Keith Kellogg has been around the block a few times.
He has served as the Acting United States National Security Adviser after Michael Flynn was dismissed, the Executive Secretary and Chief of Staff of the National Security Council, and Mike Pence’s National Security Adviser.
This does not even consider the more than three decades of service in the United States Army, retiring as a Lieutenant General with a fruit salad on his chest that includes a Silver Star and a Bronze Star with Valor and four oak leaf clusters.
Kellogg recently chimed in on Afghanistan, and his review of Biden’s decision-making is for adult ears only.
The problem most Americans have regarding the Afghanistan withdrawal is how it was carried out.
Quite frankly, it is rather shocking that our military leaders were not more outspoken when Biden put his plan into play because it went against everything we know in carrying out a successful withdrawal.
Removing troops before embassy personnel and American citizens (as well as Afghan translators) was a recipe for failure.
Kellogg, on this idiocy, stated, “It’s an abysmal failure at the strategic level. That’s what the American people should be concerned about.
“It’s a lack of decision making, it’s a lack of really seeing what the problem is going forward, and it’s a lack of seeing what is going on on the ground and what’s happening here in Washington, D.C., at the leadership level.”
He added, “… What’s happening right now, it’s almost like they think it’s going to go away and ignore it. They did it at the border, and have now done it with Afghanistan, and they’re kind of saying, ‘well maybe if we just keep ignoring it, talk about something else out there, it’ll eventually go away.’
“I think Americans need to be concerned right now, we’re seeing a real lack of what I call command and control decision making at the most senior levels.”
Kellogg goes on to call out not only Joe Biden but also Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Blinken, and Defense Secretary Austin.
