Flag Officers 4 America

Nearly two dozen Republicans in Congress have called for “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden to resign or be removed from office for his shameful and unnecessarily disastrous retreat from Afghanistan. And according to a group of 87 retired United States military generals and admirals, Biden is not the only person who should resign. On August 31, these flag officers posted an open letter online calling for the resignation of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.

“The retired flag officers signing this letter are calling for the resignation and retirement of the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) based on negligence in performing their duties primarily involving events surrounding the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. As principal military advisers to the president, the secretary and chairman should have recommended against this dangerous withdrawal in the strongest possible terms. If they did not do everything within their authority to stop the hasty withdrawal, they should resign. Conversely, if they did do everything within their ability to persuade the president to not hastily exit the country without ensuring the safety of our citizens and Afghans loyal to America, then they should have resigned in protest as a matter of conscience and public statement.”
