U.S. Diplomats Told To Burn Flags, Shred Documents Before Taliban Arrive In Kabul

Reports coming out of Afghanistan throughout the weekend have documented the incoming Taliban armed forces looking to overtake the capital of Kabul. The siege will make way for the terrorist armed forces to establish dominion over Afghanistan once again.

Located in the city of Kabul is the U.S. Embassy, which was forced to evacuate American officials once U.S. intelligence groups estimated that the Taliban would complete their operation by Sunday.

A report from Stars and Stripes noted that United States diplomats, in their final moments leading up to emergency evacuation, were instructed to shred documents containing private intel, and burn American flags to hide any symbols of U.S. propaganda from the insurgents attacking Kabul.

The appalling timeline of events out of Kabul in the past three days has led to waves of citizens fleeing Afghanistan out of Hamid Karzai International Airport. Meanwhile, civilians without the option to evacuate brace for Taliban arrival and plan to surrender rather than put up a fight against the vicious militia.

President Biden and the Pentagon reportedly reached out to the Taliban before they advanced into Kabul, pleading with the terrorist group to halt their operations until U.S. officials were allowed to board their flights out of the city.

Thousands of American troops were sent to safely escort the U.S. officials from Kabul in helicopters for expedited evacuation, suggesting that the Taliban had dismissed the United States' plea for more time.

Headlines coming out of Kabul early Sunday confirmed that the terrorist forces infiltrated the Presidential Palace of Afghanistan, laying the foundation for a once-defeated overseas opponent to re-enter the discussion of international conflict.

Per the Reuters report, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani left Kabul on Sunday, fearing potential "bloodshed" at the hands of Taliban soldiers.

A Taliban spokesman said the following regarding the seige of Kabul:

"Today is a great day for the Afghan people and the mujahideen. They have witnessed the fruits of their efforts and their sacrifices for 20 years. Thanks to God, the war is over in the country."

President Ghani stated on Saturday that the United States' withdrawal from Kabul was the final domino to fall before the terrorist armed forces re-captured the capital city.

The Taliban have declared their intention to reshape the newly claimed land into the "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan."
