Defense Secretary Takes Full Responsibility

Lloyd Austin, US defense secretary, said that he takes full responsibility for keeping his week-long hospitalization a secret for a still-unspecified medical condition.

“I recognize I could have done a better job ensuring the public was appropriately informed. I commit to doing better,” Mr. Austin said.

The statement came as the AP news agency reported that senior Biden administration leaders, members of Congress and top Pentagon officials were unaware for days that Austin had been hospitalized.

The defense department didn’t specify the medical condition Mr. Austin suffered from.
