William McGurn: A Taliban 9/11

What on earth will Joe Biden say this Sept. 11?

We know what he planned to say. He hoped to use the 20th anniversary to proclaim himself the president who had succeeded in doing what none of his predecessors—George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump—could: end the “endless war” in Afghanistan. The purpose of the artificial deadline was to provide Mr. Biden a dramatic backdrop for the speech he wanted to give.

The bungled exit has scuttled that plan. Worse, it has forever surrendered 9/11 to the Islamist fundamentalists. It is now what they meant it to be in 2001: their day of victory.

Read the whole excellent thing.

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe it is better to be unvaccinated and free than to be a slave. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a better form of economics. I believe my Springfield Hellcat is the best American-made high-capacity compact 9mm. I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
