Yes, President Donald Trump abandoned the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces in northern Syria in our war on terror. But let’s not forget that President Kennedy abandoned the Cuban Democratic Revolutionary Front at the Bay of Pigs in our war on communism.

Maybe the problem is not that presidents sometimes do make tremendous blunders in war.

Perhaps the problem is that presidents are able to make tremendous blunders in war. Most presidents are politicians, not trained military leaders.

Maybe it’s time to take the Commander In Chief role away from the president and give it to a trained military professional.
