(TruthandLiberty.com) – On Thursday, August 28, thirteen US service members died tragically in Afghanistan. They were stationed outside the Kabul International Airport when a suicide bomber detonated a car that killed them and approximately 100 Afghans trying to flee. The terrorist event occurred days before President Biden’s self-imposed deadline to end the evacuation of American citizens and Afghan allies and the withdrawal of the US military from the war-torn country.

On Tuesday, August 31, House Republicans expressed their frustration with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). After a moment of silence on the House floor, multiple Republicans, many of whom are veterans, said Pelosi denied them the opportunity to read the 13 names of the fallen soldiers who gave their lives in service to the country.
Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fl) lost his legs fighting in Afghanistan. On Twitter, the veteran said Pelosi didn’t acknowledge the congressman’s wishes and summarily closed down the House. He questioned how much lower Pelosi could go.
Joining in chorus with Mast was Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) and Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL). Each denounced Pelosi’s action in their own ways and said the fallen heroes and the servicemembers deserved better.
