Congressman Reveals Truth on Afghanistan

Congressman Ken Buck revealed that the situation in Afghanistan isn’t what the generals are portraying it as. Breitbart reports:

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told Breitbart News recently that U.S. military generals tell him and other members of Congress that Afghanistan is a “stalemate.”

“The generals speak to us without any political agenda, and so we get a very clear picture from the generals that we won’t get from the civilian side, and I’ve been here with the Obama administration and the Trump administration,” he said in a brief interview after speaking at a foreign policy conference last Thursday.

Asked what generals say about Afghanistan, he responded, “I think the best assessment that we get is it is a stalemate right now.”

That remark — though not attributed to specific generals — contrasts with more optimistic public statements that the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan is working to bring the Taliban to the negotiation table.

This is a grim situation, and Afghanistan could end up being a defeat on par with Vietnam.
