Okay, so lets go to that article
Let me make this easy so we don't have to go 100 pages and the need to call Chaim.  :)

If you would have said the article I posted cherrypicked from the interview and doesn't give the whole picture that would be right.

If you post the NY article first and said this is basically what they are saying I wouldn't have an issue.

National Review: Pompeo’s Underwhelming Defense of the Trump–Taliban Agreement.
https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/08/pompeos-underwhelming-defense-of-the-trump-taliban-agreement/

This is a stinging indictment of Trumps original plan. The byline says it all.

"The best spin Pompeo can now put on it is that a reelected Trump would have abandoned it"

Doesn't seem too good. my understanding is that the Taliban were more than happy to let Americans finish and get out easy so they can then start their own "Country"

Is it, though?
I guess it's different when you hear numbers in the abstract vs. when you see the lines of weapons and humongous piles of cash.

When you need to "see" something in a statement that says it all. Would you "see" the same thing if Pelosi said it. Of course not.

That would be my guess if it happens after we pull out. If it happens before I am not sure.

Unfortunately, it seems likely we'll find out...

Not such a light note. Just illustrates how we have no clue who we just flew into our country.
