RNC Goes Full 1984 Removing Post Praising President Trump’s Plan to Leave Afghanistan

A Republican National Committee (RNC) post touting the Trump administration’s peace deal with the Taliban is offline, along with all posts before 2021, during what the RNC said is routine website maintenance.

Internet archive site Wayback Machine shows a Sept. 15, 2020, post praising former President Trump’s “historic peace agreement with the Taliban.” The post is no longer on the RNC site, nor are any posts from that section of the website before Jan. 1, 2021.

In a tweet, RNC’s deputy chief of staff Mike Reed disputed the Insider report, saying the GOP committee had launched a new website and some posts haven’t been transferred yet.

Taliban fighters entered the capital city of Kabul on Sunday, regaining control of Afghanistan for the first time in 20 years, when U.S. troops arrived shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Democrats and Republicans have been pointing fingers over who’s to blame for the quick collapse of the Afghan government amid the withdrawal of U.S. troops that President Biden ordered earlier this year. However, with such a rapid take over by the Taliban, it would suggest that this result would be almost inevitable regardless of how or when the US pulled out of Afghanistan.
