(CNS News) -- In the wake of the bombing at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan that killed at least 12 U.S. soldiers and an unconfirmed number of civilians, House Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) said President Joe Biden has blood on his hands for failing to competently plan and execute the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

"There is blood on Joe Biden’s hands," she tweeted today.  

"Four marines (update: 12 soldiers) died in an attack he failed to prepare for during one of the most incompetent military operations in history," she said.  "Their lives can never be replaced."

"My prayers are with their families & the loved ones they’ve left behind," wrote Boebert.

Rep. Mark Green (R-Fla.), a veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, issued a statement today that said, "Despite President Biden’s lies, we have been told repeatedly that the Taliban were not letting Americans and our allies get to the airport safely. The deadly explosions today leave no room for doubt that the Taliban have, unsurprisingly, not kept up their word guaranteeing safe passage to the airport."

"The Taliban must be held accountable, and Joe Biden, the President of the United States—the leader of the free world—must act immediately and decisively," said Green.  

He continued, "The arbitrary 8/31 deadline must be extended indefinitely, the enemy who perpetrated this attack must be crushed, and the U.S. must make it clear: Any impediment to our evacuations will be met with the full force of the greatest superpower in the world. We will leave no man behind. Say it, Mr. President."
