How The Withdrawal From Afghanistan Could Define President Biden’s Legacy

Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd joins Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist to discuss the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and the impact it will have around the world and on the legacy of Joe Biden’s presidency. “At the end of the day, Willie, this is a decision that’s going to haunt him,” he says.

Maybe some of that trillions that will be saved from the end of the war in Afghanistan should go to the many veterans who came back from overseas wars that are homeless and drug addicts due to PTSD and can't get the proper support from the VA. Go figure.

No. It will add to its current definition of inflation, high gas prices, help wanted signs, and a daily super spreader event on our border. Or it would...if our press ever decides to talk about any of that.

America left Vietnam and the world was ending that day apparently for all those talking about Saigon. Yet today Vietnam is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, they have their full national sovereignty and they are actually now considered an ally of the United States, if even out of convenience because of China.
Craig Ling
Craig Ling:
This latest policy blunder by Biden just left the Taliban with one of the largest equipped military in the region. Tanks, helicopters,, artillery, fighter and transport aircraft, huge stockpiles of ammunition and fuel depots, and of course hundreds of thousands of M-4 automatic assault rifles, machine guns, grenades and launchers, mortars, night vision equipment, scopes, and huge stop piles of ammunition to go with it. All of it of the latest technology available. Just like Vietnam. There is one difference. When the war ended in Vietnam, the Vietnamese people had no interest in following us back to America and attacking us. The Taliban, Iran, and every other terrorist group in the Middle East will. All we had to do was leave 2500 soldiers there to insure that wouldn't happen. But Biden is Biden. Just like everything else he has touched since entering office, he screwed it up. Why would any foreign nation trust us after this? Why would anyone encourage their children to join our current military. As said many times before, who wants to be the last soldier killed in a war that they know will be lost because of moronic decisions made by politicians. Once again, history repeats itself.

I believe you are missing the most dangerous component of This extremely inept withdrawal from Afghanistan. This has the potential of creating the largest hostage situation in modern history. Our troops are stuck at the airbase. There are thousands of lives at risk of those desperate to leave spread out all over this city with a population of over 4 million; not to mention throughout the country. This is the problem.

How smoothly now this man is shifting the blame to the past govt, while as a matter of fact its him who failed at humanity and basic politics!
Max Norton
Max Norton:
The Afghanistan withdrawal should of been like Korea. Keep some forces in the country regardless in times of peace or not. Continue to use the country as a strategic base and training facility to guarantee Afghanistan’s independence. 5,000-10,000 NATO troops would of been sufficient enough to keep the Taliban at bay. Such a waste. My heart goes out to all the Veterans who served there.
Somebody please save Afghanistan 🙏

It’s a combination of both Afghan and United States mistakes. The Afghan government thought US would keep its troops for an indefinite time and they used this opportunity to pocket wealth. Most of Afghan officials who were in government didn’t live most of their lives in Afghanistan when this country was destroyed by many wars and turmoil, instead, they were living in US or Europe; moreover, US chose these officials to make assure of their own political gain not Afghanistan nation. Also, US didn’t do a good job in destroying Taliban for the past at least 20 years and now things got complicated. This will be the worst legacy of Biden’s presidency.

Its time to reform and audit all our interactions in afghanistan going back to the begining of the invasion.. It is time to look at reforming all our doctrine. If a republic can fall to tribal groups... We need republic 2.0. Something stronger and more reformed. If this doesnt result into a complete audit into every project in afghanistan something is wrong.
