Schaumburg, IL – One year ago today, 13 American servicemembers lost their lives in a terrorist attack as President Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan unfolded. These servicemembers were doing their duty as those in command scrambled without a plan to evacuate large numbers so the President could call it a success, leaving behind hundreds of Americans and allies in the process.

Chris Dargis released the following statement: 
“One year ago, we saw the price of ineffective, politically motivated leadership. The President did not have a plan for a withdrawal from Afghanistan, and we lost 13 servicemembers in the process. We need leaders and problem solvers, not career politicians and party loyalists like Raja Krishnamoorthi in Washington.”
