The Pentagon's Failure To Protect Congress Is Coming Into Chilling Focus

As the Senate hears testimony about the deadly insurrection on January 6th, the question of why the Joint Chiefs of Staff waited more than 3 hours before sending help looms large over the proceedings. #Colbert #ALateShow #Monologue

  • I know this episode of the show is a month old at the time of this typing, but I just want to say a few words: My family believes that QAnon is true. I do not, I think a lot of what they say is bollocks, but many of the theories they churn out that my family believes are honestly really disturbing. It’s stressful to listen to and hear them continuing to say that it’s all true.

  • If you've ever read the 9/11 report (or at least relevant parts of it) you will be chilled to know that this is nothing new. When America gets attacked by terrorists the first responders to trust are still civilian agencies. It was not until after civilian authorities called for a grounding of all airplanes in US airspace that the Pentagon responded. The military's contribution? Almost shooting down two civilian airliners by mistake! Bloating the Pentagon budget does not 'support our troops.' It goes primarily to corporate contractors who don't care a flying flock about the defense of our country. They just enjoy being given taxpayer money while hiding behind the 'private corporation' label to avoid oversight. Look up the F-22 and F-35 development histories as examples: the corporations screwed up so... Congress gave them MORE money to fix the problems the corporations created. Oh and these corporations also get the profit from weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. You know, the country where 14 of the 9/11 hijackers (plus Bin Laden himself) were from...

  • Remember, Trump fired DoD/Pentagon chief Esper on Nov. 9, 2 days after Biden was declared the winner. Replaced him with Christopher Miller. This explains why Trump made this change. He wanted his insurrection to succeed. Esper would not break the law for him, but Miller helped by delaying approval of the National Guard for over 3 hours. This was on every news channel. DC is a small city. There is no excuse for this. Maybe officer Sicknick would still be alive if Trump didn't collude with Miller to delay a response.
