Saying president must have spoken to soldiers directly – but says Pentagon WILL release footage of raid
- The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, told reporters that he couldn’t confirm some of the details on the raid shared by President Trump
- ‘I know the president had planned to talk down to unit and unit members, but I don’t know what the source of that was,’ Milley said at the Pentagon Monday
- Milley and Defense Secretary Mark Esper had both been asked to confirm Trump’s account that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was ‘whimpering’
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley couldn’t confirm President Trump’s descriptive account of how ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was ‘whimpering’ before he died. ‘I know the president had planned to talk down to unit and unit members, but I don’t know what the source of that was,’ Milley said at the Pentagon Monday. ‘But I assume it was talking directly to unit and unit members.’ Milley said he hadn’t ‘talked to unit members,’ and so wouldn’t have heard those details, but told reporters that visual content from the raid was going through the declassification process and in the ‘coming days’ journalists would be ‘provided some videos, photos, etc. of it.’ Nick Note: The way it works with Dandy Don… he tells a lie and expects his people to PROVE their loyalty by swearing to it... I wonder where General Milley will be working next year. A man who is willing to blow up himself and his kids rather then be taken a live is not a coward. He was a animal… Like Hitler these monsters are more then wiling to take their live and the lives of their loved one rather then be taken alive. In his case this was a very smart move. i doubt the bullshit trump is peddling is True!!
