Former Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller shared some shocking news in his new book. Especially about Melania Trump, the former First Lady.
In his book “Soldier Secretary: Warnings from the Battlefield & the Pentagon about America’s Most Dangerous Enemies,” Miller wrote that Melania Trump was present in a key chair in the Situation Room during the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
He even says she offered advice to former President Donald Trump after the attack on ISIS leader Al-Baghdadi, and how to address the media about the deaths that occurred during the attack.
Miller notes in the book, as per an exclusive excerpt obtained by the Daily Caller, that Melania’s presence in the Situation Room was “unexpected” and she arrived while the president’s executive team was “awaiting the final assault” on al-Baghdadi.
He said, “Secretary of Defense Mark Esper quickly gave up his seat and she sat down next to the President, who introduced her to us as if we didn’t know who she was. Her presence was unexpected, to say the least. I wondered how it would play in the press if word got out that the First Lady had popped in to watch a major military operation. Not my problem, I figured. And after all, it was her house.”
The first lady’s presence in the Situation Room had never been disclosed until now.
Miller, who served as the senior director for the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) during al-Baghdadi’s death. His book provides an inside look into his experience in the Trump administration prior to the January 6th riot, his thirty years of military service, and the changes in America’s military since 9/11.
Miller wrote about the killing of ISIS leader Al-Baghdadi. Gen. Marcus Evans Evans told the group that the U.S. “assault force had unleashed their combat dog” into the building with al-Baghdadi.
“With our commandos close behind,” (Al-Baghdadi) was cornered and detonated a suicide vest, killing himself, his two children, and two of his wives,” Miller wrote.
In his book, Miller explained how Donald Trump enquired about the fate of the bodies after the operation. Milley reportedly answered that the bodies would be buried at sea. The president further questioned about the two women who were killed and Milley suggested leaving their bodies on site, as per Miller’s account.
“Don’t you think ISIS will parade their bodies around and make it look like they were innocent?” Donald Trump worried.
Milley said that a “barrage of missiles would pulverize the building” where the operation took place, the book states, but that didn’t matter.
Trump was concerned over how he’d address the American public over the death of the wives and daughters murdered in the suicide bombing. Melania then “took over” with a great idea.
And it worked.
“You should talk about the dog,” she said, Miller wrote. “Everyone loves dogs.”
The book will be coming to stores Feb. 7th.
