Trump’s selfishness should be the aberration. Biden can use the UN pulpit to return to his deep roots as an internationalist who understands that countries don’t simply ally with America out of fear, bribes or narrow security concerns. My latest column: washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…

Today's last look: The ADL has repudiated one of the most noxious decisions it ever made in its long & otherwise distinguished history—to oppose the proposed Park51 Islamic Community Center & Mosque. My thoughts on the value of acknowledging mistakes:
Pt. 2 of my conversation w/ Ukrainian Pres. @ZelenskyyUa: why our hoped-for interview didn't happen two years ago—& what fmr. Pres. Donald Trump had to do w/ it
After the US exit from Afghanistan, can allies still count on American support in the face of threats? Pt. 1 of my exclusive interview w/ Ukrainian Pres. @ZelenskyyUa, from today's GPS:
The lessons of Afghanistan & the decision to withdraw: pt. 2 of my interview w/ fmr UK PM Tony Blair, from today's show
Looking back on 9/11—and on what we've learned about radical Islam since 2001: pt. 1 of my conversation w/ fmr UK PM Tony Blair, from today's GPS
Twenty years after 9/11, we are still not clear on how to think about radical Islam. It is real, it is evil, but it has lost the ideological argument. My take:
On GPS, @ 10am & 1pm on @CNN: I’ll ask fmr UK PM Tony Blair about 9/11’s aftermath & what we’ve learned of radical Islam. I’ll have an exclusive interview w/ Ukrainian Pres. @ZelenskyyUa about whether he feels he can still count on US support after the Afghanistan exit
… finally, I’ll look back on the Anti-Defamation League’s opposition to the planned mosque & community center in lower Manhattan 11 years ago—& its reversal earlier this month.
… Do America’s friends still count on US support, after the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal? I’ll ask an important one—Ukrainian President @ZelenskyyUa—whose country holds a front line against Russian aggression …
… I’ll also talk w/ Blair about what we’ve learned in the West’s two-decade campaign against radical Islam & what to make of the US & NATO exit from Afghanistan …
On GPS, @ 10am & 1pm ET Sunday on @CNN: 20 years after 9/11, I’ll ask fmr UK PM Tony Blair—who made good on his promise to “stand shoulder-to-shoulder” with America after 9/11—how he remembers that day & all that followed …
"Why They Hate Us." I wrote this cover story in three frenzied days, soon after 9/11. It holds up. (Initial estimates of the dead were 5,000, hence my use of that number. newsweek.com/politics-rage-…
Jihadism has changed a lot in 20 years, too newlinesmag.com/argument/what-…
It is not surprising that the Taliban is seeking out China as its most important partner. My bet is that it will have a much harder time finding easy allies in the Muslim world. My latest column: washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…
It has never been more clear that the health of a society and the health of its people are deeply intertwined. My take, from Sunday's special on The Post-Covid-19 World:
The pandemic has pushed many into poverty—but it has also made some of the rich even richer. My conversation w/ @zannymb about what the post-pandemic economy will bring for ppl & countries across the wealth spectrum:
Are cities back? And what will the pandemic change about where we choose to live & work—& about our city centers themselves? My conversation w/ @Richard_Florida, from Sunday's special:
More from "The Post-Covid-19 World": What has Covid-19 taken away from education? And how can we get it back? My conversation w/ @arneduncan about how school needs to change, from hybrid learning to summer breaks:
Has the pandemic permanently changed work? In my Sunday special, "The Post-Covid-19 World," I asked @joannelipman:
The Taliban seem to be consolidating control of territory. Will they truly control the country? economist.com/asia/2021/09/0…
“Let's be clear: We lost the war in Afghanistan, in my opinion, in the fall of 2002.” spiegel.de/international/…
Today on @CNN, @ 10am & 1pm ET: My new special, “The Post Covid-19 World,” examines big changes to many corners of life. I’ll ask @joannelipman where we'll work, @arneduncan how school must change, @Richard_Florida if cities will survive & @zannymb re: the post-pandemic economy
… finally, I’ll share my take on how Covid-19 laid bare the fissures in our society—and what we can do to build back better, where our social fabric is concerned.
... The pandemic crashed the economy for many, but for some, it was a boom. What will the post-pandemic economy look like for ppl across the wealth spectrum & around the world? I’ll talk w/ @zannymb
… Some thought Covid-19 would spell the end of cities. Will it? I’ll ask @Richard_Florida what will be different about commuting habits, where ppl choose to live, & our city centers …
… What has Covid-19 taken away from education—& how can we get it back? I’ll ask @arneduncan how school might need to change, from hybrid learning models to summer breaks …
… With the rise of remote work & talk of a flexible future model for time spent in offices, what will work life look like? What should it look like? I’ll talk w/ @joannelipman
Tomorrow on @CNN, @ 10am & 1pm ET: How has the pandemic changed how we live, work, & educate our kids? What will be different about our cities & economy moving forward? I’ll examine that & more in a new special, “The Post Covid-19 World” …
I wrote this in 2018. Wish someone would have listened. washingtonpost.com/opinions/its-t…
The idea 2,500 U.S. troops were in a "sustainable stalemate" in Afghanistan is suspect. The Taliban were attacking more, and at the same time appear to have been avoiding attacking U.S. troops after the Doha agreement. That latter bit would likely not have lasted.

If you want one statistic to explain the failure of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, it is this: The National Security Council met 36 times since April to discuss it. My latest column: washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…
Fascinating perspective from one of the smartest Afghan civic leaders. twitter.com/camanpour/stat…
There is no elegant way to lose a war. My latest column: washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…
As fires rage in southern Europe, Greek PM @kmitsotakis calls them a climate "wakeup call." Our interview, from today's show:
The IPCC's latest climate report included even more dire warnings about our planet. What can (& can't) be done? My conversation w/ US climate envoy @JohnKerry, from today's GPS:
