Did Hamas terrorists get their weapons from U.S. equipment left behind in Afghanistan?

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., gave voice to a concern that many Americans are likely considering in the wake of Hamas terrorists’ bloody invasion of Israeli territory, asking if the invaders’ weapons came from the multi-billion-dollar stockpile of weaponry left behind in Afghanistan at the behest of the Biden administration’s catastrophic withdrawal in 2021.

She also suggested that the terrorists’ weapons could have also originated from Ukraine.

Rep. Greene wrote on X on Sunday, “We need to work with Israel to track serial numbers on any U.S. weapons used by Hamas against Israel. Did they come from Afghanistan? Did they come from Ukraine? Highly likely the answer is both.”

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, officers of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly worked with Hamas over the past two months to plan the most devastating invasion of Israel since 1973.

Since the onset of the Ukraine-Russia war, the Biden administration has relentlessly funded the war efforts of Ukraine to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars in aid and military equipment.

Before the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the Biden administration withdrew chaotically from Afghanistan, resulting in the deaths of 13 honorable U.S. soldiers. The administration also left behind billions of dollars of military equipment that fell into the hands of the hostile Taliban.

President Donald Trump has strongly criticized the administration’s failure in Afghanistan, noting earlier this year on Fox News, “They left $85 billion worth of equipment. They left our American citizens behind.”

Rep. Greene pointed out on X that the Biden administration’s recent decision to give $6 billion to Iran amid a controversial hostage negotiation deal could have been used to fund the terrorists’ war against the Holy Land.

She remarked, “You have to be an idiot to believe the Biden admin’s talking points that none of the $6 billion released to Iran could be used for war against Israel. Once the admin gave it to Iran, they can spend it however they want including spending their own money and repurposing the $6 billion.”
