Major Danny Sjursen comes back on the show to discuss the killing of General Raziq in a recent “green-on-blue” attack. Sjursen explains that these killings are not new—there have been dozens throughout the war in Afghanistan—but they should be a wake-up call. If American and allied troops aren’t even safe from each other, after all, how can the U.S. hope to win a war against its enemies? Sjursen is adamant that we’ve already lost the war and we should just pull out as soon as possible without wasting any more lives.
