Washington: Former US military officers, who have served as admirals and generals, have raised serious questions on Biden’s victory in the 2020 elections, physical and mental health, and his policy on China. ‘Flag Officers 4 America’, the association of retired military officials, has raised all of these issues, alleging that the constitutional rights of the United States are under attack. A letter with signatures of nearly 124 officials has been published in the media, raising serious concerns regarding the policies of the Biden administration. Never in the history of the United States has such a large number of former military leaders criticised the administration’s policies.
Officials holding essential posts in the administrations from Ronald Reagan to George Bush have signed the letter. Rear Admiral John Poindexter, the National Security Advisor in the Reagan administration, Lt. Gen. William Boykin, Deputy Undersecretary of Defence for Intelligence in the Bush administration, and Brigadier General Donald Bolduc are among the signatories of the letter. Former US defence officials generally do not make such statements regarding politics. Major General Joe Arbuckle, one of the signatories, said, “Former military officers normally do not engage in political actions. However, we must speak out as the situation facing our country today is dire.”
