Menendez Statement on U.S. Killing of Al Qaeda Leader Ayman al-Zawahiri

U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement in reaction to President Joe Biden’s announcement that al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan:

“The Biden Administration has struck a serious blow to the Al Qaeda network.  I commend President Biden, and our brave intelligence officers and military personnel for remaining vigilant and prepared to protect our national security interests to eliminate terrorist threats.

 “A year after the withdrawal of our military from Afghanistan, there is no doubt the U.S. and our allies must maintain an ability to collect intelligence and conduct counterterrorism operations against those like al-Zawahiri who present a real and continued threat to our national security.

“I look forward to getting more details about this operation from the Biden Administration in the coming days.”

  1. Good for Biden. One win in a year and a half.

    Why Menendez needs to talk is merely for camera time and to prop up Biden’s failed presidency.

    The US left Afghanistan while leaving billions of dollars worth of arms and equipment. Afghanistan is again a safe place for terrorists.

    We could have at least gotten the arms and equipment out before leaving. How many other terrorist leaders are calling Afghanistan home once again. What is Biden, and Menendez doing about this?

    We have a horrible economy, high taxes, high inflation, crime out of control, threats from Russia, China, Islamic Radicals, an invasion of illegal aliens. What are Biden and Melendez doing? Very little.

    So Menendez and Biden can take the victory. Neither has many other accomplishments.
