Ashraf Ghani Settles In United Arab Emirates After Fleeing Afghanistan With Helicopter Full Of Cash

By Patrick Tsui/FCO, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani attending the London Conference on Afghanistan on 4 December 2014.

On August 18, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced that it is currently hosting former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his family on “humanitarian grounds”.

Ghani resigned and fled Afghanistan on August 15 just a few hours before the Taliban took over the capital, Kabul. The UAE’s decision to host Ghani represent a shift in the overall policy of the Islamic country, which was one of the very few around the world to recognize the Taliban rule before the September 11 Attacks.

“The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation can confirm that the UAE has welcomed President Ashraf Ghani and his family into the country on humanitarian grounds,” the ministry said in a statement.

Initially, media reports claimed that Ghani travelled to Oman after Tajikistan denied him permission to enter. Beck then, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Kabul, Nikita Ishchenko, told RIA Novosti that Ghani fled Afghanistan with four cars and a helicopter all stuffed full of cash.

“The collapse of the [Afghan] regime…is most eloquently characterized by how Ghani escaped from Afghanistan: four cars were filled with money, they tried to shove another part of the money into a helicopter, but not everything fit,” Ishchenko said. “And some of the money was left lying on the tarmac.”

Ghani’s last decisions as the President of Afghanistan were also criticized by his main backer and closest ally, the US. Washington attempted to pin its failure on the man.

“President Ghani insisted ­Afghan forces would fight [against the Taliban], but ­obviously he was wrong,” President Joe Biden said, referring to private Phone conversations he had with Ghani after announcing the decision to withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan before September 11.

With the Taliban solidifying its grip over Afghanistan, Ghani will not likely play any role in the country’s future. On the other hand, Vice President Amrullah Saleh, who declared himself the legitimate head of Afghanistan, is currently organizing a resistance in the province of Parwan to the north of Kabul.

Ghani has no real value to US now, there is no reason to him put on ice in Virginia for later. He fled and has no viable or realistic pathway back to power. At this point its all about him buying a safe berth – buying safe exile, and proving has cash reserves to pay, to stay.

GHANI how will you organize and fight back when your Afghan Army stood down for following reasons
They observed ,saw and concluded that USA/NATO troops were conducting a racial war on Afghan people whereby innocent Afghans were blown up into pieces maimed or killed
Their livelihood destroyed and these invaders never apologized nor had any remorse
LYING AND HYPOCRISY WAS EMBEDDED IN THEIR BLOOD
Majority of those killed and maimed were Afghan children and women
THEIR SCHOOLS,UNIVERSITIES,HOSPITALS,INFRASTRUCTURE WERE BOMBED AND DESTROYED
THEIR VALUES WERE BEING QUESTIONED IE THEIR CULTURE
VALUE SYSTEM WAS LOOKED AT BEING INFERIOR
DRUG CULTURE WAS WHAT THEY WERE SUPPORTING
AND CULTIVATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF POPPY WAS GUARDED BY USA/NATO TROOPS
THEY SAW AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THEIR TRUE FEELINGS AND ALLIANCES,DEALS WERE MADE WITH TALIBAN IT WAS NOT ABOUT MONEY OR SALARIES NOT PAID
