Communications from top leadership at the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) shows them instructing active duty and retired service members that they are forbidden from criticizing Joe Biden for his utter incompetence that led to the crisis in Afghanistan.
In an email that was uncovered by the Daily Wire, the Naval Intelligence Chief of staff, Captain Scott Chesbrough, gave current and former members of the Navy a reminder to follow the uniform code that prohibits them from disrespecting senior government leadership, especially if it comes to feeble Ol’-Joe.
Under the same policy, Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and Department of Defense Directive 1344.10, service members are also unable to perform partisan political activity or distribute any related materials.
An ONI inside source for The Daily Wire said that these policies were essentially non-existent while Trump was in office, explaining how he had heard former officers repeatedly bad mouthing their commander in chief.
The email was sent on August 23rd and its directives have not been updated since the vile terrorist attack at the Kabul Airport that killed 13 US Troops.
An excerpt from the email reads:
“Given the heightened political and social atmosphere surrounding Afghanistan, it is important to remind our uniformed personnel (active duty and reservists on temporary active duty) and military retirees of their responsibilities and obligations under Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and Department of Defense Directive 1344.10.
While it is vital to protect the constitutional right of freedom of expression for these groups, consistent with mission accomplishment, national security, and good order and discipline, it’s important to remember certain limitations. Namely, uniformed personnel and military retirees are prohibited from disrespecting senior government leadership (e.g. the President, Vice President, Congress, Secretary of Defense, Service Secretaries, etc.).”
Further along in the Captain’s email, he clarifies that the directive also applies to ONI “civilians,” who he specifically instructs to keep their criticism of the President at a minimum.
He even referred to criticism of Biden, or other corrupt officials in his regime, as “dangerous.”
The email continues:
“Even for civilians, you are reminded of the danger that your public comments will/could be attributed to ONI or the Department of Defense. While you are entitled to your opinion and to share your opinion amongst those you know and trust, being too vocal in criticism of, say, the President or members of the military and civilian leadership may reflect poorly on ONI. It is important to share your opinions, if you choose to do so, in a professional manner that does not call into question your employment, the Department of Defense, or the federal government as a whole.”
The Captain even shamelessly defends the fraudulent Biden regime’s handling of the debacle in Afghanistan, telling the service members that their blood, sweat and tears they – and their loved ones – put in over the past 20 years to fight the Taliban, wasn’t a waste of time.
“After Kabul fell to the Taliban last week, the scenes of chaos and desperation have been hard for all Americans to watch, especially for those of us in the national security establishment, as well as those who served selflessly in Afghanistan over the last 20 years.
Watching the Taliban sweep back into power after two decades of investment can be a bitter pill to swallow”
A bitter pill to swallow indeed, thanks to Joe Biden.
