Texas Republicans have doused the Biden administration in criticism. Democratic Texans in Congress have had varied reactions — but some also fault for the president for a frantic scramble after the Taliban swiftly took control.
WASHINGTON — Despite a tumultuous four days in the American withdrawal from Afghanistan, Texans in Congress have expressed varied views over President Joe Biden’s handling of that mission.
Texas Republicans, including some who are military veterans, have doused the Biden administration in criticism. But the Republicans aren’t currently in power in Washington, D.C. That means much of the governmental fallout depends on Biden himself — or is in the hands of Democrats who control the committees that oversee American foreign policy and national security.
And congressional Texas Democrats have mixed opinions — and some criticisms — of how the withdrawal has gone down.
