I know this will irk you but Bannon was the person in the White House fighting against the generals in order to avoid a troop buildup. 

Doesn't irk me at all ! Indeed, apparently he and McMaster were not buds.  This being a primary point of conflict.  

Mostly I despise Bannons world view.  I think it's a dangerous throwback to early 20th century nationalism.  But hey, sometimes the blind squirrel finds a nut.  On Afghanistan, imo he's not wrong.  

Theres this movie on Netflix that just recently came out called war machine.  I thought it was pretty good.  Explores the complexity of the Afghanistan  predicament.  You should check it out.
