The Biden administration is reversing course in Afghanistan.
Biden appears to have shown very poor judgment by preemptively pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan, creating a catastrophic situation in the region.
The safety of American citizens and Afghan interpreters at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul has been very seriously compromised.
Now the Pentagon is scrambling to send 3,000 troops back into Afghanistan.
The Associated Press reported, “Afghan government forces are collapsing even faster than U.S. military leaders thought possible just a few months ago when President Joe Biden ordered a full withdrawal.”
“The Taliban, who ruled the country from 1996 until U.S. forces invaded after the 9/11 attacks, captured three more provincial capitals Wednesday and two on Thursday, the 10th and 11th the insurgents have taken in a weeklong sweep that has given them effective control of about two-thirds of the country,” the report adds.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announced that three battalions — one from the Army and two from the Marines — will enter Afghanistan.
This will take place over the next 48 hours to assist with security at the Kabul airport.
A brigade of 4,000 Army soldiers is also being sent to Kuwait to be on standby if more troops are needed.
Q: "How serious was the corruption among the Afghanistan Government to this mission failed there?"
Biden: "First of all the mission hasn't failed. Yet … The likelihood there's going to be a Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely" pic.twitter.com/O9oa4lRUle

More from Daily Wire:
Biden stated last month that it was “not inevitable” that the Taliban would take over the country once the U.S. left. Biden further claimed that “the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”
Robert Gates, who served as defense secretary for the Obama administration, previously warned that Democrat President Joe Biden had “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan urged all Americans to immediately evacuate from Afghanistan, saying in a statement earlier in the day:
President Biden approved the plan to send in U.S. troops to Afghanistan to facilitate the withdrawal of American diplomats at a meeting this morning with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and national security adviser Jake Sullivan, per source.

The U.S. Embassy urges U.S. citizens to leave Afghanistan immediately using available commercial flight options. … The U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens that on April 27, 2021, the Department of State ordered the departure from U.S. Embassy Kabul of U.S. government employees whose functions can be performed elsewhere due to increasing violence and threat reports in Kabul. The Travel Advisory for Afghanistan remains Level 4-Do Not Travel due to crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, armed conflict, and COVID-19. Domestic flights and ground transportation routes outside of Kabul are severely limited and subject to cancellation or closure.
Reuters later reported that “Biden approved the plan to send in U.S. troops to Afghanistan to facilitate the withdrawal of American diplomats at a meeting this morning with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and national security adviser Jake Sullivan.”
