I heard a BBC News Hour on NPR where they interviewed an Afghan commander. He said Pakistan is supplying weapons and men in support of the Taliban. There were other reports about the collapse of the Afghan government during the hour. This link has some info if you are interested.https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-58187410Afghanistan: How the Taliban gained ground so quickly<snip>The Afghan army and police have a troubled history of high casualties, desertions and corruption - with some unscrupulous commanders claiming the salaries of troops who simply didn't exist - so called "ghost soldiers".In its latest report to the US Congress, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan (SIGAR) expressed "serious concerns about the corrosive effects of corruption... and the questionable accuracy of data on the actual strength of the force".
