In a new column, @IgnatiusPost writes on Afghanistan: "The United States has spent so much blood and treasure here that the one unforgivable mistake would be to leave without a clear counterterrorism strategy to prevent our ever having to return."

All of this is especially off-base coming from a former DOD official. @AmberSmithUSA , I know you're probably exaggerating for effect. But it doesn't make what you're saying true or accurate. Media outlets with bureaus in Kabul still include NYT, WaPo, WSJ, Reuters, AFP, etc.
