Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman David Kustoff (TN-08) issued the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan and the current deteriorating conditions.

“President Biden’s strategy in Afghanistan, and lack thereof, has put many innocent lives at risk and has enabled the Taliban to enact complete chaos and brutal violence.  These last few days and today in Afghanistan resemble the fall of Saigon, a dark time in American and international history. It is evident that there was no clear American strategy from the Biden Administration to wind down American troops from Afghanistan.  Without a doubt, there has been a clear dereliction of duty and responsibility demonstrated by President Biden and members of his administration.   Because of President Biden’s poor planning and lack of leadership, the world is a much more dangerous place today,” said Rep. Kustoff.
