Press Release

The chaos and confusion of the debacle that unfolded in Afghanistan is both infuriating and disheartening. It’s a disaster on multiple levels and, if nothing else, President Biden’s determination to withdraw could have at least been accompanied with a plan. 

Before talking about how or why this happened and where we go from here, something needs to be said for those who served our country in Afghanistan.
