Joe Biden may be the first U.S. president to argue that if a decision leads to disastrous consequences, it must be the correct one.
In his speech on the meltdown in Afghanistan, the president said that the rapid collapse of government forces “reinforced that ending U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision.”
This is bizarre, since not too long ago Biden was insisting that we could withdraw because the Afghan military would be perfectly capable of carrying on without us.
What’s clear is that Biden was absolutely committed to exiting Afghanistan no matter what. He expressed no regrets yesterday, even as the worst case unspooled in Afghanistan, including unforgettable images of terrified Afghans clinging to a U.S. transport plane as it took off from Kabul’s international airport, with some falling to their deaths.
