Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw responded to the Taliban’s “demand” that Americans pull out of Afghanistan by the end of August. According to Dr. Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban spokesman, the deadline is a “red line.” And, if either the U.S. or the U.K. would seek additional time to continue evacuations, the answer is no — or there will be consequences.

“The only proper response from America to these dirty savage terrorists should be: Go f*** yourself,” Crenshaw tweeted.


Current evacuation efforts have been described as chaotic, with the Taliban controlling much of the traffic within the country. President Joe Biden said his administration has discussed “a lot” with the Taliban.

“They’ve been cooperative in extending some of the perimeter,” Biden said.

Crenshaw served as a Navy SEAL in the War in Afghanistan. He lost his right eye due to an improvised explosive device.
