The Senate Armed Companies Committee held a labeled listening to with Gen. Austin Miller on Tuesday afternoon. Miller was the final commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The listening to was the primary of a collection of hearings the committee is holding to analyze Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“What we have to know is what recommendation did the army give the president and his nationwide safety group, and did the president take these actions,” Blackburn advised Fox Information. “Listening to from Gen. Miller, who was the command lead via the turning over of Bagram, was useful for us to start to construct that framework.”
She added: “It’s obvious that the choice that was made by the president was completely different than the recommendation given by his army commanders.”
Blackburn advised Fox Information that, throughout the labeled briefing, senators “realized of main inconsistencies between what the Biden administration has stated publicly and the reality.”
“We all know that this was, has been, and can proceed to be the conflict on terror due to the choice the Biden administration made,” Blackburn stated, including that the extremist “ideology now controls the nation state of Afghanistan” below the Taliban rule.
Blackburn advised Fox Information that within the coming weeks, the Senate Armed Companies Committee can be holding each public and labeled hearings with Protection Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Employees Gen. Mark Milley, and Commander of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie.
The Biden administration withdrew all U.S. army property from Afghanistan on Aug. 31. Nationwide safety officers have stated the mission there has shifted from a army one, to a diplomatic mission.
