Former Defense Secretary’s new book offers hard truths for current military leadership

To the Next President,

Letter 3. An update from the former Secretary of Defense.

 

Christopher Miller, President Trump’s final Defense Secretary, just wrote a book for the American people. It’s titled Soldier Secretary. It’s refreshing having a former SECDEF concluding obvious needed changes for military leadership. I’ve cherry picked some quotes from the book below.

 

However, if I could humbly offer one critique, America could have used the former SECDEF’s voice a year and a half ago while most of the veteran and American people struggled with “leadership’s” decisions. Part of me is happy Mr. Miller finally came forward with his observations, but the other part of me lumps his observations in with the majority of Americans and military members who only make observations once the truth is obvious and the risk is negligible. That being said, what the former SECDEF had to say, is important to understand…   


“The narrative promulgated by the senior military officers about the Afghan Army collapse is totally wrong. I believe Chairman Milley, and the theater commander, Marine General Frank McKenzie, are either lying or grossly incompetent. I’m not sure what is worse.” 

 

“A huge portion of the current leadership in every branch of the Armed Forces needs to be gracefully escorted into retirement.”  

 

“The events of six Jan undeniably laid bare the true character of our ruling class. Here were the leaders of the legislative branch of the mightiest nation in history cowering like frightened children for the whole world to see.” 

 

“There is no more visible example of Congress’s failure to provide effective oversight of the military than their decision to confirm Generals Jim Mattis and Lloyd Austin as the civilian leaders of the military.” 

 

“I’m not looking to gain the plaudits of a national security establishment that has spent the last two decades losing wars in the Middle East.” [Mattis/General Dynamics, Dunford/Lockheed Martin, and Austin/Raytheon.] 

 

I took over as Secretary of Defense after “the White House came to believe that (Secretary of Defense) Esper was being manipulated and controlled by the military industrial complex. The President already had Mattis who disagreed with his America First worldview and his determination to bring the troops home.”

Let me find a quote of my own for General Mattis and USMC... I did NOT WRITE THE FOLLOWING... [Aion by Carl Gustav Jung Translated by R.F.C Hull Chapter VI THE SIGN OF THE FISHES The figure of Christ is not as simple and unequivocal as one could wish. I am not referring here to the enormous difficulties arising out of a comparison of the Synoptic Christ with the Johannine Christ, but to the remarkable fact that in the hermeneutic writings of the Church Fathers, which go right back to the days of primitive Christianity, Christ has a number of symbols or "allegories" in common with the devil. Of these I would mention the lion, snake (coluber, 'viper'), bird (devil = nocturna avis), raven (Christ =…

You absolutely make a difference.. you are the first high profile person to expose this nations cancer..no accountability, at every level of leadership, and not just the military. This cancer cuts across every organization in america.. look at our homeless problem. Total failure as they collect and spend billions of dollars..i could write a book outlining the long list of failed leadership i have witnessed..our corrupt government is the biggest growing tumor of cancer it is looking like death is looming around the corner..i will not follow, puppets, posing as leaders..and i am ready to take up arms against this failed government that no longer is a represenative government, of the people, by the people. That is a myth. It…

Once again you are proved correct.. imo america is no longer a country for: " we, the people" its merely a vehicle for the uber rich to use the government for thier own personal gain.. this bumbling corrupt puppet is pushing us towards ww3. Only these asshole elites are in for a rude awakening when they find nobody to join the military and go fight it. Are any of the recruiting goals met today?.how many americans will let thier 18, 20 year olds go fight in ukraine? Or taiwan?
