Washington, D.C.  – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO), Vice Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement on the loss of life in Afghanistan.

“I am both heartbroken and incensed by the deaths of our U.S. servicemembers in Afghanistan.  Their bravery knows no bounds.  They knew how dangerous it could be on the ground in Kabul, and they put their lives on the line to rescue innocents from the Taliban and help save fellow Americans.  Their sacrifices will not be forgotten and we will hold President Biden and his Administration accountable.  I continue to pray for their families, all those killed and injured in the terrorist attacks, and for those who are still in Afghanistan.”
