Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) issued the following statement subsequent the announcement the United States has formally withdrawn troops from Afghanistan.

“America’s longest war has now concluded.  The hasty withdrawal–tied to an arbitrary deadline–resulted in the murder of 13 U.S. servicemembers and an unidentified and hazardous foreseeable future for People and Afghan allies who however continue to be in-country.  The Taliban can’t be trusted, and their terrorist activity poses a continued menace across the world.  With the information the United States formally completed its mission in Afghanistan, several concerns keep on being about the very poor execution of our withdrawal from the region.  

  • Did the Biden Administration have information and facts and fail to make alternatives that could have prevented a terrorist attack killing 13 U.S. servicemembers and in excess of 150 Afghan civilians?
  • What was the Biden Administration’s rationale for closing the strategic Bagram Air Base before all American and ally personnel ended up out of the country?
  •  Did the Administration willingly give the city of Kabul above to the Taliban, an intercontinental terrorist team?
  • What U.S. navy property and equipment are now in the possession of the Taliban?
  • What is the Administration performing to defend the hundreds of U.S. citizens and 1000’s of allies they left at the rear of?
  • Did the Administration move the names of U.S. Citizens, Legal Permanent Citizens, SIV recipients, and other susceptible Afghans to the Taliban throughout the evacuation method, placing their lives at more risk?
  • Why did the Administration not take steps to enhance the processing of SIV and other situations connected to the U.S. Embassy in Kabul prior to our evacuation?

 

“The Administration’s string of colossal failures with regards to this withdrawal ought to be brought to light.  It is very important Congress conduct oversight of our withdrawal from Afghanistan and be certain full accountability.

“I supply my many thanks to both diplomatic and army staff billed with an impossible mission in this confined quantity of time, and keep on to pray for the families and mates of the 13 courageous provider users we missing in this endeavor.  The sacrifices built by our provider users about the previous 20 years can’t be understated.  They have served with valor, difference, and honor.”
