RELEASE: Cicely Davis Slams Biden for Failed Retreat in Afghanistan

St. Louis Park, MN-  Candidate for U.S. Congress Cicely Davis (MN-5) released the following statement:
“My prayers are with the families and loved ones of the U.S. service members and our allies killed in today’s horrific terrorist attacks outside the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.
“Today’s appalling attacks are the direct result of President Biden’s hasty retreat from Afghanistan. This once-in-a-generation, Biden-made catastrophe should have been prevented by the public resignations of the President’s top staff charged with carrying out his disastrous orders. Instead, the so-called adults in the room have contributed to this horror show by going along without any apparent contingency planning.
“America’s coordination with the Taliban remains an egregious mistake, yet President Biden has allowed them to dictate our withdrawal timeline. This is unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue.
“America owes a debt of gratitude to the U.S. service members who have and continue to serve in Afghanistan. The Biden administration’s highest priority must be to protect American citizens trapped in the country.
“In the days ahead, the Biden administration must be held to account for its actions and this self-made and avoidable disaster.”
