The big takeaway is that the generals knew all along that their Afghan puppet government was fake and would collapse without an indefinite American military occupation and air support. They’ve spent the last 20 years lying about all the “progress” that they were making in Afghanistan and lying to presidents about how staying there only a few more months would work or how we would emerge victorious after launching another surge. Joe Biden was correct that there was never a good time to leave.
Note: In our system, Joe Biden was crucified by the media for making the right decision. The “journalists” are nothing but lapdogs of the Pentagon and “intelligence community.”
