    The Taliban and its allies have apparently killed "scores of former Afghan officials, security force members and people who worked with the international military contingent since the U.S.-led pullout," according to a United Nations report reviewed by Reuters.

    The U.N. report, produced by U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres and sent to the U.N. Security Council, shows that Afghanistan's 39 million residents are experiencing deteriorating living conditions following the United States' disastrous withdrawal last August, which allowed the Taliban to take over the country.

    "An entire complex social and economic system is shutting down," Guterres wrote in the report, according to Reuters.

    Guterres recommended in his report that the U.N. restructure its mission in Afghanistan to help fix the problem and create a new human rights monitoring unit.

    The report found that the U.N. "continues to receive credible allegations of killings, enforced disappearances and other violations" against former Afghan officials, members of the security force, and those who worked with the U.S.

    "The mission has determined as credible reports that more than 100 of those individuals have been killed - more than two-thirds of them allegedly by the Taliban or their affiliates - since Aug. 15," Reuters said of the report. "There also are credible allegations of the extra-judicial killings of at least 50 people suspected of belonging to the local branch of the Islamic State militant group, according to the report."

    The report added: "Human rights defenders and media workers continue to come under attack, intimidation, harassment, arbitrary arrest, ill-treatment and killings."

    The news is yet another blow to the Biden administration, which penned its hopes on the Taliban not resorting to terrorism and barbarianism after taking control of Afghanistan following the administration's botched withdrawal. The New York Times reported in April 2021 - before the Taliban takeover actually happened - that the Biden administration insisted the Taliban could govern more moderately than critics feared in an effort to seek legitimacy and financial support from other countries.

    The U.N. report confirms once again that the administration badly miscalculated the situation in Afghanistan.

    Reuters also reported that the Taliban is planning to reopen Afghanistan's public universities, which shut down when the terrorist regime seized power, but it is still unclear whether women will be allowed to obtain an education. As the outlet noted, Taliban officials in the past "have suggested that women could be taught in separate classes."

    "So far, the Taliban government has reopened high schools for boys only in most parts of the country. Some private universities have reopened, but in many cases female students have not been able to return to class," Reuters reported. "Western governments have made education for female students a part of their demands as the Taliban seek more foreign aid and the unfreezing of overseas assets."

    As The Daily Wire reported in December, Afghan women protested the Taliban's killing of U.S. allies and former Afghan soldiers.
