Live@Midday Thursday: Buchanan and Manning on Afghanistan – Intelligence Failures a Prelude to a Taliban Takeover

Article sponsored by NewzEngine.com

A View from Afar: Selwyn Manning and Paul Buchanan will present this week’s podcast, A View from Afar, LIVE at midday Thursday where they will analyse the crisis, the tragedy, unfolding in Afghanistan, including an apparent intelligence failure.

Unanswered questions, to be considered, include:

  • Why were United States intelligence unable to predict how poised and ready the Taliban were?
  • How did the Taliban prepare to take every province, every city in Afghanistan, and keep their readiness a secret while they waited for the final phase of the US-led withdrawal to begin?
  • What should we make of the Taliban leadership? Should we be reassured or concerned at the Taliban’s words of transition?
  • And, has United States president Joe Biden damaged his reputation beyond repair, in justifying the method of the US’s withdrawal in a speech laced with a cold indifference toward the human carnage that unfolded at Kabul airport?
