Retired U.S. Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor said the "globalist elite" on Capitol Hill, at the Pentagon, and in the State Department want the ongoing 17-year-old War in Afghanistan to continue. Macgregor said leaving the Mid-East nation would mean a hit to the defense budget in an interview with Tucker Carlson on FOX News.
"This is what the globalist elite on the Hill wants," he said about the ongoing war. "They're behind this. They and their Lobby. And now, the globalist elite actually includes the senior ranks in the Pentagon as well as most of the people in the State Department. So, there's enormous pressure on the President to stay."
"All of this is part of keeping us engaged overseas. And remember, it's the overseas commitments that are the basis for the enormous defense spending. Take those commitments away, and the defense budget starts to decline precipitously," the retired general said.
