Afgetrede militêre leiers eis dat die Biden -span bedank: Milley, Austin, flits, Sullivan

“Ek dink dit is 'n leiersfout in die Withuis, sowel as in die staatsdepartement, sowel as in die DOD,” Lt. Genl. (Reg.) William “Jerry” Boykin het Woensdag in 'n onderhoud aan Fox News gesê. “I think we need to recognize it as such. I think the president has been a miserable failure on this.

Boykin said he would ask Milley, Austin, flits, and Sullivan todo the right thing and submit your resignations, preserve whatever is left of your reputation. Do the right thing and step down.

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,” Lt. Genl. (Reg.) Keith Kellogg, a Fox News contributor and former acting national security adviser to President Trump, told Fox News on Tuesday.


I think it’s up to them to resign. Indien nie, 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,” Kellogg added.

He noted that on Monday Biden gesê dit was “the unanimous recommendation of the Joint Chiefs and of all of our commanders on the ground to end our airlift mission as planned.

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,” Kellogg said.

Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, a retired U.S. Navy rear admiral, told Fox News that he has beendeeply disappointed in the leadership at the Department of Defense, leadership that is in large part responsible for the crisis we have watched unfold in Afghanistan.

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,” hy het bygevoeg.

Jackson called for Milley and Austin to resign, considering their leadership roles in the military, but he also called for Blinken and Sullivan to resign, ook.


They all had a role in this failure,” hy het gesê. “Everyone who was a yes-man for Biden and played a part in this incompetence needs to take responsibility and resign.

Jackson described himself asthoroughly disgusted by the Biden Administration’s attempt to spin what has been an unmitigated disaster as a win. Joe Biden is patting himself on the back and declaring victory as terrorists are parading around in U.S. military equipment and American citizens are trapped behind enemy lines. This administration is a disgrace.

Net so, Boykin condemned Biden for rejecting thelongstanding ethosof the military – a commitment never to leave a man behind.

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,” Boykin het Woensdag in 'n onderhoud aan Fox News gesê. “That’s a longstanding ethos, not just of the military, but of America.

That is meaningless to him,” Boykin charged.


He noted that Bidenactually stood up and said, ‘We’ll be there until we get all Americans out,’ and then he changed that.

On Tuesday in a speech on the withdrawal, the president noted that “oor 100 aan 200 Americans remain in Afghanistan with some intention to leave. … The bottom line: Ninety percent of Americans in Afghanistan who wanted to leave were able to leave.

People are left behind literally as hostages to the Taliban,” Boykin said, bitterly.

Boykin served as the Delta Force operations officer for the Iran hostage rescue attempt on April 24-25, 1980. He previously called that failed missionthe greatest disappointment of my professional career because we didn’t bring home 53 Americans.Yet Boykin said Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal is even worse than that devastating failure.

That was a devastating thing for those of us who were part of it. We carried a heavy burden for a long time and still do, but this is so far beyond that in terms of an absolute and total failure,” the retired general said.
