Dr. Joyce Statement on Afghanistan

Washington, DC – Congressman John Joyce, M.D. (PA-13) released the following statement on the deteriorating conditions in Afghanistan and how the Biden Administration’s decisions are responsible for this disaster.

“This military and humanitarian crisis was avoidable.  President Biden's failure in leadership to protect the people of Afghanistan and promote our interests will have disastrous consequences for our national security and standing in the international community.

“The recent reports of human rights abuses are heartbreaking - and would have been preventable by a more robust strategy for American withdrawal. My prayers are with the members of our military who have served in Afghanistan as well as the Afghan people during this dangerous and difficult time.”
