I watched this episode only a couple of weeks after it was produced and it was already obsolete — in that they were shocked that the Taliban were advancing so quicklly, but they disagreed as to whether Kabul would fall. There was general agreement that the war would go on for years. In fact, the president of the country fled and the Taliban took over within a day. They own the country now. There may be some resistance here or there but I don’t think anyone would predict that it will be a war sustained over many years.
