At a House Armed Services Committee hearing in June, Milley defended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point offering teaching on “understanding whiteness and white rage” and critical race theory. Milley said at the time, “I want to understand white rage, and I’m white.” Milley also affirmed his belief that it was necessary for the military to foster open-mindedness and to be exposed to unconventional ideas.
Milley claimed he supports such academic courses because he claimed he wanted to know the theoretical root of the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jab. 6. Yet, it does not appear Milley had the same devotion to theorize why a group of rioters wanted to seal police officers in a precinct in Seattle and burn it to the ground.
The fact that not one of our military leaders saw the Taliban’s quick victory as a potential outcome is very disturbing. The fact that not one of our intelligence agencies planned for this outcome, the intelligence agencies that were deemed infallible by Democrats during the Trump administration, should lead every American to question the competence and reliability of these agencies. It should lead every American to question our country’s leadership.
