Those of us who were dealing with the facts of Afghanistan - that they
don't have American maintenance locally, that many of their police and
military haven't been paid for a while, et cetera - saw it coming.  These
facts were either masked in reports to, or ignored by, the upper reaches of
the administration for much of the past 20 years.

Now… we face a hostage situation worse than the one in Iran 40 yrs ago.

Those Americans who are still there, either did not want to leave or were
ordered to stay (e.g. soldiers).  They're hardly hostages.
