Letter to the Editor: Can we give a little credit?

To the Editor:

After 20 long, deadly years, the U.S. war in Afghanistan is finally over. President George W. Bush got the war started, and neither Obama nor Trump was successful in ending it.

But President Biden ends it after being in office for less than a year. Now we can rest assured that not another American soldier’s life will have to end in Afghanistan.

Some may criticize our president for the way this was all handled, noting the “disconnects” in the way the facts were presented (better known as lies), and the bad timing of many of the decisions made. But please, can we maybe, just maybe, give our president even a little credit for what he has done?
