Congressman Alex X. Mooney Statement on Afghanistan

WASHINGTON – Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) today issued the following statement on the situation in Afghanistan. 

“The quick and total collapse of the Afghanistan government to the Taliban is a disastrous development for the region. The Taliban is a terrorist regime that bears responsibility for one of the most heinous and violent attacks on America. President Biden’s July 8th comment that ‘the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely’ has been proven false. This is a sad day for America and her freedom loving allies around the world.”
