Shock video: Lara Logan confirms what we feared about Afghanistan


Biden’s pullout from Afghanistan has been the worst managed event in American history. With Saigon as an example, the administration knew exactly how bad it would be. There’s a lot of finger-pointing going on now, but, at bottom, people are wondering if the unconditional Taliban takeover, including the trapped Americans, is a deliberate policy. On Tucker Carlson’s Wednesday show, Lara Logan said, “Yes, it is. This was what the government wanted.” A little background: We’ve been in Afghanistan for 20 years now, ostensibly to “nation-build,” à la Germany and Japan. Back then, though, we completely defeated them and installed ourselves in power, only slowly releasing power if they’d fully embraced Western democratic values. And we still stayed for over 70 years, keeping an eye on things. We never flattened Afghanistan. Instead, we imposed ourselves on top of a medieval Islamic country, including the whole LGBT madness. It worked for those already geared to Western values and those looking to take American money. The Afghan military, many members of which were brave fighters, clearly would never be ready to lose their training wheels — with our military being the training wheels.
