Trump Wants Out of Syria and Afghanistan. Take the Deal.

Headlines I never expected to see, part 176 in an ongoing series:

Amazing. The “blob,” as Obama folks called the foreign policy establishment toward the end of their tenure, is even stupider and more obstinate than I ever would have guessed. Do they all secretly get together and watch Fox News every afternoon, or what?

Get. Out. I don’t care if Trump is an idiot or not. If he’s offering the chance to get the hell out of Syria and Afghanistan, tell him he’s a genius and take the deal. Anyone who doesn’t sign on to this loses the privilege of mocking Glenn Greenwald for the rest of their lives.
