The Third Quagmire

Tomorrow is the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America. We have been in Afghanistan since a month after the 9/11 attacks that emanated from there with the help of its Taliban government. Our forces, and those of our allies, soon drove the Taliban out of Kabul, but the Taliban have never been defeated.

We invaded Iraq in 2003, and some number of our troops are still there to fight the ISIS terrorists. Radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, whose troops fought U.S. troops for a decade, is — like ISIS — undefeated in Iraq.
