Cancer Bombshell Hits Biden Admin

( – Underscoring the Biden administration’s disregard for proper protocol, thus endangering national security at a time of increasing global threats, it was recently disclosed that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin had not informed the White House of his recent extended hospitalization.

In the face of mounting scrutiny and sharp criticism, Austin’s medical team has confirmed he is currently undergoing treatment for prostate cancer.

Following a diagnosis in early December, Austin was initially admitted to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, before Christmas for prostatectomy surgery.

He was readmitted right after New Year’s Eve and was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection after experiencing severe nausea and lower-body pain. The Pentagon expressed optimism about his recovery, stating, “We anticipate a full recovery.” During his hospital stay, Austin remained conscious and did not require general anesthesia.

The Pentagon’s recent revelation that Joe Biden was unaware of Austin’s stay in the hospital for days sparked controversy. This lack of communication led some lawmakers to call for Austin’s resignation.

While not planning to dismiss Austin for this communication lapse, the White House is reviewing protocols regarding situations where a cabinet secretary needs to delegate duties due to incapacitation.

White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients issued a memo requiring agencies to inform the Office of Cabinet Affairs and the chief of staff via written notification if officials delegate responsibilities during absences.

The news of Austin’s health issues emerged shortly after the memo’s release. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre addressed the situation, stating, “[Austin] has taken responsibility, and so I think that’s important. So I would point you to that.” She reiterated Biden’s confidence in Secretary Austin, underscoring the priority for his health and return to the Pentagon.

Additionally, the Pentagon initiated a separate review to ensure clarity and transparency regarding Austin’s hospitalization and the transfer of authority to Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, who was also not immediately informed of his condition.
