When Afghanistan fell to the Taliban shortly after the US’s withdrawal from the nation, President Biden told the nation that he believed America had lost sight of its goal in Afghanistan. The President believed America started “nation-building” when it should not have. Former US diplomat Keith Mines, who worked on those nation-building efforts in Afghanistan and other coutnries, has written a memoir of his work called “Why Nation Building Matters.” (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue)
