ISIS is like the Taliban on PCP. They aren't really a new threat and I really wonder if we just put our fingers in our ears and went "la la la la la" so we could meed the withdraw dates. With the recent blue on blue from the ANA, and the ANA's general awfulness, Afghanistan isn't fairing any better. After 10+ years, trillions of dollars and thousands of lives lost both these countries are just as bad or worse than they were before we entered. What's really infuriating is I can't recall anybody going "yeah, my bad...sorry". The closest I can think is Bush admitting that Iraq never had WMDs.
