The many US blunders that contributed to looming disaster in Afghanistan

On Friday, the last US soldiers left Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, which was once home to tens of thousands of American troops.

An additional 7,000 NATO troops are pulling out, as well as approximately 6,000 American contractors, some of whom have been critical to maintaining the helicopters and planes of the Afghan air force. With only 650 US troops remaining to guard the US embassy in Kabul, the United States is leaving the Afghan government to fend for itself against Taliban forces.

The headline in Saturday's New York Times trumpeted, "US departs last Afghanistan base, effectively ending 20 years of war." But this headline is a classic example of the misguided idea that withdrawing American troops will usher in peace.
