They didn't plan on the Afghan army falling like a house of cards.
Exactly the problem, as they were warned that was a very likely outcome.

I seen reports all over the place on this. Have you seen any reports he was told it would be days before the country fell?

Amazing how they all got out. Going to assume the Taliban had a hand in that happening.

Why not? Wasn't it inevitable and everyone knew it was going to happen?

Yes but not in days. The air-lift shows they were ready and capable to get everyone out. They miscalculated the time they had and that is on them.

So what was the point of propping them up for 20 years in the first place?

When you thought the Biden administration couldn't be any more incompetent and unfaithful.

They removed every bit of support, including civilian maintenance support, overnight. The Afghans had millions (billions?) of dollars worth of equipment that was completely useless.

I know there was a lot of talk about a hit list and it turned out to be a nothing burger. If anything it saved lives.

I am wondering if your statements are just repeating things in this thread. Taliban are driving around in all types of US equipment. Seems some of it was working just fine.

There was several lists. There were basically a manifest for those on buses, cars and other means to go through the Taliban check points. You call that a hit list?
