Can anyone imagine there'll be a day when a US president is able to say America never should have gone to Afghanistan in the first place? Doesn't sound like Biden can.

yabut, you know - fighting them over there instead of over here! Ya ya, hindsight. Of course it was fear that drove the United States - fear of another attack by al-Qaeda, which was then firmly entrenched in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Fear of other possible terrorist attacks. Certainly the U.S. public wanted retribution. Member eyeball, perhaps your hindsight can offer up what the U.S. should have alternatively done in response to the 9/11 attacks - yes? Along with the UN and NATO response sanctioning the ISAF - what should they have also alternatively done?
