7. call me crazy but I feel like Trump set this up

It feels engineered to get us out of Afghanistan w/Biden taken the political fallout.

The Taliban float in there with no warning, no shots fired? No resistance from us or the Afghan army? All the persons w/something to lose paid to stand down or drift away safely? I've even heard Taliban leadership was "cleaned" of its crazier elements so that there'd be minimal reprisal bloodshed. They're interacting with the world press at a level I never would have imagined--even taking zingers at Facebook "censorship" (what we correctly recognize as the necessary act of blocking dangerous misinformation by privately owned businesses).

I know that's a lot to imagine but I felt like the same thing occurred with Carter and Iran. High stakes political games being played with our troops and the Afghan people. Thankfully the body count so far is greatly lower than I would have anticipated.
