As Gen. Robert E. Lee rode about the Gettysburg battlefield after the Southern debacle, ordering his troops to retreat, he said again and again: “It’s all my fault.” “The blame is mine.” “All this has been my fault. It is I who have lost this fight, and you must help me out of it the best way you can.”
We don’t see such responsibility today. So get ready: In the debris of Afghanistan, it’s — ta-da! — finger-pointing season.
