An autopsy for why Donald J. Trump, the most dynamic man elected to the presidency in decades, lost in 2020…and why the GOP will keep losing (SPOILER ALERT: it’s not COVID denialism, anti-vax mania, or “Stolen Election” claims. It’s a return to fact-based politics).

In the weekend long read, Brandon J. Weichert breaks down the truth about the Afghan National Army, why they failed to stop the Taliban advance, and why the Biden Administration will not learn from these failures (and repeat them elsewhere, notably in Africa).
