Behind the Poll

Multiple news outlets reported that billions of dollars worth of military equipment was left behind when Biden hastily withdrew U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

The list of abandoned equipment includes 22,174 Humvee vehicles, nearly 1,000 armored vehicles, 64,363 machine guns, 42,000 pick-up trucks and SUVs, 358,530 assault rifles, 126,295 pistols, and nearly 200 artillery units.

The military also left a number of Blackhawk helicopters behind. “The Taliban now has more Black Hawk helicopters than 85% of the countries in the world,” Congressman Jim Banks said.
