I know he's old, but not that old. :)

Lol, there are a bunch of DDFers who could remember those Olympics, including CV.

You just can't keep extending the deadline and expect no response from the other side.
Who is the one that caused the OTHER SIDE to be taliban? Who showed weekness? Who bowed to their terms?

Ya, didn't he surrender the country with Doha? That was the ultimate sign of weakness.
With that being said Biden did not have to follow what he did.

And also could have managed the implementation competently.

Some say members never change their positions. Mine has evolved. I would say differently instead of competently.

BINGO, but who is the one who dropped the ball on that? It seems that the Biden admin was warned about this by the intel community. When did they make this assessment? Was it while Trump was in office? After?

My guess is that it was under Trump, which is why the pullout was delayed and didn't happen under him.

A month ago Biden was saying publicly that the Afghan army/government would have things under control and the country would not fall to the Taliban. It is revisionist history for the administration to claim that they always said this would happen but they just thought it would take a few months longer.

Oops, had a bit of a brain fart there. I saw Munich Olympics and got confused with 1936, which obviously makes no sense with even the slightest bit of thought...

This incompetence is outrageous. They really don't have a kill switch or can't just bomb the place?? And how exactly the Pakistanis are assisting this?

The remains of the 13 US troops killed in the ISIS suicide attack outside the Kabul airport on Thursday are currently en route to Dover Air Force Base for dignified transfer, the Pentagon says. :'( :'(
