Top generals have testified in front of the Senate this week and what they revealed is bad news for Biden.
General Milley Mark Milley and Central Command’s General Kenneth McKenzie both stated under oath that they warned Biden of the potential for a disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan.
Here’s the thing though.
Biden said the opposite.
In an interview with ABC News shortly after the botched withdrawal, President Biden was asked if anyone in his administration or military warned against his withdrawal or encouraged him to keep forces on the ground.
Biden said then that “No, they didn’t.”
McKenzie seems to disagree.
He testified to say “I recommended that we maintain 2,500 troops in Afghanistan… I also have a view that the withdrawal of those forces would lead inevitably to the collapse of the Afghan military forces and eventually the Afghan government.”
Similarly, Milley said he believed “we should keep a steady state of 2,500 and it could bounce up to 3,500, maybe, something like that, in order to move toward a negotiated solution.”
When Senator Tom Cotton pushed him on this issue, General Milley admitted that Biden did not even ask for this assessment until August 25th. By that time, Afghanistan was already under full Taliban control.
If ever there was an impeachable offense, this might be it.
Biden didn’t just disregard the opinion of the military – he refused to seek it entirely.
And the result is 13 dead servicemembers and America becoming an embarrassing international disgrace.
Draft the articles now. This guy has got to go.
