WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01) released the following statement on the two-year anniversary of the fall of Kabul, Afghanistan after the disastrous withdrawal of American forces.

“In the two years since the tragic fall of Kabul to the Taliban, it has become increasingly clear that the Biden administration was unprepared for the consequences of their short-sighted withdrawal, and American families and our allies paid the price. The terrifying scenes of civilians hanging from planes, and women separating from their children to ensure their safety, were an embarrassing display of weakness on the global stage and only emboldened our adversaries,” said Congressman Fitzpatrick. “I am committed to holding those who made these devastating foreign policy decisions to account and getting answers for the American people, especially those Gold Star families who lost their loved ones. Such a failure can never happen again, under any administration.”
