It’s been over two months since the last troop left Afghanistan.  In the two months since the disastrous withdrawal that took the lives of 13 servicemembers and hundreds of our allies, no one in the Biden Administration has taken responsibility.  

Unfortunately, today was more of the same.  The Deputy Secretary for Management and Resources of the State Department, Brian P. McKeon, testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and refused to answer my questions about his decision to end a Trump-era program that was responsible for coordinating the evacuation of diplomats in the case of emergency.  

He also would not commit to sharing classified planning documents (which members of the Foreign Affairs Committee have the clearance to view) related to the withdrawal. 

It all begs the question: what is this Administration trying to hide?
