The Pentagon has taken aim at Joe Biden for his recent criticisms of their willingness to help in a transition of power.
Biden insulted Pentagon officials when he said “We have encountered roadblocks from the political leadership at the Department of Defense and the Office of Management and Budget.” But Biden didn’t stop there. He continued, “Right now, we just aren’t getting all the information that we need from the outgoing administration in key national security areas. It’s nothing short of irresponsible.”
But the Pentagon is fighting back.
DOD has been completely transparent with the Biden-Harris Transition Team on the fiscal 2021 budget. We have also provided topline information on the fiscal 2022-2026 program to the Biden-Harris Transition Team. The Office of Management and Budget has not yet authorized the release of the full details of the FY22-26 program.
Breitbart News reports that the “Pentagon has conducted 164 interviews with the Biden transition team with over 400 officials and provided over 5,000 pages of documents. That was ‘far more than initially requested by Biden’s transition team.'”
