Reports out of Afghanistan have confirmed that Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani fled Kabul on Sunday.
The President fled the Capitol after Taliban fighters took over the city following the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the embattled nation.
Afghan outlet Tolo News reported that Ghani fled the city with his top aides and had reportedly negotiated a settlement with the Taliban that involved his resignation.
Ghani’s office refused to “say anything about Ashraf Ghani’s movement for security reasons.” It is suspected that Ghani and his top aides are en route to neighboring Takijistan as Afghanistan is now entirely controlled by the Taliban.
The Taliban have seized the Capitols of Herat, Kandahar, Badghis, and Helmand provinces. Kabul is all but under the Taliban’s control even as foreign nations complete evacuations of key personnel.
President Ghani fleeing Afghanistan is the final nail in the coffin. The Taliban have reconquered Afghanistan, and those responsible for allowing that to happen will face the consequences.
