Will Biden betray 9-11 Families?

That's what the NY Sun's wondering, if Biden will sell out to the Taliban, in the months after the Afghanistan fiasco, along with the embarrassments that took place at this year's 9-11 Memorial service:
The Biden administration has already shown worrying signs of going wobbly. Thomas West, America’s envoy for Afghanistan, dropped the ball when the Voice of America asked about “the Taliban’s appeal to release” its frozen assets in November. Instead of offering a clear explanation as to why the funds were being withheld, or suggesting America could use the money as leverage in future dealings with the Kabul regime, he meandered in bureaucratic legalese.

The “reason that those assets are not moving is not because there is some executive branch action to freeze them, so to speak,” Mr. West said, calling it “a misnomer.” He cited “very complicated legal reasons, as well as judicial reasons, for why that money is not moving from particular banks into other places.” After the Biden administration’s humbling surrender in Afghanistan, this is hardly the stern denial that are the Taliban’s just deserts.

For one thing, the Taliban aren’t the only ones with their eyes on the frozen billions. The families of Americans killed on September 11, 2001, also want the money — and have a far better claim. In 2012, a federal judge determined the families were entitled to approximately $7 billion in damages from the Taliban for its role in the terrorist attacks that day. Other victims’ families are now also looking for their share. The Biden administration has asked for more time to decide.

That is not a good sign. The administration “has been actively considering the complex issues” surrounding the frozen billions, a Justice department lawyer explained in November, asking until January 28 to announce its position. A federal magistrate judge granted the request in “the interest of comity,” acknowledging “the treatment of the Afghan funds” at the Fed “involves numerous complicated questions of law and policy.”
Let us be firmly clear. The money should be going to victims of 9-11. NOT to barbarians. If fraud-in-chief Biden provides the Taliban with any funding, he'll have done a most abominable act at the expense of their victims. And that's but one of the reasons why his pseudo-administration is such a disaster.
