@LloydAustin : Not a single [military aircraft] sortie was missed for maintenance, fuel, or logistical problems. It was the largest airlift conducted in U.S. history, and it was executed in 17 days.
@SecDef : We planned to evacuate between 70,000-80,000 people. We evacuated more than 124,000.
@LloydAustin : As we consider these tactical issues today, we must also ask ourselves some equally tough questions about the wider war itself, and pause to think about the lessons that we have learned over the past 20 years.
@LloydAustin : We want to lead with diplomacy in every case. But if deterrence fails, then you must fight. You fight to win.
“The way that you control public health outbreak is not to hide data, it's to be transparent to the public & to your partners going forward so that we have a clear understanding of the risk and then we can take appropriate measures to mitigate.” -Brig. Gen. (Dr.) Paul Friedrichs
