The Biden Administration has issued orders for the remaining staffers at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul to destroy classified documents, equipment and even American flags.
Why American flags?
The Washington Post reports that the administration feared the flags “could be misused in propaganda efforts.”
“American officials here raced Friday to prepare for a Taliban takeover,” the Washington Post reported. “Inside the U.S. Embassy, diplomats began destroying classified documents and equipment on orders from embassy leadership.”
The White House seemed unprepared for how quickly the Taliban would advance on Kabul and how easily the Afghan military surrendered without even putting up a fight.
Now there is a mad scramble to evacuate Americans and other allies in Kabul.
“An internal memo, obtained by The Washington Post, implored staff to destroy sensitive materials using incinerators, disintegrators and “burn bins” present in the compound. The directive also called for the destruction of “embassy or agency logos, American flags, or items which could be misused in propaganda efforts,” the report stated.
Meanwhile, Diplomatic Security is preparing for a crisis, calling on volunteers with "High Threat, High Risk" experience for "24/7 operations supporting U.S. Embassy Kabul," per an internal memo I obtained.
