Biden’s Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered military-wide stand-downs pausing regular activity to “address white nationalism” in the ranks and rid the military of “extremists and racists.”
Lloyd Austin also stripped several hundred appointees of their posts on Pentagon advisory boards over the weekend.
The secretary’s goal was to purge the department of Trump loyalists who were appointed to various advisory boards at the last minute.
Lloyd Austin also called for an “immediate suspension” of all committee operations while the Pentagon conducts a review of 42 advisory committees.
