The Afghanistan Mess




In today’s UnPresidented podcast we talk about Afghanistan.

Is Biden to Blame? Trump? Was it really not predictable that Kabul would fall this quickly? And what about the interpreters and the embassy staff — why weren’t contingencies made for them in advance?

Cliff and I don’t blame Biden for the mess overall — the US lost this war long ago, and it was time to leave. But Biden is responsible for “how” we left. And did he do as good a job as he could have?

That’s the question on today’s podcast.
