U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Lead Republican of the House Armed Services Committee, released a statement urging president Biden to vow that the United States will not leave until every last American is safely evacuated from Afghanistan.
“President Biden needs to make it clear to the Taliban that the United States of America does not take orders from terrorists. The President must vow to the American people that the deadline for leaving Afghanistan is when every American is safely out of Afghanistan.
“As President, Joe Biden has an obligation to get every American safely out of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan before he abandons the effort. There was nothing magical about the August 31st deadline when President Biden arbitrarily decided on it months ago and there’s nothing magical about it now.”
