WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after four Marines were killed in explosions at the Hamid Karzai International Airport.
“At least four United States Marines are dead who did not need to die. Please pray for their families and for the other service members who sustained injuries. This tragedy is the direct result of the failure of this incompetent withdrawal plan, and I fear the worst is still to come. We need all hands on deck to prevent further loss of life. Congress must immediately reconvene and take control of this situation, which has spiraled out of control. A good first step would be passing my bill to ensure no Americans are left behind.”
