Washington, DC – Representative Lloyd Smucker released the following statement regarding the situation in Afghanistan:

“The scenes the world witnessed this weekend will long be remembered. President Biden and his administration have failed the American and Afghan people by completely miscalculating the strength of the Taliban and failing to prepare for the withdrawal of our nation’s armed forces. Our nation is put at greater risk for future terrorist attacks with the Taliban ruling. The Afghan people and the world will suffer the consequences for years to come due to the renewed ruling of this region by jihadists. We must pray for safety as Americans and Afghan allies are evacuated. We must pray for those who serve and served in the United States Armed Forces,” said Rep. Lloyd Smucker.
