A blockbuster from the Washington Post:

A confidential trove of government documents obtained by The Washington Post reveals that senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.

Reminiscent of the Pentagon Papers, isn’t it?


On the other hand, the failure by outside forces to pacify Afghanistan has more or less been obvious for centuries, hasn’t it?
