The Blame Game Continues Without Considering 20 Years of Disastrous Decisions
We begin with the media’s blame game piling on about the chaos at the Kabul airport often featuring pundits who supported the disastrous 20 year preface to today’s TV images in which politicians, pundits and military experts kept offering up what Einstein considered a definition of insanity in doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome. Joining us is David Rothkopf, a contributing columnist at USA TODAY and The Daily Beast and producer of the podcasts National Security Magazine and Deep State Radio which Rothkopf hosts. We discuss his article at The Daily Beast, “Biden Insiders: Our Afghanistan Exit is a Part of a Much Bigger Reset” and assess why many Democrats are buying into Republican arguments that blame Biden without considering decisions made over the last 20 years. History indicates that debacles like the exit from Saigon have a way of coming up with surprise endings as Vietnam today is with its market economy and booming tourist trade. Meanwhile the current blame game could serve as a distraction from the threat to American democracy that Republicans pose along with the existential threat to the planet from climate change.
