US Army Major General Hank Taylor
The Pentagon on Monday can’t say if it has plans to keep US weapons and munitions out of the Taliban’s hands.
A reporter asked US Army Major General Hank Taylor, a logistics specialist on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, if the US is taking action to destroy weapons, vehicles and munitions left behind so the Taliban doesn’t use or sell the war material.
“So there’s no US actions being taken to prevent equipment from falling into the hands of the Taliban by destroying it or anything else?” a reporter asked.
“I don’t have the answer to that question.” General Hank Taylor said.

Meanwhile the Taliban is amassing a huge cache of weapons and taking helicopter rides over Afghanistan.
Joe Biden said the Taliban had no air force.
Now they do.
