POST EDITORIAL BOARD: How Could Biden Not Notice His Defense Secretary Was Missing?

By The Post Editorial Board

With US forces under regular attack across the Mideast and the Navy actively engaged with Houthi forces in the Red Sea, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was out of commission in the hospital from Monday on.

Worse, no one told the White House; worse yet, neither President Biden nor National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan noticed.

Not until the Pentagon let Sullivan know on Thursday.

Anyone thinking that the nation is well-led despite Biden’s blatant feebleness better think again: Austin and his deputies ignored the law here, while Sullivan was plainly asleep at the switch.

Again, with American forces regularly under fire, and our friends in Ukraine and Israel fully at war with Russia and Hamas.

Oh, and the public was kept in the dark until Friday.

Meanwhile, Austin’s surprise hospitalization left Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks filling in for days — from her vacation in Puerto Rico.

Biden, 81, returned Tuesday from (another) vacation in the Caribbean, and presumably focused the rest of the week on preparing for his Friday campaign speech (again) declaring that our democracy is in danger because Trump.

All of which apparently left him no time for ringing up his defense secretary to check on any foreign threats to said democracy.
