Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have scorched Joe Biden for handing over some $6 billion to Iran, which has promised to use it any way it wants.
While the money was supposed to go for humanitarian needs, cash is fungible and Iran is one of the largest sponsors of terrorism around the globe today.
It's already been implicated in Hamas' launch of a bloody war, already filled with atrocities, against Israel over the weekend. And Trump publicly warned it would be used for more terrorism.
But that's apparently not Joe Biden's only "sponsorship" of the violence that is promising to turn into a significant military conflict engulfing much of the Middle East.
There also are all those weapons – billions of dollars worth – that Biden left behind when he abruptly withdrew the American military from Afghanistan.
A report from Breitbart explained there's now new "significance" to reports that weaponry, from helicopters to howitzers, from Humvees to machine guns, found its way to Palestinian terrorists operating in the Gaza Strip.
The munitions were abandoned by Biden with the pullout of American troops. Instead of an organized withdrawal of men and military might from Afghanistan, Biden simply told soldiers to abandon their posts and come home.
The move left behind hundreds of Americans in the hands of the Taliban, thousands of locals who had worked for American interests, at risk, and tons, literally tons and tons and tons, of American military equipment in the hands of the Taliban, which has been busy selling it.
Breitbart said, "According to a Newsweek report published in June, an Israeli commander said some of the U.S. small arms seized in Afghanistan have already been observed in the hands of Palestinian groups operating in the Gaza Strip."
An Israeli commander interviewed by Newsweek said he was "very worried" that U.S. and Western-provided weapons to Ukraine could also end up in Hamas’ hands.
The commander, anonymously, said "the diversion of weapons, such as the Javelin shoulder-fired anti-tank missile system, was being monitored from paramilitary forces operating on both sides of the Russia-Ukraine war," according to Breitbart.
The Post Millennial said in its own report that an Israeli commander had confirmed U.S. small arms that were left behind during Biden’s "disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021 have found their way into the hands of Palestinian terror groups in the Gaza Strip."
The report explained, "Following the August 2021 U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, which saw 13 servicemembers killed, billions of dollars in U.S. weapons and equipment, including Black Hawk helicopters, fell into the hands of the Taliban. An Israeli commander told Newsweek that IDF has seen the weapons in us by terrorist organizations in Gaza."
Military experts at the time of Biden's pullout from Afghanistan expressed concern that those weapons eventually would end up being used against democracies like Israel.
Also, during President Donald Trump's term in office, American aid to Palestinians had been suspended, but Biden "restored" $235 million, "despite concerns that the money would fund terrorism," the report said.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said then, "I am deeply troubled by recent decisions from the Biden administration to turn a blind eye to behavior by the Palestinian Authority. In 2019, the Palestinian Authority provided $343 million to subsidize ‘Pay to Slay’ attacks where terrorists and their families receive cash rewards for attacking Israelis and Americans."
He charged Biden was "subsidizing" terror.
A Newsweek investigation only a few months ago revealed that some of the weapons abandoned by Biden could be reverse-engineered by Iran so that that rogue regime could reproduce them in numbers.
The report pointed out that another source confirmed a Russian transport dropped off cargo in Iran worth an estimated $100 million, "including Western weapons."
