The Daily Caller recently spoke with the families of five U.S. service members killed during the terror attack. “The Gold Star families called for President Joe Biden to resign and expressed frustration at the president’s lack of accountability for the chaotic withdrawal. They also requested for the 13 service members killed in the Abbey Gate terror bombing to be honored at the White House, and for Biden to finally say their names,” the outlet reported. “Nobody’s paying for what they did. Nobody is saying ‘yes we messed up’ and ‘I’m sorry,’” said Carol Briseno, the mother of slain 22-year-old Marine Cpl. Humberto Sanchez. “Biden never said the 13 names. He didn’t say the names because he knows that he failed. That he actually failed our kids and failed our families and messed up,” she added. Darin Hoover, the father of Marine Staff Sgt. Darin Taylor Hoover, also expressed his anger that the president hasn’t “acknowledged our kids.” “Biden hasn’t said our kids’ names once. Not a single time,” he told the outlet. “These kids need to be celebrated. They need to be thanked … They need to have their names said, have them be remembered.” The Daily Caller pointed out that the White House did release a statement on the one year anniversary of the attack specifically listing the names of the soldiers killed. Christy Shamblin, the mother of Marine Sgt. Nicole Gee, called on Biden to host the 13 families at the White House. “I would love to meet with President Biden and have him outline the successes because I don’t see them,” Shamblin said. “I know that there are successes and families that are vetted and the ones who are making lives here, but you know to celebrate a few victories in the middle of a catastrophe is not really rational.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Never forget that Biden checked his watch at a funeral for the service members who fell in Afghanistan. https://t.co/eCjgOHl6sT— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) August 29, 2023
