WASHINGTON, DC— Today, Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) issued a statement on Afghanistan.
“My heart goes out to the families of the servicemembers who lost their lives in Kabul today. We can never forget those who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. Today is a dark day. It did not have to happen this way. The fundamental misunderstanding of the situation on the ground in Afghanistan, a faulty plan for withdrawal, and poor strategic decision making in Washington put our troops in harm’s way. We desperately need competent leadership now to protect all Americans in Afghanistan. Our prayers are with the servicemembers who continue to execute this dangerous mission and the Americans attempting to evacuate. God bless these men and women,” said Congressman Steil.
