The Taliban is currently mocking the American troops that were killed in Kabul thanks to President Joe Biden’s incompetence.
In a now viral video, the Taliban appeared to be taunting the United States by holding a mock funeral with the American flag draped over a coffin.

Check out what The Daily Caller reported:
Taliban supporters held mock funerals Tuesday in the city of Khost, holding up coffins draped with American, NATO, and several European countries’ flags as they celebrated the end of the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.
Videos of the event were shared across social media, showing Taliban supporters holding up guns and Taliban flags as the coffins were marched through the crowd. Many people recorded the event on their phones.
“Aug. 31 is our formal Freedom Day. On this day, American occupying forces and NATO forces fled the country,” Taliban member Qari Saeed Khosti told Afghan media outlet Zhman TV during the funeral, according to Reuters.
Biden’s failed withdraw of Afghanistan has been a total embarrassment for the United States as more footage and information comes in. It did not have to be this way.
According to a new report, the United States turned down an offer from the Taliban to take full control of Kabul, allowing thousands of U.S. citizens, allies and others to evacuate.
The report from the Washington Post alleges that the Taliban offered President Joe Biden to take over the city as they remained outside until the withdraw deadline of August 31st came. The U.S. denied the offer, allowing the Taliban to storm in and take control of Kabul.
The Washington Post reported:
In a hastily arranged in-person meeting, senior U.S. military leaders in Doha — including McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command — spoke with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban’s political wing.
“We have a problem,” Baradar said, according to the U.S. official. “We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.”
Throughout the day, Biden had remained resolute in his decision to withdraw all American troops from Afghanistan. The collapse of the Afghan government hadn’t changed his mind.
McKenzie, aware of those orders, told Baradar that the U.S. mission was only to evacuate American citizens, Afghan allies and others at risk. The United States, he told Baradar, needed the airport to do that.
On the spot, an understanding was reached, according to two other U.S. officials: The United States could have the airport until Aug. 31. But the Taliban would control the city.
The development shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone considering President Joe Biden is quickly proving to be the most incompetent president in U.S. history.
