Congresswoman Kat Cammack Issues Statement On Terror Attacks In Afghanistan
August 26, 2021
Press release from the office of Congresswoman Kat Cammack
Congresswoman Kat Cammack (R-FL-03) issued the following statement on the loss of servicemembers and the catastrophe unfolding in Afghanistan.
“There are no words to describe what we’re watching unfold before us. We need accountability now. The sheer lack of leadership, utter incompetence, and silence from the Biden administration today shows us just how grossly inept this failure of an administration has become. The deaths of our servicemembers were preventable with a leader who cared about this situation, instead of shifting blame, pointing fingers, and absolving himself of any and all responsibility. Simply put, saying ‘the buck stops with me’ isn’t enough. If President Biden really believes what he says, he’ll resign immediately. Anything less is unacceptable.
“It’s unconscionable to leave American lives up to the mercy of terrorists. We have to ensure their safety and we have to do it now. We must make it clear that these attacks will not be tolerated and will only be met with swift and decisive acts that guarantee this does not happen again.
“I join my colleagues in calling for an emergency session of Congress. No member of Congress or this administration should be on vacation while Americans’ lives are at risk.
“May God continue to bless our troops in Afghanistan and around the world. We will continue doing everything we can to ensure our citizens make it home, regardless of an arbitrary deadline. We will hold this administration fully accountable.”
