WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“I never thought I’d live to see the day when an American President would abandon our country’s citizens and orders our troops to back down from a fight. Hundreds of Americans are now hostages to terrorists.
“Those who served in Afghanistan deserve our gratitude and represent the best of our nation. Their leadership failed them with surrender and a disastrous withdrawal, which rests squarely on the shoulders of senior military officials and the Biden administration.
“From 40 years of coaching I can promise you that victory on the field brings more recruits and more wins. The president’s surrender of Afghanistan will be a terrorist recruiting boom. Those who wish to do our nation harm are now more emboldened than ever.
“The American people deserve answers and accountability from the administration and senior military officials for this poorly executed plan.”
