Congressman Tom Reed: “Afghanistan – Nothing Short Of Horrifying”

August 16, 2021

Today, Rep. Tom Reed released the following statement regarding the situation in Afghanistan.

β€œThe situation in Afghanistan is nothing short of horrifying and is a complete failure of leadership. This Administration made the final decision and executed on its plan. It failed. I can attest to the fact that real people have died as a result. As we speak, our team is continuing to work to help get families of U.S. citizens safely out of the country.

I honestly do not think such efforts will succeed but we must continue to try. This is real-life DC insiders – get to work on solving this problem. We all must stop worrying about the spin or how to politically capitalize on this situation. The number one priority is to save lives.”
