Biden Was Warned By General In Charge Of U.S. Forces In Afghanistan That Intel Was Bad, Report Says

Gen. Austin Miller, the Commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan from 2018 through July of this year, reportedly warned Democrat President Joe Biden against withdrawing all forces from Afghanistan, and he strongly pushed back against intelligence reports that said the Afghan military could hold off the Taliban for 1-3 years, indicating that they would collapse significantly faster.

Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich said that Miller made the remarks during a classified Senate Armed Services Committee hearing yesterday, according to multiple sources who were present in the hearing.

“According to two members present for the hearing, Gen Miller passed his recommendations through the chain of command — that the US should keep a level of troops on the ground (2500 was the number at the time) in order to maintain stability given the Taliban threat assessment,” Heinrich wrote. “Miller’s view was troops should maintain holding pattern – potentially supplemented by add’l forces from allied nations – given the threat. Miller shared no recommendation on how long forces should have stayed, making clear he didn’t know what the end timeline would be.”

“Miller also said that he strongly dissented with the intel assessment that Afghanistan would fall to the Taliban between 1-3 years, saying he thought it would go much, much faster,” Heinrich continued. “Miller also said once his recommendation was turned down, it became his job to execute on the withdrawal order – and eventually, decisions like abandoning Bagram were made because of constraints and troop caps imposed by the President’s orders.”

So the General on the ground disagrees with the intelligence community, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, President Biden, and said so to the chain of command.

He was overruled and obeyed orders.

Then he told the Senate what happened.

The are 231 Generals in the US Army and only one didn’t engage in bureaucratic group think and predicted the pullout of Afghanistan correctly.

Yeah, the Administration is going to burn him.

To make matters worse, he’s the sort of general troops love and would follow into hell.  He was a Special Forces officer and was a captain in Mogadishu during Operation Gothic Serpent.

Is exactly the opposite of the politician ass-kissing, bureaucratic, looking for a cushy MIC job after retirement, general that the rest of our flag officers seem to be.

Which is why he recognized the truth about Afghanistan and was willing to say something about it.

That makes General Miller a threat to the bureaucrat military and this administration.

They are going to burn Miller.

Just you watch.

They are going to ruin him so that he can’t do anything after retirement.  They will ruin his reputation.  I suspect they might even try criminal charges to take his pension.

So when the news that General Miller is being investigated for something comes out, know that he is being burned by the Administration for speaking out against the group think.
