WASHINGTON–Rep. Jackie Walorski said Friday that Pres. Biden has failed as commander-in-chief and should resign the presidency, following the deaths of 13 military members in suicide bombings near the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.

“The Biden Administration’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan has endangered American lives and emboldened our adversaries. Yesterday, the death of 13 servicemembers in the line of duty was heartbreaking and horrific. The brutal terrorist attack that claimed these American heroes and nearly 100 Afghans was tragic,” said the Republican Congresswoman in a statement on her website.

“This botched operation is a direct consequence of the president’s decision to entrust the safety of American citizens and our Armed Forces to the goodwill of the Taliban,” she said.

Walorski represents northern Indiana.

Walorski said America owes it to its military and family members to hold Biden responsible and accountable as commander-in-chief for what she characterized as “missteps” that jeopardized the military’sl mission of evacuating American citizens, partners, and vetted allies from Afghanistan.

“As the president has said repeatedly, the buck stops with him – and I agree. The buck must stop here. President Biden has demonstrated that he is unfit to serve as commander-in-chief, and, therefore, must resign.”
