With the Afghanistan withdrawal being viewed by most on both sides of the political aisle as having been chaotic and reckless, the number of calls for President Joe Biden to admit his failure have continued to increase.
Now, even retired U.S. Generals and Admirals are weighing in. (Story continues below.)
Nearly 90 U.S. Generals signed a letter calling on Biden to resign the presidency after his handling of the withdrawal left 13 U.S. service members dead, many more Afghans killed and Americans stranded in the country unable to leave.
“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 letter reads.
The letter goes on to address Biden’s top advisors, saying Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Austin Lloyd should resign.
“The retired Flag Officers signing this letter are calling for the resignation and retirement of the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) based on negligence in performing their duties primarily involving events surrounding the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan,” the letter says.
‘[I]f they did do everything within their ability to persuade the CINC/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,” the letter adds.
The criticism for Biden has continued to add up. He was blasted earlier this week for checking his watch during a ceremony for soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
“Many of us remember Pres Bush 41 checking his watch during a debate and how awful it looked (even though we all felt same way about that debate.)” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said on Twitter. “But this is shocking and will be remembered.”
