On Friday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) verbally expressed the U.S. doesn’t have leverage over the Taliban because China will provide the Taliban with whatever mazuma it requires, and they have the leverage of Americans who can be taken hostage.
Gallagher verbalized, “[T]he administration is out there telling us, well, don’t worry. The mission hasn’t ended. We can still get our people out. Because we have leverage. What a jape, Hugh. We don’t have leverage. Their entire theory of the case [is] that we have leverage because the Taliban want apperception, they optate humanitarian assistance. But the Chinese are going to provide them with whatever cash they require. And leverage emanates from triumph on the ground, and they retain it. We don’t. We surrendered to them. And now, they have the leverage that emanates from hundreds of Americans potentially being taken hostage by the Taliban and sold to al-Qaeda or sold to some other country. We have no leverage.”
