Hawley Pledges to Slow-Walk Biden Pentagon, State Nominees over Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday, pledged to slow-walk the Defense and State Department nominees from President Joe Biden until Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan resign after the botch Afghanistan withdrawal.

Hawley mentioned that, for the last month, Americans have “watched horrified at the scenes of chaos and terror and bloodshed, Americans trapped at the Kabul airport terrified as the enemy closed in,” and 13 U.S. servicemembers were killed. In addition, the Biden administration left hundreds of Americans trapped in the country now controlled by the jihadist organization.

“For 20 years, our soldiers who fought in Afghanistan did what we sent them there to do. They went after al Qaeda and killed Osama bin laden and prevented the terrorists from using Afghanistan as a base for attacking [America],” the Republican said on the Senate floor.
