Rep. Steube’s Statement on the One Year Anniversary of the Fall of Kabul

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) today released the following statement to mark the one year anniversary of the Fall of Kabul, Afghanistan:

“Today we mark the one year anniversary of the Fall of Kabul, when the Taliban gained control of Afghanistan and undid decades of U.S. efforts in the region.
America is just as angered and frustrated at Joe Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal today as we were the day it occurred. Over the last year, Biden and his incompetent administration have tried every way possible to escape accountability. We’ve seen the State Department obstruct the independent, congressionally mandated oversight of the withdrawal. Secretary Blinken can’t seem to get a number straight on how many Americans are still stranded without U.S. assistance. To further our frustrations, we recently learned Al-Qaeda has reemerged in Afghanistan.
We won’t stop working until every question is answered, every American is safe at home, every piece of U.S. equipment is recovered or destroyed, and the Biden Administration is held fully accountable for their dereliction of duty.”
