The Road to the Fall of Kabul, with Jerry Dunleavy - on Midrats
two years on
We are two years since the greatest national humiliation since the Fall of Saigon almost half a century ago.
The negotiated surrender of Afghanistan to the Taliban, retreat to Kabul, and withdraw from Kabul under the grace of our enemy in the summer of 2021 remains a mostly untold story. Partially is it from the attention given to the Russo-Ukrainian War that started six months later, but it seems more a byproduct of disinterest by most of our press who seem to want to discuss almost anything else.
Not any more. In to that gap is a superb book by our guest today from 5-6pm Eastern will be Jerry Dunleavy, co-authored with James Hasson; Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End
If you want to know the road to the last plane out of Kabul, this is your book.
