We Are All Afghans Now

From Jake Tapper at ABC, yesterday:

"What we fail to understand was that the Afghan people largely wanted to be left alone and they hate their government, in many cases, as much as they hate the insurgents. And when we went to them and said, 'Ah, we're coming here to help bring your government to you.' They said, 'Whoa we don't want out [sic] government!'"

All the Afghans wanted, says Chandrasekaran, was to be left alone, "and we didn't get that."
Imagine that.
