A group called “Flag Officers for America” has called for top Pentagon leadership to resign over the Afghan withdrawal debacle and leaving Americans and allies behind. This letter and list below how now expanding to 160 retired military flag officers.
“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.”
Because after all, if Americans don’t get out and it is not reported than we either got them all out or they didn’t want to leave, which is the talking point being put out by Biden’s Press Secretary Jen Psaki. With the Biden pull out, and Biden bailing on our allies, these flights are all that is left.
The State Department refused to grant official approval for private evacuation flights from Afghanistan to land in third countries, even though the department conceded that official authorization would likely be needed for planes to land in those nations, an email reviewed by Fox News shows.
Furthermore, the State Department explicitly stated that charter flights, even those containing American citizens, would not be allowed to land at Defense Department (DOD) airbases. U.S. officials have pointed to possible security threats from landing charter planes at military bases, saying that they lack the resources on the ground to fully verify flight manifests.
The Biden administration’s delaying of private evacuation efforts has been a widespread source of frustration, infuriating rescue organizers and even a prominent Democratic senator.
Glenn Beck, who has been chartering flights and professionals to get Americans and Christians out of Afghanistan explains why State Department’s reasoning is just another lie:
