Factions within the Biden administration are embroiled in a blame game over why the US government didn’t act sooner to withdraw American citizens and Afghans who helped the US over two decades of war, leading to a rushed and dangerous evacuation.
In an exclusive television interview with Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin, General Mark Milley said that one of the “lessons learned” from the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was the pitfalls realized in the Afghan security forces.
“The Army itself – the army and the police forces were a mirror image in many ways – and we created and developed forces that looked like Western forces,” Milley explained. “I think one of the big lessons learned here is maybe those forces were not designed appropriately for the type of mission.”
The truth is Milley lied and all his statements were not true. Griffin failed to add that there are transcripts of calls between Milley and Afghan President Ghani that tell a different story. And according to the flow of the call, Milley asking Ghani to hide the fact that things were collapsing in Afghanistan. Milley knew it. This was no surprise!
Though there was chaos the first day of the withdrawal, Milley explains that everything settled down the next day.
A massive failure like this resulting in loss of lives (including) American soldiers—no consequences
Yet, if Miley says the N word he’ll be cancelled tomorrow
This is what a stupid country with stupid priorities looks like https://t.co/PZXXpchgF2

“From a military planning standpoint, those plans were done in detail,” Milley explained. Who knows what kinds of details Milley is talking about. They must’ve forgotten the rudimentary details because last I checked to leave U.S. military equipment on the ground for the Taliban to take, and stranding thousands of U.S. citizens in a country being taken over by people hostile to us does not sound like everything went according to plan.
This is only the latest controversial statement to come out of Milley, who is garnering a negative reputation among the American people after his comments this summer. He said he wanted to understand “white rage.”
