Washington: Was US President Joe Biden warned about the likelihood of the Taliban taking over Afghanistan? Recent reports say so.

According to the reports, US intel agencies had warned the president of the likely development.

They had warned of “rapid collapse of the Afghan military,” while Biden kept saying that such a situation was unlikely.

A report in the Wall Street Journal said that the classified cable gave the clearest proof that US had been warned by its own officials on the ground about the imminent advance of the Taliban which the Afghan forces may not be able to stop.

It had also offered recommendations on ways to mitigate the crisis and speed up evacuation, the report quoted two persons in know of things as saying.

It added that in recent months, the assessment of the situation in Afghanistan became more pessimistic with the Taliban making rapid and big gains.

Afghanistan has been the talking point across the world for past several days, as individuals and governments express concern over the treatment of the general public at the hands of the Taliban.
