(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Sunday, the House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas.) stated that his panel was going to be talking with Biden administration members in order to learn more about the bombing that resulted in 13 service members losing their lives during the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021.
While responding to a question by CNN’s Jake Tapper, McCaul stated that they were planning on talking with both current and former members of the administration, including former White House press secretary Jen Psaki. He added that the messages that she was relaying on behalf of the White House at the time were fundamentally different from what was actually occurring in Afghanistan.
As he pointed out John Kirby had remarked that there were no weapons left behind after the withdrawal, adding that this is “insane” considering “$7 billion of weapons” were left behind. He added that there were tapes that show the cash and weapons that were left during the withdrawal.
He added that they wanted to have all the members testify to determine what had happened. He added that while they did not know what had happened as a former federal prosecutor he was going to look at the facts of the case.
McCaul further informed Tapper that his committee had issued subpoenas for several Biden administration members noting that it was their duty to provide insight into what had happened that had caused the deaths of the fallen service members. He added that the families of the service members who had lost their lives also deserved to have access to answers and learn what had happened.
