CONGRESSMAN WILSON ON BIDEN DECISION TO WITHDRAW TROOPS FROM AFGHANISTAN

Apr 13, 2021
Press Release

Today, Congressman Joe Wilson issued the following statement on reports that President Joe Biden intends to completely withdraw troops from Afghanistan by September:  

“President Biden’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan without ensuring the Taliban live up to their commitments is misguided and disturbing. The Biden Administration owes Congress its plan to maintain a counterterrorism force in Afghanistan to protect our vital national interests, which include ensuring it never becomes a safe haven for al Qaeda and murderous ISIS terrorists.

“The best way to protect American families is to defeat terrorists overseas, the survival of our civilization depends on our proactive resistance in the Global War on Terrorism. We must never forget that the murderous attacks of 9/11 were coordinated from a cave in Afghanistan.”
