Cotton Statement on Kabul Airport Bombing

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after the bombing outside the Kabul airport:

“Twelve U.S. troops sacrificed their lives today to rescue their fellow Americans fleeing Afghanistan. We mourn their deaths and grieve with their families. To honor their lives, we should finish their mission: the United States must use all its might to rescue our remaining countrymen in Afghanistan and bring justice to the terrorists responsible for today’s savagery. We must send the clear and unmistakable message that we leave no man behind, and if you kill our service members, your days are numbered.”
