“The fact that everything collapsed so quickly to me vindicates Biden's decision,” Jeet Heer says on this week's second episode of The New Abnormal. “If you read the Afghanistan Papers, none of what's happening is shocking.

Also joining the podcast is The Washington Post's Greg Sargent, who in large part agreed with Heer. “This is kind of a real disastrous mess, but I think it probably was inevitable given all the failures that have led up to this point,” Sargent says. “And there's probably no neat and tidy way to do this.

All the explanations for Donald Trump becoming president “seem to just sort of gloss over the fact that for the past 20 years, this country has been continuously at war,” Ackerman tells Jesse. That enemy was never precisely defined, though it ultimately was radical Islam or even Islam itself— ”which opened the door for a really broad series of authoritarian possibilities."
