Today, the Pentagon announced the end of America’s longest war. DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“Today marks an historic moment in our nation’s history. After thousands of lives lost and trillions spent, President Biden accomplished what no president has been able to – ending a 20-year-long war. We are thankful for the brave service members, diplomats, volunteers, and their families who have sacrificed so much to successfully carry out one of the largest airlifts in U.S. history, protect the American people and deliver justice for the September 11 terrorist attacks. While the Biden administration will continue to work to ensure safe passage for any Americans, Afghan partners, and foreign nationals who want to leave Afghanistan, President Biden has kept his promise and brought our service members home, and ended our nation’s longest war, once and for all.”
