GOP rep: If Biden doesn’t evacuate Afghan interpreters, ‘blood will be on his hands’ | The Hill

Must Read

Michael Waltz, a Republican congressman and former Green Beret, urged President Biden on Wednesday to direct the urgent repatriation of Afghans who assisted US soldiers, warning that “blood will be on his hands” if he does not.

Years of setbacks have hampered the program, which now has a queue of hundreds of applicants. The Biden administration has stated that it is speeding up the application process.
