As we saw with the Obama Administration’s failure in Benghazi, Libya, the U.S. Department of State appears to be complicit in creating catastrophe and chaos in Afghanistan…

Even though Afghanistan was a NATO mission, it appears that the decision to withdraw precipitously was taken without any consultation with our NATO allies.  Leading me to believe that this was a State Department operation directed by the Obamacons in the White House.

Even while U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, claims that he lacks the resources to safeguard and retrieve Americans and their Afghan employees trapped behind enemy lines, the British and French are sending in their special forces to retrieve and transport their citizens and contractors.

Even while mainstream media propagandists ignore credible reports of beheadings, eye-gouging, maiming, torture, people being burned alive, women and children being raped, and families being killed, they suggest that this Taliban is unlike the old Taliban who operated under strict Sharia law.


Internal State Department Cable Warned of Kabul Collapse

July memo shows that administration officials were cautioned about Taliban’s quick advance

An internal State Department memo last month warned top agency officials of the potential collapse of Kabul soon after the U.S.’s Aug. 31 troop withdrawal deadline in Afghanistan, according to a U.S. official and a person familiar with the document.

The classified cable represents the clearest evidence yet that the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the Taliban’s advance was imminent and Afghanistan’s military may be unable to stop it.

The cable, sent via the State Department’s confidential dissent channel, warned of rapid territorial gains by the Taliban and the subsequent collapse of Afghan security forces, and offered recommendations on ways to mitigate the crisis and speed up an evacuation, the two people said.

The cable, dated July 13, also called for the State Department to use tougher language in describing the atrocities being committed by the Taliban, one of the people said.

In all, 23 U.S. Embassy staffers, all Americans, signed the July 13 cable, the two people said. The U.S. official said there was a rush to deliver it, given circumstances on the ground in Kabul.

The cable was sent to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Director of Policy Planning Salman Ahmed. Mr. Blinken received the cable and reviewed it shortly after receipt, according to the person familiar with the exchange, who added that contingency planning was already under way when it was received, and that Mr. Blinken welcomed their feedback. <Source>

The crisis response team was defunded…

Joe Biden’s State Dept. Halted A Trump-Era ‘Crisis Response’ Plan Aimed At Avoiding Benghazi-Style Evacuations Just MONTHS Before Taliban Takeover.

The “Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau” – which was designed to handle medical, diplomatic, and logistical support concerning Americans overseas was paused by Antony Blinken’s State Department earlier this year. Notification was officially signed just months before the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan.

The document is dated June 11, 2021, though The National Pulse understands the decision to pause the program may have come as early as February, both undermining the original Trump-era date for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, and certainly giving the Taliban time to threaten American assets and lives on the run up to Joe Biden’s September 11th date of withdrawal.

The subject line reads: “(SBU) Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau,” and the body of the document recommends:

“That you direct the discontinuation of the establishment, and termination of, the Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau (CCR), and direct a further review of certain associated Department requirements and capabilities.”

It goes on:

“That you direct the discontinuation of the establishment, and termination of, CCR, consistent with the applicable legal requirements, necessary stakeholder engagement, and any applicable changes to the Foreign Affairs Manual and other requirements.”

In a lengthy article in Vanity Fair from May 2021, the Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau (CCR) – also referred to in overlap with a predecessor/partner bureau called “OpMed” is described as a “little-known team of medics and miracle workers—hidden deep within the U.S. Department of State.”

“Even before COVID reared its head, OpMed was finding ways to do all sorts of things, serving as the hidden hand behind daring and often dangerous operations to rescue Americans from peril abroad,” the article states, before going on to quote Secretary of State Tony Blinken on the importance of the program’s goals.

“The Bureau of Medical Services’ Directorate of Operation—or ‘OpMed,’ as we call it—is a lifeline for the Department of State and the American people… Though perhaps lesser known outside of the Department, it’s vital to our operations. That’s because OpMed provides the platform and personnel to save American lives around the world, especially in times of crisis. During the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, OpMed was integral to our evacuation and repatriation of 100,000 Americans to the United States as countries began locking down their borders.”

But The National Pulse understands that career officials inside the State Department objected to the Trump-era aim of creating a Contingency and Crisis Response bureau with the express purpose of avoiding a future Benghazi-style situation for Americans overseas.

Instead, Biden’s team revoked the funding and the approval for the plan, even as the COVID-19 crisis reasserted itself, and Afghanistan withdrawal loomed. <Source>

What plan?


Conspiracy theory?

As we have seen over the past decade, many of the events derided by the Administration or its mainstream media propagandists as “conspiracy theories” were, in actuality, true as well as worse and more extensive than originally thought. Like Benghazi, Libya, where Americans in extremis were actively ignored by the Administration to hide an illegal joint State Department/CIA operation to supply military-grade weapons to al Qaida terrorists who promised to fight Syria’s Assad regime.

Considering the deep infiltration of the State Department by the Russians, Communist Chinese, and America-hating Obamacon, is it not reasonable that we might investigate the possibility that the Afghanistan debacle was staged – both as a distraction from the criminality and failures of the Biden Administration and its demonstrably incapacitated leadership and to convey an advantage to our enemies (China, Iran, and Russia) while weakening America and its military?

And that the power behind the throne might be Obamacon Susan Rice, Director of the United States Domestic Policy Council (a position that does not require Senate Confirmation)? She served as President Obama’s National Security Advisor with her Deputy National Security Advisor Antony Blinken – now the Secretary of State.

For those who do not remember then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, she was the Obama Administration’s spokesperson who went on all Sunday news programs the same day and lied to the American public. Although the facts were known at the time and there was a real-time feed to the White House, Rice declared…

“But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous -- not a premeditated -- response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.

We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to -- or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo. And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that as you know in -- in the wake of the revolution in Libya are -- are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there.”

Or, more currently, Rice was complicit in the unmasking of the identities of senior Trump officials to facilitate the Obama Administration’s domestic spying on Donald Trump’s campaign.

Rice has gone from claiming to have had no knowledge of Obama administration monitoring of Flynn and other Trump associates, to claiming no knowledge of any unmaskings of Trump associates, to admitting she was complicit in the unmaskings, to — now — a call for the recorded conversation between retired general Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak to be released because it would purportedly show that the Obama administration had good reason to be concerned about Flynn. <Source>

Not to forget, her infamous “cover Obama’s ass” memo written to herself…

Rice sent the Jan. 20, 12:15 p.m., note (recently declassified) to herself at literally the last minute: President Trump was sworn in at noon that day; her administration was headed out the door.

The point? Ostensibly, to memorialize the meeting with her, Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI boss James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, following a briefing on Russian hacking.

Obama, the memo claims, stressed that “every aspect of this issue” be handled “by the book” and then “reiterated” that law enforcement proceed “by the book.” Comey “affirmed” he’s “proceeding ‘by the book.’ ” That’s right: She used the term three times. The Obama folks knew full well by then that the FBI had found zero evidence of collusion or of Flynn betraying his country. Because they were listening in on his phone calls to foreign officials.<Source>

Rice cannot be trusted to do anything but Obama’s bidding…

Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice did not get along because Rice refused to abide by the State Department’s chain of command. There were many reasons for tension between then–secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Rice, who at that time was U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Rice had been a close adviser to Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign, when Clinton ran against him. Obama gave Clinton the post of secretary of state, but the two were not close. Rice, on the other hand, received the plum job of ambassador to the U.N., maintained her close relationship with Obama, and was given cabinet rank equal to that of Clinton. Rice’s tendency to go around Clinton and the State bureaucracy to work directly with the White House caused considerable tension with the secretary of state and her staff. A State Department officer who worked with Rice in the 1990s told me that the relationship between Clinton and Rice and their staffs was “poisonous.” <Source>

Rice is known to be very influential with Biden and was once under consideration as a Vice Presidential candidate.

Bottom line…

With American lives at risk, we have two choices: pay off the Taliban and hope for the best or send in overwhelming military force -- leaving by bombing all main facilities and weapons canches.

Something malignant and nefarious has appeared in the Executive Branch of government. Facilitated by a complicit Congress dominated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. And ignored by a feckless Supreme Court headed by John Roberts.

The shit has hit the fan, and there are no leaders present, only self-serving politicians advancing an un-American ideological agenda affecting foreign and domestic affairs.

No wonder the Administration is targeting domestic extremists who might object to the slow-moving takeover of the United States by our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

We are so screwed. Possibly beyond the point of recovery without mass public protests and a major regime change in 2022 through the defeat of the Democrats in the mid-term elections.
