- The exit was poorly planned and poorly executed.
- It was Bush who foolishly got us in.
- Obama and Trump both promised to get us out and failed.
- In escaping a totally corrupt and unwinnable mission, Biden at least succeeded albeit in a terribly messy way.
Lesson of the Day
The overriding lesson of the day is don't put US troops where they do not belong on nearly endless missions in the first place.
Bush started it, then Obama and Trump kept us there in a war that could not be won.
Along the way, the mission morphed from getting Bin Laden to nation building without any administration having a clue about Afghan tribal customs.
