Correspondent Matt Gates last month slammed General Mark Millie and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, saying they would all be fired if President Biden was not so “adept”.
Getz (R-FL) was among the few lawmakers expelled appropriately for the hearing of military leaders before the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday.
He was so excited, the video went viral.
As the Florida congressman launched the attack just outside the gate, Millie claimed that the general was addressing his earlier remarks which indicated that the Taliban would not be able to defeat the Afghan military.
“We know we are not going to defeat the Taliban militarily, and they are not going to defeat the Afghan government militarily,” Getz was quoted as saying by Millie.
“You really blew that call, didn’t you, General?” A clearly dissatisfied Gaetz said.

Gates Millie, Austin’s hammer continued
Matt Gates, throughout his allotted five minutes, continued to annoy General Millie and Secretary of Defense Austin in the way you expected for the kind of resentment you expected to be withdrawn from Afghanistan as a result of an operation plan under President Biden.
The kind of emotion you would expect would be directed at the men who oversaw a mission that killed 13 Army members in a suicide bombing, a retaliatory drone strike in the United States killed 10 civilians – including an aid worker and 7 children – and Countless Americans lag behind in Taliban-controlled countries.
Yet, Getz understands that these people have no desire to resign. And the president must not hold them accountable.
“I believe you will probably not resign. You seem to be very happy to have failed there, ”Getz told Austin, Millie and U.S. Central Command Commander General Kenneth McKenzie.
“But if we didn’t have a president who was so intoxicated, you would all be fired, because that’s what you deserve,” he said.
“You’ve disappointed people wearing uniforms in my district and across the country, and you’re more interested in Washington’s internal books than what you perceive and what people think of you, and you win.”

Gates’ remarks reflect the knowledge that Millie spoke with several writers about Trump’s presidency, calling General China to assure them that any military strike would be impossible without his input.
He reassured them and gave them advice.
“If we’re going to attack, I’ll call you in advance,” he told General Li Zhucheng of China’s People’s Liberation Army.

Gaetz Address Marine Prison
Representative Matt Gates also addresses the fact that neither Millie nor Austin nor any other military leader has been blamed for the disaster in Afghanistan, except for one Marine who has publicly criticized those responsible.
Marine Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Schiller is currently in “pre-trial prison,” according to the Marine Corps, after repeatedly making viral videos and statements on social media about military leadership.
“When Stuart broke the chain of command, General Mackenzie and General Millie and Secretary Austin broke the chain of trust and confidence of the American people,” Schiller’s father said in a recent interview.
“For that, they should be embarrassed,” he added. “That’s why they should resign.”
“Looks like you’re going to be bad about this in the long run,” Getz added.
“But when military men like Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Schiller stand up and demand accountability, when they say you are all shocked, when they point out General Milli’s statement that the Afghan government will not be defeated by the Taliban. Okay, he ends up up to the brigade and you all end up in front of us and your former employer Raytheon ends up with a lot of money and we have brought cash and blood and credibility to a Ghani government which was a mirage.
Raytheon is a major defense contractor in the United States, whose main production is centralized weapons and military forces.
Secretary of Defense Austin sat on Raytheon’s board before heading to the Pentagon.

How do you know that you have cut a stain with a long-term disabled military brass? When the heated lease comes forward to run the sugar cover and apologizes to them.
Cheney (R-WY) immediately followed Matt Getz and immediately apologized to Millie and Austin for his colleague’s “reprehensible” question.
“It is reprehensible for any member of this committee, any American, to question your allegiance to our nation, your understanding of our Constitution, your allegiance to our Constitution, your recognition and your understanding of the Civil Chain of Command.” Said.
“I apologize to the members of this committee who have done this, and I would like to thank you for standing up to this violation, including many in this room, when many have failed to do so,” he said.

Imagine it. A pro-war member of the Cheney family has apologized to a man who reportedly said he would call on the enemy of the United States ahead of time if former President Trump decides to take military action.
