Military Throws Biden Under The Bus

Woke generals rat out Biden.

Like crooks racing to be the first to sell out their boss to the Feds, the leaders of America’s defense establishment took to Capitol Hill this week and snitched on Joe Biden.

Hear them tell it, they recommended an orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan. Biden vetoed them and chaos, abandonment, and surrender ensued. No honor among thieves, I guess.

Are they telling the truth? Probably. But it certainly doesn’t clear Milley of his treason with the Chinese or his loose lips with the press. He and Austin need to resign or get fired. By picking a fight with the White House like this, maybe Joe Biden will give them just that. After all, somebody needs to be scapegoated for this thing. K.T. McFarland has her say on it below.

McFarland: Tuesday, the U.S. military’s three top generals testified at the Senate Armed Services Committee about the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. Secretary of Defense General Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley, and the head of the U.S. Central Command General Franklin McKenzie, were like three little kids who put their hands over their eyes, ears, and mouths – see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

The generals insisted they did nothing wrong, they bore no responsibility for what happened. They deflected, bobbed, weaved and tried to spin one of the most significant military disasters into U.S. military history as a great success. Nothing was their fault! It was the incompetent Afghan military! It was the corrupt Afghan president! It was the weather!

By the time the generals were finished, they even threw President Joe Biden under the bus. All three military leaders claimed they advised Biden, in person, that a sudden and complete withdrawal would lead to the immediate collapse of the Afghan military and government.  Yet President Biden has said that all his generals agreed in his withdrawal plans. He was just carrying out their recommendations.

That just doesn’t square — either the generals are lying or the president is. But don’t hold your breath that anyone will take responsibility or be held to account for one of the most shambolic and shameful events in modern American military history.

These three generals, over time and in other positions, trotted up to Capitol Hill year after year telling us that victory in Afghanistan was right around the corner, that all they needed was a few billion dollars more, a few more months, a few thousand more troops. If they knew it would end this badly, why didn’t they tell us years ago?

If their motives are so pure, why can we expect them to inevitably take off their uniforms and take lucrative positions with defense contractors inside the Beltway, or become defense lobbyists on K Street? Why did Gen. Milley spend hours with authors like Bob Woodward and various reporters spinning himself as a brilliant strategist and politically correct soldier instead of crafting an Afghanistan withdrawal plan that would save American lives and prevent the rise of a super armed terrorist regime?…

There is something seriously wrong with the senior leadership of our armed forces.  They have taken a sacred, non-partisan, universally respected organization – the American military — and turned it into a woke, politically correct, media-focused, often militarily incompetent institution.

Since when is treason just a firing offense. Let a civilian get caught for treason or anything close to it.It use to be a firing squad or life in prison. Why does it change in higher ups. They are ones that it should never be tolerated.. When are they going to realize Afghans want western society wiped out? Terrorist or not.They say they come to America to escape the way things are.Yet they want America to bow to the samething.They said they wanted to escape.

So hidenbiden,is a lying,sick,pathetic,corrupt,racist,sexualpervert,senile,frail,old sockpuppet, fool,that didn’t listen to his generals, and did the afghan debacle,disaster on his own. That tells us this nincompoop, pretending to be president, is totally incompetent, even when he listens to his generals, he does his own thing. We need to remove this embarrassment, and his total cabinet of clowns, running this country into the ground,none of these incompetent, people belong in their positions, and need to be terminated immediately.

Hidenbiden,lied according to his generals, and many people died. He has continued, to lie every time he opens his pie hole, he can’t be trusted, even his own party has had their fill of this blithering,babbling,buffoon, that has scewed up everything he had his hand in. He isn’t fit to lead, he is mentally unfit to be taking any orders from, and needs to be removed for total incompetency, even his generals called him out, he needs to go.

How can anyone even believe what Biden says? The man can’t remember anything!!!!! He only babbles and stutters when he talks. He’s dumber than a rock!!!! And his memory span is 2 seconds long. How can he remember if those 3 were in agreement with him or not?

FOLKS, in my arrogant opinion this is not unexpected.
This Chief of Staff Milley is a treasonist General who should be tried for TREASON!
This Secretary of Defense Austin is out to destroy our military supremacy worldwide!
BOTH ARE SPINELESS INDIVIDUALS, IF they had a spine they would have resigned when President Biden refused to adequately secure our Citizens evacuation, our Afghan aides evacuation and the evacuation of our equipment.
The issue is CAN WE BELIEVE WHAT ARE SAYING TO CONGRESS?
Next issue is HAS THE DOD-PENTAGON FORMULATED THIS TESTIMONY AND PLEDGED LOYALTY TO GENERAL MILLEY, AGAIN? (FYI – Milley has done this before under Trump’s Presidency)
One thing is certain, these guys were to cowardly to resign but after dropping this President under the bus they will be asked to resign or be fired!

Is the notion of accountability in the equation or does foolish pride and evading the liability associated with the responsibility associated with the job description- everybody wants the lofty titles and compensation but when it comes to the end of the road on their lack of being able to do the job and things go to hell in a hand basket, they all run into their hole with their fingers pointed at everybody else but themselves

I don’t believe a word coming from this traiter’s mouth. IMO, he does Pelousy’s bidding and consorts with the Chinese, and stabs President’s in the back, to try to feather his own nest. We need better Generals.

David, I love your work. Excellent journalism in a world where journalism has been so bastardized that it is nothing more than drivel pandering to “the narrative.” They all have to go. Simple fact. Even a “wokester” can understand that incompetence is incompetence no matter how cute, warm and wiggly they are. The U.S. military needs to be reclaimed, then deployed to arrest the Biden terrorists (President, VP, Administration, and all abettors including those in the WHO, CDC, FDA, FBI, CIA, and Big Pharma). Treason and terrorism are stiff charges that levy a decisive penalty. Let’s have it. Thank you, David. Please keep up the great work.

It’s pretty clear to me and I’d bet everyone who saw the hearing . The party finally seen to be under the bus , clearly was exactly where he belonged ! This president, once again has lied to our faces on national tv for all to see . It’s too late to recount what we all believed happened any. There was never going to be a plan for withdrawal from Afghanistan from Trump to see the light of day . Regardless !
