August 26, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08), Fort Bragg's Congressman, released the following statement after today's deadly attack at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul that resulted in the loss of numerous U.S. service members:
"Today's attack is horrific and utterly devastating. As Fort Bragg's Congressman, I am livid President Biden's failed withdrawal has now led to a number of U.S. service member casualties. Renee and I are praying for their families.
"President Biden's incompetence put our troops in this situation. Now our focus needs to be on how we go forward. Our focus needs to be on how we complete the mission of getting every American and ally out safely and ensure the safety of our troops on the ground. President Biden must address our nation immediately."
