Who’s Lying? Top Generals Told Biden To Keep Troops in Afghanistan, But Biden Claims No One Told Him

Contradictory statements have surfaced between Joe Biden and top U.S. generals.

Top generals say they assessed the need for 2,500 American troops in Afghanistan, but Biden claims no one told him.

The White House is struggling to explain Biden’s claims to the contrary.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, General Mark Milley and General Kenneth F. McKenzie will testify for a second day on Capitol Hill on Biden’s botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

McKenzie already testified by saying, “I will give you my honest opinion and my honest opinion and view shaped my recommendation. And I recommended that we maintain 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.”

“I also have a view that the withdrawal of those forces would lead inevitably to the collapse of the Afghan military forces and eventually the Afghan government,” McKenzie testified.

“Back in the fall of 2020, and remained consistent throughout, that we should keep a steady state of 2,500 and it could bounce up to 3,500, maybe, something like that, in order to move toward a negotiated solution,” he added.

On other hand, Biden said repeatedly that no military leaders advised him to leave a small military presence behind.

On ABC News in August, Biden claimed that “no one” recommended a 2,500-troop presence that he could “recall.”

Due to Biden’s disturbingly sharp cognitive decline, it’s certainly no surprise that he could not “recall” this information.

“Their input was received by the president and considered by the president for sure,” Austin testified.

More from Fox News:

Austin’s, Milley’s and McKenzie’s testimony comes nearly a month after the Biden administration on Aug. 31 withdrew all U.S. military assets from the region after having a presence there for 20 years following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. An Aug. 26 suicide bombing took the lives of 13 U.S. service members – including 11 Marines, one Navy sailor and one Army soldier. Eighteen other U.S. service members were wounded. The bombing also left more than 150 civilians dead.

As the Biden administration began the withdrawal of military assets, provincial capitals across Afghanistan began to fall to the Taliban. By mid-August, the Taliban attained control of two-thirds of Afghanistan. And by the time the U.S. withdrew all U.S. troops from the country on Aug. 31, Kabul had also fallen to the Taliban. In mid-August, U.S. intelligence assessments projected the capital city could fall to the Taliban within 90 days.

The withdrawal concluded on Aug. 31, with the U.S. evacuating more than 124,000 individuals – including 6,000 Americans.

But administration officials admitted to leaving more than 100 American citizens behind. Administration officials, though, said their mission in Afghanistan had shifted from a military mission to a diplomatic one, with some saying they were working with the Taliban to ensure safe passage for those Americans and U.S. visa holders, as well as some Afghan allies, to evacuate the country.
