46. “Be honest, and fulfill your commitments…”

Jessica and Butch take on the crisis in Afghanistan. (Ok… when we say “take it on” we don’t mean actually… doing anything about it, but talking about it for almost exactly an hour.)

What it boils down to Butch on Afghanistan is that we’ve lost honor in the world by not fulfilling our commitments to the people that we’ve made promises to for almost a generation. Jessica seems to think there is more to this; there are some things going on behind the scenes that we don’t understand. Other players, other stakeholders are moving the pieces behind the scenes and Joe Biden is just along for the ride. To Butch the decision, and its execution, was just a matter of ego. Time will (hopefully) tell.
