We won’t name him because he deleted his tweet and sincerely apologized, but someone asked Joey Jones the other day if “he’d be willing to go and fight” in Afghanistan after Jones reacted to the suicide bombing that killed 13 U.S. service members. Obviously, Jones did go and fight in Afghanistan and lost his legs to an IED.

Jones must have been watching today when CENTCOM Gen. Kenneth McKenzie officially declared the end of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan. They weren’t able to get out every American who wanted to get out, estimating there were “hundreds,” but he did say the Taliban was “helpful” as well as pragmatic and businesslike.

Chalk up Jones among those not celebrating as the last American planes take off from the airport in Kabul.

And now, as McKenzie said, we move on to the “diplomatic sequel” to get those remaining Americans out.
