The Taliban believes passionately in its own worldview. The US did not really believe in the democratic virtues it espoused, didn't tell the truth, wasn't committed to preventing corruption. Cognitive dissonance was policy. https://t.co/gFg4YKY9zI via @nybooks @fotoole

@fotoole Brilliant book, Fintan. I was lucky enough to narrate it. I’ve already promised a few copies to friends and family. Hoping it’s read (and listened to) far and wide.

Terrific essay by @fotoole in @nybooks on "The Lie of Nation Building" in Afghanistan and how it says more about our flawed democracy and government than theirs. https://t.co/JaxgszY97W

Another brilliant, searing piece of commentary from @fotoole. If you read one thing on the lessons of the #US withdrawal from #Afghanistan, make it this. https://t.co/xRQQ2Vdl2E

From the first few lines of this article, I can tell @fotoole hit the bull's eye, yet again. The problem isn't democracy and clean government in Afghanistan, the problem is those values at home. https://t.co/7FnFS6YdUw

It’s a long season.
“Critics of the war argued that the US could not create a polity in its own image on the far side of the world. The tragic truth is that in many ways it did exactly that.” https://t.co/yvUHisqPbI

@fotoole @IrishTimes Getting money into the pockets of households below the poverty line is exactly the approach taken by our advice to DfC on an anti-poverty strategy https://t.co/QCfMvcZP4Q

Rudy rolled into the 9/11 dinner drunk out of his mind tonight. Here he is giving his Queen Elisabeth impression, and assuring the audience he was never with a young girl and Prince Andrew.
