U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan declined to guarantee post-August 31st evacuations for all Americans in Afghanistan. 

“Unacceptable. The White House’s politically-driven timetable cannot outweigh American lives. America’s message, to our friends and to the Taliban, should be crystal clear: We will move heaven and earth to get every last American in Afghanistan back to American soil, period. That’s the only answer.”
