Davis, Hoh and Sjursen Reflect on the War in Afghanistan – Source – Scott Horton Show (12/16/2019)

Daniel Davis, Matthew Hoh, and Danny Sjursen reflect on America’s war in Afghanistan on The Scott Horton Show in light of the Washington Post’s publishing of a trove of formerly confidential documents on the war. The report, which is being hailed as this generations Pentagon Papers, details the ways officials in the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations have lied about the progress being made in Afghanistan and the need to keep troops there. Even though lots of people like Davis, Hoh, and Sjursen have been speaking out for years about America’s forever wars, they say that it’s embarrassing for top brass to admit that lower level officers could see strategic failures that the war planners could not—and so voices like theirs mostly just don’t get heard.
