Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Gen. Mark Milley testifed before the House Armed Services Committee on Defense Department authorities related to civilian law enforcement. They discussed the role of the military, the rights of citizens to protest, and military’s involvement during the protests around the country, stressing that no active duty U.S. military or National Guard had laid laid hands or threw tear gas on protestors. When asked about military bases named for Confederate soldiers, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair General Mark Milley said “The Confederacy, the American Civil War was fought, and it was an act of rebellion, an act of treason at the time against the Union, against the Stars and Stripes, against the U.S. Constitution. And those officers turned their back on their oath.” close
