Nearly 90 Retired Generals and Admirals Join Calls for General Milley and General Austin to Resign Over Botched Afghanistan Pullout

“Milley, Austin, Biden, Kamala, the entire Joint Chiefs, and all of our four stars need to resign. Replace them with leadership our military deserves!”

The letter from the retired generals and admirals came around the time when the Pentagon informed Americans that the last military flight was leaving Kabul airport in Afghanistan yesterday. 

The Blaze reported in part:

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.
