Tuesday, the U.S. navy’s three high generals testified on the Senate Armed Services Committee concerning the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. Secretary of Defense General Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley, and the pinnacle of the U.S. Central Command General Franklin McKenzie, have been like three little youngsters who put their fingers over their eyes, ears, and mouths – see no evil, hear no evil, converse no evil.  

The generals insisted they did nothing incorrect, they bore no accountability for what occurred. They deflected, bobbed, weaved and tried to spin probably the most important navy disasters into U.S. navy historical past as an ideal success.  

Nothing was their fault! It was the incompetent Afghan navy! It was the corrupt Afghan president! It was the climate! 

By the time the generals have been completed, they even threw President Joe Biden below the bus.

All three navy leaders claimed they suggested Biden, in individual, {that a} sudden and full withdrawal would result in the speedy collapse of the Afghan navy and authorities.  Yet President Biden has mentioned that each one his generals agreed in his withdrawal plans. He was simply finishing up their suggestions.

That simply doesn’t sq. — both the generals are mendacity or the president is.   

But don’t maintain your breath that anybody will take accountability or be held to account for probably the most shambolic and shameful occasions in fashionable American navy historical past. 

MILLEY SAYS RESIGNING WOULD BE ‘INCREDIBLE ACT OF POLITICAL DEFIANCE,’ UNDER COTTON PRESSURE

These three generals, over time and in different positions, trotted as much as Capitol Hill yr after yr telling us that victory in Afghanistan was proper across the nook, that each one they wanted was a number of billion {dollars} extra, a number of extra months, a number of thousand extra troops. 

If they knew it might finish this badly, why didn’t they inform us years in the past?

If their motives are so pure, why can we anticipate them to inevitably take off their uniforms and take profitable positions with protection contractors contained in the Beltway, or turn out to be protection lobbyists on Okay Street? 

Why did Gen. Milley spend hours with authors like Bob Woodward and varied reporters spinning himself as a superb strategist and politically appropriate soldier as an alternative of crafting an Afghanistan withdrawal plan that may save American lives and stop the rise of a brilliant armed terrorist regime?

Scheller is behind bars for talking the reality, whereas America’s high three generals spin failure as success and get off scot free. 

The individuals accountable for the Afghanistan fiasco – the generals, the politicians, the civilian leaders – won’t ever be held accountable.

For many years they pushed a struggle they knew we couldn’t win. They did not create a stand-alone Afghan navy or construct a contemporary society. 

When it got here time to go away, they have been virtually criminally incompetent. 

In in the long run, they deserted 1000’s of Americans behind enemy strains.
