And Sen. Ted Cruz is demanding answers:
Joe Biden made a decision to shove tens of thousands people on planes to make it look like his botched evacuation was going well. The truth is he had no idea who he brought to the US. That's why I led a letter today demanding accountability and answers. https://t.co/sTVqysGFla

Over to you, Jen Psaki. Care to update your past remarks?
PART 2: Remember when Jen Psaki told us "I can absolutely assure you that no one is coming into the United States of America who has not been through a thorough screening and background check process."?
Well, about that… https://t.co/eYY1xDAFPA

And over to you, Congress:
My prayers are with the courageous soldier and her family. This is yet another tragic failure in the vetting process for Afghan nationals. The American people deserve answers.https://t.co/UB8ehTjCwO
