John Bolton has warned that the Taliban could seize nuclear weapons if Islamists take control of Pakistan. Trump made a peace deal with the Taliban that promised a US withdrawal if the Taliban did not harbor terrorists or attack US forces or allies. Speaking with US station WABC 770 on Sunday, Bolton said: “The Taliban who control Afghanistan threaten the possibility of terrorists taking control of Pakistan.
“That means maybe 150 nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists.”
The one-eyed mullah Nooruddin Turabi is among the Taliban’s top brass, who could cash in on such loot.
Now he has become the official in charge of Afghanistan’s prison system.
He issued a grim warning, stating that brutal executions and amputations will return to Afghanistan under the militants’ rule.
Speaking to the Associated Press, he said: “Everyone criticized us for the punishments at the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments.
“No one will tell us what our laws should be.
“We will follow Islam and make our laws on the Koran.”
The Biden administration completed a catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan on August 30.

Bolton served under the presidency of Donald Trump between April 2018 and September 2019.
Since Biden’s withdrawal of US troops, he warned that the US president may have “lost control over the foreign policy of his own administration.”
However, the US president has blamed his predecessor Donald Trump for the chaos in Afghanistan.
After the United States left, the Taliban marched dozens of American-made armored vehicles and weaponry through Afghan cities.
In the southern city of Kandahar, a heartland of the Taliban, the militant group flew a Black Hawk helicopter flight.
The US-made helicopter flew a Taliban flag.
On the ground in Kandahar, a long line of green Humvees and armored fighting vehicles moved single file along a road.
The old American vehicles now flew the black and white flag of the Taliban.
