Press Release

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after four Marines were killed in explosions at the Hamid Karzai International Airport.

"At least four United States Marines are dead that did not need to die. Please pray for their families and for the other service members who sustained injuries. This tragedy is the direct result of the administration’s intransigence when faced with the failure of their incompetent withdrawal plan. I fear the worst is still to come. We need all hands on deck to prevent further loss of life. Congress must immediately reconvene and pass my bill to ensure that no Americans are left behind.”
