What does civilian oversight mean?

New reports are that General Milley assumed control of the military to ignore orders from the President in January and was in direct communication with Beijing.

Earlier reports are that the military lied to the President about its actions in Syria.

How many of the false reports coming out of the Biden White House are from similar deceptions from the military?

Should civilian oversight mean that the military oversees the elected government?

Should Biden fire General Milley? Or is that even possible?

Should Milley face trial for treason?

This could get interesting…

The book, excerpted in the Washington Post, also stated that Milley told Zuocheng that he would warn him in advance should America decide to “attack.”

“Gen. Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time,” Milley added, as reported by the book, “Peril,” which is set to be released next week. “It’s not going to be a surprise.”

Yes, Truman fired MacArthur for ignoring his orders. Is that even possible today?

Ignoring direct orders from the President and giving secret information to an enemy appears to violate multiple laws possibly including treason.

But Milley has gotten his COVID shot and endorses critical race theory, so the truly important things are covered . . .

Yes, civilian oversight seems to be coming from President Xi, not the President of the US.

did you read the article he didn’t give away classified information.

We are not sure what he gave them at this point.

The earlier quote appears to show he was acting as a spy for Communist China:

“Gen. Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time,” Milley added, as reported by the book, “Peril,” which is set to be released next week. “It’s not going to be a surprise.”

He committed to doing so. Did you read the quote?

He got a report that China think America is going to attack them.
He called China and said that isn’t true.

Read it again. Slowly. Focus.

That has been discussed many times in other threads. Go read them.

Don’t care. This thread is about General Milley.
