PC political General Mark Milley, he of Biden praise and favor, tried to point the finger at the intelligence community for the Afghanistan disaster. He is not telling the truth and disgracing his uniform by doing it.

This writer, as a former member of the intelligence community, was personally told by active members more than a month ago that Afghanistan was going to soon fall. In fact, predictions were made of such last year and we duly reported them.


So if the word was out to minor press cogs like me, it was surely out to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. But he likely didn’t want to hear. It didn’t fit his political narrative.

Do You Think Joe Biden Should Be Investigated Along With Hunter?

FNC: “Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley denied reports that intelligence warned of rapid deterioration of the situation in Afghanistan. Milley’s remarks came as he updated the press on the situation at the Kabul airport, saying that about 4,500 U.S. troops were currently on the ground securing the airport.

The general made clear that any U.S. citizen that desires to get out of Afghanistan will have an opportunity to do so, while also promising that Afghan allies that have helped with the 20-year effort would also be afforded an opportunity to escape the country. Milley was responding to reports that intelligence had warned the security situation in Afghanistan would quickly deteriorate, with some suggesting President Joe Biden may have ignored those warnings to press ahead with his planned drawdown of forces. But the general argued that while some intelligence did predict a collapse, none indicated the pace at which the collapse would escalate.”

“There was nothing, that I or anybody else saw that indicated a collapse of this army and this government in 11 days,” Milley said at a press briefing Wednesday.


“I have previously said from this podium and in sworn testimony before Congress, that the intelligence clearly indicated multiple scenarios were possible: one of those was an outright Taliban takeover following a rapid collapse of the Afghan Security Forces and the government. Another was a civil war, and a third was a negotiated settlement,” Milley said. “However, the timeframe of a rapid collapse,’ that was widely estimates and ranged from weeks, months, and even years following our departure.” Absolutely not true. For this and his professional malfeasance, he should resign immediately.
