"Woke" Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and leftist Chief of Staff Mark Milley must resign, say dozens of top retired military leaders.

Retired Generals and Admirals Demand Resignations Over Afghanistan Debacle

Defense Secretary General Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark Milley are being asked to resign by 87 retired generals and admirals accusing them of negligence regarding the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

The shameful and incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan by the corrupt Marxist Biden administration leaving behind hundreds of Americans and tens of thousands of loyal Afghans is a geopolitical disaster of enormous magnitude. Our top generals and entire national security officials in the White House, the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and the Secretary of State Antony Blinken, as well as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, have looked like incompetent fools.


Our allies do not trust them and worse our enemies do not fear them. Our national security and our survival as a nation are greatly at risk with so many arrogant and incompetent high-ranking officials. The entire world saw a demented President Joe Biden who is unable to govern and refuses to accept blame for the debacle in Afghanistan or even answer questions. Biden must be forced to resign by using the 25th Amendment or any other means. All these incompetent officials need to be fired.

On August 30, 2021, 87 patriotic retired generals and admirals have called on Defense Secretary General Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley to step down. Among those who signed the letter included retired Navy Rear Admiral John Poindexter, a former National Security Adviser under President Ronald Reagan; Republican Congressman from Texas Ronny Jackson, a former Navy Rear Admiral, and longtime White House physician; and retired Army Brigadier General Donald Bolduc, a Republican candidate for the Senate for New Hampshire in 2022.

The letter was released on August 30, 2021, just as the evacuation was completed and hundreds of Americans and tens of thousands loyal Afghans were left behind enemy lines. The letter is a strong denunciation over the way the evacuation was handled. Most Americans including many who voted for the demented Joe Biden now realize the corrupt Biden administration went in with no plan and had no idea how to proceed.

President Donald J. Trump had reached a condition-based agreement with the Taliban in Doha that said that the Taliban could not take any additional territory while Americans and loyal Afghans as well as the military were being evacuated. President Trump told the Taliban leader that if they violated the agreement, America armed forces will destroy them completely as he did with the Islamic State.

The letter accused Defense Secretary General Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark Milley of being responsible in the bungled evacuation and the deaths of 13 marines, soldiers, and a woman. These retired flag officers belong to a group called “Flag Officers 4 America,” said that 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.”

The letter also calls on Austin and Milley to resign for reasons of “leadership, training, and morale” and accuses them of “placing mandatory emphasis on PC-related training which is extremely divisive and harmful to unit cohesion, readiness, and war fighting capability. “Our military exists to fight and win our Nation’s wars and that must be the sole focus of our top military leaders,” the letter stated. Obviously, this refers to the Pentagon teaching communist propaganda known as Critical Race Theory to all in the Armed Forces and the military academies which says that all whites are oppressors and all minorities victims. Instead of teaching love of country, the Pentagon is teaching hatred against America and divisiveness by lying about our history.

The letter explained that 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. These individuals are now hostages of the Taliban. The death and torture of Afghans has already begun and will result in a human tragedy of major proportions. The loss of billions of dollars in advanced military equipment and supplies falling into the hands of our enemies is catastrophic.

The letter explained the following: “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. Trust in the United States is irreparably damaged.”

The letter went on to describe that the Islamic terrorists enemies had been emboldened by the show of weakness from the Biden administration and from Biden himself. There has always been a steadfast rule that you never negotiate with terrorists and Biden went far beyond that by letting the Taliban run the show. We are the greatest military power in the world and yet we let terrorists make demands of us.

General Kenneth F. McKenzie rejected the offer of Taliban’s leader Abdul Ghani Baradar to give America full control of the whole city of Kabul and the airport

General Kenneth F. McKenzie incredible rejected the offer by Taliban leader to allow America full control of Kabul and the airport. He needs to be court martialed for treason.

General Kenneth F. McKenzie incredible rejected the offer by Taliban leader to allow America full control of Kabul and the airport. He needs to be court martialed for treason.

General McKenzie is responsible, or any other individual, who may have told him to reject the offer made by the Taliban’s leader Abdul Ghani Baradar to have full control of the whole city of Kabul and the airport. If he had accepted, this would have prevented the needless deaths of 13 service members and the wounding of so many others. Additionally, the U.S. embassy and that of our allies would have had time to evacuate all documents and all Americans and loyal Afghans would have had time to leave. This is incomprehensible and shameful. General McKenzie has also spoken favorably of the barbarian Taliban as he is negotiating with them.

Rasmussen poll reveals that 52% of American voters want President Joe Biden to resign because of the catastrophic way of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan

On September 1, 2021, the Rasmussen poll indicated that 52% of American voters want President Joe Biden to “resign because of the way the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was handled,” which left 13 U.S. marines, navy, and army service members and more than 170 Afghan civilians dead. 39% disagree and 9% were unsure. An even larger majority of likely U.S. voters in the poll (60%) agreed with a call from Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to impeach the president.

Senator Graham stated that “I think Joe Biden deserves to be impeached because he’s abandoned thousands of Afghans who fought with us and he’s going to abandon some American citizens because he capitulated to the Taliban to a 31 August deadline.”

If Biden resigns or is driven out using the 25th Amendment, Vice President Kamala Harris will become president. However, according to the Rasmussen poll only 38% say Harris is qualified to assume the duties of being president. A large majority of voters (58%) view Harris as unqualified to be president, including a near majority on its own (47%) responding she is “Not At All Qualified.” according to the poll.

The party breakdown in the poll on those calling for Biden’s resignation:

  • 75% of Republicans.
  • 48% of third-party or independent voters.
  • 32% of Democrats.

The party breakdown in the poll on those “strongly” agreeing with Graham saying Biden deserves to be impeached:

  • 69% of Republicans.
  • 44% of third-party or independent voters.
  • 26% of Democrats.

The party breakdown in the poll on those who see VP Harris as at least somewhat qualified to be president:

  • Just 17% of Republicans.
  • 32% of third-party or independent voters.
  • 62% of Democrats.

Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,000 likely U.S. voters Aug. 30-31, along with field work by Pulse Opinion Research. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Retired generals and admirals question 2020 election result and Biden’s health

These patriotic retired generals and admirals who belong to the organization Flag Officers 4 America wrote another letter in May 2021 accusing the FBI and Supreme Court of ignoring “election irregularities” and casting doubt on Biden’s mental and physical condition.

The Open Letter from Retired Generals and Admirals Regarding Afghanistan:  

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 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.

What should have happened upon learning of the Commander in Chief’s (President Biden’s) plan to quickly withdraw our forces and close the important power projection base Bagram, without adequate plans and forces in place to conduct the entire operation in an orderly fashion? As principal military advisors to the CINC/President, the SECDEF and CJCS 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. Conversely, if 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 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 death and torture of Afghans has already begun and will result in a human tragedy of major proportions. The loss of billions of dollars in advanced military equipment and supplies falling into the hands of our enemies is catastrophic. 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.

Trust in the United States is irreparably damaged. Moreover, now our adversaries are emboldened to move against America due to the weakness displayed in Afghanistan. China benefits the most followed by Russia, Pakistan, Iran, North Korea and others. Terrorists around the world are emboldened and able to pass freely into our country through our open border with Mexico.

Besides these military operational reasons for resignations, there are leadership, training, and morale reasons for resignations. In interviews, congressional testimony, and public statements it has become clear that top leaders in our military are placing mandatory emphasis on PC “wokeness” related training which is extremely divisive and harmful to unit cohesion, readiness, and war fighting capability. Our military exists to fight and win our Nation’s wars and that must be the sole focus of our top military leaders. For these reasons we call on the SECDEF Austin and the CJCS General Milley to resign. 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.
