Few wise persons are giving any rational advice on TV. General Barry McCaffrey is one of the few worth listening to.
General Barry McCaffrey is on point. Disregard the rest
It has been a delight listening to General Barry McCaffrey over the other charlatans. Many politicians, “journalists,” and former military brass have been “advising” President Biden to do some ridiculous things.
Some advise the President to reopen Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. McCaffrey pointed out that it would require one of the largest air assaults to do that.
Others want the one brigade at the Kabul airport to extend their stay. McCaffrey expressed how thoughtless that request would be. He said the brigade is 600 miles from the sea, 1200 miles from air support, and thousands of miles from home. In other words, it is senseless.
The general posited that one ask any recent military school graduate whether the brigade should fight or stay past August 31st. He is sure they would not do the irresponsible thing.
