with high-level officials of the U.S. Government; but the U.S Government is refusing all help.
Our veterans have had direct contact with senior members of Congress. When they shared direct information about the situation on the ground, these congressmen and senators have been shocked. The briefings they are receiving from the Executive Branch directly contradict the facts on the ground. Take two Taliban targets in particular. Our veterans know exactly what they did for us before the Taliban takeover. Our veterans know these allies are on the run. And our veterans know for a fact that the State Department and White House – who are fully informed of the situation – are blocking these allies from getting to safety.
These same officials know that our abandoned Afghan allies will be murdered, mere days from now, when we leave them behind. In fact, we know the names of those who are presently stranded. We know the names and numbers of those who have risked their lives in our common cause. Our veterans have struggled through incredibly risky operations to extract some of these people. But we have only been able to rescue a few, while many are left behind to die.
For the veterans of this war, this is not only about the public being duped by White House pressers. We are seeing disinformation appear in the press about allegedly successful nonprofit rescue operations funded by generous American millionaires. One NGO raised millions to rescue people stranded in Kabul. A week later, the organization reported having saved several thousand Christians and other minorities; but it did not happen.
The author of this report personally knows the CEO of that non-profit. He is an honest and good man who is not intentionally lying. It is doubtful that anyone on his staff is lying, either. Yet someone is lying, someone at the heart of the government-surveilled center of this unfolding catastrophe. And so, in the coming weeks, falsehoods like these could cost untold numbers of innocent lives.
You, the American people, are being deceived. Why? We may never know all the reasons. One possibility is that we are witnessing a highly sophisticated operation in which the Taliban’s purge of America’s “loose ends” plays an integral part. Another factor at play is the tendency of the American people to know injustice when they see it, and to demand accountability for wrongdoings, even if that wrongdoing was committed against foreign peoples with whom they have no connection but a shared humanity.
In the Cold War era, Pol Pot’s Communist regime slaughtered as many as 3 million civilians associated with the outgoing regime, including Christians, Buddhists, and other minorities. The “killing fields” of Cambodia cut America to the quick, and hatred of oppression and authoritarianism became dominant themes in our journalism, art, and entertainment in the years that followed.
In Afghanistan, we stand at the brink of another historic travesty, and America deserves to know what happened.
