Biden’s efforts of a haphazard withdrawal from Afghanistan raised many questions in almost all global power sectors. While Biden defended the process by every inch, the top US general, Mark Milley, unveiled Biden’s lies in Congress, suggesting that the president tried to trick Americans by manipulating facts.
During the withdrawal process, Joe Biden labeled the process an “extraordinary success.” However, Gen. Mark Milley called the process a “strategic failure,” which has busted open Biden’s propaganda in the process.
Biden’s Lies Exposed: Mark Milley’s Testimony is Enough to Shame Biden
Time and time again, Joe Biden defended the complete withdrawal from Afghanistan and insisted there was no need to keep a small force in Afghanistan.
During the withdrawal process in August, Biden reiterated in his interviews that no general advised him to keep a part of the army in Afghanistan.
However, when Gen. Mark Milley testified in front of the Congressional Armed Service Committee, he voiced that he insisted President Biden keep almost 2500 troops in Afghanistan.
This claim of the general has brought both the army and the executive branch to a crossroads. The credibility of Joe Biden is being hit badly after Milley busted Biden’s propaganda one lie after another in front of the Senators, which brought humiliation to the Democratic ranks.
Biden’s lies did not end here. Earlier, when journalists asked questions of the president whether the US withdrawal from Vietnam and Afghanistan had any similarity, Biden tried to detach both events completely.
We at Mshomi news pointed out how the US abandoned Vietnam and Afghanistan and came back hurriedly from both countries. Now, Gen. Milley has also depicted that the lesson from both wars is that we should never “Americanize the war.”
President Biden cannot go away now by saying that he did not remember if any general advised him to keep troops in the country.
The generals testified in Congress that their statements were “well-heard “by the executive branch, which depicts Biden’s hypocrisy in the withdrawal process.
Biden Will be Responsible if the Taliban Factions Attack the US Again
Now the mess of Afghanistan lies on the shoulders of Biden up to a considerable extent. While multiple presidents played their role in worsening the crisis, Biden intensified them by not relying on expert opinion and instead taking the decisions for political motives.
The generals, experts, and data scientists are all here to advise the executive branch. However, the lack of democratic practices in the White House politics has made the president ignore all of them at the same time and not rely on data anymore.
This is not just a step toward political suicide but also decries the need for democracy in the country. The US remains the vocal advocate of democracy across the globe.
In fact, one of the core purposes of the US overseas engagements in the wake of the 21st century was to bring westernized democracy to different countries.
However, back at home, the very purpose of democracy is being slaughtered by the Biden administration to satisfy the political ego. Consultation and the proper demarcation of authority are what differentiate a democracy from authoritarianism.
Mark Milley was not alone during his testimony to Congress. General Kenneth McKenzie was accompanying him and reiterated his earlier vision that he also advised the president to keep 2500 troops in Afghanistan to avert any disaster.
Now the generals had already warned the Biden administration for the upcoming disaster if the business goes as usual.
The top military leadership claimed that Al-Qaeda and other terrorist outfits are still active in the war-ravaged country and could launch a deadly terrorist attack on the United States in the upcoming 12-36 months.
This claim of the generals also busted Biden’s lies, who initially claimed that all of these organizations had been eliminated from Afghanistan.
Relying on the data, Biden must course-correct right now and take precautionary measures to avoid any attack on the US soil as warned by the generals.
If the generals’ comments remain unheard from that time, the responsibility of any unfortunate event will lie on Biden’s shoulders, and he would find no place for face-saving.
Had Biden acted in agreement with the advice of the military leadership by keeping 2500 troops in Afghanistan, the Taliban invasion would never be a possibility.
This could have saved the US from global humiliation while assisting the Americans stranded there.
