After Taliban seizes US weapons in Afghanistan, GOP senator demands Biden face accountability

A Republican senator is demanding that President Biden hold somebody within his administration accountable after the Taliban seized a trove of U.S.-made arms, armored vehicles and military aircraft abandoned following the sudden collapse of Afghanistan’s military.

In a letter addressed to the White House, Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., called on Biden to launch an investigation after the Taliban captured a stockpile of modern military equipment after it toppled the U.S.-backed Afghan security forces.

“Taliban militants are now threatening innocent civilians and restricting evacuee movement using U.S. military equipment, which they obtained through a hasty withdrawal of U.S. forces,” Daines wrote.
