Democrat Joe Biden's administration has ordered US embassy staff in Kabul, Afghanistan, to destroy all American flags before fleeing so as not to anger Taliban terrorists as they seize control of the capital.

Following Biden's mishandling of the end of a two-decade-long occupation of Afghanistan, the Taliban has rapidly reemerged in several cities and taken back control of the country.

The disastrous situation has forced Biden to send in troops to help evacuate American diplomats and other civilians from the country.

Biden previously boasted that “the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy expressed “deep concerns” with what he calls Biden's “bungled withdrawal.”

He compared the ongoing situation to the “failed withdrawal” from Iraq.

“It is an embarrassment to our nation,” McCarthy tweeted.

When pressed on reaching a “negotiated political settlement” in Afghanistan, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the Taliban “has to make an assessment on what they want their role to be in the international community.”


The acceleration of the “unconditional withdrawal” from Afghanistan, initially scheduled for the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that prompted military intervention, came amid steady Taliban retrenchment throughout the fragile country as the group captures key cities with little resistance.

Per an internal memo obtained by the Washington Post, the US Embassy in Kabul has reportedly been instructed to “destroy items which could be misused in propaganda efforts,” including American flags.

“Facilities will provide destruction support between 0830 and 1600 daily until further notice, please take advantage and reduce the amount of sensitive material on the property,” the memo stated.

“Please also include items with embassy or agency logos, American flags, or items which could be misused in propaganda efforts.”
