Phil Boas: How The U.S. Forgot History And Bungled Afghanistan

The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

President Biden recently made the decision that the U.S. would completely cease operations in Afghanistan, with the expectation that the Taliban wouldn’t be able to rapidly take control of the country.

But as we’ve seen over the past week or so, the Taliban has restored its dominance.

Now, President Biden is facing criticism for his approach.

In a column published over the weekend, Republic columnist Bob Robb had harsh words for Biden — but also for former President George W. Bush.

The Show spoke with the Republic’s Editorial Page Editor Phil Boas more about Robb’s column.
