REPORT: US Military Left Over 7 Billion of Military Equipment for Taliban After Afghan Withdrawal

According to a new report, the US military left behind a shocking amount of military equipment during its chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021. The report claims the US left behind over 7 billion dollars of equipment, including 4 billion dollars worth of armored vehicles.

As Fox News reports:

The U.S. government left behind more than $7 billion in military equipment when it pulled out of Afghanistan during a chaotic and deadly withdrawal last year, an inspector general confirmed Tuesday.

A Defense Department inspector general report explained that the majority of the $7 billion left behind in equipment in the country consisted of tactical ground vehicles such as Humvees and mine-resistant MRAPS.

The Afghan military possessed a ground vehicle inventory worth about $4.12 billion when Kabul fell to the Taliban in mid-August 2021.

In addition to the ground vehicles, the U.S. military lost $923.3 million worth of military aircraft and $294.6 million in aircraft munitions.
