Congressman: Nancy Pelosi Blocked Reading Names of 13 U.S. Troops Killed in Kabul

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blocked GOP representatives from reading on the House floor the names of the 13 United States troops who were killed in a terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan last week.

“How badly do Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats want to cover up this Afghanistan debacle? They just blocked Members of Congress from reading the names of the service members who sacrificed their lives in Afghanistan last week,” Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) tweeted on Tuesday. “Don’t you think our military deserves better?”

Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), who was wounded during combat in Afghanistan, told The Floridian that Pelosi refused to recognize a Republican-only “moment of silence” for the fallen service members.

“We gaveled in, had a prayer, said the Pledge of Allegiance, took a moment of silence with pretty much all Republican veterans, then asked to be recognized to read names and bring up Afghanistan legislation,” Mast told the outlet. “They did not acknowledge us, and just closed the House down.”
