More than 120 retired generals and admirals have published an open letter questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election as well as President Biden’s fitness to be commander-in-chief, New York Post reports.
The open letter, which bears the heading of from a group calling itself Flag Officers 4 America, claims the elections were rigged in Biden’s favor and warned that Americans are in a fight for survival “as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776.”
Among the signatories are retired Rear Adm. John Poindexter, former national security adviser under Ronald Reagan, and retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence under George W. Bush and executive vice president of the Family Research Council.
The letter echoes repeated claims made by former President Donald Trump that the election was stolen from him by Democrats.
“Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people’ our Constitutional Republic is lost. Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. The ‘Rule of Law’ must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity. The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020,” the letter read, accusing critics of voter ID laws of engaging in a tyrannical intimidation tactic.
The signatories also say Biden’s mental and physical condition cannot be ignored.
“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. He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night,” it says.
The letter touches on a number of controversial issues, including relations with China, the Iran nuclear deal, and the Keystone Pipeline and also accuses lawmakers of using the military as political pawns. It has been met with criticism from former military leaders claiming it “hurts the military and by extension it hurts the country.”
