"boyd austin" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show

"To second guessed but let's just be clear. America was in this war for twenty years. And i think any effort unwind at any effort to bring our troops out any effort to end. Our military presence in afghanistan was going to be filled with a heartbreaking scenes and difficulties that i think the biden administrations managed that as well as it could be managed under the circumstances. We replaced him The circumstances you place yourselves in it was handled as well as could be managed. Then boyd austin the secretary of defense he said this was historic. Were so good at this man. We are so good at the so a few things one. This is not dunkirk. Okay we're doing this under cover of night with the nazis looking down at british troops and then a flotilla of small fishing boats being sent across the english channel. This plane's going in and out of runway under no fire. That's what this was and you guys failing to facilitate that and getting american troops killed. That's what this was here. Is lloyd austin again. Just keep just keep stroking yourself. Manch keep doing it now. We have just concluded the largest air evacuation of civilians in american history roic. It was historic. And i hope that all americans will unite to thank our service members for their courage and compassion. They were operating in immensely dangerous and dynamic environment but our troops were tireless fearless and selfless my favorite is when he says things like this is the biggest evacuation american history. Aren't we go this. There wouldn't have been evacuation necessary if you hadn't pursued an entirely garbage policy by the way when when people say things like this is unprecedented dunkirk involved. Three hundred and forty thousand troops being evacuated from the french coastline. So actually this is actually it. Pretty well historically precedent and in the aftermath of the nineteen forty eight war establishing the state of israel. Some eight hundred thousand people their journeys from arab lands to israel. Jews had been expelled. That was facilitated ratto no large population in the in the aftermath of the saddam hussein kuwait war the huge population transfers that were facilitated so no this is not unprecedented. No on particularly -gistically impressive from the secretary of defense's perspective and yes our people on the ground even her own but our leadership is just garbage all the way through. Meanwhile i am amazed at the spectacle of the by administration saying that people should have gotten earlier telling them they needed to get out earlier and then they didn't get out earlier they got stuck. It's really their own fault. There's only one problem with that. Which the joe biden is a damn bleier. You'll remember in july. He said the government was not going to fall. Now he's like well. We were telling people back in march. They should leave really in july. You're saying the government wasn't going to fall not only that in july. The president of the united states called up the then. Afghan president ashraf ghani and some of the transcript has now been leaked. This was july twenty third and he was telling don each wide to everybody and say that everything was hunky dory. Hurry expecting people take you seriously. When you're actively encouraging he president of afghanistan to lie about the situation being just fine. There's only one reason that joe biden wanted that one reason that joe biden wanted that is to shore up his own domestic political failures in want people to know that things were collapsing that quickly. Because then everybody would been like whoa. Maybe it was a bad idea to announce to your mortal enemies taliban what you were going to leave how you're going to leave. And then withdrawal air support. Here's what biden said gone. It's unbelievable remember. Donald trump was impeached over ukraine phone. Call there's problems that phone. Call nothing to me. Approaching the level of the president of the united states calling up the afghan president and telling him to overtly lied to the world about the military situation on the ground in afghanistan. Here's what biden said quote. You know a moment late. But i mean it sincerely. Hey look i wanna make clear. I'm not a military man anymore than you are. But i have been meeting with our pentagon folks in our national security people as you have been with ours and yours and as you know and as i need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of afghanistan i believe is that things aren't going well in terms of the fight against the taliban and there is a need whether it is true or not. There is a need to project a different picture. There is a need to project a different picture. I mean like that's amazing. He's telling him overtly to lie by the way he also to him this way he said we're gonna continue to make sure your air forces capable of continuing to fly and provide air. Support is what he told ghani and july lie. He did not continue to provide air support. He withdrew all military contractors from the country. He said in addition to that. We're going to continue to fight hard. Diplomatically politically economically mixture government not only survives but sustained and grows because it is clearly in the interest of the of the people have ghanistan that you succeed and that you lied. I find you a brilliant an honorable man but the perception is that things are falling apart and we need that perception to change. It's not about the reality on the ground. Changing ghani replied said. Mr president were facing a full scale invasion composed of taliban full pakistani planning logistical support. At least ten to fifteen thousand. International terrorists predominantly pakistanis thrown into this. So this so that dimension to be taken account of he said what is crucial raiders. Ghani speaking to biden z. Leach of a phone call biden will not be impeached over. What is crucial. Is that close air support. And if i could make a request if your assistance particularly to our air force be frontloaded because what we need at this moment. There is a very heavy reliance on air power. We prioritize that if it could be at all front loaded will greatly appreciate it. So and biden didn't do any of that and then he said look close. Air support works..

I live in and and i'm sure that the other officers that you talked to would probably say the same thing. There's not a day in my life. David when i didn't wake up and think about the fact that i was a black man a number of the african american so we have talked to for this story have should when they are the only one in the room. Feel as if they're not being listened to did you have that experience absolutely had that experience. And i found ways to operate to adapt in one thousand nine hundred ninety five as the eighty second airborne first african american operations officer then lieutenant colonel austin adapted by having someone else give his briefings someone. He felt white officers. Were more likely to listen to. Was that away officer it was. Did you feel that was a conscious bias. People not ready to listen to you. It absolutely was a conscious bias. Bias didn't end even when he was a four star. General i would go someplace with my staff and we were wearing civilian clothes. Somebody would come out to meet the meet. The general and i wasn't the guy that they walked up to people have a perception that african americans can't being in key positions just because you're african american and he just assume that it's always gonna be somebody else general. Cq brown rose from fighter pilot to become the first african american in history to head the air force which makes him a member of the joint chiefs of staff. The last time there was an african american in. This room was nearly thirty years ago. When colin powell was chairman of the joint chiefs pregnant as actually a weapons cache we then lieutenant general brown nearly six years ago it his operations center in the persian gulf where he was commanding the air war against isis guy. It was all about destroying the enemy but there was something else going on. We didn't see. There's a world that i live in as an african-american and there's a world that i also live in as a minority inside of the united states air force. Those worlds collided one day last year when a minneapolis police officer his knee into george floyd's neck in fact just the how long he was in a position was now nonchalant cop. Look at that. Actually at that hubbard. Your minsk brown felt compelled to send out this message to his airman. Here's what i'm thinking about thinking about. How full. I am with emotion. Not just for george fluid but the mini african americans. They have suffered the same fate as joe choi with that. A lifetime of frustration game boiling out. I'm thinking about the pressure. I felt perform error-free especially for supervisors perceive had expected less from me. As an african american i think about having to represent by working twice as hard to prove their expectations and perceptions of african americans were invalid was really what i wanted to get off my chest. I had no intention for it to go as big as it did. But i'm glad i did because i think it helped generate the conversation that many of us are happening today about race relations in the united states. That's what i'm thinking about so far. The video has been viewed over four million times with black lives. Matter protests breaking out across the country air force. inspector general conducted a survey on racial disparity which produced eye-opening responses to out of every five african. Americans do not trust their chain of command to address racism bias in unequal opportunities. Three out of every five believe they do not receive the same benefit of the doubt as their white peers. If they get in trouble there were one hundred twenty three thousand responses in just two weeks really outpouring of emotion from ireland that. I've not seen the time. I've been worn this uniform for senior master. Sergeant safari morgan. The survey was long overdue. I think people were so elated to finally have an opportunity to speak when you hold in things for so long without being able to express yourself and then you're given an avenue to speak. People aided up year forces now conducting another survey to include hispanics and other minorities but the hard data from the first survey is now a matter of record. Young black enlisted members are almost twice as likely as white enlisted members to be involuntarily discharged based on misconduct. Black airmen of all ranks are fifty seven percent more likely to face courts-martial as a senior sergeant. Morgan had been seeing numbers like that for years. I felt sick. The first time i saw. How many black airmen had article fifteen or discharges. In comparison to white airmen across the air force and the thing that i think hurt the most was that no one wanted to have the conversation. Thanks for joining us again. last summer. That conversation began at randolph. Air force base in texas with a program called real talk hosted by lieutenant. General brad webb. Obviously the air force has Fundamentally had a wakeup call in which black airman chief master sergeant michael holland got a chance to speak truth. Do air force power. This is brave for us. To jesse seen to general web. This bree.
