The Kansas delegation of lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are urging President Biden to outline safety plans for Americans and others attempting to flee Afghanistan amid the possibility of more terror attacks.
Following two apparently coordinated attacks by ISIS suicide bombers Thursday, which killed 11 Marines and a Navy medic and wounded at least 15 American service members, Sen. Jerry Moran, Sen. Roger Marshall and Rep. Tracey Mann called out the Biden administration for a lack of leadership.
In a statement Thursday, Sen. Moran says the U.S. must use every resource available to evacuate all Americans, allies and partners and protect service members on the ground. “Americans need leadership and strength from our commander-in-chief. Weakness will only make the situation worse and cost more American lives. President Biden and his administration must immediately make clear how we are going to get people to safety and deliver justice for our fallen service members.”
Sen. Roger Marshall says the horrific deaths were completely preventable and placed the blame squarely on President Biden. “America must respond to these attacks with strength not weakness, but doing so requires a Commander in Chief fit to lead. President Biden must face the American people and address questions on how we will respond to this massacre or he should resign immediately.”
1st District Congressman Tracey Mann says Congress must act to ensure the safety of others in Kabul: “Speaker Pelosi needs to bring Congress back before August 31 to pass legislation prohibiting President Biden’s withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan until every American is out of Afghanistan.”
