Today’s news – fall of Kabul

I’m sure you all know about the botched U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. Afghan President Ghani has fled, the Taliban is in charge of Kabul and occupying the Presidential Palace, and Americans are fleeing the country.

The unavoidable comparison between Kabul and Saigon is clear.

Meanwhile, the establishment in D.C. is confused and in a general mess.

Even CNN’s Jake Tapper grilled Secretary Blinken this morning:

“Secretary Blinken, as you know, the Taliban has closed in on Kabul,” Tapper said to the secretary of state on CNN’s State of the Union. “We are evacuating the embassy, burning documents, Biden increased troops, deploying to the country twice in three days just to rescue those there. This is not just about the overall idea of leaving Afghanistan. This is about leaving hastily and ineptly. How did President Biden get this so wrong?”

Maybe that’s been the plan all along. This is a good excuse to get rid of Joe Biden and put Kamala Harris in charge.

    Correct order of operations:

    1. Shred sensitive documents.
    2. Evacuate civilians and allies.
    3. Pull out military.
    4. Announce end of fighting.

    Not the opposite.
