Former U.S. Generals Call For Resignation Of Secretary Of State, Joint Chiefs Of Staff Head

On August 30th, 90 retired US Generals called for US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) General Mark Milley to resign over the botch Afghanistan withdrawal.

They did so in an open letter, with their signatures included. [pdf]

The signatories, who claim membership in a group called “Flag Officers 4 America,” claim Austin and Milley “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.”

Additionally, the letter adds that if Austin and Milley fought President Biden’s pullout order with all they had they still should resign “as a matter of conscience and public statement.”

“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.”

“A fundamental principle in the military is holding those in charge responsible and accountable for their actions or inactions. There must be accountability at all levels for this tragic and avoidable debacle,” the letter further read.

The retired flag officers proposed what they felt should have happened in the withdrawal, including not rushing the pullout and not abandoning the Bagram Air Base, and American weapons and military equipment in the hands of the Taliban.

The signatories noted that, “The hasty retreat has left initial estimates at 15,000 Americans stranded in dangerous areas controlled by a brutal enemy along with 25,000 Afghan citizens who supported American forces.”

The last US flight out of Afghanistan departed from the capital city of Kabul on Monday, marking the end of the 20-year US combat mission in Afghanistan that culminated in the Taliban taking control of most of the country.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said there were still more than 200 Americans remaining in Afghanistan as of Sunday morning.

“The consequences of this disaster are enormous and will reverberate for decades beginning with the safety of Americans and Afghans who are unable to move safely to evacuation points; therefore, being de facto hostages of the Taliban at this time,” the retired flag officers wrote in Monday’s letter.

“The damage to the reputation of the United States is indescribable. We are now seen, and will be seen for many years, as an unreliable partner in any multinational agreement or operation,” the letter continued.

President Biden also faces calls to resign or be impeached as those from all political backgrounds have criticized him for his handling of the notched US withdrawal.

If said retired generals are so sure what to do now, why didn’t they do it when they were in their jobs?
