On Wednesday morning, as the Biden administration was in the middle of the maelstrom caused by its disastrous retreat from Afghanistan, Vice President Kamala Harris decided it was a propitious moment to defend her boss, tweeting, “Joe Biden made a commitment to the American people when he ran for president that he would bring America’s military involvement in Afghanistan to an end. It’s the right decision.” Harris was bashed for her sunny-side optimism; Nile Gardiner, a former aide to iconic British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, tweeted, “A monumentally reckless decision. This is not leadership, it is an appalling surrender to the murderous Taliban.” Shafik Hamdam, Deputy Senior Adviser to Ashraf Ghani, President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, chimed in: “Says who? The world is waiting to hear you about the women and children’s rights in Afghanistan and the evacuation plan.” In July 2019, the Council of Foreign Relations asked the roster of Democratic presidential candidates, “Would you commit to the full withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of your first term, or would you require certain conditions be met before doing so?”
