Author’s Take

I find it very difficult to believe there are that many Americans who don’t want to leave Afghanistan.

The report about high rent prices hampering refugee resettlement would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the unintended consequences and ultimate failures of the more strident liberal policies.
