Congressional candidate Andrew Badger is a former civilian intelligence officer who served in Afghanistan. He will share his insights about what went wrong there in a free ZOOM webinar on Thursday June 23 at 8 p.m.
LOGAN – Congressional candidate Andrew Badger will host a ZOOM webinar highlighting “What Went Wrong in Afghanistan” on Thursday, June 23.
The presentation will break down the tactical and strategic mistakes that led to America’s downfall in Afghanistan after 20 years of war, Badger explained.
The webinar will be held on Thursday at 8 p.m. First District voters can register for the ZOOM gathering at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN
“This issue is very important to me,” Badger said. “I volunteered to deploy to Afghanistan in 2014 as a civilian officer with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). My job was to recruit human informants to provide strategic intelligence support to our military warfighters.
“Simply put, we have to understand the lessons of the past, so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes in the future.”
Badger is locked in a three-way race for the Republican nomination for the 1st District’s seat in Congress. His opponents are the incumbent, U.S. Rep Blake Moore (R-UT), and former Morgan County commissioner Tina Cannon.
As a Republican running an “American First” platform, Badger believes that Democrats are destroying this country and establishment Republicans like Moore and Sen. Mitt Romney are letting them get away with it.
He cites the catastrophic collapse during our recent withdrawal from Afghanistan as proof of that.
“We need stronger Republicans in office who are prepared to fight back and actually hold the Biden administration accountable,” Badger says.
President Joe Biden needs to be held to account not just for the mistakes made during the withdrawal from Afghanistan, he argues, but also for our broken border, for Big Tech meddling in our elections and the never-ending money-printing that’s driving inflation.
During the webinar, Badger will also be answering questions about his campaign and his vision for a new foreign policy, including how the U.S. should approach the growing geopolitical threat from Communist China.
With ballots already in the mail, Badger will face off against Cannon and Moore in the June 28 GOP statewide primary.
