We started the Afghan War?

From Pete Buttigieg in this past week's debate: "If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Afghanistan, from Afghanistan, it’s that the best way not to be caught up in endless war is to avoid starting one in the first place.”

It's every bit as blithering as the nonsense that comes out of Trump's mouth.

If you think that comment is on par with the ludicrous, childish, borderline-retarded comments by Trump, then I have serious doubts about your judgement.

Yes we did. Afghanistan offered to turn over bin Laden, and other Al Quaida members, and the Bush administration turned them down

But this is a moot point since we know how the wars were started and why. Quite simply, if this has to be explained to you again you have your head buried, or are a useful idiot. And Unlike the Russian asset, grifter, and coward sitting in the White House, Buttigieg actually served in that war, and knows exactly what he is saying.

Considering the gravity of the subject, absolutely. From an American perspective, 9/11 is arguably the most important historic event of the last 70 years, and certainly of the last 30. The level of ignorance Buttgieg displayed with that comment is stunning.
