Is there a more incompetent agency than the US State Department?
If we look at outcomes/leaks of confidential information/partisan actions/scandals over the years the State Department is a cesspool that often appears to be serving their own and/or other country’s interests first.
They have supposedly been creating a stable government, stimulating economic development with the money we provided and making ‘friends’ for twenty years in Afghanistan. Even ignoring the obvious fact that they failed on every account how were they not at least knowledgeable enough to signal the military that the collapse was going to come this quickly?
If ever there were a group of career bureaucrats that should be fired in mass this group is at the top of the list.
Sidebar: I do realize from experience in government some employees are hard to fire but there is always a way to encourage them to 'move on’. For instance I would suggest we send those with 20 years or more of State Department service to embassies in the most backward countries in the world to rot until the day they finally retire.”
