Generals Testimony Exposed Biden Lied About Afghanistan Exit

Testimony from General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General Kenneth McKenzie Jr. who heads the military’s Central Command exposed lies from President Biden about the Afghanistan exit.

During testimony in the Senate, the generals said they advised Biden to keep just over a couple of thousand troops in Afghanistan to keep the country’s government from falling apart.

The testimony directly conflicts with comments made by Biden on ABC News.

In August, Biden told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos that “no one” recommended he keep at least 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.

Here is the ABC News transcript:

STEPHANOPOULOS: But your top military advisors warned against withdrawing on this timeline. They wanted you to keep about 2,500 troops.

BIDEN: No, they didn’t. It was split. Tha– that wasn’t true. That wasn’t true.

STEPHANOPOULOS: They didn’t tell you that they wanted troops to stay?

BIDEN: No. Not at — not in terms of whether we were going to get out in a timeframe all troops. They didn’t argue against that.

Here is a video clip that shows Biden’s statements on ABC News and a clip of the testimony.

Biden also said he would not pull the troops out until all Americans left Afghanistan.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) asked the generals about the conflict between Biden’s statements and their recommendations.

It’s clear, Biden did not take the advice of his military advisers and making matters worse, he lied to the nation about the recommendations he received.

The testimony is devastating to Biden and it shows his poor decision making and judgement is responsible for the short-term and long-term disastrous consequences over the botched exit from Afghanistan.

Biden’s approval is dropping and this week’s revelations will likely drive it down further.
