“The fact that Mike Pompeo was the first Secretary of State to meet with the Taliban, the fact that they were considering inviting the Taliban to Camp David on 9/11 — that set this all in motion,” Liz Cheney said of former President Donald Trump and his administration. She continued to say that she, as well as other ranking members of the party, were told by the former president and Pompeo that “we were going to renounce the Taliban, we were going to renounce Al-Qaeda…none of that happened.” As the well-known war hawk warned in early 2020, as the Trump administration left the Afghan government out of negotiations with the Taliban, “Any deal that the United States would contemplate entering into with the Taliban should be made public in its entirety.”
