WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the eighteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
“Eighteen years ago pure evil attacked our shores. That evil still exists in the world today. We must fight it over there — working with others, so it never comes here again. Every day I strive to see that we never sustain another 9/11, and I know many others still in the fight strive to do the same.
“I will continue to work with President Trump to smartly defend our homeland against radical Islam – which exists in Afghanistan and many other places.
“We will do what it takes, for as long as it takes, to make sure there are no future 9/11s.
“God bless the fallen and the injured and their families – we will never forget.
“Finally, to those Members of Congress and others who want to withdraw from Afghanistan: read the intelligence assessment that describes what will come our way. You owe that to your constituents, to the victims of 9/11, and to future generations. If we abandon Afghanistan out of frustration and weariness, we pave the way for another 9/11.”
