Posey: Afghanistan is now just as dangerous as it was before 9/11
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) released the following statement regarding the events in Afghanistan.
“Recent events in Afghanistan underscore the need for a proper plan when conducting military operations. Every effort should have been made to evacuate Americans, our allies and military equipment before pulling out,” said Rep. Posey.
“While I have long supported the winding down of U.S. military presence in the region, it’s tragic that after 20 years, tremendous sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform, and trillions of dollars, Afghanistan is now just as dangerous as it was before 9/11. Strong leadership is needed to protect American lives on the ground and ensure our national security moving forward.”
