The nation’s top military leaders are in their second day of testimony before Congress about the withdrawal from Afghanistan. General Mark Milley has revealed that President Trump originally ordered the withdrawal of all American troops by January 15, before walking that decision back some days later. Milley also has testified specifically about details revealed in “Peril,” the new book from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa — notably information about phone calls placed by Milley to reassure a nervous Chinese general. As all this unfolds on Capitol Hill, the legendary Watergate reporter speaks with Walter Isaacson about Milley’s revealing testimony. Originally aired on September 29, 2021.
