Finally Some Answers On Afghanistan

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III, and U.S. Central Commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie will appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday and the House Armed Services Committee Wednesday in their first public testimony since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan.

 

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have criticized the Biden administration’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal last month, putting an end to a 20-year war, and will specifically grill Milley on allegations from a new book that he assured China the U.S. would not launch a nuclear strike in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election.

 

The line of questioning will also include what happened with the Afghanistan drawdown and the suicide bombing that killed 13 U.S. service members and more than 169 Afghans near Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport on Aug. 26.
