President Joe Biden’s botched troop pullout in Afghanistan has generated controversy from many, including from two former U.S. Navy SEALs who clearly feel as though someone needs to be punished over what has transpired.
According to the Washington Examiner, Robert O’Neill, the SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden in 2011, and retired SEAL and congressional candidate Derrick Van Orden, both slammed Biden and his top military commanders for dropping the ball and humiliating America on the world stage. They also called for several resignations.
Both O’Neill and Van Order held nothing back as they excoriated the Biden administration for what has taken place over the past week in the war-torn country of Afghanistan, where thousands of Americans are still trapped.
“There are Afghans falling to their deaths off of our retreating aircraft,” he wrote. “Has @thejointstaff resigned yet?” O’Neill tweeted, referring Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley.
O’Neill wrote in another tweet: “This is the worst loss in American history. Our most popular president has vanished. Prove me wrong.”
Van Orden seemed to share the same sentiment, calling on some of Biden’s top military officials to hand in their resignations over the debacle, which is still ongoing.
“You’ve got Secretary Blinken and Secretary Austin — they need to tender their resignations right now. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Milley, he needs to go peel potatoes in the galley for about a month and then resign also,” Van Orden told Fox & Friends.
The retired SEAL and Republican candidate went on to explain how Biden’s top people are failing at performing the baseline duties of their positions, adding that the situation has created a long list of new national security concerns.
“These folks’ primary duty is to advise the president of the United States on diplomatic and military matters, and they’ve abjectly failed that,” Van Orden insisted, likely in agreeance with millions of concerned Americans.
