“Why the ‘mother of all bombs’ and why now?" CNN
Peter Bergen reports that the U.S. military dropped a Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb on an ISIS cave in Eastern Afghanistan. Bergen argues that the U.S. military should make a public statement saying that the U.S. military will have a continued presence in and not abandon Afghanistan. Bergen thinks that a U.S. military presence will contribute to the stability of the country and reduce the influence and spread of ISIS and the Taliban.
