Republican members of Congress, who supported the war in Afghanistan and Praised Trump after he signed a surrendering deal with the Taliban, are now slamming President Joe Biden after a suicide bomber attack at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul injured as many as three US Marines and killed multiple civilians.

“The responsibility for this tragedy rests squarely on the shoulders of Joe Biden,” Rep Jim Banks of Indiana, who served in Afghanistan, tweeted.

“His incompetence means American blood has been shed. This was avoidable and is unforgivable!” he added.

Texas Rep Dan Crenshaw, who lost an eye in Afghanistan, said Biden needed to fix the problems that he said the president created.

“We are still at war. You didn’t ‘end the war,’ you just gave the enemy new advantage,” he tweeted. “Go on offense, establish superiority, and don’t leave until all our citizens and allies are safe.”

Michigan Rep Peter Meijer, who earlier this week to an unauthorized trip to Afghanistan, called the attack was the worst possible outcome.

“Heartbreaking and awful news- a nightmare scenario we had been fearing,” he said.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who remained silent as Trump signed a deal with the Taliban, called for Bagram Air Base to reopen

“I urge the Biden Administration to reestablish our presence in Bagram as an alternative to the Kabul airport so that we do not leave our fellow citizens and thousands of Afghan allies behind,” the South Carolina Republican Senator tweeted on Thursday.

“The retaking of Bagram would put our military at risk, but I think those involved in the operation would gladly accept that risk because it would restore our honor as a nation and save lives,” Mr Graham added.
