Rep. Rogers Statement on Two-Year Anniversary of Terrorist Attack at Kabul Airport

 WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (AL-03), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on the two-year anniversary of the terrorist attack that took place at Hamid Karzai International Airport on August 26, 2021 in Kabul, Afghanistan. The attack resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemembers and over 100 innocent Afghan civilians. 

“U.S. Servicemembers have never hesitated to answer the call to defend freedom in the face of evil. Two years ago, an ISIS-K terrorist killed 13 U.S. servicemembers who were protecting civilians fleeing Afghanistan. These young men and women embodied the very best of our nation – we must never forget their selfless bravery. 
“It is unfathomable that two years after this horrific attack no one in the Biden administration has been held accountable for the botched withdrawal that led to the deaths of 13 Americans. I will continue to investigate the Biden administration’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal and seek the accountability the American people deserve.”
