It's 7 Months Into Biden's First Term, and Nearly 8 Percent of Humvees Ever Made Are Lost in Taliban's Afghanistan
The Taliban inherited many American “gifts” amid their Afghanistan victory.
We’ve seen the images of Islamic militants holding U.S.-made rifles and posing beside our own Blackhawk helicopters left behind in the wake of a disastrous withdrawal.
We’ve also heard the speculation circling about — that with these “gifts,” the Taliban may have just toppled Vietnam as the 26th largest air force in the world.
But now, there’s a new stat to boggle our minds: The Taliban is now in possession of the American military equipment that was gifted to Afghan security forces during the two-decade U.S. mission in the country, ABC reported on last week.
That number was 22,000 Humvees over the years, according to ABC, but the cited a Government Accountability Office report from 2017, covering the years 2004 to 2016, so the actual number is likely higher.
