In my opinion, the biggest worry for Pentagon yesterday was not Trump supporters doing something crazy, which they did.
The army’s bigger worry probably was getting a order asking them to move in with big guns in DC, capture the capitol, arrest senior leaders etc etc.
And only one person could have asked the US military to do any of that, and that was the same person asking the protestors to come to storm the Capitol.
This must have been a crazy decision point for the Pentagon. They must have decided to let police do all the crowd control no matter how bad the situation initially.
The Pentagon leadership must have decided to delay moving in with guns and ammo and the National Guard no matter who was asking and definitely move slow.
When the dust settles, this will be the narrative you will hear from the professionals at the top of the military brass.
