In the wake of the Taliban recent capture from Kabul, the Afghan capital, looks like Republican Party discreetly cleans up the traces of the former president’s agreements with the militant Islamist group.

The GOP has removed a webpage praising Donald Trump for “his administration’s historic peace deal with the Taliban.” The page, which has been archived here, was first put in place in the middle of last year’s presidential election.

“Trump continued to lead the peace talks by signing a historic peace deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan that would end America’s longest war,” the now-deleted page read. He also noted that if the now ex-president “defended peace”, Joe Biden had pushed “endless wars”. Elsewhere on the page, the GOP noted that Trump had “taken steps to defeat ISIS and eliminate dangerous leaders.”

It should be noted here that Abdul Ghani Baradar, who co-founded the Taliban in Afghanistan and became the organization’s first leader political leader, was released from Pakistani U.S.Trump asks while Trump was in power.

Despite Trump bombastic reviews of Biden’s withdrawal from U.S. troops from Afghanistan, it is in fact the Trump administration that initiated talks to remove U.S. forces in the region — a movement majority of Americans supported. On the now-deleted webpage, the GOP notes that on February 2, 2020, the Trump administration sighed a “preliminary peace deal” with the Taliban that “sets the stage” to end the United States.S.-The Afghan war that has been raging since more than two decades.

The web page notes that tThe Trump administration had negotiated a deal that would see “nearly 5,000” U.S. troops withdrew from the region in exchange for “a Taliban deal banning Afghanistan from being used for transnational terrorism.”

As others have underline, these peace talks negotiated under Trump’s surveillance imposed relatively few conditions on the Taliban upon signing – and the military the organization does not violate any of them at this time, despite the chaos underway in Kabul, where countless Afghans try to flee the country now controlled through religious fundamentalist activists.

Biden, for his part, has forbidden his own withdrawal tactics, claiming that he had little choice in the wake of the The Trump administration’s previous deals with the Taliban, although many are blame the current president for the disastrous Withdrawal American troops.

“When I came to power, I inherited a deal made by my predecessor – which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of September 11, 2019 – that left the Taliban in the most militarily strong since 2001, “he said. said in A declaration Saturday.

“When I became president, I was faced with a choice: to follow through on the agreement … or step up our presence and send more US troops to fight again in another country’s civil conflict.
