For the second consecutive day, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair General Mark Milley, and U.S. Central Command Commander General Kenneth McKenzie testified on the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. House Armed Services Committee members lodged multiple questions and raised several concerns with the military leaders. Topics included the chaotic evacuations of Americans and Afghan allies following the Taliban takeover, the collapse of the Afghan government and security forces, future counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan, and the botched drone strike that killed civilians including children following the ISIS-K attack at the Kabul airport. Separately, General Milley also addressed several questions regarding his post-2020 election calls to his Chinese counterpart to reassure him that then-President Trump would not attack China. Revelations of these calls first surfaced in excerpts from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s book, Peril. close
