While this is the case, many unanswered concerns regarding its unfinished goal still exist, such as why the leadership continued to work on it ten years after killing the 9/11 hijacker and taking down his deadly networks. The House Republicans, who won a slim majority in the midterm elections, have declared their intention to launch a new investigation into President Biden’s botched evacuation and bring it to a boil by the 2024 election season. However, it is the conflict’s chaotic conclusion from a year ago that is about to receive renewed attention. The C-17 Globemaster III was on an intelligence mission to transport a cutting-edge special operations helicopter for use in impromptu covert rescue operations. The crisis compelled the top commander at the airfield to order the C-17 back into the air rather than unloading the delicate cargo. For the CIA, hardline Afghan fighters had participated in capture/kill operations. Taliban forces, 82nd Airborne paratroopers, U.S. Marines, and the Army’s Delta Force all assisted in clearing HKIA. At various gates where Afghans and foreigners entered HKIA in a haphazard flow, the NSU teams pulled security.The CIA’s tiger-striped paramilitaries were frequently more brutal with their compatriots at North, East, and Abbey Gates.
