7/31/20 Daniel Davis on Afghanistan, Germany and China

Daniel Davis talks about the questionable Russian bounties story that is being used as an excuse to stop President Trump from pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan. Never mind the fact that America’s intelligence agencies have come out to publicly disavow the story, the internal logic summoned by those opposed to withdrawal is inconsistent—if American troops really are in harm’s way in Afghanistan because of Russian bounties, wouldn’t the natural move be to pull them out even faster? Davis is adamant that the war in Afghanistan has for all intents and purposes already been lost, and the sooner the U.S. can withdraw, the better. Scott and Davis also discuss American troops in Germany and U.S.-China relations.
