Kabul attacks: Marines died because of terrible planning

FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS ... to the Marines and Navy corpsman who perished in the attacks on the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. There will be more dead, on both sides, before this ends. I couldn't imagine a worse withdrawal occurring if one purposely planned to enact the course of action least likely to succeed, but here we are. A larger than platoon-sized element is no longer in the fight because of being killed in action/injured and families back home here in the United States are grieving. 

This doesn't just fall on President Joe Biden, although as commander-in-chief, it's ultimately his responsibility. This falls on the shoulders of everyone who made the decision to not only close Joint Base Bagram, but also pull out of Afghanistan in the most tactically unsound way anyone could imagine.
