Republican members of Congress criticized President Joe Biden after blast attack At Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, 11 US Navy medics and one US Marine medic were killed and many more civilians were killed.

Texas Representative Tony Gonzalez, a Navy veteran, has called for resignations from the Biden administration.

“My biggest fear is that these attacks today are just the beginning of what we will continue to see as the administration fails to get Americans and our Afghan allies to safety,” the new representative tweeted. We do not need statements from the administration at the moment – we need immediate resignations.

Representative Jim Banks of Indiana, who served in Afghanistan, blamed Biden for the attack.

“Responsibility for this tragedy lies directly with Joe Biden,” Mr. Banks said. His incompetence meant that American blood was shed. This was possible and unforgivable! “

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call on Congress to return to session so members can be briefed and vote on Representative Mike Gallagher of the Wisconsin legislature to keep troops in Afghanistan until every American is out of the nation.

“In the meantime, President Biden must take decisive action to protect our forces, our citizens, and our allies without regard to the arbitrary deadline,” McCarthy said in a statement.

Dan Crenshaw, the Texas representative who lost an eye in Afghanistan, said Biden needed to fix the problems he said the president had created.

We’re still at war. He tweeted: “You didn’t end the war,” you gave the enemy a new edge. “Go on the offensive, prove superiority, and don’t leave until all of our citizens and allies are safe.”

Michigan Representative Peter Major, who earlier this week traveled to Afghanistan with Representative Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, called the attack the worst possible outcome.

“Breaking, terrible news – a nightmare scenario we were afraid of,” he said.

Senator Lindsey Graham calls for the reopening of Bagram Air Force Base After a suicide attack Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul wounded up to three US Marines and killed many civilians.

“I have advocated for days that Bagram Air Base should be reopened as Kabul Airport is hard to defend and was the only evacuation outlet,” the Republican senator from South Carolina said on Twitter Thursday.

Mr. Graham said the United States has the ability to establish a presence at Bagram to continue moving Americans and allies.

“The biggest mistake in this disaster is abandoning Bagram,” Graham said.

“Retaking Bagram will put our military at risk, but I think those involved in the process will gladly accept that risk because it will restore our honor as a nation and save lives,” Graham said on Twitter.

Mr. Graham’s words came as news broke from Kabul of an explosion at the airport.

“We can confirm that the explosion at Abe Gate was the result of a complex attack that resulted in a number of American and civilian casualties,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. “We can also confirm at least one more explosion at or near the Baron Hotel, a short distance from Abbey Gate. We will continue to update.”
