President Biden says he has “great confidence” in Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley, as the top general faces scrutiny over explosive claims in a new book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. According to the book, Milley convened top officers after the Capitol riot to review nuclear launch protocols, and told a Chinese general: “If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time.”
