The U.S. has helped make its enemy, the Islamic extremist Taliban who once harbored Osama bin Laden after 9/11, among the best-equipped military around.
That's according to an accounting by Republican Congressman Jim Banks.
- 75,000 vehicles
- 200+ airplanes and helicopters
- 600,000+ small arms and light weapons
- More U.S. black hawk helicopters than 85% of the nations in the world
- Night vision goggles
- Body armor
- Biometric devices containing info for all of the Afghans who helped U.S.
"If any of these weapons or this military equipment is used to harm, injure, or kill an American now or at any time in the future, the blood is on Joe Biden's hands." - @RepJimBanks on the many American weapons left in Afghanistan after Biden's botched withdrawal. pic.twitter.com/advCBXd551
