  1. The real challenge though is that the ANA grew so quickly that insufficient attention was paid to infiltration by the Taliban. A large number of Americans died because this was not done correctly and, when this was pointed out to Caldwell, et al in country, he and his staff suppressed the information and marginalized those who brought it to them.

  2. Considering the author’s absolutely dismal performance while in the USG on any matter relating to US Defense policy, and his utter ignorance of the Near East, matched only by his utterly unwarranted self-confidence, why should we listen to anything he has to say?

    “She does not seem to be someone who would comfortably let that war be lost.”

    However, current policy seems to be to lose that war as comfortably as possible.
