Congressman Jack Bergman isn’t mincing words when discussing the current chaos unfolding in Afghanistan. In a matter of days, the country’s leadership went into exile, the army collapsed, and now perhaps over 10,000 Americans are trapped behind Taliban lines. Bergman says the situation is worse than Saigon in 1975, as the scale is much greater.
Bergman says the United States military needs to get back to basics.
Bergman will be in Washington, D.C. next week working on the National Defense Authorization Act. He says that given recent events, the negotiations could be intriguing.
Bergman stopped short of demanding a full house cleaning at the top. The congressman is the highest ranking Marine to serve in Congress. This subject is something he is intimately knowledgeable about.
