The War Presidents’ Debacle

Source: Common Sense
by Paul Jacob

“President Biden yesterday called the now somewhat completed withdrawal of U.S., Afghan and coalition soldiers and civilians an ‘extraordinary success,’ arguing that ‘no nation has ever done anything like it in all of history.’ There were a reported 120,000 people airlifted out, but with 13 U.S. soldiers killed in last week’s suicide attack at the Kabul airport, along with three British nationals and more than 160 Afghans — let’s cancel any victory lap. Still, I’m more with Mr. Biden than with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who made the case on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace that the occupation of Afghanistan was a complete success, making the pull-out (now over) a horrendous policy mistake.” (09/01/21)
