Republican Candidate for President Will Hurd: The Unfading Stain of Biden’s Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal

Today, former Texas Rep. and 2024 presidential candidate Will Hurd released the following statement to mark the second anniversary of the fall of Kabul:

“Today marks the solemn two-year anniversary of President Biden’s shameful withdrawal from Afghanistan that killed 13 American service members, exposed tens of thousands of our Afghan allies to Taliban retribution, and damaged our credibility on the global stage. The fall of Kabul into the hands of the Taliban under Biden’s leadership is an unfading stain on his presidency.

“Two years later, the horrific images of civilians clinging to planes and American troops left exposed and defenseless against our enemies remain etched into our nation’s collective memory. And yet, not a single person has been held accountable. Not a single person lost their job. The American people are owed a clear explanation of the decision-making that led to the chaos of that dark day.

“I served in Kabul as a CIA officer. I know first-hand the conditions on the ground and the implications of our withdrawal. The Taliban is stronger than ever, al Qaeda is rebuilding, and our adversaries are emboldened. Under my administration, I will hold those responsible for the disastrous withdrawal accountable, I will make clear to our foes that the U.S. is back in full force, I will assure our allies that when we fight, we fight together, and I will ensure that America will never negotiate with terrorists again.”

The choice we face

In this election, we have a choice. We can continue down the path of divisive politics and short-term thinking, or we can choose a new direction.

We can choose a future that is grounded in common sense, that prioritizes the needs of the American people, and that builds on our strengths as a nation.

Together, we can make this vision a reality.

Together, we can create an America that thrives on innovation, that provides opportunities for all, and that leads the world not just in power, but in principle.
