An open letter signed by 124 retired US military officers has called President Biden’s health into question, earning a strong rebuke from Hillary Clinton and others.
“The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored,” wrote Flag Officers 4 America, an organisation of former generals and admirals. “He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night.”
It also challenges the election of the country, which they claimed a “Constitutional Republic is lost” without “fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people’.”
The letter echoes former President Donald Trump’s claims of widespread election fraud, despite never presenting any concrete evidence to prove it.
The group which posted the letter consists of retired military officers including generals and admirals.
“The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored.
“He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night.
“The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020,” they wrote.
“Recent Democrat leadership’s inquiries about nuclear code procedures sends a dangerous national security signal to nuclear armed adversaries, raising the question about who is in charge.
“We must always have an unquestionable chain of command.”
The letter comes following Trump’s claim that Biden is making the world “more violent and unstable”, referencing the ongoing Israel-Gaza conflict.
“Under Biden, the world is getting more violent and more unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is leading to new attacks on our allies.
“American must always stand with Israel and make clear that the Palestinians must end the violence, terror, and rocket attacks, and make clear that the US will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself.”
