The article provided more information by stating:
The Pentagon waited three days after Austin arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to inform senior officials in the White House’s National Security Council of Austin’s condition, including that he had spent four days in the intensive care unit.
On January 2, 2024, Austin publicly acknowledged and took responsibility for the delay in disclosing his medical status in an official statement, as reported by AP News. He started by providing specific details about the situation.
I recognize I could have done a better job ensuring the public was appropriately informed. I commit to doing better. But this is important to say: this was my medical procedure, and I take full responsibility for my decisions about disclosure.
Lawmakers are raising concerns about the lack of transparency in Austin, considering it a significant security threat to Americans. Alabama Rep. Jerry Carl took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to express his concerns about Austin’s situation, stating: “Some lawmakers believe Austin’s lack of transparency was a significant security threat to Americans and are demanding answers.”
Yet another example of the Biden Administration eroding the trust of the American people. This is unacceptable.
