WASHINGTON— Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) released the following statement after it was announced the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan was completed.

 

“This is a sad day for our country,” Mullin said. “Americans have been stranded in Afghanistan by the Biden Administration and are now left to defend themselves from terrorists overrunning the country. One motto of our military is ‘leave no man behind.’ But today, that’s exactly what President Biden did. American exit did not have to be this way and there must be accountability for this complete and utter failure. The service and sacrifice of our service members and their families was not made in vain, and it will never be forgotten.”
