This national security establishment created the Taliban in the first place, exploited 911 as a false pretext to invade Afghanistan when bin Laden wasn’t even in Afghanistan, stayed there for 10 years after the death of bin Laden for no other apparent reason than protecting the CIA’s control of the opium trade, turned the place into a hellhole failed narco state, and when it all collapses into dust they turn around and say, “Oh, no!

The deaths have aroused a lot of debate and finger-pointing about why the SF unit was ambushed.
