“The United States went into Afghanistan to fight terrorism. Veinte años después, los Estados Unidos. is gone, but terrorism is not,” Gowdy noted.
Remarking on Gabbard’s military experience, Gowdy asked for her opinion regarding the United States’ actions in Afghanistan over the last twenty years.
“General, when we really look at the last twenty years that we spent there, I think there’s a few important lessons to take away. Our mission to go into Afghanistan, initially to go after Al-Qaeda, the jihadist terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, declared war against us, was justified. We sent special forces in there who very expeditiously and effectively defeated Al-Qaeda,” Gabbard began.
