Ret. Gen. Jack Keane joined “The Story” to share his ideas on the latest story about Gen. Mark Milley’s reported calls to China and argued that that the media has “sensationalized” the story.
General Jack Keane: I feel these are accountable actions which might be being taken, not the opposite. Based on what the Pentagon is reporting and the suggestions we’re getting from Jennifer Griffin and I belief her and her sources, by the way in which, they’ve been impeccable up to now and I take them at face worth right here, I don’t see something that is undermining the civilian management of the army. If you took the details which might be being reported and I feel being sensationalized within the media. But that is not what the Pentagon is reporting. Seems to be just about in sync with what we’re used to seeing. The different factor is, I imply, I don’t know what number of occasions we need to be taught this lesson. It could be much better if folks are serving within the authorities to not be speaking to the media about issues which might be going on within the authorities, notably such delicate issues as we’re dealing with right here. Because they tend to get fully out of context as we’re seeing right here. The different factor is, I’m assuming that General Milley isn’t coming ahead himself as a result of he’s going to deal with this difficulty on September 28 with the senators. He most likely doesn’t need to upsurp their authority. They’ll have loads questions on this and what happened in Afghanistan. So I feel we’re going to get all of the details on this. I’d be shocked if it’s something greater than what we’re seeing proper now.
