By Breitbart. The White House said Friday that President Joe Biden still had confidence in his generals and in Secretary of State Tony Blinken after their disastrous performance in Afghanistan.
“Yes, he does,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki replied when asked by reporters during the daily briefing if the president had confidence in Secretary of State Tony Blinken. . .
Psaki bristled when asked to respond to the articles of impeachment.
“I have no response on a day where we are still honoring the lives of men and women in the military who were lost yesterday,” she said.
Psaki also dismissed questions about whether the president felt he received faulty advice from his generals, and whether he wanted any of them to resign. (Read more from “White House: Biden Not Firing Any Generals for Afghan Disaster” HERE)
Someone Has Been Fired Over Afghanistan and It Isn’t the Generals
By Townhall. As Julio reported Friday morning, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller risked his career by speaking out against military leadership’s disastrous handling of Afghanistan. . .
“To all my friends across the social networks. I have been relieved for cause based on a lack of trust and confidence as of 14:30 today, My chain of command is doing exactly what I would do… if I were in their shoes. I appreciate the opportunities AITB command provided. To all the news agencies asking for interviews… I will not be making any statements other than what’s on my social platforms until I exit the Marine Corps,” Scheller wrote in a Facebook post. “America has many issues… but it’s my home… it’s where my three sons will become men. America is still the light shining in a fog of chaos. When my Marine Corps career comes to an end, I look forward to a new beginning. My life’s purpose is to make America the most lethal and effective foreign diplomacy instrument. While my days of hand to hand violence may be ending…I see a new light on the horizon. Semper.” (Read more from “Someone Has Been Fired Over Afghanistan and It Isn’t the Generals” HERE)
‘I Am Willing To Throw It All Away to … Demand Accountability’: 17-Year Marine Veteran Loses Career After Viral Video
By Daily Caller. Marine battalion commander Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller said in a video that he was willing to “throw” away his military career as he demanded accountability from senior leaders over the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“People are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying ‘we messed this up,” Scheller said in the video posted Thursday on Facebook and LinkedIn that has since gone viral. The comments were noted by Task and Purpose.
“If an O-5 battalion commander has the simplest live fire incident, EO complaint. Boom. Fired,” he added. “But we have a secretary of defense that testified to Congress in May that the Afghan National Security Forces could withstand the Taliban advance. We have Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs — who the commandant is a member of that — who’s supposed to advise on military policy. We have a Marine combatant commander. All of these people are supposed to advise.”
“I’m not saying we’ve got to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am saying: Did any of you throw your rank on the table and say ‘hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone,’” the 17-year Marine veteran said.
