The Afghanistan Papers

“What we are seeing is the culmination of 20 years of bad decisions by U.S. political and military leaders. If anything, Americans should feel proud of what the U.S. government and military have accomplished in the past two weeks. President Biden deserves credit, not blame…Biden alone has had the political courage to fully end America’s involvement…(with) one of the most extraordinary logistical feats in recent memory…The total number of Americans and Afghan allies extricated from the country may exceed 120,000.” — David Rothkopf, The Atlantic.
