The skeletons are buried deep in Biden’s closet. Only a few people are aware of exactly what the demented president is capable of. Gen. Mark Milley is one of those people.
Overseeing a tragic disaster in Afghanistan, Biden elicited the advice of his closest advisers only to ignore it and proceed how he saw fit — and we know how that ended up. Gen. Milley was around for all of that: every uninformed decision, every slip up, every secret.
Former President Donald Trump said President Joe Biden has not taken action against Gen. Mark Milley because the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman may harbor “dirty secrets” about the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

According to a forthcoming book, Milley promised to give his Chinese counterpart advance notice if Trump ordered a strike against China. The reporting ignited a maelstrom of calls from Republicans and military veterans for the top military official to resign or be fired.
Trump is tying the controversy to Biden’s botched Afghanistan mission after the cognitively deficient president spoke publicly on the matter, giving Milley his full “confidence.”

Thirteen U.S. service members died in an explosion last month as they assisted with frantic evacuations following a swift Taliban takeover of the country and the fall of the U.S.-backed Afghan government. The Pentagon is also facing scrutiny for a U.S. drone strike that killed an Afghan man who was longtime employee at an American humanitarian organization and beloved by his colleagues , along with several children . Milley called it a “righteous strike,” and said “at least one of the people that were killed was an ISIS facilitator.”
According to excerpts from Peril published on Tuesday, Milley was concerned Trump might order a strike that would lead to war with China, attempting to avert armed conflict to Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army in a pair of secret calls just before the 2020 election and after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise,” Milley said to Li in one of the conversations.
White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki dismissed demands for the president to fire Milley.
