On Monday, two congressmen from the Sunshine State--Republican U.S. Reps. Scott Franklin and Michael Waltz--teamed up with U.S. Liz Cheney, R-Wy., in warning the Biden administration about including the Taliban in any power-sharing deal as the U.S. pulls its troops out of that nation.
Waltz pointed to incidents with the “Corps of Cadets being mandated to attend seminars and presentations on critical race theory that included inflammatory lessons and presentations that are detrimental to the mission and morale of the U.S. Army" and “requested the full presentation of seminars, presentations, assemblies, and other related curricula at West Point” in the letter he sent last week.

U.S. Sen.
