  • Around $7.12 billion in American-funded military equipment ranging from military aircrafts, ground vehicles, firearms, munitions, and other military equipment was still in possession of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) when the government in collapsed in 2020, according to a newly released report by the Pentagon outlining the exact damage and consequences of the withdrawal one year ago.
  • According to the report by Sean W. O’Donnell, the Pentagon’s lead inspector for Operation Enduring Sentinel and Operation Freedom’s Sentinel, the $7.12 billion from the Department of Defense covers roughly 38 percent of the $18.6 billion collected for creating and developing weapons and military equipment for the former Afghan military between 2005 and 2021.
