U.S. General Mark Milley: No Intelligence
Suggested Collapse Within 11 Days

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 8/18/2021 5:56:22 PM

Top U.S. General Mark Milley stated Wednesday “There was nothing that I or anyone else saw that indicated a collapse of this [Afghan] army and this government in 11 days.”Milley, who has been very concerned about a lack of wokeness in the military as of late, said in a prepared statement that intelligence assessments revealed the quickly approaching collapse of the Afghan U.S.-backed government was only a possibility, but those assessments ranged from weeks to months to even years following America’s absence.“Right now, we have to focus on this mission because we have soldiers at risk,” Milley said,

When evacuation starts with the crew, there will be bedlam in steerage. What we are watching now is the tragic scene of passengers in the icy water trying desperately to get to a lifeboat. An orderly evacuation would have started with civilians months ago.

Well, General, those were YOUR assets (army, intelligence, etc.) That were in control of most of the country and SHOULD have been in a first-hand position to make those evaluations. It's a complete failure of your command.

Milley reminds me of the buffoon generals in North Korea who are festooned with medals and have not seen enemy action or won any wars! If this fool did not see the Afghanistan army collapse coming then he has absolutely no business as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs! Leaving billions of dollars in equipment with no plans to evacuate thousands of civilians is dereliction of duty and a courts marshal offense! A decent soldier would resign in disgrace! This political animal will stay on you can be sure!

This pus bag bugged out with his troops, leaving 10,000+ US civilian citizens and billions of arms, weaponry, and materiel behind. They just bugged out of Bagram after midnight, shutting off the power, and didn’t even advise the Afghan Army they were leaving. The Afghans didn’t know the Americans left for several hours, and looters walked off with whatever they wanted. Leavenworth is too good for Milley. A firing squad is justified.

When President Trump was still in office, there was the riot in Lafayette Park across from the White House, in which part of St. John's Church was burnt. Trump later walked with a small entourage through the park to the church, to signify that he had not turned tail and run, or hidden himself away in the basement security rooms as the Secret Service had requested. Thoroughly Cowardly Milley was with PDT on the walk through the park. When lies began about the Secret Service using tear gas to clear the park in advance, Milley believed the lies and, two days later, said he should not have accompanied his Commander-in-Chief on the walk. Watching Milley cower to media lies and false publicity, that day I lost any respect for the current Joint Chiefs. This coward wouldn't say "No" to the demented Biden, who stupidly thought the world would praise him for getting out of Afghanistan prior to the 20-year anniversary of Nine-Eleven.

Under pressure, State Dept. scraps plan

WASHINGTON—The State Department was forced to scrap a widely excoriated plan to bill US citizens $2,000 or more for their evacuation flights from Kabul.The hefty price tag drew social media outrage Thursday after it gained public notice.“In these unique circumstances, we have no intention of seeking any reimbursement from those fleeing Afghanistan,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement provided to The Post.The cost was publicly posted to a State Department website on Saturday but went largely unnoticed before it was highlighted by Politico’s military-focused newsletter Thursday.An unnamed State Department spokesman initially stood by the charge, telling Politico that “U.S. law requires that evacuation assistance

Like every national leader, the president of the United States has a prime obligation to safeguard the security and well-being of his citizens. And like his predecessor Donald Trump, President Joe Biden concluded that the presence of US troops and contractors in Afghanistan was having the opposite effect — that the American military deployment, as Biden put it on Monday, was “not in our national security interest.” Thousands of Americans had lost their lives in the course of the 20-year war since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when the Bush administration began targeting Afghanistan for harboring al-Qaeda terrorists. And Biden, inheriting

The MSM has been surprisingly unsparing in its criticism of President Biden's mishandling of the Afghanistan withdrawal. Earlier this week, for example, we noted NBC's Richard Engel giving a scathing evaluation of the fiasco, approvingly quoting a military source who said the situation is "100-times worse than Saigon."This morning, it was CNN's turn. New Day aired a report by correspondent Clarissa Ward from the Kabul airport. There, in addition to being roughly confronted by Taliban fighters, she was beseeched for advice by Afghans who had served as translators to US forces, desperate to get into the airport and out of the country.

The US Capitol was put in lockdown while police negotiated with a man in a pick-up truck demanding airstrikes in Afghanistan to 'kick the Taliban's a**' and asking to speak to Joe Biden on Thursday before surrendering to police after a five hour standoff. The man in the truck is believed to be 49-year-old Ray Roseberry from North Carolina. At 9.15am this morning, he drove his black pick-up truck onto the sidewalk outside the Library of Congress, opposite the Capitol building. Congress is in recess so no elected officials are there but there are staffers who are still working in the Capitol buildings.

More than 40 GOP senators, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), signed a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking that Durham, a former U.S. attorney, should be allowed to continue his investigation and his report released to the public.

Students at Connecticut’s Quinnipiac University will be fined up to $2,275 and lose internet access if they fail to comply with the university’s COVID-19 vaccination policies.

Students at Quinnipiac were required to submit their vaccination records by Aug. 1, according to an email obtained by The Epoch Times.

It seems that Alan Dershowitz’s ties to the Trump administration have made him persona non grata among the Martha’s Vineyard elite — including Larry David.A Page Six spy spotted the Harvard Law professor — who was once, like David, a fully paid-up member of the Democrat cool kids — bumping into the comic on the porch of the island’s picturesque convenience store and community hub Chilmark General Store, and found their exchange so bizarre that they “wrote it down to remember it.”Page Six strongly recommends that readers enjoy the following while

A Utah chemistry teacher is out of a job following a viral video showing her telling a high school class, "I hate Donald Trump" at the start of the new school year. "I hate Donald Trump. I’m gonna say it. I don’t care what y’all think. Trump sucks," the former Lehi High School teacher told her class on Tuesday, according to a video that has been viewed more than 700,000 times. The teacher was identified as Leah Kinyon, according to Fox 13, which spoke to a mother of one of the students in the class.

A few days ago, on Aug. 14, I wrote about CNN's sudden about-face on Joe Biden's performance in Afghanistan. It was a shocking, stunning change; it wasn't half-hearted stuff. The Trump-hating news site ran a devastating -- and insightful -- analysis pinning the blame for the Afghanistan fiasco squarely on Joe Biden. Prior to that, the network had carried water for him, skewed the news, and engaged in sycophancy, to the point of ending up a target of James O'Keefe. Now it's The Atlantic's turn. Just this morning they ran three bam, bam, bam commentaries that also pinned the blame for the fiasco squarely where it belonged,

Having created one crisis after another – e.g., a broken economy, a broken border, a broken energy supply and, now, a broken Afghanistan – you’d think that Biden would at least step up and lead us into some brave new Progressive future. That, though, is not how Biden rolls. Instead, he’s either played the blame game, hidden at Camp David or in Delaware, attacked Republican governors, dismissed as bagatelles the horrors in Afghanistan, and generally been weirdly disconnected.

The same mainstream media outlet that faced backlash for lamenting the death of “austere religious scholar” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is now facing backlash for drawing attention to the Taliban’s “sophisticated” use of social media.In a news report published Wednesday, The Washington Post claimed via “analysts” that the Taliban remains online and active on social media networks because they haven’t broken any of the rules.The piece might have possibly been able to evade backlash had the Post stuck to just reporting on the Taliban’s social media strategies.Instead, the Post chose to add a political twist by contrasting the Taliban’s online behavior with that of former President Donald Trump.
