During a later MSNBC interview, Blumenthal repeated the comments, noting that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin provided “no real responses,” because “there is nobody in charge.”

During the hearing, Commander of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley both stated under oath that they objected to Biden’s withdrawal timeline, reasoning that the impending collapse of the Afghan government would cause chaos.

Lloyd Austin and McKenzie also claimed that Biden waited a full ten days after the Taliban took Kabul before he even asked for an assessment on the withdrawal deadline.

The claims directly contradict what Biden told reporters in August:

Blumenthal hit the nail on the head, no one is in charge.
