They knew the risks and were there anyways. Heroes twitter.com/peterbakernyt/…
and before the inevitable where were you questions...I was writing stories like this 5 years ago about Afghan widows forced to perform sexual favors to get their US govt provided pensions dailycaller.com/2017/09/21/wid…
We would have left Afghanistan in 2012 like we should have if the media ever gave as much of a shit about some of the much bigger catastrophes that occurred during the actual war itself
The withdrawal (as big as a disaster as it has been) so far has been eminently more competent than the actual prosecution of the war and yet guess which draws the vast majority of media attention and faux partisan outrage? twitter.com/bungarsargon/s…
Another excellent segment by @esaagar & @krystalball about how the Afghanistan withdrawal is a media story as much as anything else. There's a lot of manufacturing consent happening, now focused on staying past the August 31 deadline. Don't fall for it: youtube.com/watch?v=9wvDww…

Powering through COVID requires motivation, so I summoned the spirit of one of my favorite presidents US Grant Many asking which copy I had behind me today etc. Link here: bookshop.org/books/grant/97…
I could be wrong but I can't shake the feeling that Gavin Newsom is going down in CA
Only on @krystalball and my show will you hear both that media's coverage of Afghan withdrawal is unhinged AND that the FBI doesn't think January 6 was organized plot I am very proud of the show we do every day and the inability for anyone to pin us down youtube.com/c/breakingpoin…
I have a case of breakthrough COVID and will be doing the show from home this week. I feel like shit but have confidence I'll be fine since I'm vaxxed. My position on removing almost all pandemic restrictions remains steadfast I explain here: youtube.com/watch?v=emF0jV…

NEW: Ret Lt Gen Dal Bolger joins @RealignmentPod w/ @makosloff and me to discuss why the US LOST the war in AFG and Iraq. Gen Bolger commanded troops in AFG and wrote his book on why we lost years ago. He details exactly where it all went so wrong Listen: youtu.be/8LAY0KWwPUY
Great episode of @RealignmentPod, @esaagar @makosloff. Hard to believe the gen wrote that book so long ago. This is the kind of perspective you won't hear on cooperate media.

General Milley & the rest of the brass had 18 months to plan for withdrawal Their miserable failure and lies mimics the conduct of senior mil leadership throughout the entire war. Every single one of them should be fired The retired ones should be dragged before Congress twitter.com/atrupar/status…
.@esaagar & I just recorded a @RealignmentPod on this. This description of Afghanistan also applies to a post-Saigon/Watergate U.S. Yet, the USSR didn't invade Berlin in 75. Vietnam was a disaster, but it didn't make risking WWIII worth it. The same could apply to Taiwan today twitter.com/BryanDeanWrigh…

In the Afghan papers, they talk about producing more assessments than any human being could ever read. What happens is they later take the ones that were right and leak them to the press. You can’t take anything at face value, you have to assume you’re dealing with con artists. twitter.com/esaagar/status…

This is literally an opinion column shrieking for intervention in the most popular morning newsletter in DC lol
Every single national story I've read so far is just reprinting Pentagon and Intel propaganda trying to blame Biden for their own failures cnn.com/2021/08/17/pol… apnews.com/article/joe-bi… twitter.com/esaagar/status…
I was too young to really remember the media's Iraq WMD propaganda but after seeing virtually the entire corporate apparatus unite around forever war in Afghanistan I finally get it
Many of the people quoted in the Afghanistan papers lying to the American public are quoted in major newspaper stories today calling the withdrawal a disaster In Washington the forever war liars only fail upward despite their lies being known to all twitter.com/esaagar/status…
.@krystalball and I were honored to have @CraigMWhitlock on Breaking Points today. Craig broke the Afghanistan Papers story and showed us all more than a year ago how our government lied to us for decades about the war youtube.com/watch?v=nACVBq…
Where the people turn in a time of crisis
Me with your Neocon or MAGA cope tears
I'm enjoying the MAGA cope in my replies who conveniently forget Trump fell for the Generals tricks in 2017 and then was so incompetent he couldn't actually end the war by the end of his presidency
The best speech of Joe Biden's career and one of the most important speeches a President has given in my lifetime We have been waiting 20 years for someone to say "enough"
Joe Biden: "I will not mislead the American people by claiming just a little bit more time in Afghanistan will make all the difference"
Joe Biden is the first President of my lifetime who didn't fall for the tricks of the Pentagon and the Generals. Who held the middle finger up to the establishment on AFG, who resisted the media pressure abd stuck firmly by his guns. Who could have predicted it would be him twitter.com/esaagar/status…
Biden: "How many more generations of Americans daughters and sons would you have me send to fight in Afghanistan's civil war....I will not repeat the mistakes we've made in the past"
Biden: "If Afghanistan is not capable of mounting a defense against the Taliban now, there is no chance that 1 year or 5 years of US forces on the ground would make any difference"
Biden: "American troops cannot and should not be fighting and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight themselves"
Biden: "I stand squarely behind my decision, after 20 years I've learned the hard way there is never a good time to withdraw US Forces"
In France, I walked the battlefields of the Somme and visited the gravestone of a 15 year old soldier killed in combat I thought of him today as I make the case to reject keeping our pointless war in Afghanistan going and tell you who to really blame youtube.com/watch?v=g4JxWN…
Thread The "I want to leave but don't like the way this is done" crowd are just patsys for the forever war industrial complex. They refuse to grapple with just how incompetent and awful the US presence in Afghanistan is and has always been twitter.com/RichardHanania…
The people who want to stay in Afghanistan should be honest about what they want: 20 year old Americans getting blown to bits by a suicide bomb for a government that has no interest in governing and an army has that has no interest in fighting
This is why today was basically inevitable. The people we backed were liars and more interested in our money than they ever were in actually defending their own country twitter.com/IAmAmnaNawaz/s…
It tell you a lot that contemporary political discourse says the Afghan withdrawal is a "disaster" but refuses to use the same term for 20 years of lies, wasted American lives & wasted treasure
There was no "Afghan Government." It was a fiction the entire time backed only by US dollars, US blood, and US military might. The lie of building up a credible ally for 20 years falls in just 3 weeks Every General, diplomat, and President who pushed this lie is responsible twitter.com/ragipsoylu/sta…
2012 - General Allen: "We are winning" 2013 - General Dunford says success in Afghanistan is "inevitable" 2014 - General Campbell says he has "seen the change" 2017: General Nicholson says the situation has "fundamentally changed" twitter.com/esaagar/status…
For those criticizing Biden, it was always going to be this way. On the margins some things could have been done better but the basic fact is the people we allied with are corrupt as hell and were happy to let US troops die for their country but weren't willing to do the same twitter.com/esaagar/status…
The real story out of Afghanistan is that the Pentagon and every US commander since 2012 has LIED to the American people about the capability of Afghan Forces. The Afghan's stark corruption and collapse within a month is all we got for $2 trillion & thousands of American lives
We used to fulfill our hunger for purpose with patriotism, religion, and hard work. Today there’s a moral vacuum in their wake, and the secular religion of postmodernism fills the void instead. Now companies are preying on it to make an extra buck.
