How the MSM Covered for the Generals on Their Afghan War Testimony

Although candid at times during the congressional hearings on the Afghan war held on September 28 and 29, the three four-state generals (Lloyd Austin now Secretary of Defense; Mark Milley as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and Frank McKenzie, Jr. as Commander of Central Command) – with the complicit of the mainstream media – continued to obfuscate and deflect the Pentagon’s institutional incompetence and the Washington establishment’s responsibility for its embarrassing Vietnam war-redux in its just ended 20-year debacle in Afghanistan. (Kudos to Senator Manchin for making this apropos comparison during the Senate hearing.)

In reporting on these hearings, the mainstream media had a choice to make: Who to blame for the failure and adverse consequences of our country’s long-running Götterdämmerung opera in Afghanistan in which the history of the Graveyard of Empires became the Evil that inevitably triumphed over the Pentagon Warrior Gods’ hubris and their financiers in Congress backed by their defense industry patrons. (Picking up on this theme, Representative Gaetz noted in the hearings General Austin’s employment by Raytheon prior to him becoming the Secretary of Defense.)
