Gen. Keith Kellogg, who beforehand served as a nationwide safety adviser within the Trump administration, raised considerations on “The Faulkner Focus” Tuesday concerning the Biden administration’s willingness to make use of pressure towards the Taliban if wanted in Afghanistan.
GEN. KEITH KELLOGG: They’ve the entire playing cards. They’ve run us in another country. It was really a strategic debacle going ahead. And so they do not imagine we’ll again something up with pressure. That is one factor you say about President Trump, when he determined to make use of pressure, we used it and we used it forcefully. I imply, we received Soleimani, we received Baghdadi. We went after the Syrian targets after they used nerve gasoline. He wasn’t afraid to go and use aggressive motion once we wanted to. Biden hasn’t executed that and his whole nationwide safety crew has not confirmed to me they’re keen to do this.
So I’ve actual considerations and questions concerning the Taliban supporting us and doing something. They’ll do what they need to do, not what we need to do. And that is the explanation I’m going again to what Senator Graham stated about utilizing pressure. It could be required, however the query is, will we do it? And any individual’s going to need to persuade me and present me that we’re keen to do it. And I simply do not see it.
