Senator Marsha Blackburn responds to Classified Briefing with General Austin Miller

Tennesseans Are Stunned By The Joe Biden Administration’s Failure

“In Tennessee, we have Fort Campbell, the 101st Airborne, one of the most deployed units into Afghanistan. We have National Guard units that have served in Afghanistan. And during August, what I repeatedly heard from people is this cannot possibly be happening, and who is advising the President? Why is he not listening to the military commanders on the ground? So people are in Tennessee, and I think all Americans, they are stunned that this transpired. They want answers. They want to make certain that this never happens again.”

The American People Deserve The Truth

“Staff Sergeant Ryan Knauss from the Knoxville area, we lost him as one of the 13. We also remember the 18 that are injured and will have lifelong injuries that they bear from the attack there at the airport. So today is a good start on figuring out exactly what happened, making certain that something like this never happens again, and that the United States government never stands in a position where our enemies do not fear us and our allies do not know that they can trust us.”
