대표. Scott Franklin, R-Fla., — a former Naval aviator — told Fox News in a Thursday interview that he was “not surprised” by the attack.
“I’m not surprised. It’s hard to watch but I’m not surprised,” Franklin said. “I mean ISIS-K, they’re all intertwined, all interrelated, they feed off of one another. Not at all a surprise to me.”
Franklin said he wasn’t sure what could be done to help Americans get out amid the chaos and if suicide bombings would be a reoccurrence, calling the situation on the ground in Afghanistan “a damn mess.”
“모르겠어요, it’s just a damn mess… We put ourselves at the mercy of an enemy that we fought for twenty years and at a point we had under control. We relinquished any upper hand we had against them.”

“I can tell you there’s no way we can humanly get all of our American citizens and Afghan partners out of country by that time.

He will have blood on his hands, people are gonna die,” McCaul said during a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon.
