The 12th of September Inauguration

Fred Kagan, arguing in the Wall Street Journal for an eternal US military presence in Afghanistan --

Politicians on both sides of the aisle can speechify and expound arguments about how we are winning and losing simultaneously, and how, either way, we should leave now. They may persuade themselves and the American people. But they will be just as wrong as George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton were to ignore Afghanistan in the 1990s, to our great pain and suffering.

Wasn't some other guy President in the 8 months leading up to 9/11?
