The War in Afghanistan Imitates Chevy Chase

by

Jake Tapper tweeted:

IG: Pentagon “moving forward with a $771.8 M purchase of aircraft even though the Afghans lack the capacity to operate and maintain them”

Which reminded me of a scene from the Chevy Chase movie Deal of the Century where Chase’s character, an international arms dealer, describes selling fighter jets to some nation without pilots who roll the planes down a mountain into the enemy. 

When Chevy Chase movies come true, it’s time to rethink our military strategy, I think.
