"I know most of my afghan knowledge comes from the movie. Charlie wilson's war With tom hanks. Julia roberts Of course which is mine came from spies like us ramble three. Oh my god. We're sending out into the field. Is that it did seem that people are basically like either way. We're going to stay there forever or this was inevitable and it does seem like because of the world we live in now social media and so quick to point fingers and blame instead of being like. How do we handle something that is just in itself. tragic is a you know what i mean as opposed to just being like. It's their policy paul. Therefore it's like. Can we just do the best we can handling this. That's what my wish would be. This has been interesting. Because i think there was a pretty wide broad consensus that america's own infinity war had to come to an end so ending the war and bring the troops home was very popular. This was actually decision. Made by the previous administration with a deal that was hammered out. Back in twenty nineteen and then started coming to fruition in two thousand twenty and was put into place with an actual pullout deadline of may the end of may which the biden administration came in. That was like three months into his administration. They did some negotiations to kind of. Push it to the end of august. They i think the august thirty first was sort of an arbitrary date pulled out because they didn't they wanted it to be over by the twentieth anniversary of september eleventh that being said the logistics of doing something like this are messy because as soon as it starts. Chaos erupts soon as you start. Sending people home chaos erupts. And as we we've sort of seen there were wires emails earlier going back saying hey you might wanna think about going in a lot of people who are on the ground didn't want give up the mission. There are a lot of people working in the state department. There are a lot of people at the embassy who just refuse to to just up and leave the whether they're working with afghan nationals on the ground trying to get working the visa issues that was backlogged because of a lot of things that happened the previous administration and over the past twenty years all of the logistical problems. They didn't wanna leave until they were forced to leave. And now it's a question of getting everyone out one thing that's been interesting is the initial chaos which was terrifying and frightening and did take everyone by surprise the the ability for us to move tens of thousands of people out as quickly as we have just in the past couple of days has been extraordinary and so i think there can be some criticism leveled at how we allowed that to sort of blow up both figuratively and literally and allow such a good optics for the taliban. But it's also sort of lit a fire under everyones asses and was like. Hey we we gotta do this and no time to think about now. Just get people on planes do it. We're working with with allied countries working with coalition partners. I don't think. I think if we had not seen that chaos erupt it would have been much more difficult to convince a lot of these other countries to be accepting refugees. At the rate they're accepting them and also us. We're sending refugees to fort bliss. Fort lee fort mccoy right now. We're bringing them into the into the us..
