Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that Hong Kong – at the direction of Communist China – has withdrawn the extradition bill that sparked massive protests, but they’re still not sure this story will have a happy ending. They also pummel Bloomberg News and reporter Ben Penn for forcing the resignation of a Department of Labor appointee over an “anti-Semitic” social media post that wasn’t anti-Semitic at all. And Jim is not at all impressed with the apparent peace plan in Afghanistan, which seems to amount to little more than trusting the Taliban not to commit terrorism or harbor terrorist groups.
