WASHINGTON– U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released a statement following reports that President Biden has refused to extend his self-imposed withdrawal deadline in Afghanistan:

“Letting the Taliban dictate our military strategy is an absolute disgrace. We have a commitment to every American and Afghan ally to get them out safely. No one should be left behind because of an arbitrary, self-imposed deadline based on a campaign promise.”
