Pentagon spox admits THOUSANDS of ISIS-K prisoners were released from Bagram Air Base

The Pentagon admitted this morning that some number of ISIS-K prisoners in the thousands was released from Bagram Air Base when the Taliban took it over:

These are the very terrorists that bombed the airport yesterday, and we essentially let them go last month when we abandoned the air base in early July in the dead of night:

The U.S. left Afghanistan’s Bagram Airfield after nearly 20 years by shutting off the electricity and slipping away in the night without notifying the base’s new Afghan commander, who discovered the Americans’ departure more than two hours after they left, Afghan military officials said.

The U.S. announced Friday it had completely vacated its biggest airfield in the country in advance of a final withdrawal the Pentagon says will be completed by the end of August.

“We (heard) some rumor that the Americans had left Bagram … and finally by seven o’clock in the morning, we understood that it was confirmed that they had already left Bagram,” Gen. Mir Asadullah Kohistani, Bagram’s new commander said.

Kohistani insisted the Afghan National Security and Defense Force could hold on to the heavily fortified base despite a string of Taliban wins on the battlefield. The airfield also includes a prison with about 5,000 prisoners, many of them allegedly Taliban.

We abandoned 5,000 prisoners which were mostly Taliban or ISIS-K fighters without moving them to a different facility? Well no wonder they bombed us! Notice that Kirby didn’t bother answering the part of the above question as to why they didn’t move the prisoners.

I guess this was another ‘miscalculation’ by the Biden administration, pretending that the Afghan military could keep the base from the Taliban. What a cluster…you know.
