I would like to thank The News Tribune for reporting on the horrific bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan, at the end of January.
Nearly 100 people were killed and 300 injured, and none of the TV networks reported this tragedy. It was worse than the Las Vegas sniper killings.
Just prior to this event, the Trump administration ordered 5,000 more troops to be sent to Afghanistan. On TV’s “60 Minutes,” the general in charge of American troops said they must not let Afghanistan fall. He sounded an awful lot like General Westmoreland during the Vietnam War.
Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster published the book “Dereliction of Duty,” castigating the Johnson Administration for lying to the American public that we would win the Vietnam War. He now heads the Trump military advisers saying we will stop the Taliban.
Never miss a local story.
We supported the corrupt Diem presidency in South Vietnam. The Kabul dictator is no better.
