Wilson follows up on Biden claims of military support for Afghanistan plan

Congressman Joe Wilson, a Senior Member of the House Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committees, sent a letter to President Joe Biden following yesterday’s press conference where he claimed “The military from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to the commanders in the field, have all contacted me, usually by letter, saying they subscribe to the mission as designed.” Highlights from Congressman Wilson’s letter to Biden are quoted below:

“For months, I have been imploring the White House to heed military advice to maintain United States Forces in Afghanistan to fight terrorists abroad and protect American families…the recent events in Kabul are devastating to our nation and allies.”

“As a Member of Congress serving on both the House Armed Services Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee, it is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of U.S. military operations.”
