More on Ellis at NSA. Trump met with Pentagon Acting chief Miller on Friday, ahead of order to install him by Saturday. W @EricSchmittNYT  & @nytmike

@johnismay  @cjchiversThey  also bombed the Amiriyah shelter in Baghdad, killing more than 400 civilians. Pentagon & MoD in London claimed it was a command centre. It wasn’t. I was there, had a good look round unsupervised over several days and saw the bodies.

Pentagon declassifies three previously leaked top secret U.S. Navy videos of "unexplained aerial phenomena"—and that some believe could show UFOs.

Can I let you in on a secret? We have the money to extend unemployment benefits and send the American people $1,200 direct payments. The Pentagon spends $2,000,000,000 a day.

Reminder to those saying withdrawing troops may cause a “clash” with Generals/Pentagon: there is only one Commander in Chief, it is ⁦⁦⁦ @realDonaldTrump ⁩ and when he orders the troops out of Afghanistan, the only proper answer is “Yes sir.”

I am very pleased @realDonaldTrump  asked my friend Col. Doug Macgregor to help quickly end the war in Afghanistan. This and other picks for Pentagon are about getting the right people who will finally help him stop our endless wars.

A proposal by Pentagon officials to slash Military Healthcare by $2.2 billion dollars has been firmly and totally rejected by me. We will do nothing to hurt our great Military professionals & heroes as long as I am your President. Thank you!

The GOP including $0 for the USPS, $0 for our elections, and $21,300,000,000 for the Pentagon in a COVID relief bill is the real looting in America.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but including another $21,300,000,000 for the Pentagon in a bill that refuses to extend extra unemployment benefits for 25,000,000 people is the real looting in America.

The Senate Republican plan: - $29,400,000,000 for the Pentagon - $0 for hazard pay - $0 for nutrition assistance - $0 for the uninsured/under-insured - $0 for the Postal Service - $0 for state and local governments - 100% deduction for three-martini CEO lunches What a disaster.

Sad but not surprising. The Senate GOP chose to let $600 a week in unemployment benefits expire for 30 million Americans, but had no problem giving the Pentagon another $740 billion. We need new national priorities. Let's stand with workers, not the Military Industrial Complex.

Two shocking facts of this administration's failures to lead on COVID: 1. The Pentagon offered HHS 2,000 ventilators but haven't been told where to send them 2. The DOD offered 16 labs for processing tests two weeks ago, still not in use
