Just over two years have passed since the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan that saw a quick Taliban takeover and the death of 13 Marines. The images of refugees clinging to the wings of planes taking off from the Kabul International Airport still encapsulate the fateful withdrawal.
Ben sits down with a Justice Department Correspondent for the Washington Examiner and helps to lead the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s investigation into the Afghanistan withdrawal, Jerry Dunleavy. They discuss his new book, Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End, which reveals shocking new details about the botched withdrawal, including some of the baffling reasons as to why the Biden Administration was not prepared for a Taliban takeover.
Later, Ben breaks down the recent strife of labor force protests and strikes across the country this summer.
