[January 31, 2024] Here is a fact that all military personnel know: weak leadership always backfires and will get you killed. The unnecessary U.S. Soldier deaths in Jordan a few days ago in an outpost in Jordan, killed by an Iranian proxy using a drone, is due to weak political leadership in America. This is not my opinion; it is well-known that the fastest way to destroy an army is to put a weak leader in charge of them.
Three Soldiers were killed, and another 40 were injured in the attack on what is called Tower 22. All were members of the 926th Engineer Brigade, Fort Moore, Georgia. If you don’t recognize that fort, it was called Fort Benning until the DoD believed that the name Benning was too triggering to our Soldiers because Benning was a Confederate General during the U.S. Civil War.
“What I will say is our deepest ah ah condolences go out to our he heart felt condolences go out to families who lost three three brave, ah three brave, ah three brave, ah three folks who are our military folks, who are brave, who were always fighting, who are fighting on behalf of this Administration, the American people obviously so more importantly. We lost those souls yesterday, the President said when he was in South Carolina. Our hearts go out to their families, their friends. There are also wounded soldier and military forces as well, and our hearts go out to them.” – White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, January 30, 2024 on MSNBC [this is as direct transcription as best I could do of her rambling]
Acknowledging the death of Soldiers is the right thing to do. But this was a total failure by Karine Jean-Pierre. “Three folks who are military folks, who are brave, are always fighting on behalf of this Administration…” This is unbelievable. Our military does NOT fight on behalf of “this Administration,” and an experienced spokesperson would know that. Disgusting! She didn’t know they were U.S. Army Soldiers, and this partly explains her stuttering response.
I could go on, but I don’t want to demean the sacrifice of these Soldiers. God Bless them.
