Rep. Cartwright Statement on Kabul Attack

Today, U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright (PA-08) made this statement on the attack at Kabul airport, which has tragically resulted in the deaths of U.S. servicemembers and Afghan civilians.

“My prayers and deepest condolences go out to the servicemembers, civilians and families affected by this horrific act of violence, and I condemn those responsible in the strongest possible terms. Right now, it is urgently important that the federal government step up efforts to safely evacuate every American citizen and ally from this worsening situation. This attack makes clear that Congress has to continue its support for our intelligence and counterterrorism capabilities in the region to monitor and confront what are serious and ongoing threats to our national security.”
