AMERICA AND THE WORLD
TOP-ED — “What Joe Biden and I Saw After the U.S. Invaded Afghanistan,” by NYT’s Tom Friedman: “Our leaving may be a short-term disaster, and in the longer run, who knows, maybe Afghanistan will find balance on its own, like Vietnam. Or not. I don’t know. I am as humbled and ambivalent about it today as I was 20 years ago, and I am sure that Biden is too.
“All I know for sure are: 1) We need to offer asylum to every Afghan who worked closely with us and may now be in danger. 2) Afghans are going to author their own future. 3) It is American democracy that is being eroded today by our own divisiveness, by our own hands, and unless we get that fixed we can’t help anyone — including ourselves.”
AND GRAHAM GOES NUTS — Biden probably wasn’t expecting an endorsement from Trump on his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. But that’s exactly what he got Sunday, when the former president called his successor’s decision “a wonderful and positive thing” (while adding that he should have stuck to Trump’s May 1 withdrawal deadline).
Cue Sen. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-S.C.), a top Trump ally: “With all due respect to former President Trump,” the GOP senator said in a statement Sunday, “there is nothing ‘wonderful’ or ‘positive’ about allowing safe havens and sanctuary for terrorists to reemerge in Afghanistan or see Afghanistan be drawn back into another civil war.”
— NYT reporter Annie Karni points out on Twitter that Biden is following the same advice he gave to former President BARACK OBAMA, according to the former president’s memoir, “A Promised Land.” “Listen to me boss,” Obama said Biden told him following his first national security meeting, coming within a few inches from his face. “Maybe I’ve been around this town for too long, but one thing I know is when these generals are trying to box in a new president … don’t let them jam you.”
