A group called the Flag Officers 4 America has published a press release demanding the “resignation of the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS).”

The people in that position right now are Lloyd J. Austin III and General Mark A. Milley, respectively. Both military leaders who have had to face questions and scrutiny over the last weeks in the midst of the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Kabul, Afghanistan.

According to the letter, the concerns from former military officials are that the US military gave up key locations like Bagram air base (alongside the manpower therein), in tandem with not having a concrete plan to evacuate citizens in the meantime.

“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 situation as it stands this evening is that the Biden administration formally ended their military presence in Afghanistan despite admitting several hundreds of Americans were left behind.

President Biden said he trusts the Taliban when it comes to how anyone else wants to get out.

The letter from Flag Officers 4 America continues by establishing the weakness of the United States on the international stage. Places like China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea have an opportunity to take advantage of the situation in light of the Biden administration’s actions.

A whole paragraph is dedicated to how the military’s shift towards political correctness has laid the groundwork for divisiveness and a weakness of “war fighting capability.”

For the sake of posterity, here’s a list of retired military officials who have signed the Flag Officers 4 America letter.
