"We need to take all necessary action to get Americans out of Afghanistan and make it crystal clear that the full force of the American military will be used against anyone standing in our way."

RENO, NV – Adam Laxalt issued the following statement on today's deadly terrorist attacks in Kabul: "Jaime and I join all Americans in grieving the devastating loss of our U.S. Marines murdered in today's terrorist attacks, as well as praying for the safety and speedy recovery of those injured. As they meet such harrowing violence with such heroic valor, the brave servicemen and women on the ground in Afghanistan represent the very best of our country. "Today's horrific events are a direct result of a catastrophic failure of leadership by the Biden Administration. They put our brave men and women in harm's way to bail his presidency out of a crisis of their own negligent creation. We need to take all necessary action to get Americans out of Afghanistan and make it crystal clear that the full force of the American military will be used against anyone standing in our way."
