Is there really any surprise in learning that the government has been lying to its citizens again?

Afghanistan is a strategic beachhead on China's doorstep. We merely need to realign our goals. We do not have to win: it is only necessary to keep the Taliban from winning. Deal with the reality of the situation: provincial tribal leaders hold the real power in Afghanistan. Let these tribal leaders manage Afghanistan and withdraw ourselves from trying to manage the country. The alternative is a massacre of Afghani civilians by the Taliban, and another massive refugee exodus to the US which does not need or want anymore Muslim immigrants.
