Various neocons are venting over the incompetence of our withdrawal from Kabul, and they are looking for someone to blame. I suggest they grab a mirror:
- Mission creep set in in Afghanistan because it was seen as a “good war” that could help build support for our misadventure in Iraq, a neocon project par excellence.
- Another neocon project was to drive President Trump out of the White House and to leave “the adults,” of whom Biden was certainly one, in charge. To the extent the debacle in Kabul wasn’t simply inevitable, the fault rests with the man the neocons told us to vote for.
