Congressman Joe Wilson issued the following statement:

“On this tragic anniversary, I am grateful for our military who have kept American families safe for 20 years. In my service on the House Floor for over 500 times, I urged ‘We will never forget September 11th and the Global War on Terrorism’ sadly, top leaders have forgotten.

“Roxanne and I cherish our four sons who have served in Iraq, Egypt, the Southern Border, and Afghanistan.

“Gruesomely, the clear lesson of an attack from Afghanistan has been forgotten by Joe Biden who has surrendered Afghanistan to Taliban-Al Qaeda murderous terrorists.  The entire country, with 5000 prospective suicide bombers released at Bagram, is a safe haven; and with Biden’s failures on the Southern Border, crossings are allowed putting American families at the greatest risk of attack ever.”
