As if we needed more of a reason to have General Milley dismissed…
In the quest to hold everyone accountable for their role in this botched strike, we reviewed previous statements made by General Milley.
This took us back to Milley’s September 1 press conference regarding the strike, where he lied multiple times regarding the drone strike on the so-called “facts” he had to know were made up at the time.
Let’s Be Realistic…
Our satellite coverage can pretty much spot a fly on an elephant’s butt if need be.
Yet, somehow, our intelligence allegedly misread an aid worker putting water into his car as explosives.
Not only that, but if you read all the reports after the strike, this administration made it sound as though the alleged ISIS-K planner had been tracked for some time and they knew exactly who it was.
Yet, after the strike had been carried out and our government undoubtedly knew it had not killed an enemy and had taken out an entire innocent family, including children, Milley continued to lie about it rather than tell the truth.
It was as though he figured the truth would never get out.
So, watch this clip, then we can discuss…
Lie #1 – the vehicle in question did NOT meet our engagement criteria. In fact, they had been watching the WRONG car the entire time.
Lie #2 – the “same level of vigor” was NOT used, as McKenzie even stated on Friday they were working under “extreme time pressure.”
Lie #3 – there was NO “secondary explosion,” as Milley stated. Witnesses on the ground and the New York Times investigation found ZERO evidence of a secondary explosion that would have pointed to the car carrying explosives.
Lie #4 – Milley was firm, stating, “we know from a variety of other means, that at least one of these people that were killed was an ISIS facilitator.” Again, a blatant lie. Milley’s words make it sound as though there was no doubt regarding the death of an ISIS operative, but now we know NO ISIS members were killed, ONLY the family, which included seven children.
So, let me ask you this… how could the New York Times figure all this out before our military?
The answer is a simple one… had the results of this drone strike not been investigated, it would have been sold as a successful strike even though Milley and company undoubtedly knew they had hit the wrong vehicle.
Furthermore, why did the government NOT expose the fact innocents were killed until after the other reports surfaced?
Had they just been honest, this would have still been bad, but the perception would have been far different.
Instead, they lied, and now anyone and everyone associated with this strike should be brought up on charges, including Biden, Milley, and Austin.
