General McKenzie Testifies That He Warned Biden That Afghanistan Would Quickly Fall to the Taliban Without US Troops -- Despite Biden's Constant Lies That No One Ever Predicted This

Gen. McKenzie: "I recommended we keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan." Also says he predicted withdrawing them would cause the Afghan army to collapse and the Taliban taking over. Gen. Milley agrees.

Biden has denies that he received such advise. He told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that "no one" that he "can recall" advised him to keep a force of about 2,500 troops in Afghanistan


No one he "can recall."

I guess that right there gets him off the hook for criminal perjury. His mental incapacity will be a perfect defense.

Even Politico acknowledges the obvious lie:

Top generals told lawmakers under oath on Tuesday that they advised President Joe Biden early this year to keep several thousand troops in Afghanistan -- directly contradicting the president’s comments in August that no one warned him not to withdraw troops from the country.

The remarkable testimony pits top military brass against the commander-in-chief as the Biden administration continues to face tough questions about what critics are calling a botched withdrawal that directly led to the deaths of 13 American service members, scenes of chaos at the Kabul airport, and the abandonment of American citizens and at-risk Afghans in the war-torn country.

While Politico can't quite find the partisan strength to spin for Biden on this lie, CNN says "Hold my beer."

Jim Sciutto @jimsciutto

-->> Contradicting Trump and supporters who say he'd have done differently or better, Milley confirms he received an order in 2020 to withdraw all US forces from Afghanistan by January 2021.

Stephen L. Miller @redsteeze

Generals just revealed Biden went against their advice on a contingency force, which led to the collapse of the Afghan government, and he lied in an interview about it, but CNN has their script and they are sticking to it.

This guy says Jim Sciutto is now limiting who can and can't read his tweets. Unless that's some kind of a glitch, Sciutto is choosing to limit his own reach to avoid skeptics reading his partisan trash.
