Meet The New Afghanistan Government, It’s Filled With Radical Islamic Terrorists

President Biden and his Administration continue to showcase their weak and failed leadership when it comes to Afghanistan. They are now refusing to condemn Afghanistan’s new government, which is filled with radical Islamic terrorists.

Just days before the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, the Taliban announced that Sirajuddin Haqqani would be Afghanistan’s first minister of interior. This is nothing short of a slap in the face to the United States and our allies.

Haqqani is a U.S.-designated terrorist with close ties to al Qaeda, the group responsible for the 9/11 attacks that killed thousands of Americans. Unfortunately, Haqqani isn’t the only radical Islamic terrorist in Afghanistan’s new government.

MEET THE NEW AFGHANISTAN GOVERNMENT:

  • Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, one of the Taliban’s founders who is on a United Nations Security Council sanctions list, was named prime minister.

  • Sirajuddin Haqqani, the head of the Haqqani Network — a US-designated terror group in Pakistan and Afghanistan with close ties to al-Qaida — was named interior minister. He is currently on the FBI’s most-wanted list, and there is a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head.

    • The FBI’s most-wanted list says Haqqani is wanted for “questioning in connection with the January 2008 attack on a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed six people, including an American citizen.”

  • Four of the Guantanamo detainees whom former President Obama released in exchange for former U.S. Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl in 2014 now hold senior positions in Afghanistan’s government: Khairullah Khairkhwa, Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, and Mohammad Fazl.

    • On Tuesday, the Taliban announced that Khairkhwa would serve as acting minister for information and culture, Noori would serve as acting minister of borders and tribal affairs, Wasiq would serve as acting director of intelligence, and Fazl would serve as deputy defense minister.

    • Wasiq will reprise his role as the Taliban’s intelligence director, previously serving in the role prior to 9/11 terrorist attacks on America.

    • Thomas Joscelyn, a senior fellow for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), has noted that Fazl will also return to his role as deputy defense minister, stating, “U.S. officials found that Fazl worked with senior al Qaeda personnel, including Abdel Hadi al Iraqi, one of Osama bin Laden’s chief lieutenants.”

  • Despite the growing list of radical Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan’s new government, President Biden and his Administration have refused to condemn them.

    • When asked what makes the Biden Administration think the Taliban has somehow changed? National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said, “Well, it’s hard to put a label on it…In part because we have yet to see what they are going to be now that they’re in control.”

    • Other U.S. officials shockingly raised the possibility of coordinating with the Taliban to conduct counterterrorism strikes against ISIS-K.

It’s simple: The Biden administration must take immediate action and denounce the appointment of Sirajuddin Haqqani, refuse to recognize the new Taliban government, and prohibit aid to the Taliban from the U.S. or international financial organizations.
