I was unemployed at the time of 9-11. I was home, working on job applications when I got a call from Satan’s Favorite Daughter, i.e., my first wife (no, I’m not bitter, why do you ask?). She told me to go look at the news.
Captain Whiteman and his platoon were ordered to support Afghan soldiers and protect a friendly Afghan village with its 12 American aid workers. Without orders, Captain Whiteman withdrew his platoon during the night without telling his Afghan allies and leaving their position indefensible.
Folks, how can we take the Left seriously; they are consistently inconsistent. They will rationalize anything or anybody to appease any group of sane, insane, kooks or criminals in order to harvest votes.
It’s estimated “only low hundreds” of Americans were left behind in Afghanistan, and “maybe they chose to stay”? And maybe we should believe Biden is a master strategist and political savant and only acts like a befuddled idiot to fool our unfriendly opponents?
In response to Janet Simmon’s critique of one of my past letters, I first thank her for agreeing with me that any and all terrorism is abhorrent and unethical. She does, however, choose to describe Hamas as a political party, which is a description I must challenge.
No one in the West can watch the events unfolding in Afghanistan without a sense of horror. The nation-building dreams of neocon George Bush, continued by the feckless Obama for eight more years, are coming crashing down.
It perplexes me why the liberal Left tends to support Islamic causes while demeaning Christian and Jewish religions. It can’t be based on any moral/ethical grounds. If anything, Islam is far more stringent and less tolerant on every key liberal issue.
