Sharon, as always, thanks for reading the piece.

I agree that we do not yet know all of the facts about why the wirthdrawal was conducted how it was. I continue to believe it could have, and should have, been conducted better. The image of people falling out of the transport plane taking off from Kabul will stay with me foreover.

In any case, I hope we do learn more about what happened. From what we know right now, it appears major misjudgments were made.
