Biden may bloviate about the success in Afghanistan, but a number of retired military leaders who have far more of a clue than Biden are now openly calling for the resignation of Biden’s top advisors.
These advisors include Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; Lloyd Austin, the Secretary of Defense; Anthony Blinken, the Secretary of State; Jake Sullivan, the National Security Advisor.
Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Keith Kellogg, a Fox News contributor who served as former acting national security adviser to President Trump, raises very salient points regarding why resignations for these men are being called for.
“I think it’s very fair to ask for accountability for senior leaders, and that includes the military leaders as well as the national security advisor and the secretary of state. Somebody needs to be held accountable …
I think it’s up to them to resign. If not, I think the president should remove them. It would help the American people if he changed out his national security team because we don’t know what ground truth is.” [Source: Fox News]
It would be wonderful if Biden were to remove them, though that would also require Biden making his own decisions, and it appears fairly clear that he’s done little of that since taking office.
Biden also claimed that the Joint Chiefs and all commanders on the ground “unanimously” agreed to end the airlift mission as it was planned, which drew a rather wry response from Kellogg.
“If it was unanimous, that means all of them are accountable for the action. If they all thought it was a good idea and it’s a bad idea, then maybe they should all leave.” [Source: Fox News]
Rep. Ronny Jackson, who has long called into question Biden’s mental fortitude, also stresses the importance of removing rather out-of-it military leaders from the Biden administration, giving the clear harm that has been caused.
“I am a firm believer that those in charge who are given the authority to make decisions should also accept responsibility for their actions when things don’t go as planned … They all had a role in this failure … Everyone who was a yes-man for Biden and played a part in this incompetence needs to take responsibility and resign.” [Source: Fox News]
One of the most despicable aspects of the entire operation includes the fact that Americans were left behind, which one unnamed White House official remains horrified by.
“I am absolutely appalled and literally horrified we left Americans there … It was a hostage rescue of thousands of Americans in the guise of a NEO [noncombatant evacuation operations], and we have failed that no-fail mission.” [Source: Fox News]
Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William “Jerry” Boykin shares the horror of the White House official, noting that any mission that leaves behind a single American could never be considered a major success.
“What’s really troublesome and almost frightening to know is that we have a commander in chief who does not see the imperative of bringing the Americans home … That’s a longstanding ethos, not just of the military, but of America … That is meaningless to him.” [Source: Fox News]
On his part, Biden continues to brag about airlifting 120,000 individuals out of Kabul, claiming that he achieved one of the “biggest airlifts in history.”
However, in a July 8 press conference, however, Biden claimed that no such airlifts would take place.
“The Taliban is not the south—the North Vietnamese army. They’re not—they’re not remotely comparable in terms of capability. There’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of a embassy in the—of the United States from Afghanistan. It is not at all comparable.” [Source: Newsweek]
Such consistency … not.
No wonder over half of Americans are currently calling for Biden’s resignation, but it is doubtful he will listen …
