Very objective documentary on 9/11 and its aftermath. Most I knew but a few pieces that were new.

I have to say though, hearing Trump say, "If I wanted to win the Afghan War, it would be over in 10 days" was entertaining.

Well, he had 4 years or 1460 days. Either he didn't want to win the war, or he was too busy playing golf.

"Entertaining" is not a word I would use, there. "Frightening" is more like it. Read the latest book about it.

The problem with the former president's claim is that there are those who believe it.

He would just have declared victory and retreated--then declared victory again.

Like he does with elections.

Profiteering and contracting out 14 trillion dollars to fir profit corps is the only reason why the "Afghan war" continued on with no real purpose other than keeping the mic happy and employing Americans.

Phazer,
It's refreshing to hear someone else say the same thing I've been saying for years.

If he wanted to do anything, he would have.

Like everything else he says, it's a fantasy.

Lies, guesses, fantasies, projections, false words and fiction (fakes) aren't funny to me.

But then again, I'm a realist.
I realize I'm Real, but that's just me.

And it REALLY makes a difference.

Trump was the the awesomest president I ever saw, he's not the one who gave all the guns away to the taliban remember, America is certainly less safe now that #45 is gone,

If you say it, it must be true. After all, who needs facts and thought when he has emotion as his guide?

And by the way, who is it you think gave weapons to the Taliban?

The war against the Soviets ended years before the Taliban formed. Is it your view that 1980s weapons without spare parts and ammunition were still important in the 2010s and 2020s?

Or are you accusing some later president of surreptitiously arming the Taliban? If so, who and when?

Do you have any evidence or are we to rely on your testimony?

The weapons the U.S. left in Afghanistan after the Soviets left were specifically made to expire at a certain time and were no longer usable.

Yep. And the idea that weaponry doesn't get outdated with the passage of time is ridiculous.

macaRomney, how's that 1990 Ford of yours holding up?

Need to make it clear: THIS time the weaponry we left behind was NOT set to expire. We left behind State of the Art Radar Systems and very advanced technology which will, you can bet, be reverse-engineered and used against us.

Outfitting Terrorists with the latest in technology such as Night Vision Goggles, and Radar Systems is BAD. VERY BAD.

THIS time what was done was a VERY BAD move.
It WILL, and already is COSTING MANY LIVES

Agreed.

ETA: But after thirty years, in 2050, most of that ca 2020 weaponry won't serve much purpose other than as doorstops and letter openers.
