MURFREESBORO, TN)– Congressman Scott DesJarlais (R-TN-04) released the following statement regarding today’s deadly attacks at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.


“Today’s terrorist attacks at the Kabul airport facilitated by the Taliban are a failure of the Biden administration. I send my sincerest condolences to the families who lost loved ones to these senseless attacks and will be praying for the swift recovery of those injured. Among those killed today were U.S. service members. We are forever in debt to them and their families for their valiant service to our country.


I join Leader McCarthy in his call to bring Congress back into session. We must take action to ensure that no other American lives are put in jeopardy with little or no plan or strategy.  It is past time for President Biden to step up and take corrective action to clean up the chaos he and his administration have created in Afghanistan.”
