On Sunday night MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan gave a one minute tongue lashing to the journalists, hawkish politicians, and defense industry-funded ex-military officials who are currently denouncing the ongoing U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan after playing an integral role in launching—and lying on behalf of—the catastrophic 20-year war that set the stage for the chaotic departure.

Our newspaper op-ed pages, our TV screens are filled with people who got it wrong still trying to lecture the rest of us about what should happen now in Afghanistan.
There are the journalists, people in my industry, who never covered Afghanistan, never talked about it, helped make it the forgotten war all these years, now expressing outrage over the ending of it. The top U.S. generals and intelligence officials who falsely told us year after year that we were turning the corner in Afghanistan, that we were winning the war against the Taliban and building an amazing Afghan army and a democratic government, even now still insisting we stay just a bit longer.

The Bush administration officials who got us into this mess in the first place, the Trump administration officials who signed the damn deal in Doha with the Taliban, both trying to blame it all on Joe Biden.
