she had a Congressman on who was a platoon leader in Afghanistan, oh my god what an intelligent explanation of president Biden's gutsy decision to leave. He said our military can win every battle but there was no end game, no good situation because the Taliban can just wait us out.

He said we shouldn't ignore the good we have done for the country while we were there; Schooling, diminishing poverty, diminishing hunger and sickness and infant mortality. With that said, the Congressman stated that we have left Afghanistan a better place but he said we shall see 6 months from now if the Taliban wipes out all of the gains.
