Sec. Austin on Biden Saying that No Military Leader Advised Him to Leave a Small Troop Presence in Afghanistan: ‘Their Input Was Received by the President’

‘Their input was received by the president and considered by the president for sure’
By Grabien Staff


COTTON: “It’s a simple question, Secretary Austin. He said no senior military leader advised him to leave a small troop presence behind. Is that true or not? Did these officers and General Miller's recommendations get to the President personally?”
AUSTIN: “Their input was received by the President and considered by the President for sure. In terms of what they specifically recommended, senator, as they just said, they’re not going to provide what they recommended in confidence.”
